Hokkaido Ken at Kaiju Kennels / Mascot Contest!
  • We are pleased to announce that we will be adding Hokkaido Ken to our kennels to aid the HANA Project. Our first Hokkaido will arrive next spring after our April trip to Japan. We are now accepting puppy questionnaires to get on our list for future Hokkaido Ken litters. If you are already on our list for a Japanese Akita puppy, email us to let us know you’d also be interested in a Hokkaido.

    Full announcement here: http://www.kaijukennels.com/hokkaido-ken-kaiju-kennels/

    Also, we’re adding a fourth kaiju mascot in honor of adding Hokkaido Ken to our kennel and want YOU to design it!

    In the coming weeks I'll start some fundraising activities to raise money for the purchase and shipping of the Hokka girl. I'll post about 'em here once we get past the holidays.

    I am so excited to hear that you're adding a Hokkaido! And this contest seems fun. I might try my hand at it (good thing this isn't just based on art talent, since I have minimal art skills).

    Awesome. Congrats. I'm amazed that her kennel was willing to give her up. Is she the only sesame outside of Japan?

    I was in Hokkaido last week, but sadly didn't see any dogs. I'm a bit partial to sesame dogs because of Ajax. People in town keep mistaking him for a Hokkaido. I might try my luck at the contest. I promise to draw a sesame Hokkaido and not secretly a sesame Shikoku.

    In Europe there are born couple sesames. Don't know are they alive anymore.

    I wish you luck in hokkaido breeding! :)
