It's 2016 when Irma Jansen-Melskens and Marjolein Peeters join hands in creating their Dutch book "The Shiba". Motivated by their love for and knowledge of the breed, they produce a beautiful book which sees the light at the end of 2017. The positive responses from the Dutch and Belgian Shiba community further motivated them to adapt the book for Shiba lovers all over the world, which resulted in an English adaptation of the book which was published in 2020.
Next to the obvious topics such as history, personality, nurture and care, they've also managed to write interesting chapters about the inheritance of coat colour, health, sports and body language. The book also contains a lot of information on raising a Shiba and finding the perfect companion. The book is written in an entertaining, yet highly explanatory way, which makes it very easy to read.
Breeders can purchase the book at a special rate for future puppy owners of their kennel. For more information, Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
