We are Cheri Fellinger & Marcel Marckelbach and we have a small hobby breeding program in Washington State where we raise Shiba Inus for participation at championship dog shows. We consider all our Shibas our pets and appreciate each for his/her own unique personality. All of our beautiful OFA health certified Shibas have outstanding temperaments that bring us unmeasureable joy. It is our honor to offer happy, healthy, quality puppies raised in our home, house broken and crate trained to loving families as cherished pets. We want only the best homes for our lovely puppies so we carefully screen our inquiries. Puppies are sold by reservation only. Black & tan is our specialty. 35+ yrs. experience. References gladly. Please think of Kawako if you are looking for a Shiba Inu in the Pacific North West.
Great experience all the way through. Informative when inquiring on the compatibility of a shiba in our family. Wanted to ensure the happiness and safety of her puppies by meeting us and our dog which showed great consideration of the breed and her puppies in particular. Very knowledgeable on all aspects of shibas including their special temperament and peculiarities of their health. After we had decided to get a shiba from her she kept us informed as to the status of upcoming puppies. She has continued to be helpful with any questions or concerns that we have discovered since we brought our shiba home. Highly recommend her and her dogs. She cares deeply about the breed and especially the well being of the dogs that she breeds through out their entire life.
I worked with Cheri for a while before I decided I wanted to take home a puppy. When I was finally ready Cheri was amazing at teaching me everything I needed to know. Her dogs are beautiful and well cared for and all very happy pups! I was so thrilled to know I'd be getting a puppy from one of my favorites of her dogs. Ms. Bridget Jones and her daughter Fuyu are amazing and gorgeous and I hope my little girl Kumiho will grow up to be just as beautiful. She was born October 12, 2015 and is 5 months old now. Cheri is a great person and very easy to talk to and truly puts the animals first.
I've been emailing with Cheri for a couple of years now and she is the most knowledgeable and compassionate dog expert I know. It's very clear how much she cares for not only her dogs, but all animals' well being and how much effort she puts into making her pups go to great homes. Her shibas are absolutely stunning, but what you can't see from photos is how much they all adore Cheri and what selfless care she gives them in return. We have had our Kawako puppy for about 9 months now, and we love her to death. She came to us housebroken and used to being handled, she slept through the night in her crate, and she was socialized around cats and other dogs. She has a fantastic temperament and of course she gets tons of attention when we go on walks because she's so darn cute. I give out the name of Cheri's kennel on almost a daily basis, because everyone wants to know where I got Reese! I would return to her for another shiba in a heartbeat.
