|The above fact has been proved by the bones of dogs discovered from the ancient ruins in various parts of Japan, and it clearly shows that Shiba Inus have been so much loved by people since the Jomon Period. @We can easily imagine Shiba Inus which, from ancient times until now, have run quickly in the fields and mountainous areas, have accompanied their owners with joy in hunting, have been good watchdogs as a member of the family, and have been loved and taken good care of by most people.|
| Jomon Shiba Inu is so named, because the cranial bones of dogs found in the ruins of the Jomon Period closely resemble those of dogs held by our Shiba Inu Research Center.
@At present, the Shiba Inus, which are sold by many breeders at pet-shops, are those Shiba Inus bred as toy dogs. On the other hand, the Shiba Inus kept at our Research Center have been fostered as a different breed from such Shiba Inus.
|We are the circle of people sharing the same interest with the following goals:
(1) We study how people and dogs should be through the life with Shiba Inus,and foster the Jomon Shiba Inus as "a species".
(2) Through the life with dogs, we think about our life and the natural environment to make them pleasant and good to live.
