** April 2017 - RE-REGISTRATION for the WAIT LIST **
Due to changes in emails and computers and the various ways that people contact us (too many ways), we have had a lot of difficulty in effectively managing the wait list for pups in recent years so could I ask that EVERYONE that has previously registered interest (or new enquiries) in a puppy or adult please take the time to re-register via our new Wait List page.

I realise it is inconvenient for those that have registered before but its the only way I can see to get the list back on track - my apologies again and again.

Thank you for your interest in our fabulous dogs - we appreciate how much you value them and we want to do the right thing by them and you - hence wanting to get our Wait List back into proper order.

Thank you - Lyne & Simon xo


Welcome to our site - we hope you enjoy your visit.

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.


2016 and Beyond

More details about our dogs and future breeding plans are contained in the breed specific pages.

Breeding & Exhibiting Shiba Inu

New Directions for Shiba Inu

2015 was a big year - we started the year with Buddy, Betty, Della and Rah.

March 2015 saw the arrival of our first Shiba Inu import - Oh-chan - Aust Ch Brightvalley Tono Go Queen Bless (JPN) from Japan.
In May 2015, Toky and Flame joined us and Teddy returned from Mick at Risingsuns.
Oh-chan and Buddy both had excellent results in the show ring during 2015 and both gained their Australian Championship titles along with a host of other group and in-show level wins.
During 2015 - Oh-chan sired 4 litters for us - and we have at least one pup from each of these litters in the show ring - in fact, there is at least 1 Australian Champion from each of the litters before the end of 2016.
2016 has been a fantastic year for our youngsters and as always - many thanks to all our team showing Kortmar dogs along with all our family and friends who are always there to offer support - its a team effort - thank you.
Look out 2017 - here we come!
