Overview
Originating in Japan, this ancient breed was utilized as a hunting dog of wild boar and deer. The Kai is rare and difficult to obtain. Previously considered too primitive to function as a family pet, they have proven to be amiable companions. They were designated as a "natural monument" in Japan in 1934.
Character
The Kai is of medium size, powerful, and muscular. A sturdy, exceptionally courageous breed, they move with agile, quick trot that enables them to maneuver rapidly over mountains and through forests. Kai's are also adept at climbing trees. Their most distinctive feature is the brindled coat. They are often referred to as the "Tora (tiger) Dog".
Temperament
The Kai breed is extremely devoted, affectionate, and loyal. The Kai is reserved with strangers and is a trustworthy guardian. They do will with children and dogs they have been raised with. Due to their high prey drive they are not recommended for homes with non-canine pets. They typically form a close attachment to one family member. They are naturally calm, quiet, and clean indoors. Kai's are not recommended for first time or inexperienced dog owners.
Care
Kai's require weekly brushing to keep the coat free of matting. Bathing should be done as needed. It is important to regularly clean the ears and nails should be trimmed on a routine basis. Due to the rarity of this breed there are no known health issues.
Coat
The Kai is a double coat breed. The outer coat is medium to long in length, straight, and harsh. The under coat is dense, thick, and soft. The fur is shorter on the ears, head, and legs. It is longer on the body and tail. Puppies are born black with fuzzy coats and the brindle emerges as the adult coat comes in. The brindle markings may not be fully apparent until adulthood.
Training
The Kai is exceedingly dominant and headstrong. Early, ongoing, and intense socialization and obedience is an absolute must. They will resent and not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
Activity
The Kai breed is not recommended for city or apartment living. They require an inordinate amount of physical exercise and mental stimulation. The Kai does best in a rural setting with ample room to safely roam, hunt, and run.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Kai Dog puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

When we had bought him from the pound, the owner could not tell us exactly what he was. He said it had to be a mixture of Chow Chow and Labador. But now that I see this breed, I'm having second thoughts. Could these breeds have black spots on their tongues like the Chow Chow?

Probably not a Kai. I have a dog that looks a lot like the Kai also, but with Black spots on her tongue. She is most likely Chow/ Cattle dog mix. I believe mind also has a bit of Corgi in her.

Yesterday we found a dog in our back yard, we have a fence and doors, but it looks like he or she managed to go under the fence. I made some research and it looks to be A Kai Dog, it has a tag with two phone numbers, one a man responded very unhelpful that he didn't lose a dog, the other is a temporary disconected number. The dogs name is Cinnamon. This is all we know. We are trying to find the owner. Miami, florida
