Shibas are amazing dogs, but you need to know that these are not perfect by any means.
If you’re planning to get a Shiba Inu, I recommend to continue reading this article so you’ll know what your getting into.
Shibas Should Never Be Off Lead
Every Shiba Inu owner knows that these dogs should never be off lead. The AKC states that no amount of obedience training will ever change that.
Although some of us are used to dogs running away from them like myself, others may want a dog that are more reliable when they’re off lead.
Shiba Inus Shed A Lot
Shibas shed — a lot. Although it’s said that Shiba Inus shed twice a year, Shiba owners gibe that they shed all the time.
Shibas blow (shed) their undercoat twice a year. During this time, they will shed handfuls of dog hair at a time.
Shibas Have A High Prey Drive
Although some may find this as a reason to get a Shiba, others will find it a reason to avoid Shiba Inus.
You see, Shibas have a high prey drive, so they will chase after every squirrel and mouse they see.
Shiba Inus Scream
Shibas scream! Not only can this be annoying to you as their owner, but it might alarm others nearby who hear their scream.
They might start thinking that your hurting your Shiba, while your really not. So, this is another reason why you shouldn’t get a Shiba Inu.
Shiba Inus Are Cunning
Shibas are notorious for being cunning. They will get what they want!
So, just be careful when you are around a Shiba Inu. Don’t give in to their trickery!
Shibas are great dogs. They’re a great dog for those who want a friendly, medium-sized dog. But you need to know their cons as well!
