Kortmar Open Days

Because we have a full and hectic schedule with work, dog shows, renovating Kortmar Manor and actually looking after our current home in Murrumbateman, it is not practical to have visits on an irregular basis - instead, we now have scheduled Open Days - which is your chance to come on out and meet the dogs and meet us.


  • As a potential shiba owner - you need to meet as many as  you can - we have so many different personalities in our own backyard so can only imagine how many other personalities there are with other breeders.
  • As the potential breeder of your new family member - you need to meet us and be sure that you are happy with the way we care and look after our dogs and that you consider us as people to be honest and trustworthy in our dealings with you.


Although it is not a pre-requisite to meet us, especially for those that are so far away, meeting you does help us form an opinion of you and your family when interacting with the dogs and as potential future members of the Kortmar family.


Note - if you are from interstate or more than 3-4 hours travel away, we will try to accommodate your visit outside of the scheduled times where we can, especially if you are in this area for work or other family reasons.


Saturday 20 January 2018
Sunday 21 January 2018 
$10 per Adult
Children 16 & under FREE



Session 1 - 10am -11.30am

Session 2 - 12 noon - 1.30pm

10 Adults (+ up to 5 kids) per session


If you have enough people that you are likely to take a whole time slot, please contact us so that we can set aside a full time slot for your party.



Please come suitably dressed - DRESS DOWN - fancy clothes and high heeled shoes are not going to make it comfortable to stand around while you undertake the tour or meet the dogs.


You can presume you WILL get little pawprints on you and likely fur as well!


Please do NOT bring your own dog/dogs & if you frequent dog parks, please wear a different pair of shoes when you visit.



We will add a link to the next sessions on Eventbrite once we work out the dates for March and April 2018.

Please arrive on time or a few minutes before the timeslot - we want to ensure that everyone gets the same information and the same opportunity to meet and interact with the dogs.


We do ask people to remember that we are inviting you into our home and our kennels and ask you to follow our direction with regards to using hand sanitiser and wipes before handling our dogs. 


We also remind you to follow direction when advised to approach a certain dog in a certain way - we do know our dogs and we want this to be a fabulous and enjoyable experience for you and them.


In coming to our Open Day, you are agreeing to have your pictures taken with the dogs and possibly posted to our social media sites - please let us know if you seriously object to that concept.
