Socializing Your Shiba Inu

It's always important to socialize your dog, whether it's a puppy or an older dog. They need the exposure to people, kids, other dogs, life, etc...

That being said, I always encourage newer members of the Toronto Shiba Inu Meetup group to start coming out to the Shiba events as soon as they can with their Shiba Inu. The Shibas get to hang out with their own kind, some are reunited with their littermates, and the owners get the chance to compare stories & concerns with other owners who are going through the same thing or have already been there done that.

The sooner you can enroll your Shiba Inu in puppy class or have it involved with other dogs, people, etc...the better. You can never do enough for your Shiba!

Some people, breeders, owners, etc...used to say that Shibas don't get along with their own kind. Well, I"m here to tell you that isn't always true. Our last Meetup event had 26 Shiba Inu attend - all different ages, colours and sizes. Everyone got along wonderfully. We do have fantastic owners who are very attentive to their Shibas.

The Toronto Shiba Inu Meetup group had a fantastic year and busy, too!!

I've put together a Year in Review Video - so many memories from just one year. Shibas rule!!
