Shiba Inu Characteristics

The Shiba Inu was originally bred as a canine assistant in hunting birds and small game animals, along with the occasional wild boar. They’re the smallest of Japan's six native dog breeds, with the Akita Inu being the largest and the Kishu, Kai, Hokkaido, and Shikoku in the medium-sized group.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Willful

One of the smallest of the “Spitz” breeds, the Shiba Inu stands around 13-17 inches tall at the shoulder and weighs between 17-23 pounds.  These dogs come with a black, white, or sesame-colored coat. They typically live between 12-16 years and can make great companions or great hunting dogs. They have a known temperament and a bit of an ego, so training and proper socialization is important in order to show the Shiba Inu who’s the top dog.

 

Shibas are usually adaptable, active, good-natured, clean, and quiet. They can also be aloof, independent, master escape artists, and somewhat stubborn. Their size makes them an adequate apartment or condo companion, but they have plenty of energy, so daily walks and/or playtime is a must.

 

The Shiba tends to be possessive. The Shiba Inu protects what he considers to be his, including toys, food, or territory. Proper socialization and training help keep this trait in check, but it's wise to put away any of his favorite toys and treats when other dogs or children are around, so he's less likely to act out and fight over them.

 

Many enthusiasts consider owning a Shiba Inu a bigger lifestyle change than owning other dog breeds. They require careful training and attention must be paid to their unique personalities, but the reward is having a loyal and caring companion unlike any other dog.
