The HANA Project

The HANA project involves Hokkaido owners working together to help grow the breed in North America. We have members world wide and seek to work together with new and current owners to import dogs, health test existing dogs, and conduct carefully planned breedings

The Hokkaido is a Japanese Spitz Breed

The Hokkaido is one of six native Japanese spitz breeds, similar to the Shiba Inu and the Akita Inu. The breed has just obtained AKC FSS inclusion, and puppies born here will be AKC-FSS and NIPPO registered.
