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.

** Shiba Inu Update September 2016 **

If you are looking for a Shiba Inu to show - please feel free to contact us as we choose show potential pups first.


For those seeking a pet/companion puppy - our apologies but we are closing our current waiting list.

We have a lot of people already waiting and with the  time-frame extending into multiple years - it is no longer feasible to keep adding to the list.


We will re-open the list once we have worked through those that have already registered interest and note that if an older pup or dog comes up, it will always be advertised on the FB page


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!
