Summer/fall 2018-2019 waitlist is open for Hokkaido.
I have my next 3-4 breedings planned and am screening for a few more spots for 2018, and curating an interest list for 2019. I get dozens of inquiries each week but very few are suitable to join my extended hokkaido family. I also don’t take deposits far in advance. I need dedicated homes who are understanding of the culture Hokkaido come from, who are interested in learning about and discussing the breed, with the appropriate physical means to care for these dogs. That includes:
- Stable housing, preferably local.
- Relevent dog experience or desire to go through the paces and visit my dogs multiple times for new dog owner education.
- Access to yard/parks for potty and exercise.
- Ability to hire a dog sitter/walker/dog daycare if working away from the home where the puppy would otherwise be confined for greater than 4 hour stretches of time on a ROUTINE basis, ie, if you work 8 hour days 5 days a week, you’ll need to get breaks for your puppy somehow for potty, exercise, and socialization.
- Must take puppy classes before puppy hits the 12 week mark, and an additional set of higher level general training class that is not specifically for puppies.
- Pet insurance: must be able to pay for monthly pet insurance, or set up a pet savings account for emergencies.
- Spay/Neuter: I place all of my dogs on conditional contracts and some puppies will be required to be kept intact until physical maturity to determine suitability for breeding. This is a preservation effort and my breedings are geared towards that, so some homes I give greater preference too if they are willing to co-own and make their dog available to me later on for breeding if it’s determined that pet is of good physical and mental quality to assist in preservation.
- Engagement: I want to know a potential home values their Hokkaido by demonstrating how well they will take care of it, and not just wanting one to be an ornament or status symbol. Things like hikes, camping, sleeping with the family, road trips, classes together, going to the beach etc are all things a Hokkaido would love to do and those are plans I like to see potential families make for their puppies.
Here is my line up of potential breedings:
- Summer 2018: Kurasi x Import
- Summer 2018: Umma x Ashi
- 2019: Umma x Import?
- 2019: Miki x frozen sperm from Genji or Teddy depending on Miki’s health checks.
Please submit an application request to email@example.com and introduce yourself. A “refundable at my discretion deposit” will be required once an application has been approved. Puppy price is $3000 total for these breedings due to cost of doing the AI breedings and cost of testing that will be required for the puppies gene swabs and eye exams.
There are no Shiba litters available, however, there is a Hokkaido litter planned from Kurasi and Ashitaka. Waitlist is tentatively filled. Test Mating pedigree: http://www.hokkaido-pedigree.com/testmating.php?dam=63647&sire=63703

Zuki delivered 4 healthy vigorous red/sesame girls. All are spoken for at this time, and further inquiries may be made to their owner Pam Carlson of Pipers Creek Shibas
Farrah’s first litter was born, and none are available for sale.
Plans are underway for a late spring breeding around June 2013 from AKC Championed and health tested parents. There may be 1 or 2 pet puppies available on a spay neuter contract to approved homes in the area. Please inquire via email, at firstname.lastname@example.org
There are also two adult male Shiba Inu available for placement to screened and approved homes where they can be loved and spoiled. They are show champions who are retiring and are currently living with a reputable AKC breeder.
About these boys: they are gorgeous and well socialized stable adult males. They can play with any other dog without issue and are extremely sweet and social. They are 100% health certified with OFA and completely healthy. Breeder requests a contract prior to placement.
We want the very best homes for them, where they can be spoiled and get their daily walkies and enjoy their own couch and toys. Please email inquiry to email@example.com with detailed information about yourself and your living situation.
We are anticipating a Spring 2013 breeding.
Pups have all found great homes!
There is a litter of puppies born 10/23/11, 1 red male, and 2 females (red and cream) for sale in Puyallup, WA from a reputable show breeder. They are AKC registered, both parents are Champions and OFA health certified. They are current on medical care and have had a lot of attention and socializing.
We also have an older puppy bitch we want to rehome. She is Farrah’s half sister, and Ike’s niece, and a really sweet girl. This is what her mom has to say about her:
“This is Pippa, a 7 month old female shiba pup. She was raised in a show home, but went a bit oversize and cannot be shown. She is for sale from her breeder on a spay contract.
Pip went to her first home at 8 weeks (mine). She has been raised as a house pet, running with other shibas. She is house and crate trained, and knows her dog-to-dog manners. She has been through two puppy classes (socialization and beginning obedience). She has been well socialized in all kinds of public places, and will go anywhere happily. Being raised for show, she is good at having her nails trimmed and somewhat used to baths (though they are not her favorite). She’s also very comfortable meeting strangers.
Pip’s personality is all GO. She is fearless, friendly, and active. She LOVES her cookies, and has all kinds of working drive. She has been familiarized with skateboards, tippy boards and tunnels, and she loves it all. She cries with excitement and pulls to go INTO training class. She is very good at focusing during training. She loves to play fetch and tug. When she is tired, she is quite cuddly. (This runs in her line.) She gives great kisses, too.
Pip still needs work on jumping up (she REALLY wants to see people), play nipping, and chewing. If she is bored she will go grab a verboten item and bring it to you so you can watch her chew it. That’s your hint to spend some time with her! I have been successfully managing her with redirection to toys and by tiring her out with (a lot!) of fetch and tug. She walks fine on a leash, but she still pulls when she is excited. Pip learns very well with positive training techniques. If there’s a cookie involved, she’s a VERY quick study.
Pip does guard her food and treats from other dogs if left with them. She can take treats in a line of other dogs just fine, and will take polite turns licking a spoon with other dogs, etc. She does not guard anything from humans. In short, she likes to be dominant with other dogs, but will defer to humans without difficulty.
Physically, Pip has had 4 sets of DHPP vaccinations and her 6 month rabies shot. She is a sturdy, athletic shiba, with good bone and rear angulation. She runs very fast. She is a daughter of CH.Tenkai go Ryuukyuu Uruma, who was BISS at the 2010 Shiba Inu National Specialty show.
I really regret having to part with Pippa, but I don’t have room for another pet. She is going back to her breeder/co owner for sale to a pet home; I would just like to steer potential homes toward her breeder that might be able to continue her Shiba sports training – she so loves training and activities!”
