About Shiba Inu

Country of Origin, History of the breed

The Shiba Inu is the smallest, and possibly the oldest, of the Japanese breeds. This alert and agile dog with keen senses was developed for hunting by both sight and scent in the dense undergrowth (brushwood) of Japan’s mountainous areas. ‘Shiba’ means ‘brushwood’ and it means ‘small.’ The word ‘Inu’ means ‘dog.’ They have become the number one companion dog in Japan.

This is a breed where the male looks very masculine and the female looks very feminine.

Personality

Temperament of the Dog

The Shiba Inu is agile, fast, affectionate, and loving. He is trainable and confident, fearless and kind. He does not bark much. He bonds tightly with his handler, but remains independent.

He can be aloof with strangers, but does well with children in his own family. He needs to be well socialized as a puppy.

He cannot be trusted with small pets that are rodents or small birds, but he is okay with cats and other dogs if raised with them. He is a good traveler, but he is never reliable off-leash.

He prefers a securely fenced yard, but can live in an apartment if walked sufficiently and given opportunity to play in a fenced area. He can walk for hours on end with his great endurance.

Better suited to an indoor or outdoor lifestyle?

The Shiba's waterproof, all-weather coat protects him in both cold and hot conditions, so he could live outdoors if you have a secure yard of reasonable size. However, he regards himself as part of the family and does not like to be left alone outside. This breed would be much happier living indoors with his family.

He prefers a securely fenced yard, but can live in an apartment if walked sufficiently and given opportunity to play in a fenced area. He can walk for hours on end with his great endurance.

Are they suited to homes with kids?

He can be aloof with strangers, but does well with children in his own family.

Activity Level

How Active is the Breed?

He is moderately active indoors. He likes running in a securely fenced yard, but can live in an apartment if walked sufficiently and given opportunity to play in a fenced area. He can walk for hours on end with his great endurance.

How Much Exercise Does the Dog Need at every stage of its Life?

Puppies need more exercise than adults. Trips to a fenced dog park a couple of times a week will be necessary if you do not have a fenced yard. Indoor play and walks help keep him exercised throughout life.

 

Grooming

Once a week brushing is necessary year-round. He is a seasonally heavy shedder.

 

Health and Care

He is generally healthy but beware that some lines have hip dysplasia, eye problems, or patella luxation.

Life Span: 12 – 15 years
