A forum dedicated to the preservation and education of the Nihon Ken (The Japanese Dog) breeds and standards. This site is owned and operated by fellow enthusiasts. Our hope is that this site will act as a 'launch pad' for enthusiasts and owners to connect with other enthusiasts and owners. The Nihon Ken Forum Group is a forum comprised of several categories and sections that focus on the six native Japanese breeds: Akita Inu, Hokkaido Inu, Kai Ken, Kishu Ken, Shiba Inu, and Shikoku Ken. We invite you to join our community and share your knowledge, interest and experiences with these amazing breeds.
