Kai Ken is one of the six native dog breeds of Japan. This is a well-respected and loved animal across Japan and beyond.

As a highly intelligent breed, the Kai Ken will carefully choose to whom to attach. As such, they will pick one person and make them theirs.

Their special person is someone who they will protect no matter what and leave them behind. Originally, this breed was used as a versatile hunting dog.

Well known for his brindle coat, this dog can enable a natural camouflage perfectly aligned for this breed’s need of the mountainous terrain.

The Kai Ken is the perfect choice when it comes to working outside, or just going on a longer hike, or participating in dog sports, such as agility.
