Comment on Shiba Inu Personality –Good, Bad, & Quirky by Tilly https://shibashake.com/dog/shiba-inu-personality-good-bad-traits/comment-page-8#comment-840772 Thu, 29 Nov 2018 15:54:39 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/?page_id=431#comment-840772 Hi. We have a black and cream Shiba that is just beautiful and we love him out of our minds. We adopted him from a wonderful lady that was going to a retirement facility and could not keep this angel. I know that sounds strange being a Shiba, but he is just great. We have two homes and he is happy in both places. No fenced yard but gets walked at least 3 times a day. He will be six next month and he plays and runs, but does not like most other dogs. We have a trainer we are working with but have not accomplished that. At a play park he was playing with a dog and I gave the other dog a treat and Niko also but then he went crazy He has had an ear infection for at least 2 months, even more and lots of money later still has it. He won’t let me put meds in and runs when he sees me coming. Any advise. Sorry about my rambling.

Comment on Why Are Shiba Inus One of the Most Difficult Breeds to Train by G. A. Peters https://shibashake.com/dog/why-are-shiba-inus-one-of-the-most-difficult-breeds-to-train#comment-840380 Tue, 27 Nov 2018 01:55:08 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/?p=6070#comment-840380 I have had six Shiba Inus and just recently had to put two down at the same time. Just a few weeks ago went and got two more and they are young puppies. All of my others were one year apart. Training is not difficult. it’s insanely fast and in all honesty it took me less than 5 minutes to train them anything that I have ever tried. What is difficult is to get them to do what you want them to do and when you want them to do it. If I had to explain these dogs to someone that knows nothing about them, it’s that they are not dogs and they are not cats. There’s something flukey in between the two. I will never get a different breed. The most important thing and I cannot stress this enough… Is to immediately start training them and with great affection and socialization. Not just with other dogs, but with other people. My first for Shiba were all a year apart in age and I didn’t realize, until I had two puppies at the same time… How much the older dogs tot and train them. It was, I believe even more important then my training them. Having these two pups at the same time? It’s a whole different ballgame and a whole hell of a lot more work. I have absolutely no issue with that, but it’s certainly a learning experience. I cannot express how much I enjoy this breed and how rewarding it is. They are one of the most loyal breeds that you could possibly have. They may not want to be up in your lap and for some reason they don’t really like to be around your face. But they always want to be right next to you and wherever you are. I believe that the most important, number one sing if you intend on getting involved with this breed, is that you invest the effort. Otherwise, you may very easily end up with an aggressive dog. It’s similar in the sense when people speak of pit bulls. They’re an incredibly awesome, loyal and loving breed as long as they’re trained and socialize properly. It’s like everything else in life. You get exactly what you put in and invest.

Comment on Resource Guarding – “Mine!”, Says the Shiba Inu by Steve https://shibashake.com/dog/resource-guarding-shiba-inu#comment-840362 Mon, 26 Nov 2018 23:17:38 +0000 http://shibashake.wordpress.com/?p=104#comment-840362 We have a 5 year old Shiba, our second one. He seems to have a resource guarding attitude but seems to have a few quirks with it that I’m curious if they are associated or a different behavior altogether. We have to feed him a special low fat diet due to some pancreatitis two years ago. We mix a bit of dry and wet food and overall he eats it fine but every meal he has to tip most of the food out of his bowl and push it around on the floor. He will also regularly carry pieces of food to the living room and drop them and leave them. Or he will sit and stare at it for hours like it’s going to move. When one of us gets up he grabs it and runs off with it then returns and drops it once we sit back down. I know some of this is resource guarding but I don’t know what the rest of it is. What is the best way to break this behavior? Every time we pick up his food he whines like we are doing a bad thing but as we reassure him he is ok but will dump it again in short order…sometimes this behavior is amusing but mostly it’s just messy and annoying. Thanks for all the great articles.

Comment on How I Trained My Husky Puppy by Amanda https://shibashake.com/dog/how-i-trained-my-husky-puppy/comment-page-2#comment-840322 Mon, 26 Nov 2018 18:57:34 +0000 http://thedoginc.com/puppy-obedience-how-to-train-a-good-and-happy-puppy#comment-840322 What do you do with a husky puppy during night time? We have a 9 week old and we are working on crate training but he cries and howls all night in it and poops in his crate only at night. I don’t want to leave him to wander and destroy the house but also don’t want the crate to be traumatic.

They were sweet affectionate and polite and respectful in manner. They were not defiant to me, but did learn very quickly. They were great hunters and saw them calmly watch and jump straight up to snatch a bird out of the air. They were dogs my mom bought with the intent to resale but became very attached to me so when she sold them I cried. They never ever barked and when they saw me crying cried back to me. They escaped their new home to come back to me several times. My mother still would not let me keep them and sold them further away so they couldn’t find their way back. I’m shocked to learn that all shibas are not so sweet, affectionate and loyal as much as mine were. I miss them and was hoping it was the breed but must have just been those two sisters that loved me so much. Wish my mom would have let me keep them 🙁

We’ve both had stubborn, smart dogs in the past, but Shio definitely challenges us. We didn’t stress the bite inhibition enough when we first brought him home and he is definitely going for the kill shot when we try to put his harness on him now. Otherwise he is a sweet little clown, that loves to make us laugh. Thank you so much for this blog. It really has helped us a lot as we branch out into our first “primitive breed.”
