Kishu vs Shikoku vs Hokkaido

Hello everyone! My name is Kamiko and I recently became enamored with the Nihon Ken. My husband and I live in Mexico with our two dogs and our infant son. We don't have traditional jobs and are home a good bit, so training and socialization won't be an issue for us.

I'm trying to find out more about these breeds, and just based off of what I have been able to find on the internet (which I realize is likely incomplete in regards to a full picture of their temperaments and behavior), I am thinking these three breeds would be the best fit for our family. I would hope that within my lifetime we can own all three, but I would like to figure out which one to start off with first to get into the world of primitive breeds, and more specifically nihon ken.

Any info you guys can give would be awesome, especially if you can give comparisons within these three breeds. I've heard the Hokkaido is pretty handler soft compared to the other two, for example. I'm trying to be as educated as I can!

Thank you all for your time! ❤️
