Shiba Inu: nature and behavior of the cute Japanese dog

The Shiba Inu, like the Kishu, the Kai or Shikoku, is a typical Japanese dog breed. The nature of the Shiba Inu is temperamental, self-confident and lively, which is why it is not suitable for all dog owners. You can learn more about the nature and behavior of this great four-legged dog here.

The Shiba was declared a Japanese natural monument in 1937. No wonder that the handsome Asian is one of the most popular dog breeds in Japan, next to the Akita Inu. In this country, the rather small dog with a strong and well-proportioned body is not yet so well represented.

Nature of the Shiba Inu: Courageous, lively and self-confident

The nature of the Shiba Inu is very special. He is a very self-confident and spirited dog with a strong will of his own and a strong personality. The lines between independent and stubborn can easily become blurred, which may sometimes overwhelm one or two dog owners who are not consistent enough in their training. The right education for the Shiba is a consistent-loving – with harshness you usually do not get far with the occasionally rebellious four-legged friend. The Shiba also learns quickly and is very playful – so he can cut a fine figure as a family dog.

Behavior: Shiba needs to be challenged physically and mentally

The Shiba can have quite a dominant character. He does not think much of blind obedience, preferring to rely on his strong instincts and likes to go his own way. This does not mean that he is not affectionate. Quite the contrary, the Japanese loves his heart people above all else and always shows good watchdog qualities. He wants to play often and a lot and discover new things, which is why you should challenge him daily. Both physical and mental activity are also a must due to his strong hunting instinct and curiosity.

The Shiba Inu usually shows great motivation to cooperate, so you can make him happy by giving him tasks and playing dog games with him that best challenge both body and mind. In dog play as well as in solving tasks, the Shiba is a real bundle of energy. Depending on their character, most pelt-noses enjoy agility, search games, nose work and are happy to play with intelligence toys and learn dog tricks. If a Shiba is challenged in a manner appropriate to its species, it is – especially at home in the apartment – a very balanced and then also calm dog.
