  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    My SO and I adopted a 1 yr old male Shiba back in July from someone who needed to re-home him. SO has had Shiba's before and I have had multiple spitz breeds so neither of us were too worried about having issues with him. Initially, we were dealing with idiopathic aggression (would randomly bite...
  2. Introductions
    Hello, all! I’m Lacey. In November I picked up my Shiba Inu puppy Yokai from the breeder when she was 2 months old. As a first time dog owner, I was surprised by how much work goes into raising a puppy, but I have also enjoyed the challenge. Yokai is now 4.5 months old and is the light of my...

    Hello all, my apologies if this is the wrong place on the forum to put this. This is my first time using this. My family and I just took home a Pit Bull puppy around two weeks ago. She had recently turned 6 months April 1st. She's been great so far. She has some typical puppy problems like...

    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...

    My dog has seizures , a lot, on fourth of July. (Because of the very loud fireworks) trying to isolate her physically from the sound is impossible in my house and in this neighborhood, are there any medications (pill form or injections) I can give to her at home just to make her sleep for 12-16...
  8. 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. They recommended that I bring him in and they would put him under some anesthesia. There must be a simpler way! Does anyone have any pointers on brushing teeth...
  9. Dog Breeds
    Hello, we just adopted this precious angel from our neighbors who cannot keep her. They got her from a local shelter a few weeks ago but she needs more time and play and space to run than they can give her. They aren't sure what breed she is. She looks like a Shiba Inu/German Shephard Mix...
  10. Dog Breeds
    So I recently made the trip to the Boulder Valley Humane Society and left with a beautiful puppy named Farrah. At the shelter they said she was a german sheperd mix. Well I've had many people asking what else she might have in her. She literally looks like a mix between a fox and a coyote...

    Okay, so I haven't been able to get on here because of computer issues but I finally fixed my laptop. For those of you who don't know: Moko is a nine (almost ten) year old Shiba Inu rescued about a year ago. Background to the problem: It was awfully sunny outside and while feeding Moko I...
  12. Dog Breeds
    I've been tossing the idea around in my head of getting a Shiba Inu and basically I want to know how they behave and if they'll do well in a warm climate. I've watched almost every video on YouTube about Shibas and I've read several articles about them and stuff but I'd rather hear it from an...
  13. 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. She resource guards me against the cats (growls then lunges) and gets frustrated when she can hear but can't see the bird...
