Either would be too active for me to handle.

I love Japanese breeds( I love Japan all together ) so I am partial to the Kai ken. This is, like many breed, is not a breed for everyone and not many can handle them. The same goes for the ACD though, since it too is a working breed.

The kai ken can be aloof/independent. Most often it is.

They can be rather stubborn too.

The thing I'd be cautious about for this breed is-Finding a good breeder outside it's native country might be difficult. I'm sure it could be done, but there also might be the possibility that you would have to import a puppy(which holds risks of it's own). Might be harder to find a good breeder for this breed then the ACD. {I was only able to find one breeder in America years back when I was thinking about getting this breed, I'm not sure if more have come up since then}

But...

If you research the breed and are sure this breed is a good fit for you/your lifestyle, then go with it

This thread goes over owning a Kai ken: http://www.shibainuforum.org/forum/d...-a-kai-ken-/p1

I think I'd prefer the ACD. More drive, more energy.
