I really want to give Yoshi a hug.

My dude was really nervous about getting his nails clipped, hated every minute of it. He still doesn't like it but he doesn't freak out like he used to, here's what I did.

I hated the guillitine clippers, the potential for bleeding, I tried at first and immediately became convinced that filing was the way to go. So I bought high grit sandpaper, that didn't work either. Then I bought a little mini dremel like this one and it works perfectly. Just do it outside and I use a paper mask so I don't inhale nail dust.

Onto the squirming, it might help to have a friend at first but the trick with my guy was treats. Peanut butter may work well because it takes them a while to swallow so their attention will be had for longer, but I used to feed him cut up slim jim pieces during training so I used those. I take a pair of scissors and cut a long slim jim up in to tiny little pieces. Then give him a few to calm him down and take his mind off what he thinks (knows) is about to happen. Then turn on the dremel, let it run for a bit so he gets used to the noise, keep giving him treats and telling him he's doing great. Stay relaxed, if you are worried or tensed up he will be too, so you just have to remain as calm as you can. Remember dogs can be trained to sense seizures in humans, never underestimate how well your dog can sense whether you're tense or not. Then begin to file down his nails, the dremel files them down super fast but make sure to not hold it up against his nails for more than a few seconds at a time because it will create heat, not a lot but it's always nice to be on the safe side. The dremel is really gentle, I hit my skin with it on accident from time to time and it doesn't hurt.

Give him a treat anytime he starts to squirm, but more importantly try to give him a treat the minute he relaxes and is behaving the way you want. The ultimate goal is to help him understand grooming time is a time when he gets lots of delicious treats!

Hopefully that helps!

Here are my favorite positive training book

The Other end of the Leash: this one is a really fantastic book on understanding dogs, dog behavior, interacting with them, building a relationship with respect versus dominance. Anything by Patricia B. McConnell is going to be solid advice and techniques.

101 Dog Tricks - just gives a really good guidelines on luring your dog into tricks versus forcing them, plus a lot of good tricks that help with mental stimulation.

Play with Your Dog: Just another really good book on good training, playing, and positive relationship building.

Ahimsa Training manual: This is the training manual from one of the best training facilities in Seattle. There are really good positive trainers.

BAT Book: Behavior Adjustment Training by Grisha Stewart: This book was a life saver for me. Shibas are prone to being really reactive and sometimes have issues with aggression and predatory drift issues, and this book really digs deep into understanding your dog and helping them make the right choices and building them up for success. I personally don't think you need to have an aggressive/reactive dog to get a lot of good info from this book.

Anything by Cesar Milan will NOT be positive training methods. He very much does not follow that philosophy. Positive training techniques do not use force, aversion, do not believe in alpha dominance theory, no physical punishment. It is a give and take type of relationship. Cesar Milan style tends to not do well with primitive breeds especially the Japanese dog breeds.

Double on this post. We are planning on getting a Shiba Inu and without even having one, I could immediately point out the things that go wrong. My parents always had a dog so I'm familiar with basic training, but mostly me and my boyfriend just read about the breed and the training.

It's super important to know what you get into when buying a dog. Shibas are smart and will try to dominate you and respond VERY bad to aversive training techniques (eg the newspaper, crate for pubishment)

Books on the breed are not expensive, I recommend this one for general info and this one for training

Also, check out this site for super good info on shiba training:

Please find a way to train him and don't bring him to a shelter. He's your dog and with training, your best and most loyal friend. Good luck! Let us know how it goes!

Looks like you have a good list going, remember to update your pups microchip with your address and get him/her a tag with your details.

We got a 36 inch crate and it's plenty big for our boy (he's around 30 pounds).

Puppia harness is a great starter harness, it's soft and doesn't have a bunch of metal jingling pieces which our puppy HATED on his harness our breeder gave us.

Kibble, check out dog food advisor for reviews and ratings of foods content, we were using grain free salmon and sweet potato from chicken soup for the soul, it's decently priced and well rated I can't find it anywhere atm so we're switching him back to their normal kibble.

Salmon Oil is a lifesaver in the winter, our pup gets terribly dry skin and extremely itchy without it.

Start out with a puppy kong, they sell kong fillers that are cheese and peanut butter flavored, our puppy was pretty picky at first and only ate the cheese one, didn't like frozen kongs either.

I'd start with a Basic Collar here's a Dog Tag Silencer and a Break-away collar for outdoors or dog park. A dog was choked unconscious at our park so I typically just keep our guys ID tags on his harness and don't use a collar, but if you do I definitely recommend a break-away if you are primarily using a harness with it.

Items we found useful: Bed Liner, Crate Fence, Kong, Stainless Steel Bowls (highly reccomend US made do not buy any made in China for health reasons), Zippy Paws Hide and Seek toys, Potty/accident cleaner, Potty Bells, Anti-chew Bitter Apple spray, 50 ft Leash, Retractable Leash, Soft stop Leash extender, Car Seat Belt, Car Booster Seat, Gentle Shampoo, Comb, Travel Water Bottle, Flirt Pole, Special Treats, Chew Stick, Greenies

Sorry for the HUGE list lol, feel free to ask any questions!

Shibas play differently than other dogs. The best way we kept our girl interested in playtime with a ball was to get a cat toy - had a stuffed bird inside and made noise when it rolled. She loved it and it spurred her prey drive. We also got a dog-hearty flirt pole and it’s still her favorite toy.

For the biting - he’s probably never been taught how to mouth rather than bite down and doesn’t realize what he’s doing. The trainer should be able to help with that.

u/bbcabbageface · 1 pointr/shiba

Hiya! I’ve only had my shiba for a year now and he just started shedding a couple months back so maybe I’m not at the worst of it yet, but I think I have a pretty good routine going so far! So we have two types of brushes we use regularly, the first brush being a slicker brush, like this that we use every couple days. The second brush, this bad boy that is really effective, but we can only use once a week or else it would damage your shibas skin and nobody wants that. It’s really just a matter of brushing (using proper techniques in order to not hurt your pup!) regularly to tame the fur. It never really has an end to be honest, but we can always try!

Have you taught leave it and drop it? Both good things to work on. Coarse start with low value items. Worked well with my boxer she has even dropped a deer bone a coyote left in the field. Which before she'd get all upset.

Resource guarding is natural behavior some dogs do it more than others. It can be with space, toys, and commonly food especially high value food.

Whats more awesome than steak.. Saya my shiba loves meat.. she is raw fed so she could tell ya it's yummy. She does not resource guard, but my boxer does. I've worked on her leave it, drop it and on trading for it. She has improved over time.

This book covers resource guarding I'd recommend checking the book out.

Ruffwear Front Range Harness
It’s a Ruffwear Front Range Harness (Small) - $39. No handle on it, but because these guys are not large, not really necessary, as you can easily just grab the harness itself if you need to. Very easy to put on and off as you just slide it over the head and then snap/clip around the body - if it takes more than 4-5 seconds to put on you’re taking your time.

u/DumbShoes · 2 pointsr/shiba


It's interactive, and it's fantastic. I put Yumi's daily serve of dry food in it, and she is far more interested in it than she is when it's in a bowl.

I second toys, toys and more toys. I actually tend to buy her Ikea toys cause they're cheap so I can replace them when she destroys them (toys will be destroyed), they're made for babies so there's nothing she can rip off and swallow, and some even have squeaky things which she loves.

Give them more toys than you can poke a stick at. Thus far, they have saved my furniture and house from destruction. Well, except for the computer chair. For some reason she's obsessed with the wheels.

u/mangosago · 1 pointr/shiba

Could you link the KONG toys w/ the velcro? I am able to locate the replacement squeakers searching on Google but not the toys themselves....this would potentially save me so much money!

Edit: Nvm, I think this is one?

u/coffeined · 2 pointsr/shiba

I have a slicker brush that retracts. Picks up a lot of hair and is easy to clean.
Looks like this one:

My Shiba looooooves getting petdowns when I wear deshedding gloves like these

I also have amazon’s knockoff of the furminator, but I’ve used it more on my carpet to get out fur the my old vacuum couldn’t pull than I have on my Shiba.

u/obastables · 4 pointsr/shiba

I know the dogs are both older but it wouldn’t hurt to take them to a basic training class that uses positive reinforcement. I would maybe suggest that you take your wife’s dog and she take yours. The idea isn’t to train the dogs so much as it is to condition them to listen better, which it sounds like your wife’s dog needs, but it will help both of you learn how to handle the dogs better and improve their bonds with the person doing the training.

It’ll also give them something to do together that’s positive & that’s really the goal. Right now they have negative interactions with negative consequences. This needs to shift to positive interactions with positive consequences.

Punishment when something bad happens is hard for dogs to understand. They don’t know that the bite was wrong or the growl was wrong or the way they looked at something was wrong and so it becomes hard to remove a bad behaviour because instead of stopping an aggression they just hide or adjust how it’s displayed. This is dangerous, because you may think they’re ok when in truth they’re just showing the aggression differently.

Positive reinforcement doesn’t teach dogs to hide their reactions. Instead you reward the actions you want to see and build positive connections between action / your reaction. It takes time, especially after an attack, but with the right training and tools I think you’ll get there.

I’d also recommend seeking a registered behaviourist if it’s within your budget, and recommend the following books:

Behavior Adjustment Training 2.0

I would also recommend getting so she doesn't chew away at the carpet or your furniture or anything else you don't want her to chew.

u/The-Riskiest-Biscuit · 1 pointr/shiba

Find “The Art of Raising a Puppy” by the monks of New Skete. They train German Shepherds for the most part, I believe, but their advice and knowledge is applicable to most breeds.

u/Fizzbit · 2 pointsr/shiba

I put Vector in his walking harness and keep him in place with a "Doggy Seatbelt" like this one -

Plugs into your seatbelt connector, and leashes onto your dog so that they're tethered.

If you get this, PLEASE ONLY USE IT WITH A HARNESS. Obviously you don't want your pup being thrown about the car by his neck collar if you get in an accident!

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/shiba

I use this and this to keep Hokkaido occupied in the mornings - it's how I feed him his breakfast. He's got the bottle figured out (bottle in paws, lay on back, prop rope on floor, dump bottle), but the second one he can't do much with other than use it as designed.

To keep him from waking you up, you'll either have to crate him or out-stubborn him. The way he sees it, he just has to wake you enough times and he'll get what he wants. For him to stop, he'll have to consistently not get what he wants (you awake) from the undesired action. If possible, set up a routine or trigger that he can associate with you arising and paying attention to him. A very natural one is an alarm clock. If you set it as a routine, he will learn that the sound of the alarm means you will wake, perform some set of actions, then pay attention to him. Routine and redirection are your friend.

u/ihadtopickaname · 7 pointsr/shiba

I have one of these:

It doesn’t stop all the hair from getting all over the car, but it helps a TON! Plus it keeps my black leather seats away from claws and dirty paws. And my shiba can’t fall between the seats if I have to brake hard in traffic.
