Shiba Inu & Japanese Chin

October 15, 2019

No puppies currently available. The next litters are planned for the spring of 2020; timing is completely dependent on Mother Nature and I cannot be any more exact than that.

Application Forms will be available after breedings have been done. If you submitted an Application in 2019, they will be kept through 2020.  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 community. Please contact us if you are in search of a well bred, sound, healthy, and typey show dog. Here in Canada, we prefer to 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 8 weeks of age.

Shipping: We do NOT ship - it is too stressful, too expensive, and too difficult to provide support for new owners. 

Price:  $2500 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 until puppies are actually born - 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. When a Shiba Inu is available, this website will be updated.
