Thank you for your continued interest in Kortmar Shiba Inu.

Its June 2020 - wow, half way through the year we would all rather forget!

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. 

While Kortmar Manor B&B is still closed to guests, we are starting visitors for Shiba Stay & Play packages from 14 June 2020 - we are timing them so that you will have pups to play with as well as adults so still have some dates available 22-25 June - these are dates during the week as the weekends have already been booked.

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.


2019 and Beyond
