Training Pads
When you are housebreaking your puppy and he must spend longer than usually by himself sometimes it's helpful to put down puppy pads so they at least have a place to relieve themselves.  We find Costco has the most reasonable deal on high-quality puppy training pads. They are also useful if your pet is sick.  We use them in a crate when we take long trips with a caresick puppy or cat.

How Much Does it cost to raise a Dog?
This site has the cost of purchase, upkeep, medical bills, etc.  Pretty scary really but everyone has to know realistically what they are getting into when owning a pet.

We've been told it was about time we gave our web site a new updated look so we hope you like it and please report any link, spelling or other mistakes you find.  Hopefully this new resource page will provide you with some thought provoking doggie information.

Some of the things I feel are really important is permenant ID for pets like microchips.  The other thing is safely crating your dog in the car. I will be writing some articles on these things and posting them on my blog.  Another thing I am passionate about is Pet Owner's Rights.  The Animal Rightists will have your rights to own a cat, dog, horse, hamster, reptile, rabbit or any other companion animal taken right away from you if they have their way.  PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF ON THIS IMPORTANT TOPIC.
I really enjoyed this new article brought to my attention from a young lady I just met.  It is about the danger about smoking around  your pets: Smoking and Animals

Here is one about Vaping Around Pets.  For more information on how to care for your lungs please visit :
The American Lung Association

KAWAKO does NOT recommend any of the "puppy financing" agencies advertized on the internet.  Instead we recommend using PayPal Credit. Offering 0% for 6 months on purchases over $99 We accept PayPal with an additional 8.4% charge for tax.

We recommend applying for a CareCredit Card through Synchrony Bank.  Participating Veterinarians will accept CareCredit for bills over $200 and CareCredit offers special 0% interest rates for 6, 12,& 18 months.  The card can also be used for your own health care, dental or even plastic surgery! I must admit I have this card and I use it for the vet all the time.

It is a personal choice whether or not to purchase pet insurance for your pets.  We feel it would be just as good to have a pet savings account at your bank for emergencies or even for regular vet maintenance like teeth cleaning, etc.(KAWAKO does NOT allow their puppy buyers to use The Hanna Society for pet insurance.)

KAWAKO puppies registered with AKC are eligible for 30 days of coverage through AKC Pet Insurance.  All you have to do is activated the policy after you get your puppy home. There is no obligation and no credit card number required to enroll.

KAWAKO also offers one month of free pet insurance through Trupanion Pet Insurance.  An activation lettter is included in the information on the flash drive you recieve with the purchase of your Kawako Shiba.

Puppy Culture is the only puppy training program
Kawako Shiba Inu recommends to their puppy buyers. 
Financing for pets is something that came to my attention while studying puppy mill sites and I thought, hey, why shouldn't we good, responsible breeders offer that same opportunity to folks so they can buy a QUALITY PUPPY from a REAL BREEDER  
Kawako Shiba Inu has no affiliation with these companies so we cannot recommend one over the other but the information is presented for your consideration. 
Everyone with pets should absolutely provide for them in their will or trust.  Check out this site:
