Association of Nihon Ken [UK]

There is no official breed club for the Hokkaido Ken in the UK, as they are not recognised with the UK Kennel Club. The Association of Nihon Ken is a breed club that focuses on all 6 native Nihon Ken. They particular focus on the 4 medium sized breeds (Kai Ken, Shikoku Ken, Kihu Ken, and Hokkaido Ken). The ANK is a valuable source of information for these fabulous breeds, and also attend dog shows where they have a meet the breed stand!
