Our Breeding Practices

Behaviour and socialisation

We actively wean pups prior to their 6 week vaccination so the pups are more reliant upon us (human interaction) than their mother. Our pups are provided with safe spaces filled with toys, obstacles and other enrichment objects - like a balance board, a swing & multiple levels to traverse and tunnels. We group feed…

Our parents are all health tested prior to breeding - AVA Hips & elbow grading, patella grading by the vet conducting the hip and elbow grading and ACES Eye Certification. A copy of all parental health checks is provided in the puppy folder or supplied in advance of the pup if requested. Any results outside of…

Home environment

Our pups are born in the house (in our bedroom) and do not go out to the kennels until 4 weeks - sometimes longer (it is weather dependent - they stay in the house longer if its the middle of winter). Our kennels have heating and cooling and cameras so we can keep an eye on them. The pens are set up with heating…

Additional Tests

Kortmar Shiba Inu conducts 1 additional tests available for the Shiba Inu.

stethoscope iconPhysical Test

An eye certificate means the breeder has had their breeding dogs examined by a veterinary ophthalmologist, to confirm they are not affected by any eye conditions which may be passed down genetically to their puppies. If relevant for the breed, it also includes running DNA tests to confirm the dog is not a genetic carrier of hereditary eye diseases, such as Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA). It includes breeders who have participated in the Australian Canine Eye Scheme (ACES).

About the Breeder

A little about us

With 35 years in purebred, pedigreed dogs, I really dont know any different. They are a passion, an obsession and such a part of my life that I dont know that I could every truly walk away from them. I truly loved my time with Alaskan Malamutes and the occasional Norwegian Elkhound but the Shiba Inu, that has taken…

Why we got involved in breeding

I have a love for independent Spitz breed dogs - Alaskan Malamutes for 25 years and now Shiba Inu for the last 15 years.

Our special touch

I am very good at raising pups - I do a lot of research, document our progress, keep you up to date and invest a lot of myself in my pups. Our puppy owners become part of the Kortmar Shiba Family - its a great support network and we stay in touch.
