They were primarily used to hunt for small birds and animals but later on became popular as companion dogs. Currently, it's the most famous dog breed in Japan, and has been growing in popularity in the US and around the world.

Shiba Inu is a fairly energetic breed that requires moderate to high level of exercise to stay healthy and stress-free. We recommend at least 50-75 minutes of regular exercise and mental stimulation to keep your canine happy and cheerful. It's also important to adjust the exercise duration to suit your dog. For instance, a puppy requires significantly lesser amount of exercise compared to an adult. They also enjoy a variety of activities, such as walking, fetching, digging, agility training, and others, especially small hunting games due to its hunting instinct. In summary, Shiba requires daily exercise to maintain their health, wellbeing and to keep them stress-free. Although they are small, they are fairly energetic and enjoy a variety of activities and benefit from a mix of physical and mental stimulation. But make sure not to over-exercise your dog as this breed can easily get injured and be sure to adjust the intensity based on its age and also because it's prone to hip injury.
The Shiba Inu is a fairly low maintenance dog that doesn't require a lot of grooming or bathing due to its thick, short double coat that keep it free from dust and debris. However, it may require extra grooming during the shedding season, which happens twice a year and could be more in hot-weathered countries like Singapore. Here are some grooming requirements and recommendations for Shiba:
Brushing: We recommend grooming your dog at least once a week to maintain the coat health and keep them moist. Due to the thick double coat nature of their fur, their coat can easily accumulate dust and debris
Bathing: Due to their thick double coat which is regularly clean, we recommend bathing your dog regularly, at least 1-2 times per week. Use a mild dog shampoo (we recommend Silky shampoo) and be sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid any skin irritation. Lastly, remember to blow dry to make sure the skin is completely dry to prevent skin issues.
Trimming: They also require occasional trimming or clipping, particularly around the pads and between the toes to prevent overgrowth and tangles and maintain a tidy appearance. Bring your kennel to a professional dog groomer every 3 months for a full grooming service to get the best result.
Nail Clipping: The frequency of nail clipping depends on the surface where your dog mostly walk on. Otherwise clip your dog's nails once every 6-8 weeks are enough. But whenever you do, be sure to use a sharp, proper nail clipper and avoid cutting too close to the quick. Leave the cutting to the Professional dog groomer to avoid traumatizing the puppy if nails bleed during cutting (which is very common).
Teeth Cleaning: Regular teeth cleaning is important for your dog to prevent dental problems. Brush their teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush and use a dog-specific toothpaste.
Ear Cleaning: Shiba's ears don't require a lot of cleaning as they are not flops. Over-cleaning can lead to ear infections. For cleaning, we recommend you clean them with a gentle, dog-specific ear cleaner to prevent buildup of dirt and bacteria in the long run.
Overall, a Shiba Inu is a fairly low maintenance breed that doesn't require a lot of grooming, bathing and cleaning to keep its furs, ears and body clean from dust and debris except during the shedding season.
