AKI MATED 31/01/2018
We would like to extend a huge thank you to Mym Clews (Mymsin) for allowing us breed Aki, we can not thank her enough for trusting us with her blood lines. In addition to this we wish to thank Chris and Mac Shutt (Tapena) as without their breeding advice, guidance & use of their dog at stud none of this would have been possible ... With such experienced people behind the root of our lines we hope to do the breed proud and are expecting our first litter to be born at the beginning of April.
A SAD DAY FOR NIZU 03/12/2017 RIP BURT
You came into my life one day, so beautiful and smart.
My dear and sweet companion, I loved you from the start.
And though I knew the time would come, when we would have to part.
You'll never be forgotten, you left paw prints on my heart.
Despite taking a back seat from showing this year to focus on study and an upcoming wedding in September, as always, we attended Crufts to support our friends and colleges.
Nippon inu DOG SHOW 27/05/2016
Mike hopped on a plane and popped over to The Netherlands to attend a dog show that had classes in all 6 of the Japanese breeds. Yet again a fantastic trip and a brilliant opportunity to gain further insight into the breed at an international level.
EURO DOG SHOW 19-20/11/2016
We hopped on the Eurostar and popped over to Brussels to visit and gain insight into the International Dog Show Scene. Both Aki and Burt made several friends (K9 & Human) and we further expanded our knowledge so all in all a fantastic weekend was had by all.

MIKES SHOW JUDGE TRAINING 19-21/08/2016
Following the Judges Competency Framework Guide to being a Dog Show Judge as set out by The Kennel Club, Mike has started working towards his level 1 qualification in judging. At Builth Wells Dog Show, one of the UK's largest dog shows, Mike successfully attended and passed the following three Kennel Club seminars
• Requirements of a dog show judge seminar
(Previously known as Rules & Regulations)
• The Kennel Club 50 Points of the Dog assessment
• The Kennel Club Conformation and Movement seminar
A special but unfortunate year this year as not only did we qualify for Crufts we were unable to enter but for a positive reason ... The Shiba Inu's this year were Judged in Hall 1 by Mym Clews (Mymsin) - Aki's Breeder. However as always we attended to support our friends and colleges.
