Mosura is due in season soon and we are excited about her Halloween litter with King Ghidora! We have not yet selected the father of Angirasu's or Godzuki's litters, but they will be red and brindle respectively.
July is a major month for birthdays around here! Happy Birthday to Mosura, who turned 4 on July 8th; our American Akita, Gryphon, who turned 8 on July 17th; and momma Bijo, who also turned 8 on July 30th! The girls celebrated with bully sticks and extra treats.
ATTS Temperament Testing
Mosura and Bijo were temperament tested by ATTS at the end of July. We had a bit of bad luck; Bijo came into season a few days earlier and Mosura injured her paw bad enough to limp just minutes before her turn. Despite these stressful conditions, both girls passed the test with ease! They now get to add "TT" to the end of their registered names.
The ATTS test focuses on and measures different aspects of temperament such as stability, shyness, aggressiveness, and friendliness as well as the dog's instinct for protectiveness towards its handler and/or self-preservation in the face of a threat. The test is designed for the betterment of all breeds of dogs and takes into consideration each breed's inherent tendencies.

Annual Health Clearances
We took all five of our current breeding dogs to get their OFA eyes done last month. They all passed, although Gamera and Godzuki have persistent pupillary membranes from iris to iris. There are no symptoms associated with PPM so their eye clearances will state as "breeder option."
New Grand Champions:
|On July 19th, the one year anniversary weekend of Bijo completing her Championship, Bijo and Mosura both finished their Grand Championships! Mosura is now officially known as GRCH HANAE GO SAWADAKA KENSHA TT and Bijo is GRCH BIJOZAKURA GO AKITA SHIBATA TT. Mosura is the second female Grand Champion and Bijo is the very first red.|
|Kaiju Kennels now has titled the first five Grand Champion Japanese Akitas in the US. Additionally, our Litter B is now the first and only Japanese Akita litter with Grand Champion sire and dam. The quest was long and hard, encompassing a total of 39 shows. Thank you to all of the judges who evaluated our dogs and the clubs that put on shows so that we could attend.|

Action Dog Sports put on a fantastic Barn Hunt event for 10 full days called Rat-Tastic Con. The event included three full-day seminars, introduction to rats, practice runs, and fun games for the dogs to build drive and confidence.
After all of the seminars, lessons, and games we entered Mosura and Godzuki in their first official trials. Both girls passed their Instinct test, earning the title RATI! We're looking forward to more events and working on the girls' Novice legs.
Visit our website to see more photos from the event.
With the completion of Mosura and Bijo's Grand Championships, we are taking a break from conformation events until 2017. We plan to focus more on Nose Work, Barn Hunt, Lure Coursing, or whatever other performance events our dogs enjoy in the meantime. Hope to see you at the trials!
