About the SFNC
The Shiba Inu Fanciers of Northern California (SFNC) was formed in April of 1998, with 29 charter members. The club holds monthly meetings around the bay area and all members are encouraged to attend.
SFNC has sponsored and participated in many different activities. This includes hosting the annual Shiba Party picnic for over 20 years, an educational booth at the Cupertino Cherry Blossom Festival for over 10 years, and have provided public education at the Cow Palace benched show for over 10 years. We also have our own rescue fund within the club, and support Shiba rescue here in Northern California.
We are an AKC-licensed club that holds a Regional Specialty each year. See the Events page for more details on this year’s Specialty.
SFNC will be hosting it’s annual Shiba Party in the summer at Josef Hoog Park in Novato, CA. We invite everyone to attend that has a Shiba, would like to have one, or just loves the breed. We usually have over 100 people and their dogs that enjoy the food, fun contests and huge raffle. For further information on SFNC events go to our Events page.
The purpose of the Shiba Inu Fanciers of Northern California is to protect and advance the interests of the registered Shiba Inu. Our Code of Ethics is designed to establish a standard of conduct to be followed by all members of the Shiba Inu Fanciers of Northern California (aka SFNC), in order to promote the highest ideals among Shiba Inu owners and breeders, and aim for the continuous improvement of the breed within the framework of The National Shiba Club of America and The American Kennel Club approved breed standard.
