Hokusei Kashinoki Hokkaido Ken and
I believe in the versatility of the Shiba breed and my motto has become “Shibas Can Do Anything!” Together we have accomplished many "firsts" for me, and earned titles in Conformation, Rally, Agility, Flyball, Lure Coursing, CGC, Barn Hunt, as well as enjoyed events like Herding and Truffle Hunting. I don't compete to earn ribbons, but I am proud of some of the "firsts" we have accomplished for the breed (my Shibas were the first and second to ever earn Lure Coursing titles), and my girls are top ranked in Flyball.
I believe that training and socializing never stop, and I prefer to use the Least Invasive Minimally Aversive (LIMA) training in every day life. I do not advocate Dog Whispering techniques and am happy to explain why I don't think they are effective tools to use with Shibas. I am happy to show you all of the many ways dogs can be successful without punishment based training.
I feed a combination of raw, cooked, and prepared foods like the Honest Kitchen, Darwins, Acana, Wellness and Evangers. We do most training at It's A Dogs World in Sumner, and spend a day most weekends practicing Flyball with the Seattle Flydogs, or brushing up on Barn Hunt. Our summers are busier with Flyball demos, agility trials and doggy playdates with friends, with occasional doggy group holidays up and down the coast.
I follow Dr. Jean Dodds vaccine protocol as a preference and am conservative with vaccines.

Welcome to the official website of Hokusei Kashinoki Hokkaido Ken and Shiba Inu breeder.
I am a Shiba Inu breed enthusiast since 2007, and Hokkaido Ken fan since 2010, livng in Puyallup, WA. I own a very small number of dogs who are my pets. My goal as an enthusiast is firstly to enjoy them as pets, in and out of the dog sports and show rings. Showing is a minor part of the work I do with my dogs, as my real passion is performance sports and breed education. I do realize an important part of working with well bred dogs and showing them, is going to involve responsibly breeding them on occasion, and I'm lucky to have had good mentoring for the few litters I have produced to date. My objective is to produce the next generation of healthy active companions with correct type, drive and angulation for companionship and performance work, and breedings are limited. Shibas are my first and primary passion, but I do dabble in the other native Japanese dog circles including occaisional importing and breeding and education.
