A Little About Us
We began in the 1960's with German Shepherd Dogs. We produced five AKC Champions, as well as achieving obedience and tracking titles, including a Schutzhund title.
We then added Akitas to our kennel and quickly became Hall of Fame Breeders. We bred and/or owned 14 ROM Akitas as well as owning and showing the top winning Akita of all time in the working group (before it was divided into the working and herding groups). We had the honor of owning the twice National Specialty Winner (from the Veterans Class at 10 and 11 years of age), First Am.Can.BDA Ch.Kenjiko Royal Tenji Rom-PX. We are breeders of the only Akita to win two Best In Shows in one day in Canada, as well as, bred and owned the first Am/Can.Ch. Akita to win an Am & Can. CD. We have also won many American and Canadian National Specialties.
Our experiences with Shiba Inu began in the early 1980's before they were a recognized AKC breed. We bred and owned the winner of the first Shiba National Club Specialty, a black and tan dog - NSCA Ch.Mokjusei Takeshi of Mokuseiso (AKA Sam). Ch.Frerose Black Eyed Susan was the First Shiba Inu in Canada to earn her Championship and was also the No.2 Shiba in Canada from the classes. We also bred and owned the first Male Canadian Champion Shiba Inu, Ch.Frerose Alfmeister, before AKC recognition. We bred the #1 American Bred Shiba for the first two years after AKC recognition. Ch.Frerose Tika Bear, 1993 - 1994 and we bred and owned the #1 Shiba from 1995-1999, Ch.Frerose Otomi, who is also the No.2 top winning shiba of all time. When Tomi retired, Ch.Frerose Big Oliver took over as No.1 from 2000-2003. Oliver earned his international Championship with 2 Group Ones and a Group Two. When Oliver retired, Ch.Frerose Good Will Hunter carried on in Frerose tradition by earning the title of No.1 Shiba Inu from 2004-2008 when he also retired. Hunter is the top winning Shiba Inu of all time. He finished his Canadian Championship with 5 group placements and No.3 Shiba for the year in Canada from the classes. We also imported the producer of three No.1 dogs - Otomi, Oliver and Rhondo as well as bred and owned their Dam, NSCA Ch.Frerose Punkin Pie, top producing bitch of all time. Both are Specialty Show winners. During our time in Shibas we have earned wins at Westminster K.C., the Eukanuba Invitational, as well as various Specialty Shows too numerous to name.
When breeding a litter of puppies, we not only focus on their ability to win in the show ring, we also put maximum care into producing physically and mentally sound dogs who will become loyal, affectionate pets in their forever homes. We don't believe it matters how much a dog wins if he isn't able to be a good pet because of physical or temperament shortcomings. Our ongoing goal is to produce the "perfect" dog......... he doesn't exist yet, but who knows what the future may bring? Please come and visit us at Frerose and learn more about our breed.
