Red Shiba's are born with Black on their fur and muzzle. They loose this with their adult coat and turn a fire Red.
Several Of Our Shiba's are from top OFA tested Import LInes
Our Dogs are BRUCELLOSIS NEGATIVE! We randomly test our dogs ( Blood Tested through our Veterinarian and sent out to a lab. This is the MOST ACCURATE not rapid in house tests you can buy over the internet) so we are Brucellosis free here at Dakine. Make sure your breeder is testing for this VERY IMPORTANT. NOTE all pups born to a female who is positive will also be positive if they survive, and have major health issues, but can also be very silent in a nonbreeding dog and this is a major health threat to his/her humans who are unaware they have been exposed. It is on the rise and very serious and transferable to humans very serious. It is transferable through body fluids/saliva/fecal transferable those humans with the closest contact are at a higher risk of infection.
NOTE: PLEASE CONTACT US FOR UPCOMING PLANNED breedings AND EXPECTED LITTERS we only have a couple of litters per year for we are hobby breeders. We only breed when we want a planned litter.We can gladly provide you with References to those who have worked with us and have our dogs if you would like.
we are breeding for structure and temperament first we are not commercial breeders we are passionate about the breed and breed for purpose of the breed. All our Shiba Inu's have top CH lines and also Japanese Import lines. All Reputable breeders breed for the overall benefit of the breed for health, structure, and temperament not commercially (meaning have more than just a couple litters per year and having more than just a few adult dogs). color is secondary to health and structure and temperament. I have really focused on temperament in my dogs. I want to create a Shiba Inu who is a joy to live with and as responsive to his/her people as possible for the breed. I want them to be highly socialized for this can be a problem with the breed if they are not raised underfoot and handled all day.
Several of our dogs are from Exquisite top Japanse Import Champion lines. I have selected with research and knowledge of the breed with longevity structure and health is our only focus. When we have a litter we are breeding towards the AKC standard set for the breed. Health and temperament are our absolute top focus. With Shiba Inus we have really focused on temperament. We only have a few Shiba's Inus. This makes for a tight selective breeding program, so we have been extremely selective in the dogs we have chosen.
We do require that we speak with you over the phone before you get on our waitlist for one of our Shiba Inu dogs. How we place our dogs is a top priority this is our mission and we can be selective. For we put so much energy into raising them properly and right. We need to get to know you and you need to get to know us. I would be seriously skeptical about any breeder with a pay pal button on their site or pay your deposit now button. Yes, I have seen this! Dogs are family, not a buy-now product. I want to be able to talk to anyone who is interested in one of my dogs becoming a family member, or a working dog for them. I want you to ask me questions. I want to make sure this breed is the right fit for you. Makes for a happier dog who is more understood, and a happy family who is better informed and prepared.
Thank you for your understanding~
We do invite you to visit us if you like, but it can be hard for we are on the road a lot with our Frontline Equipment business So we visit all over Oregon, WA, Arizona in Yuma and Pheonix, Idaho, and California for the most part and pretty much fulltime RV'rs at this time, but often are staged in Oregon for puppy pick up but in the winter Redding CA, San Clemente etc, or even sometimes pups are picked up when we are on the road because we do travel a lot, so you are welcome to visit the dogs. All puppies will be in Oregon/CA most of the time in Oregon it will be Eugene Oregon for pick up and CA we are often in Redding or San Diego, San Clemente etc If you are wanting a specific area of pick up you can most definitely wait for that litter. Please Only if you are serious about having one of our dogs as family members do we allow visits. We do not open our home to just everyone. More foot traffic here can put our dogs at risk for the disease to be brought in. So those who are serious about our dogs and want to be put on our waiting list for a Shiba Inu you may visit but shoes must be removed at the door No exceptions and we do have a few other rules to a visit. Thank you for your understanding in helping us protect our dogs from the disease being brought in.
*We are available for Zoon Meeting/Chat at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to speak with us this way or by Facetime if you have an iPhone.
Breeding for our next show Shiba Inu prospect to place in a show home for AKC, International, and UKC dog shows. Due to my connections and passion for the breed. I also have placed many Service dogs, and am blessed to be connected through people to be able to do this. So all my planned breeding's I do have a great purpose. Breeding and working with Siberians and Shiba Inu's is a passionate hobby for the love of the betterment of the breeds.
With the demands of my dogs, I am producing I have held tight standards when I purchased my Shiba Inus that is my foundation. The temperaments of the dogs are so important and structure right there for longevity and health. this is a breed that breeders have not put enough focus on temperament in an effort to make a beautiful dog. Temperament gets lost if not one of the primary focuses. One thing you will find is many Shiba Inu temperaments are in the genetics of the dog, poor breeding, and not selecting for temperament results in poor temperament Shiba Inu's, so it took time to find the right dogs with the whole package I was looking for. This and health are my first concern, not the dog's color. I do not breed for color and even have chosen the stunning cream Shiba Inu based on temperament and health. Though this a fault in the show ring as per the color this is not a concern for me for I am breeding for the breed and to produce dogs who are healthy, stunning example structurally, and great family members. I am breeding for the best temperaments I can produce in this breed and have selected my dogs along with the bloodlines I was waiting for for so long. Temperament/health and looks not color this as a top focus and my breeding program. I am very proud of my breeding program. I love to show but absolutely must make dogs that are trainable and with good temperaments for the work many grow up to perform coming from my breeding.
If approved you are welcome to get on our waiting list at any time. Though time frame to produce a pup for you can not be guaranteed as litter size and gender and color is mother nature's call. It is very rare that we do not have a waiting list for our pups and most will be sold once they are born and people waiting are notified. I will say most good breeders will have people waiting.
Litter size can vary from 1-6 pups. We reserve the right to pick a puppy of any litter produced if needed at any time this may be for us personally or special need selection takes priority if a dog is a stand out for this as this is our purpose of breeding. This may not be every litter but understand these picks must take priority this is my hobby and my purpose of having a litter. Not being a commercial breeder rarely do breeders like me even break even. It is our passion and we take our purpose seriously. This Shiba Inu makes a great small Therapy dog. They are loyal and loving, easy to care for and with the great temperament behind them are an excellent choice for those wanting a smaller PTSD/Therapy dog. They can be stubborn but are highly intelligent.
* Please Do understand this breed is costly to raise can require a C section and they often have small litters C Sections are very expensive This can be $8,000-$10,500 depending on complications. They often can have small litters so there is a lot of outgo and money put into this hobby just in the delivery of the pups, Vet Care, and proper feeding.
NOTICE: Due to Covid 19 there will be additional precautions in place for I am personally high risk though I have taken the VACCINE and my daughter works as a Vascular Sonographer and works around very high-risk people. All Visits will be outdoors and limited contact all parties masked. PICK UP: Limit of two family members and both must be wearing a mask. Pick up will be outside sire and dam, of course, will be viewable. No exceptions I have to do this.
We will do Zoom Video chat if you like email@example.com is our Zoom.

Up to date shots but not over-vaccinated. We use an expensive cutting edge high titter parvo shot and a High titter Distemper shot we do not believe in over-vaccinating a young pup for most vaccines don't even provide protection until the final shot! Then at 8 weeks, they get their first combo puppy shot just before they leave to their Forever families if they are staying with us and not placed yet they will be given booster shots every 3 weeks until 20 weeks of age this ensures good protection the final shot is the MOST IMPORTANT SHOT.
* All pups remain with dam and the litter until 8 weeks of age allowed to nurse and be naturally weaned. This allows the dam to continue to educate her pups, better immunity for longer nursing, better socialization for the pup. BREEDERS WHO TAKE THE DAM AWAY TO EARLY ARE IN MY OPINION HURTING THE PUPS. So many breeders push to wean pups are 5 to six weeks from nursing. Pups need mom still for education and added nutrients of the milk supply. A dam will naturally fully wean her pups and not let them, nurse.
*will be on 7 surfaces by 7 weeks ( this helps to make a well-adjusted dog, with more confidence this stimulates the nervous system.
*Utilize Puppy potty pad training starting at 3-4 weeks of age. We use washable puppy pads that the pups use very well. We do a lot of laundry during this time and keep them super clean this way they fully housebreak easier. WE DO NOT take the pups outside on surfaces/grass before the first vaccine such a huge risk for the pups. Not worth it. First vaccine should never take place before 7 weeks of age and it takes weeks for antibodies to start to build. So because of this, we keep their potty breaking to potty pads at this very young and vulnerable age. Also, we do not EVER use shavings or newspapers both are super toxic and can cause future health issues.
*Heartworm Prevention n( All of our dogs are heartworm negative V/A blood test and on Revolution and also get a dose of ivermectin 2x a month.
*Puppy Vet exam or Vet Tech exam by me if we are traveling just before they leave at 8 weeks checking for any issues and overall health of the pups before leaving. We use Oregon Mobile Vet for this so as to not expose them to disease in a Vet office. They come to our home. The only time we do not do this is if we are traveling with a litter and timing doesn't add up. This is our Vet and the only one we trust. I am a Vet Tech and go over every pup several times before they leave for any issues.
* none of our pups go home with Fleas or ticks we are extremely careful for I am highly allergic to fleas.... ( We recommend Revolution all of our dogs are on this you need a prescription from your vet). But far worth it to protect your Sibe from Heartworms and Fleas, Ticks, Lice, Mites. All of our dogs are heartworm and Brucellosis negative. You will find a link on the Siberian Husky health page to learn more about Revolution it is the safest anti-flea/tick/lice/mite treatment for dogs through my studies. I highly recommend it. It is not as effective for ticks if you are in a heavy tick-infested area I recommend adding more tick protection when needed, but our dogs have never had ticks using this product.
*Dewormed starting at two weeks of age and kept up until the pup goes home to you so it is done every two weeks. Being a vet tech I can do fecal floats to check stool when needed.
*Raised 100% inside our home until they go home with their new families. THIS IS HUGE!
They are not in an outdoor kennel. They are in our home underfoot until the day they go home and handled and played with daily. Exposed to different sounds and surfaces, carried around, sit with us on the couch socialized in a safe loving, clean environment. Summer litters may see some patio time after use of Kennel Sol on the pavement prior to them being allowed on it. This due to not being vaccinated and the risk of protozoa infections as well from the grass and soil we do not allow them on the grass until they are a bit older and have a vaccine in them.
*Neurostimulation: Now this is huge huge huge our pups receive this and it makes such a huge difference 30% more brain cells, better immune system, overall health, confidence. READ MORE HERE: https://breedingbetterdogs.com/article/early-neurological-stimulation
* Used to having toenails trimmed and teeth looked at.
*Temperament testing: We temperament test every puppy several times before they go so you know if your dog should be Alpha or more submissive.
*We have children whom we have come over and play with our puppies, this also helps with the socialization and gets them used to kids and the quick movements, etc. Plenty of nieces and nephews and family and friends for this.
*Started on Recall training command ( This we start with every meal when they begin to eat solids) this is a very good thing to have with this breed for they can be very stubborn and not come when called. Our adults are on recall and come when called most of the time lol. So important to have with this breed. We were so disappointed when two of our dogs came to us lack of socialization. I got them when they were older pups, been a real challenge for me even as a trainer please make sure your breeder is raising pups in the home under feet exposed to things.
* Also ALL OF MY PUPPIES go home with a lifetime of breeder support. I can provide you with vaccine info, deworming, issues with training/illness whatever comes up you have for the life of your dog! I am the breeder who is involved as you want me to be with you and your dog. I am a Vet Technician by trade though I do not work in a Vet Office anymore. These Siberian pups are my kids going off into the world, I want to help you be successful parents to living life and part of your family. They are man's best friend I have put so much into them to get them here and raise them until they go home with you.
PLEASE READ NOTE: Once again it is so important this breed is raised in a very social environment inside a home environment. They can be bred for temperament, but without being handled and exposed to noise and people daily they will be a challenge to say the least. I can not stress this enough, being a dog trainer I see so much of this. Breeders just don't understand you can't raise them outside in a kennel or garage and have a dog that is truly socialized. Huge hurdles ahead for those who get pups not socialized enough. Seems like almost every dog I have gotten from a breeder has been this way. So very disappointing to say the least. Breeders and People just don't get it. Our dogs are family members. Yes, this is very hard work and challenging to have them inside your home for 8 weeks, cleaning up after them etc. This is why many breeders opt to raise litters outside. I, however, choose to work hard and give my pups the absolute best social start and it pays off ten folds! My clients are very happy and rave about our dogs.
