    Shiba Inu and a Golden

    Hi!

    I have read a lot about Shibas and came to a conclusion that I really want a Shiba puppy. But that's when a question arises..

    Probably, I will move in with my boyfriend sometime soon. He loves dogs, he knows how to train them, although his experience is limited to a couple of Golden Retrievers. In fact, he has one now. Nice and friendly dog, super well trained, he is 5, he is castrated and he is generally not interested in other dogs. Nor people. He loves food and his balls/sticks. If a dog tries to take it, he's not happy. He's incredibly fond of me as well and always needs attention and pets (he gets jealous if we pet cats and asks for the same).

    I read that Shibas are not very good with other dogs. Would this be an issue for us, especially if my Shiba will not interact with the dog till we actually move in together?

    Thank you!

    Like people, dogs are individuals, and you can't forecast how they are going to react to each other. I would be inclined to leave getting a puppy Shiba until you move in together, as it is easier to introduce a puppy to an adult, than two independent adult dogs. Otherwise, make sure that they spend lots of time together while you are still living in separate houses.

    hey,

    I’ve learnt that shiba Inus are all different; I own two shiba Inus and let me tell you they are not alike at all; one is very stubborn, independent, hates other dogs, and the other is very chill, super friendly with other dogs. I love shibas, both of my dogs are great with my toddler and they are very patient with her as well, I can not ask for better dogs. ;)
