We live in the Missouri Ozarks on a small farmed named Sunny Terrace. We have bred and trained dogs for 25 years and have bred shibas for the past 19 years. We have four children, and two grandchildren. Our raising dogs is very much a family effort and everyone has a part. Our daughters have had a big part in showing our dogs, and we have attended both ACA and APRI shows throughout the years.
My husband has been a Deputy Sheriff for 30 years. Since he has often been on call and worked odd hours I chose to stay home with our children. This has blessed me with much needed time to devote to raising our dogs and puppies here on our farm. I also spend many hours each year attending continuing education seminars and other educational events. The devotion and time we have spent on our dogs has paid off as shown by the quality and temperament of our shibas.
