Taiheiyo Kensha is a Japanese Akita kennel located in Southern California. The name means "Pacific Ocean", so the logo was designed with water and the dog in mind. After the logo was established, the branding evolved around it, and thus Taiheiyo Kensha's visual identity was born.
***Edit 2/27/2016: Taiheiyo Kensha recieved a bronze Addy Award through AAF ***
*Note. Owner/Seller will say "Breeder".
