 If you are interested in a puppy please fill out our questionnaire so we know a little about your family and dog experience.  This will help us to match you with the right puppy for your family and to answer questions you have about the breed.

We have puppies available.

Connect with us on Facebook!  Kayobishiba

Alaskan Klee Kai are similar in size to the Shiba Inu.  They are a UKC recognized breed, not a mixed breed. They are starting the process of AKC recognition!  They are very social with other dogs.  They bond closely to their owners and require socialization as they can be very standoffish with strangers.



We have CH Zumi bred to CH Fuego due July 21st black & tan and red puppies possible.

Tsuki has been bred to CH Quinn due July 24th Black & tan and red puppies possible.

CH Esme has been bred to CH Joujiro due August 2nd Black & tan and sesame puppies possible.

Puppies will be ready to go at approximately 9 weeks of age.

We will be taking deposits to reserve a puppy from one of these litters after the litter is born.  Deposit information is on our questionnaire.


If you are looking for a purebred Shiba puppy there are some things you should ask the breeder before you buy.  When we have asked people what is most important in a puppy the answer is usually HEALTH and TEMPERAMENT!

1. Does the breeder health test their breeding stock for common health problems in the breed.  OFA on hips, eyes and patellas. This is not a 100% guarantee but it is much less likely that your puppy will have these problems that are COMMON in Shibas!  Any ethical breeder will be able to provide the clearance # from OFA.  We belong to many FB Groups and talk to many Shiba owners and there are a lot of Shibas requiring surgery to fix patellas or remove eyes.

2. Does the breeder show their dogs?  I get that most people do not want a show dog, so why is this important?  A show dog must be confident, able to have strangers examine him and be able to perform as trained in stressful situations.  I have seen many inquiries from people frustrated because their dog is nervous, extremely shy around new people and fearful of normal household activities.  This personality is inherited!  

3. Can I visit your Shibas. While it is normal for breeders to not allow visitors see newborn puppies, you should be able to visit and see their other dogs.  A puppy mill will never let you see their adults.  They are fearful of strangers and many of these places have a lot of other breeds and mixes.  Puppy mills will meet you off site so you can't see the puppies and how they behave in a familiar setting.

4. Are the parents AKC registered?  Again, many people do not care to register their dog so why does this matter to you?  AKC has standards of care and will inspect your kennel.  Many breeders could not pass AKC inspections for basic cleanliness and care so they made up their own registries, ACA, APRI and CKC.  With some of these registries you send in a photo and they will send you a registration paper! No proof that the dog is even purebred.  I would NEVER recommend buying a puppy from any breeder using these alternate registries.  Often it goes hand in hand with no health testing by OFA and many times these dogs are even mixed with other breeds to create "rare" colors such as pinto's.  

If the breeder passes these tests you have a much better chance of getting a healthy puppy with a great personality.


We have puppies ready to go to their new homes now.  Due to a couple of cancellations we have two girls ready to go now. 

We have a black & tan boy available out of CH Tenkou and CH Drama $2600 plus tax.
This black and tan girl was the smallest in her litter. She was born on March 20th.  Her coat has too soft a texture for showing. $2400 plus tax.

We also have a black & tan girl with a split nose available for $500 contact us for more information.

I have a 10 month old red boy available.  Very smart, gets along well with other dogs. He is very active and playful. He does not do well in a crate. I would recommend a home with a fenced yard, no cats, no kids. 

Yogi is neutered and is $1600.

We are retiring our black & tan boy Champion Tenkou.  He is independent and good with most female dogs.  He is crate trained.

He does not like kids as he is grumpy when he is sleeping and does not like having his tail touched. so an adult only home is necessary.

$600 with neuter agreement 

We are retiring a red girl named Kiyomi.  She is sweet and gentle and likes to play in the fenced yard. She is crate trained. $600 with a spay agreement.

Ask us about our Extended Family program.  This is an opportunity for local families who are interested in showing and breeding purebred Shiba Inu or Alaskan Klee Kai to own a quality show dog at a low cost. We do not charge more for show puppies as a co-ownership is maintained.   I will be working with you and your dog to mentor you as you learn about the breed, showing and breeding dogs.   Please send me an e-mail if you are interested in learning more!

Our vet will NOT do this procedure due to unnecessary health risks.  I have seen several dogs that I have sold who have been neutered before 12 weeks of age and they look significantly different from other Shibas in their litter. It has been known to cause an increase in orthopedic problems such as hip dysplaysia and patellar luxation, as well as incontinence issues!
