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".

Does your Kai Dog bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Kai Dog puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

I have a dog who looks just like a Kai Dog breed. 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.

Both of those breeds can have black spots on their tongue. However, it takes more than that to guess a breed. That said, it's possible. I've heard about Kais getting mislabeled. I guess that's because, they're so rare.
