ToaToa is a small boutique showing and breeding kennel specializing in producing quality Japanese Spitz with exceptional temperaments.  We are located in the beautiful beach-side town of Orewa, on the North Island of New Zealand, just 30 minutes north of Auckland.

If you've been to a lot of websites about Japanese Spitz, we hope you will notice something different about ours:  We have our share of Show Wins, but we don't spend a lot of time bragging about our wins in the Show ring.   That's because 99% of our clients are looking for a pet, not a show dog. And we appreciate that.  Unfortunately, some winning show dogs have very poor temperaments.

That's why we breed for temperament first, and we tell you about our dogs' personalities. Yes, we also breed for soundness, type, coat and movement - all the things that make up a quality Japanese Spitz.

Why is summertime the ideal time to adopt a puppy?

  • Ample Time for Bonding: With longer daylight hours and potentially more flexible schedules, summer provides an excellent opportunity to build a strong bond with your new furry friend. Families often have more time off, allowing for seamless integration and ample time for training and forming a lifelong connection.

  • Outdoor Exploration: Summer opens doors to endless outdoor adventures! Whether it's a leisurely stroll in the park, a hike through scenic trails, or a day at the beach, your Japanese Spitz pup will relish these experiences. Summer weather encourages active lifestyles, and your puppy will eagerly join in the fun.

  • Optimal Training Conditions: Housebreaking and training are crucial for a young puppy's development. The warm weather allows for easier outdoor training sessions, making it more pleasant for both you and your pup. Plus, the abundance of natural light extends training hours and fosters better learning conditions.


  • Socialization Opportunities: Summertime means more people and pets out and about. This presents excellent opportunities for socialization, helping your Japanese Spitz puppy become well-adjusted and comfortable around different environments, people, and other animals.


  • Health and Well-being: The warm weather contributes to overall health and well-being. Your puppy will thrive in the summer sunshine, benefiting from vitamin D and enjoying the outdoor exercise that's essential for their growth and development.

"Mary's transparency made the buying process stress-free. It was also clear that she raises her dogs and litters in excellent conditions and puts their well-being first which was important to us.


We bought our first pup Sam, and returned 6 months later for our second, Bebe. Mary was also great in maintaining contact with us so we could ask questions we had.  A+++"

"You made the whole process so easy, with advice and the occasional phone call, as well as the lovely puppy package that you give to all your puppies' new owners. We couldn't have asked for more!


We've had Georgia for 2 years now and we can totally say she is such a joy to us. To those looking for a Japanese Spitz puppy, we would thoroughly recommend Mary Stuart and ToaToa Kennels, you won't be disappointed. We just love Georgia to pieces.

  • What is the personality of the Japanese Spitz?
    They are generally loyal, friendly, and playful. They are active, but not hyper. Although they may be reserved with strangers, they should be friendly and not shy.
  • How often do you have to groom them and what is involved?
    Japanese Spitz normally have very low maintenance coats - a weekly brushing is usually all that is involved. Bathing is not necessary, as the dog's coat naturally sheds dirt and mud. Unneutered females will shed their undercoat twice a year, extra brushing is all that's required. Neutered females and males shed their undercoat less often.
