In 1937, the Ainu dog was designated in Japan as "a rare speciesprotected by law"
and it was decided that the official name of the breed would be Hokkaido-Inu.
However, the dogs are almost always called Hokkaido-Ken among the Japanese people.
In the Japanese language, both "Inu" and "Ken" mean dog, but "Ken" is usually used with a noun such as the local name (for example, Hokkaido-Ken, Kai-Ken, and Shikoku-Ken). In fact, the use of “Inu” with a noun is generally considered incorrect.
Thus, while the formal name in Japan is Hokkaido-Inu, the expression Hokkaido-Ken is more generally used in the spoken language.
