As the original owner & former publisher of Akita World Magazine in the USA, I do columns for this magazine and for Shibas USA magazine. Reports are published about the World Dog Show and various Akita, Greater Japanese Dogs (American Akita) and Shiba Inu specialties.
As a well known breeder of Shiba Inu in the United States, Ranchlake Shiba Inu may be found in various parts of Europe, Asia and South America.
Feel free to send me your pictures and stories of Akitas & Shibas in your part of the world.
Good luck at the dog shows. You never know where we'll turn up.
