I do not publicly advertise my dogs as "at stud" as I am one of only 2 active Kishu Ken breeders in North America so there is not a large audience for my dogs to stand stud FOR.
However, I have had some interest in my dogs from overseas breeders, so I thought this would be worth mentioning.
I do not charge a stud fee for my dogs. If you are a breeder or owner of a compatible female dog, the all stud fees are "at cost" - this means if you can pay for all the machinations of artificial insemination or pay to get me & my dog to you, you will not be asked to pay A CENT MORE.

If you have any questions about this or the process, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Both Fionnuala and Reiko's litters are confirmed. We are currently anticipating 10 puppies between the 2 litters.
I am still accepting applications for sport, exhibition, and potential breeding homes who will are willing to become National Kishu Club members. If you are in the Pacific Northwest or within reasonable driving distance from the Portland metro area (Oregon), I am also considering companion homes for co-ownership.
Read more about my upcoming litters on the litter page.
Fionnuala (Akiyama no Roushya Kokuchou go) had a full weekend of dog shows.
This means I can now apply for her new title, IntCH!
RBIS IntCH Akiyama no Roushya Kokuchou go.
Fionnuala is the first dog of her breed to compete in the IABCA (which was a surprise to me, due to Kishu Ken-nel's early involvement in conformation) and so she is the first Kishu Ken to earn this title.
Thank you to our friend & photographer Gauzong Yang for the photos.
