Canadian Kennel Club Recognizes the Shikoku!

The Canadian Kennel Club has finally after some 16+ years of work been able to add the Shikoku to the list of fully recognized breeds.   Ministerial approval from Agriculture Canada was received late in October.

The major complicating factor with breed recognition in Canada is the Animal Pedigree Act; legislation that was enacted by the Canadian parliament in the late 1800’s intended to protect consumers.

“It’s been a long journey that at times appeared would never end,  it’s finally time to break out the champagne!” commented Katja Weber on getting the news.
