After years of searching for the perfect dog breed to match our personalities we decided a Shiba Inu was perfect! I did a lot of research and came upon your website, I have read almost every article now and I was well aware of the challenges we may face with this type of breed, and we finally adopted out 15 month old Shiba named Remi! When we got him he already had basic training down solid! His favourite is “sit” and “give me your paw”. I have recently taught him to lay down as well. This is however, our first ever dog and we seem to be doing some things incorrectly, we have only had him for a week and a half but I am having a hard time determining when I have exercised him too much, he has started to get comfortable in his new home and has started to act out, I think I don’t give him enough mental stimulation so we are looking into some puzzle toys for him. Our house is quite big and we have no children (nor do we plan to) but last night he started getting overly excited after some big running around in circles outside and playing quite a long game of fetch in the house with me, his excitment got him into the mood to hump my husbands legs and he is VERY mouthy, we seem to not be getting through to him too much on that aspect. We have contacted a trainer for help but the next sessions are only starting in january (16th i Believe) so it would be very helpful to know how to determine what amount of exersice is too much for him. He seems to be a little anxious but brave when we are near by. He has also ended up chewing some of our door frames and the bottom step (although the bottom step was because he didn’t know how to get upstairs at first but 2 days of training and he runs up and down like the tasmanian devil daily). We have a 14 year old resident cat who has anxiety and he doesn’t seem to listen to me about not chasing him even when I try obedience commands like “sit”. I also think we may be rewarding him too often and only with treats, I only just started to get him to “sit” when he wants a door open, although I’m not sure what to do abhout him jumping up on the fragile glass sliding door when we have him in the large living area with us as the cat needs some time to regain confidence in his environment a little. (without the dog scaring and chasing him away). Any tips or advise on how to handle him until we get better training would be SO appreciated!!

Thank you
-Amanda

Comment on Enclosed Dog Parks – Good or Bad? by Tali https://shibashake.com/dog/enclosed-dog-parks-good-or-bad#comment-928714 Sun, 10 Oct 2021 14:19:13 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/enclosed-dog-parks-good-or-bad#comment-928714 The best use of a dog park is when you train your dog how to ignore other dogs and focus on you from OUTSIDE the fence. If you go in, you are only going to teach your dog how to fight with other dogs. Not worth it. There are so many ways to get exercise for your dog, and socialization, well a properly socialized dog doesn’t need to play with other dogs, but ignore them politely and focus on their handlers direction.

Comment on Pet Loss – Dealing with the Death of My Two Dogs by shibashake https://shibashake.com/dog/pet-loss-dealing-with-the-death-of-my-two-dogs#comment-928251 Fri, 10 Sep 2021 23:51:06 +0000 https://shibashake.com/dog/?p=13196#comment-928251 Thank you. We have been thinking of getting another Shiba. If you have pictures of yours, please send me a link. Would love to see him. Dogs are definitely wonderful rays of sunshine. That is a great way to describe them.

One thing that has helped me greatly is to talk about the dark night of my soul. We are not alone in our darkness.
