I just googled and came up with.........

http://www.shibainucanada.com/

Good luck on the "reasonable price" and must be able to ship. They just don't go together. Personally I would not want to adopt any pure bred dog without visiting the breeders facilities and seeing both parents first.

Maybe you would consider lookin at www.petfinder.com and search for your breed? looks like there were quite a few when I checked?? they are a rescue though so perhaps thats not what your looking for? or maybe never considered?? maybe you will?? good luck!

I agree, 14+. With all the millers, who knows where a pup is really coming from . You can also try rescues and shelters in your surrounding area, shibagirl23. You won't find better fees.

Hello fellow newfie

1200 dollars is a GREAT price for a well bred pet.. ever heear the saying "you get what you pay for?" You have to understand that each 1200 dollar pup that they sell, there was 1200 dollars speant on THAT puppy and its parents.. They make very little to NO money on them.

My dog was 1300 dollars (Breeder in paradise).

If you buy from a reputable breeder elsewhere in canada, even if they sell their pups for 900 dollars (which you probably wont find a breeder asking for this little) You need to remember the cost of a crate and the cost of the airline shipping it! It will add up to the same price!

I think it would be better to go with the reputable breeder you have found here on the island and pay the bit pf money in gas to travel and get it

Hey!! Im new to the owning a dog thing lol so when i found out $1200 for a pup here, and somewhere else was $400, it makes me wonder why is there so much of a difference. but yes I agree 100% with you, if i dont find another breeder near by i will be going to her for a pup. There was another breeder closer for a better price, $800. but once i found out about it all the pups were spoken for and she said it was her last litter. So if any one knows of a breeder in NL let me know....because you never know. thanks everyone for the Info

regardless of the price you need alot of things to look for In a reputable breeder.. You want to go see the parents and pups and see what condition they are in.. if they are outside dogs. Dont buy them. Their is NO way they can be properly socialized if they are outside all the time.

The main thing you want to look for in a reputable breeder is health testing.
And someway they prove their dogs. Weather it be showing in Conformation.. Agility..sledding..Obediance etc. They need to be titled somehow.

Registration is a plus, but you have to look at the rest of the things because just because they have registered dogs, doesnt mean they are good breeders

You want to stay away from BYB's, petstores and puppymills because you do NOT want a dog with health or temperment issues. Because that 400 dollar dog might end up costing you thousands of dollars in vet bills or trainers or even a law suit if you get a VERY badly bred dog

Good luck

Shiba's are one tough dogs. Hope that all your research is done in regards to the breed and their requirements. As a first time dog owner - you are taking on a big challenge. Regardless, I am certain that you know that an animal is for life and you are prepared to this undertaking.

Best of luck to you and if you do infact go to a breeder - ask to see the parents. Also, take someone with you that knows the breed and how to select a pup that has the behaviour that suits your family. Do not venture to do this on your own if you have never owned a dog before.

As a 1st time Shiba mom for 4 years now, I'm still in awe of a Shiba's personality.

The Shiba's unique personality is worth every second of wonder and amazement.

Wikipeida describes them perfectly. Everything from the way
they study 'you'....and their 'Chewbaka' voice....to their
high self-esteem and air of royalty...they'll keep you
laughing and talking. Yes....it's happened to me...
I talk to my dog in every serious sense.

Good Luck in your search for a Shiba Inu. I would really
check the history. As for the price, our dog's father is
a Champion and we paid $800....of course that was 4
years ago.

http://www.shibainucanada.com/breeders_directory.htm

This site may be out of date but according to it, the Shiba Inu Canada breeders directory, there is NO Shiba Inu breeder in NFLD. There is one in NB. CKC membership is not a guarantee of a good breeder, but it sure is a better bet than a breeder who is not a member. It is illegal to sell as purebred any dog that is not registered with the CKC. In Canada.

Please check who you consider getting a purebred pup from very, very carefully. Shiba are not generally considered to be an easy breed to own. My girlfriend, experienced in dogs, found her's to be quite difficult to train. Mind you, her experience was with Goldens and Shelties, breeds who generally live to please, while Shibas are independant thinkers.

It is also imperative that they are well socialized from puppies as they are loyal to their guardians and very protective. Good luck and like the rest said make sure you are going to a reputable breeder and not a back yard breeder or puppy mill. Most of the time with a rescue you know what you are getting as they already know the temperment of the dog and how big it will get. Look into rescue, you might be surprised. We get puppies all the time.
