Welcome to Mymsin Shibas 



Established 1987

I had the great honour to be asked to judge Japanese Shiba Inu at Crufts 2016.   I had an entry of 132 Shibas with very few absentees.   What a day!  To read more turn to my new page Crufts 2016.  I made my Best of Breed Miss M S Dunhill-Hall's Cro/Balt Ch.Vormund Leonardo Di Caprio who went on to Utility Group Two under Judge Mary Deats.   That was the icing on my cake.   What an achievement for this lovely dog.




About Myself & The Shiba Gang   

  My name is Mym Clews and I have bred, shown, judged and most of all, loved the Shiba since it came to this country in 1985.  My first home bred  litter was in 1989.  I try to breed to the Nippo standard and specialize in clear red which is, after all the most desired colour in Japan.

Sadly my husband and soulmate of 46 years passed away on 8th September 2009.   He had metastatic cancer of the colon.   He will be sadly missed by not only me but by friends throughout the world.   I just do not know how I could have coped without my Shibas who made me get up in the mornings and carry on with life.


I share my home with three Shibas and we live in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, England.   As I breed rarely the main purpose of this web will be to give help and advice wherever possible. 


I have been given the great honour of judging my breed at Crufts 2016. A once in a lifetime occasion.


You can find videos of my Shibas on You Tube by searching for Mym Clews.


Mymsin History is the story of my involvement with Shibas. 


Living With Shibas is where you will find help and advice on all aspects of owning and training them. 


West Wittering  is where we used to go for our holidays.  Unfortunately I have had to sell the caravan.

 Homeopathy is an ongoing thing and I will add to it when I have more information.

 Shibas & Friends is just what it says - photos of my shibas, their owners and their friends.    

 What If?  is the page where you tell me your problems and I try to sort them out to give help to others.

This website is a live thing and I will appreciate feedback and any useful info you may have to pass on.   


 I will try to give you some idea of the essence of the Shiba and in these pages you will find contacts with other Shiba owners, homeopathic tips and photos of my Shibas past and present and their friends. 
One of my hobbies was breed note correspondent to OUR DOGS  www.ourdogs.co.uk  .This is a very useful site for all dog lovers and well worth a visit.   There you will find archive info on show results, critiques and back copies of my notes.   Since I lost my Pete I have less time for showing and therefore felt I could not do justice to a weekly column so I have handed it on to Belinda Roskell who is a committee member of The Japanese Shiba Inu Club Of Great Britain.   The Secretary is Karen Jones (karen@almolka.co.uk ) 


I use Breeders Assistant by Tenset to keep a detailed Shiba Database.
My first Champion was Mymsin Amai (Amy).   Her highest award was Utility Group 2 at Windsor Championship show. We decided to retire Amy after she had done so much for us

As you can see from the obituaries In Memoriam, it is a bittersweet thing to let Shibas into your life.   They are not pets - they are companions.   I know it is hard but I feel they give us so much love and devotion the least we can do is to give them a dignified exit from this world.  I ask my vet to come home and I cuddle my Shiba for the last time.   They then cross the Rainbow Bridge knowing how much they are loved. 

A good site to go to for help is  www.petloss.com/rainbowbridge.htm
