We don't have any plans on Samoyed breeding.
Before thinking of  getting a Shikoku puppy you really need to think hard about all the effort and time you will have to put in it. This is not an easy breed, they need a lot of socialisation, a firm and clear hand and always positive training.

This is a breed that can go very wrong if it doesn't get what they need.
But if you put this extra work in the puppy you'll get a friend for life.

Shikoku chooses you and not the other way around. 

Characteristics of the Shikoku

The ancient Shikoku breed is what is known as a primitive breed, which means they retain more wild characteristics than other domesticated dogs that have grown accustomed to living with humans over the centuries. Because of their nature, your Shikoku's temperament around others will vary considerably depending on socialization during puppyhood.
They are calm, reserved, and loyal to their owners.


The Shikoku is a hunting dog with lots of energy to burn. Owners must commit to providing abundant daily exercise and mental stimulation; this breed is especially well-suited to sole owners who spend much of their time outdoors.
Try long walks, hiking and exploring, and tossing a toy or ball but always keep your Shikoku on a leash or in a safely
enclosed place like your backyard. Bred to hunt for centuries, the Shikoku simply cannot be trusted off-leash

as it may go after dogs, cats, squirrel, or other animals, paying no heed to its owner's pleas to stop.


The Shikoku’s short double coat is wash and wear, meaning it requires no trimming. The outercoat is coarse and the undercoat is soft and dense, providing warmth in winter. Every year in the spring, the Shikoku "blows coat," a term used to describe the seasonal shedding of the undercoat. During this time, the Shikoku sheds heavily. Daily brushing with a de-shedding tool can hasten the process. Outside of this time, the Shikoku’s coat sheds moderately and needs only routine brushing a few times a week. The coat is naturally clean and has no doggie odor. Trim you dogs nails every two weeks and check the ears periodically to ensure they don’t look red or inflamed. If the ears are dirty, clean them using a pet-safe ear cleaner with cotton balls or gauze squares.


Although the Shikoku is intelligent and fairly obedient toward its owner, the breed is still primitive. It is somewhat willful and independent, so training can be a challenge. Train daily using positive techniques and reward, and always be a fair and consistent leader.

The Shikoku has a high prey drive (the instinct to chase and kill small animals) and can be territorail or aggressive towards dogs and other animals. However, if raised together, the Shikoku may be able to live peacefully with another family pet. These dogs are reserved and aloof with strangers. So early and frequent socialization in puppyhood is vital to curb overprotectiveness.

Puppies is planned late 2023 early 2024
