From Amber about her Shiba Inu Koda:
I can't believe it's been over a year since I sent you the last update. Time flies.. He's a wonderful dog and we're so happy we got him from you.
We have a new addition to our family as well. We had a daughter and Koda has been wonderful with her. He's very tolerate of her crying and he's always sniffing her and he'll even give her kisses. He even seems to be more protective. He barks when people come to visit and when UPS delivers. Once visitors pet him, he's fine, but he lets us know when someone is here. :)
From Julie in Texas about her Shiba Inu Mingo:
Just wanted you to know that our puppy is doing well. His name is Mingo. He is growing and learning new tricks every day. He is very smart - stubborn - but he learns very quickly. I want to thank you for house breaking him - that has saved us a lot of time and effort - and he does very well. Thank you again, he is a wonderful edition to our family!
From Kayla in Illinois about her Shiba Inu Zoey:
Everything is going great so far. Zoey is doing really well I think. The car ride went fine and she's only had a few accidents since shes been home. She's been pretty good with letting us know when she needs to go out. She's very playful and definitely loves to chew on things but we love her and we're excited to finally have her home. She's definitely a spoiled puppy.
From Wei in California about her Shiba Inu BenBen:
Thank you so much to bring BenBen to our home. He had a safe trip, and has settled down at the new home with our family. He's a happy boy, energetic and cute, he's born to be star, from airport to home, to anywhere he is the focus. Everybody wants to touch this cute fluffy 'lil biscuit.
Thank you for the extra dog food and all docs. He will miss you and his home town. I'll take more photos and keep you updated. Feel so lucky to know you and have BenBen join us.
Have a great weekend
From Carlos and Richard in California about their Shiba Inu Ceviche:
The puppy is doing great and we love him very much. He is enjoying his classes at the Petsmart store and is the smartest puppy in the class. He is proceeding with his vaccinations and is in perfect health and growing nicely. We have not had him out much at the advice of the veterinarian yet, we need one more shot, but he loves his home and has accustomed very well. He can run around at incredible speeds, but is generally very careful, does not chew furniture and behaves and obeys well for a puppy his age. He is nearly potty trained, still working on it. Again, thanks for sending us such a beautiful dog, our Ceviche. We will keep in touch with you on his progress.
Carlos and Richard
From Sandra in New York about her Shiba Inu Didier:
Puppy Didier is doing great, and we have a vet check up appointment, stool sample and further immunization set up.
Thanks again, Karen! He is a wonderful, loving and well-tempered dog. What a sweet, obedient pup. That says something great about your training!
From Suzanne in Nebraska about her Shiba Inu Zuki:
Zuki is a joy! She is so smart and so fiesty. My vet offered to buy her from me and said she is a perfect shiba inu and should be a show dog! She is very happy and healthy. I love her and my other shiba inu is warming up to her.
From Tara in New York about her Shiba Inu Nacho:
Happy New Year!!! Hope you had a great holiday! Thought I would send you a couple of cute photos of Nacho... one is him enjoying a taste of our empty Champagne bottle on New Years' Eve and the other was his first snow experience in Ohio over Christmas. He loved burying his nose in the snow, trying to get down to the grass! It was funny. The last one is just a cute picture of him passed out on his favorite toy. :)
He's doing great, has all his shots now and his "big day" (of surgery, that is) will be here before we know it.
Hope all is great with you!!
Talk to you again soon,
From Lindsey in Iowa about her Shiba Inu Suki:
I just wanted to give you an update on Suki. She is doing very well! She will be 4 months old on the 12th and is getting so big! We never have a dull moment with her :) she is always making us smile. She didn't take long to potty train at all and hasn't been chewing on our things too much, she's got plenty of toys to keep her busy! She loves playing with my sister's puggle when she comes to visit, they are only 4 months apart and have so much fun together! Thank you for being such a great breeder and taking care of her the first 2 months. We couldn't be happier to have her as a part of our family! I've attached some pictures as well, she is 2 months old in the first one and 3 months old in the other 2. Thanks again for everything!
From Theo and Erica in Alabama about their Shiba Inu Barry:
KAREN;) THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING THE BEST SHIBA BREDER EVER! BARRY HAS BEEN SUCH A GOOD BOY, AND YOU CAN SEND HIS NIECES AND NEPHEWS TO US ANYTIME....... SERIOUSLY! WE LOVE HIM TO DEATH!!!!
ERICA & THEO<3
From Amber and Steve in Connecticut about their Shiba Inu Koda:
I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how Koda is doing. He is doing wonderfully! He never once peed in the house. He really did come potty trained. Every time I tell someone we never had to potty train him, they don't believe me. He is so smart and a quick a learner. He's so full of energy! We got him to sit, down, up, left paw, right paw, high five, jump, and double high five within the first three weeks! We're still working on rollover. He'll start puppy kindergarden (socialization) next weekend. Steve and I just love having him in our family, although he has also found a love for my shoes.... I've attached a picture we just look last weekend in our backyard.
Thank you so much for being so patient with me and all my questions. The hardest part was waiting. We're so happy we got him from you!
From Lauren in Texas about her Shiba Inu Kohana:
Everything is going great! I absolutely love Kohana. She is an amazing dog as well as more than I expected. She does great in the house. I don't even have to crate or baby gate her. She gets along with the cats too.I took her to my mom's house on the creek and she loved running around on our acre + of land.She kept jumping in and out of the koi pond!I also was witness to the "shiba scream" when I left for work one day, forgot something, and was then surprised to see her on the couch with her head thrown up letting it rip! She also is not a running trail dog, which is fine with me. I took her to Memorial Park, a huge jogging trail with hundreds of people, and instead of running next to me she laid down in the middle of the path. I had to drag her a little bit to get her to stand up. Basically, I was the only dog owner who was carrying their dog! Altogether, I have enjoyed my adventures with Kohana and would like to thank you for allowing her to be in my life.
From Sherry in New Jersey about her Shiba Inu Simba:
Attached are a few pictures of Simba (some are from a couple of weeks ago and the one where he is in the snow is pretty recent). He is healthy, and
growing up so fast! We all love him very much!
From Tracy in Illinois about her Shiba Inu puppy Miley
(1)- Miley is the most amazing little girl, we love her dearly, she is very smart, and wiley, everywhere we go with her people are just amazed at how beautiful she is.
(2) - Our little Miley is perfect, we just love her so much, she is great at going potty outside, when I go to work I can't wait to get home to play with her, and give her kisses and hugs.
Thank-You for such a perfect little puppy. Tracy
From Melissa in California about her Shiba Inu puppy Shiba:
Shiba is doing very well, the happiest puppy, loves all of her aunts and unkles and is always full of curiosity, spunk and shiba smiles :) She has made me very happy.
I would of course be ok with being a reference.
I attached a couple pictures for you to see as well :)
From Jennifer in Florida about her Shiba Inu puppy Ronin:
Hello Karen I don't mind if you give them my email. I would love to tell them how great the pup is and how great you are.
Tanner is Ronin now and very handsome. He is so playful and so happy. I am so happy I got him from you. This was the best thing ever.
I hope you are well.
From Austin in Texas about their Shiba Inu puppy Kobi:
Pick up went well! We already love him so much! He's very smart tho and has taken well to my pomeranian.
I'll attach some pictures.
From Rick in Iowa about their Shiba Inu Koda:
Well, we got home from our 2 hour trip and I thought we would give Koda the grand tour and then practice the bathroom process. He walked around for about 30 seconds and found his new puppy bed. Climbed on it and peed. :)He has been doing really good ever since. We have a puppy pad that he uses at night if he can't wait it out. He's only used it twice. He's never pooped inside so that's excellent.The kids are having a blast and he appears to be settling in pretty well.We have a ton of pictures, but this one is awesome!
From Kelly in California about her Shiba Inu Cooper:
It’s been a year since I got my shiba inu from the farm. I just want to give you an update on how the baby boy is doing in my family.
I named him cooper, he’s parents are Tucker and Meka. He’s doing so well and brings a lot happiness to the family.
He’s also doing well with my cat, they are about the same age and have been the best friends forever.
From Bill in Michigan about his Shiba Inu Beau:
Hi Karen, Beau is a bundle of joy, very hyper and has lots and lots of energy. We have to work on wearing him down during the whole day that way he isnt so hyper. He is almost 100% potty trained, when he comes out of his crate in the morning he gets excitied to see us and leaks alittle, but other than that he has been perfect. And he walks great on a leash already. He is very smart and intelligent. I am surprised on how smart he really is. At about 6-7 a.m. he is up and ready to go. Within a few days he had the whole house inspected and the yard, he knows every nook and cranny. Thanks again for taking such good care of Beau.
