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 - and not likely to be our last. :-)
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 at July 2017, we have 5 Aust Champion progeny and another two on their way - what an incredible sire he is!
2016 was 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.
2017 started with a BANG!
Firstly Jack (Aust Ch Kortmar Blackjack) took Best of Breed at Canberra Royal and then in May 2017, Jessica (Aust Ch Kortmar Jessica Rabbit) took Best of Breed / Runner up in Show at the Inaugural NSW Shiba & Akitas Club show with brother Jack taking the dog challenge and Runner up Best of Breed - and not to be outdone - Kortmar also took out the Sire & Progeny and Dam & Progeny along with Baby in Show and Junior in Show - what a day!
Along with those amazing wins, 2017 already has new Kortmar champions too and so many wins for so many of them - thanks again to all our incredible handlers and owners - you rock and this journey is only just beginning!
