Yes, shiba inus shed. They are most known for "blowing" (completely losing their undercoat) their coats twice a year. They also shed during the rest of the year, but not to the same level as many short-haired breeds.

Regular, frequent grooming will not only help deal with this, it will also accustom your Shiba to handling. Start grooming as soon as your Shiba enters your household, because if you delay, you'll have a hell of a time getting your dog to accept ear cleaning and nail trimming.
