Have you been admiring the Shikoku hoping to add one to your family someday? And are you now ready to embark on the new and exciting journey of being a Shikoku puppy parent?
To help you on your quest to get the Shikoku puppy of your dreams, we have researched well-established breeders that breed Shikoku puppies.
DISCLAIMER: None of these breeders paid us to list them. Also, do your own research before picking a breeder.
Also we have included the price that each breeder charges for his or her puppy, if the price information is available.
However, do not shun a breeder just because the breeder sells Shikoku puppies for a higher price. Some breeders charge higher prices for their puppies simply because they invest more money to raise the best Shikoku puppies.

Please, when buying a puppy, make sure you do your due diligence to avoid buying a puppy from a puppy mill. Puppy mills breed puppies in large numbers in bad living conditions for the puppies. Puppy mill owners do not care about the puppies. They only care about making money selling puppies.
Genuine breeders care more about making healthy puppies than making money. When looking for a breeder, choose a well-established breeder that has been breeding puppies for a long time. Breeders that have been breeding puppies for a long time are more trustworthy. These breeders breed puppies for the love of dogs, and not to make money.
Also, never buy a Shikoku puppy without visiting the kennel where the Shikoku puppy was raised to make sure the puppy was raised in a healthy environment. And never buy a puppy from a breeder that won`t let you meet one or both of the puppy`s parents (at least, see the puppy`s mom). The aforementioned are some of the ways you could avoid buying a puppy from a puppy mill.
If you cannot find a reputable Shikoku breeder in your US state, you can pick a breeder in another state that is close to you. Most breeders know how to safely ship puppies across state lines, provided that you and the breeder are willing to work together on the shipping terms and conditions.

Conclusion on Shikoku Breeders
The Shikoku is a great dog breed to own. However, when looking for a puppy from a breeder, we recommend that you do your due diligence. Do not just jump into buying a puppy from a breeder. Take your time to research the breeder.
One good way to research a puppy is to go on a breeder`s social media page or Facebook group (most reputable breeders have social media pages for their Shikoku breeding business), and see how their puppies are doing with their current owners. You can even connect with other owners on social media to learn about their experience with the breeder`s puppy. Ask about the puppy`s temperament and health.
Also, when buying a puppy from a breeder, make sure you ask the breeder to provide you with a health warranty for the puppy and make sure that the breeder has screened the puppy or the puppy`s parents for genetic health defects.
We wish you the best of luck as you are about to embark on the beautiful journey of owning a Shikoku!
