Our Team

The main “on the ground team” consists of myself (Mira Micin) and my husband (John DePalma). We both participate in feeding, training, showing, and caring for the dogs. Additionally, we  share the same passion for the preservation and continuation of the Japanese Akita.

Our mentor in all things Japanese Akita is Claire Matthews. Claire has been, and continues to be, a fount of information and a constant support. She entrusted us with two of her dogs and continues to offer her time and efforts in the development and continuation of our kennel. We appreciate her assistance as we look to import additional Japanese Akita to add to our lines. Her opinions and views closely match with our own and we count on her wisdom to lead us on the path of preserving and improving on this wonderful breed.
