Full Description

Shibas tend to exhibit an independent nature and sometimes show aggression. This is more prevalent among female Shibas and is influenced by the breed’s strong prey drive. The Shiba Inu is best in a home without other small dogs or young children, but consistent obedience training and early socialization can make all the difference. The breed also interacts fairly well with cats.

The famous HATCHI was a Shiba- it’s a great film if you’ve not seen it!
