Castle in the Desert


The Shikoku that will excel in the show ring and out on the sand. Est. 2020 Sabaku-jō has focused on multi-titling our dogs through AKC, UKC, NASDA, IABCA, and NIPPO in conformation and performance sports such as Barn Hunt, Dock Diving, Joring, and more. The goal? To maintain the integrity of the Shikoku’s utilitarian background in a modern world and maintain the rare Black and Tan coat color.




Haiiro's first litter is here! On Our way back from Premier 2022 Juvia went into labor and surprised me with 5 beautiful puppies. They will be ready to go home in 8-9 weeks.


We did it! Through lots of travel, many practices, and a few set back, Haiiro made history with me. He became the first Shikoku in U.S. History to earn his Open Barn Hunt title. This required 3 clean runs, finding 4 rats, running though a a multi-corner tunnel, and climbing stacks of hay bails. We got two clear rounds in Vegas April of 2022, and finished out last clear run June 2022 in Michigan. Now let's conquer Senior!
