Thank you all that have responded regarding our puppies. We have received quite a few applications, so will not be accepting any more for this litter. I have replied to all that have sent in an application, if you have NOT heard from me, please email me - I have tried to be sure not to miss anything but sometimes things go missing.

It is a bit of a waiting game right now as the puppies have just opened their eyes and starting to walk around and play; I like to see their personalities a bit to try and make the best matches. I will be in touch with all those that I have acknowledged receiving applications from.
Please feel free to contact us if you wish to update or withdraw your application.  

Please see below Puppy Placement, for details on price, age, shipping, etc.

Show Potential

We are pleased to work with responsible Shiba fanciers around the world, and proud of the contributions our dogs have made to the global Shiba Inu community. Please contact us if you are in search of a well bred, sound, healthy, and typey show dog. Here in Canada, we co-own the show quality puppies, as this allows us to have access to a dog for showing and breeding, and to assist those who may be novices in the dog sport. For those new to the concept, there is a lot of responsibility involved - living with an unaltered animal and all that entails (heats, hormone swings, etc), and being able to let your dog go away on weekends for shows (perhaps 4 or 5 times a year). Breeding entails the dog come back to us for the actual breeding, and the girls come back to us to whelp out the litter, which means they are with us for approximately 10 weeks. We do have very stringent requirements, both to protect the dogs well being and the future of the breed.

Contact Us

We hope the information provided on the website answers your basic questions in regards to the breed, our breeding principles, costs, and availability.

We do screen all applicants, as this breed is not suitable for everyone.  

We do not recommend this breed for first time dog owners, condo living, or for those who work long hours away from home.

Sample Contract

Sunojo puppy placement

Age:  Puppies do not leave their mothers until at least 9 weeks of age.

Shipping: We do NOT ship sight unseen - we prefer potential owners to come meet us and the dogs face to face prior to pick up. We may consider shipping if the puppy is travelling with new family, in the cabin. 

Price:  $2600 CDN on a spay/neuter contract (click here to view ​Sample Contract). INCLUDES the CKC certificate of registration, sales tax, veterinary record, current vaccinations & wormings, SunoJo puppy care manual, starter package (food, blanket, collar, toy), 30 day full return, 2 year limited warranty on genetic health (hips, knees, heart & eyes) and lifetime support.

Spay/Neuter: Unless you are purchasing a show potential puppy, all dogs are on a non-breeding contract, which means they are to be spayed/neutered by 1 year of age. Any dogs we have available that are old enough (over 10 months), will be spayed or neutered prior to leaving us.

Reservation/Wait List: We do not maintain a Waiting List or take deposits  - it can be a long time until a puppy is available and we do not feel it is fair to keep someone waiting, and waiting. Non-refundable deposits are required after applications have been reviewed and interview process completed. 

Factors We Consider:  Shibas are not the easiest breed to live with, and we believe they are too challenging for the first-time dog owner. They require a great deal of exercise, especially in the first year, so fenced yards are a preference. No puppy does well being left for long hours by themselves, so this is an important consideration as well.
