is to breed
companion dogs and breeding dogs who contribute to the bloodlines of the Kai Ken breed. We focus on temperament and the conformation standards of the Kai Ken Aigokai. We seek to educate the public about these wonderful dogs, communicate with other Kai Ken owners, and to sell puppies to approved homes on an occasional basis.
