Getting Ready

There are many things to consider when acquiring your new puppy. First off, research and find a responsible breeder . Next is to find both a veterinarian and an obedience trainer that you are comfortable with. We have provided you a listing of our favourite places below. It is important to attend two levels of obedience training “ Puppy basics and Beginner Obedience “ as well as Puppy Playtime, usually available at the same training facility.

As an experienced breeder, it is my responsibility to teach you the basics of starting off with your new Shiba Inu. When you arrive to pickup your new baby, we will hold a class and you will learn the basics needed to get you off to a positive start.

We can supply you with a Puppy Kit that contains all the items you will need to get started with your new Puppy. If purchased separately these items cost between $400 and $500. Ask us about our special discounted Puppy Kit pricing.
