Thank you for your continued interest in Kortmar Shiba Inu.

Its edging towards half way through the year (end April 2020) and wow, what a start to the year we have all had! Prolonged drought, devastating bushfires, widespread flooding and now the COVID-19 Pandemic!

Obviously due to the pandemic & associated Government restrictions on travel and contact, we have been unable to have any of our fabulous visitors for our exclusive Shiba Stay & Play packages in recent months - in fact, while this is still swirling around, we have even closed  Kortmar Manor B&B to all guests to protect ourselves and our woofers. 

Once restrictions start to ease and small groups are again allowed, we might be able to get some more Stay & Play packages happening - both mid-week and weekend.

Normally May through to September are some of our busiest months in the show ring (obviously better weather to show in than Australian summers) but we think its likely to be quite a few more months before shows ramp up again so we will be much more available to run Stay & Play packages.

It was a hat trick!

Just  a bit PROUD! It was all due to Team Kortmar - thank you all!

 ALL enquiries for a puppy or adult please register via our Wait List page.

Please note - it is likely a MULTIPLE YEAR WAIT at best, for a puppy
and there are never any guarantees.


There may be a shorter wait for a potential show puppy should we consider we have one suitable - you will need to contact me direct in addition to putting your details on the Wait List if you are seeking a potential show pup.


Thank you for your interest in our fabulous dogs - we appreciate how much you value them and want to do the right thing by them and you by keeping you informed.

Thank you - Lyne & Simon xo


Kortmar Shiba Inu

Kortmar are active breeders and exhibitors of Shiba Inu and previously, the Alaskan Malamute (20+ years)


Follow us on Twitter & Instagram - @Kortmarshiba


Our history with Alaskan Malamutes goes back to 1991 with our first litter bred in 1993. We have bred and exhibited Best in Show winning dogs and in our earlier years, successfully raced the dogs in harness as well.


We commenced with the Shiba Inu in 2010 - we lost 3 dogs to Brown Snakes in 2012/13 so the last few years have been a process of rebuilding our team.


2019 and Beyond
