|Sarah - you're SO right about the kibble! And, just because they liked one small bag doesn't mean they will like it when you bring home a great big bag. In fact, I can virtually guarantee that they won't.
Henry is my first Shiba - I got him about 8 months ago from his first owner. He was about 1 1/2 years at the time. He's also my first indoor dog, but I grew up on a farm with working, outdoor dogs.
The main thing I learned quickly is that you have to have to have to convince the Shiba that YOU are in charge. If you don't, they will OWN you. And, it's not as easy as sh-sh-ing them like the Dog Whisperer. For Henry, I had to use control of his food (and mine) to convince him I'm the leader. Now he's a perfect angel. Riiiiight. Okay, so that's a big fat lie, but he's definitely better.
