Shiba Inu & Japanese Chin

December 30, 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, there is no need to submit another but you will need to contact us to advise if you are still interested. 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:  $3000 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. If puppies are available, we will take non-refundable deposits after applications reviewed/screened. 

Factors We Consider:  Shibas are not the easiest breed to live with, and we belive 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.
