Get to know the Kai Ken
All you need to know about the breed
Stunning, fearless, intelligent – all words that aptly describe the Kai Ken. ‘Cuddly’, not so much. But that doesn’t mean these aren’t deeply affectionate dogs. While not likely to curl up in your lap and snuggle, the Kai Ken will show attachment in their own way, whether that’s staying near you – rather than on you - as much as possible or not hesitating to shield you from danger. As guard dogs go, the Kai Ken is hard to outdo.
And while the breed’s independence can sometimes seem like stubbornness, the Kai Ken is generally eager to please those with whom they’ve formed a bond. As such, they can be a pleasure to train – particularly when given plenty of encouragement and motivation.
For all their bravery, energy, and strength, the Kai Ken is remarkably calm with children though, like any dog, they should be trained first. This and the fact that they happen to be quite clean make them great candidates for apartment living. Just be sure to give them the “you time” they so thrive on along with the exercise and mental stimulation needed to keep them healthy and content.
