Welcome to Boomlay Shiba Inu.

Boomlay is officially closed. We will not be producing any more litters/puppies.

Boomlay is a up-and-coming Shiba Inu kennel located in Tampa, Florida, specializing in versatile AKC and NIPPO registered Shiba Inu. I focus on temperament, structure, and type – in that order. I strive to produce mentally sound Shiba with balanced structure and a good work ethic. I not only show my dogs in conformation but I also participate in performance events with my dogs including Barn Hunt, Fast CAT/CAT, AKC’s Trick Dog, AKC’s Canine Good Citizen, Rally as well as training for agility.

Our goal is to preserve & promote the Shiba Inu as the breeders in Japan intended the Shiba to be.
Our dogs are raised with other animals including other dogs, cats, rabbits & birds (budgies, pigeons, ducks). Socialization and good genetics is key. The dogs travel to wherever dogs are allowed, making them more well rounded and less likely to develop fears or phobias.


Our Shiba are health tested before breeding – eyes, hips, & patellas are OFA certified.





Puppy Culture

Pet puppies are sold on spay/neuter contracts & limited registration.
Show puppies are sold on individual basis.

Awards 2021
Ribbons are nice but these awards are irreplaceable. It’s an amazing honor to have dogs qualify for and receive awards from the National Shiba Club of America. It was also an amazing honor and opportunity to be able to show a Shiba at the NIPPO Grand National and place. I was humbled beyond belief when my friend let me keep the awards.
