    New Additions
    I'm a fairly experienced dog owner, but my husband has not. We're getting a shiba inu in a few months and it's his dog. I've read that it's not a first time owner kind of dog, but I feel like my husband can adjust well seeing as he's not the only parent this puppy's going to have. I was...

    Dog Grooming
    Hi everyone, I have a Shiba Inu and he is three years old. He has recently been to the vet and they spotted some tarter on his teeth.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    So even though I told the lady who was giving away her breeding Shiba's that I have two cats and a bird she gave me the one who is 'jealous' of cats and loves to kill mice.
