Thank you for your continued interest in Kortmar Shiba Inu.

Time is flying - its already February 2021 and I think we mostly just want to forget about 2020.

We are able to host our exclusive Shiba Stay & Play packages again (depending on your location & lockdown status) but please note, these are booked in around our existing commitments so if I have shows booked, they take priority. 

Kortmar Manor B&B has now been closed to guests except those coming for our Shiba Stay & Play packages.

Waitlist Update

We have closed our Waitlist for the forseeable future - so many folks have expressed an interest that the list has become difficult to manage. We are still happy to hear from folks interested in a Show Pup but are not taking any further bookings for pet/companion pups at this time. 

It was a hat trick!

Kortmar Shiba Inu is proudly the Number 1 Shiba Inu Breeder 2017 

Number 1 Shiba Inu Breeder 2018 


Number 1 Shiba Inu Breeder 2019 (all DOL Pointscore)

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

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.


2021 and onwards

Check the other pages on the site for lots more info about our dogs, pups and our Shiba Stay & Play experiences.

Breeding & Exhibiting Shiba Inu

Not a lot happened show ring wise in 2020 but it started off well for Ruby, Peaches and Allen - we are looking forward to some more ring time in 2021.
