Overview
A very bold, lively and sweet dog, the Shiba Inu has won the hearts of many and has grown in popularity. This breed makes a good companion and does very well with children. Somewhat wary of strangers, but warms up quickly.
Character
This agile breed is playful and energetic. Lively, charming, and affectionate, this breed can also be independent while demanding attention from his master. The Shiba Inu should not be kept around small animals but can do well with cats.

Does your Shiba Inu 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 Shiba Inu is intelligent, alert, and makes a good alarm dog at times. This breed can be prone to barking. This breed can prove to be a handful if not handled by an experienced owner as they tend to be willful.
Care
The Shiba Inu has a coat that is fairly easy to groom. Rubber brushing does well with the coat of this dog to remove dead and loose hair. Seasonally a heavy shedder, many owners rely on regular professional grooming to keep shedding to a minimum. Do not bathe this dog regularly as it will remove the waterproofing this breed retains.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Shiba Inu has a thick double coat. Outercoat should remain stiff and straight. The undercoat should be soft and thick. This breed has bushy hair on its tail and its hind legs.
Training
This intelligent dog is pretty easy to housebreak, but obedience training should start at a young age. Being that this dog is high energy, they require a firm handler, and can be stubborn at times. 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 Shiba Inu 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 Shiba Inu is not recommended for kennel life and should be kept as a member of the family as he loves attention. An average sized yard would suit this dog well; however regular walks can be sufficient. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

My Shiba Inu seems depressed since we moved to a new place. I run her twice a day and we still aren't seeing any improvement. What do I need to do so I don't have to find a new home for her?

You should never rehome your dog unless it is for an extreme emergency reason. This is not one. Depending how many years your Shiba Inu spent in the old home and if you moved into a different type of home, such as from a single family home to an apartment -- she is still adjusting. If you are still unpacking, that could be very unsettling for her. If you are in a whole new town, she could be more frightened than actually depressed. Try to keep her new routine the same, give her extra attention and love when you are with her. I would also suggest to go exploring with her, take her to new places and feed her yummy treats so she starts to feel comfortable in the new home/area.

I read about Shiba Inus for years and have a puppy. I love her and we are great together and after a few months with me it is strange how below average her intelligence is and she has never made a sound or barked. I am thrilled to have a happy and loving dog in my home. Does anyone else have a Shiba Inu that does not fit the profile?

Be happy that your dog is not a barker. A lot of Shiba Inus are! If you are concerned for your dog then I would suggest taking her to the vet. But if your Shiba is just special and you aren't worried about her, then just enjoy your pretty pup.

Our neighbor owns a female Shiba Inu. Pretty dog, but does bark a lot especially when in the back yard at any passing people.

My Shiba Inu doesn't bark either and I like it that way. She will bark sometimes if a stranger walks in the house, but other than that she is more like a cat. I wouldn't say she has below average intelligence, she is just very aloof and does what she wants. I actually read that Shibas are on the quiet side so when I read this that they are prone to barking I was surprised.

I have had 4 Shibas and none of them barked. They will stare a lot and are curious but do not bark.

I absolutely love Shiba Inus, but I have never owned a dog of my own before. I've heard that they can be hard to care for since they're willful and independent, and can be hard to train, especially for first-time owners who don't know what they are doing. Anybody have any advice on Shiba Inu ownership, or suggestions of another loyal, fluffy, loving but energetic dog with major cuteness that I should look into?

The Shiba Inu is not for the first time dog owner. However, with the right understanding of the breed, getting a puppy from a good breeder and making sure to do LOTS of socialization and training with a professional trainer, you could get a puppy. But yes, the Shiba Inu is known to be more cat-like as it is a willful and independent breed of dog, whom can be stubborn when training and they seem to have a ton of personality packed into such a small dog. I would suggest going to a few dog shows and meeting a couple of Shiba Inus and their breeders and talk about their dogs. Get some face-time with the breed itself before you make your choice.

I bought my first Shiba Inu this last September; after reading online ALL the tips, warnings and info about how difficult a Shiba can be. I have owned a Border Collie and a mutt in prior years. I'm a petite woman in my 60s, and honestly, my Shiba female has been the sweetest pup to train. She was crate trained the first day, very easily house broken- not one accident ever! But I'm retired and was able to put her out every 2 hrs. They are very clean dogs, smart and energetic. I've never had the indoors overactive energy issues people complain about since I have a large fenced yard and she is able to work off all that puppy energy. I tried a puppy training program when she was about 4 -5 months old, and I think I wasted my money. It stressed her out terribly, and the typical puppy nipping and puppy disobedience all went away on its own. I'm actually considering getting a 2nd Shiba Inu pup this summer so she has a playmate. Good luck.

Can Shiba Inus get along with cats? I have a cat so I was wondering.

The Shiba Inu can get along with cats as long as they are socialized with cats at a young age.

My Shiba Inu female loves my 6 year old cat- both are kept indoors. However, the cat does not like the pup!
