Each episode of Shiba Inuko-san contains one to two mildly amusing jokes and/or sight gags, and that's about it. If that's all you're looking for, you'll get a pretty good return on your investment (1 minute and 30 seconds per episode). What you won't get is anything very memorable or interesting. The characters have essentially one trait each, the voices are your standard high-pitched moe performances, and even the art is fairly dull; the character designs, aside from Shiba Inuko-san herself, are utterly forgettable.

To be fair, you can't expect much more from a show that asks so little of your time. The question does remain, read more

So far, this series has become one of the reasons I love short, quick ONA or TV anime.

There really is no story. Do anime like this ever have story? No, not really. However, the characters are enjoyable, and tend to make me giggle every episode. Of course, with the short length, you don't get much, but this anime will bring a smile, however slight, to your face.
And that's all a show needs for me, really, is enjoyable characters.

The art is nice. Nothing less from a 4-koma adaptation, really. And as for sound, there isn't much during the show itself. The voice actors all do read more

Judging a series by the length of the episodes can be quite difficult to refuse but looking past that, Shiba Inuko-san is a very entertaining series of VERY SHORT episodes that involve 3 characters. With plenty of funny moments in this series under the major constraint of having only roughly 90 seconds of actual content.

Considering the fact that you are only spending at most 2 regular episode lengths watching this, you are getting the bang for your buck. If you want a few chuckles, Shiba Inuko-san is a good place to start.

Anime: Recorder to Randoseru Do♪
Short animations, school environment, funny misunderstandings. 
reportRecommended by Frezlaj
Anime: Kyou no Asuka Show
Both are very short comedies about highschool students. Pretty random too. 
reportRecommended by SirBlackCat
Anime: Chi's Sweet Home
Both anime shorts about cute animals that can talk.
Shiba Inuko-san can talk directly to people, however Chi's voice is only heard by the audience and other animals on the show.

Anime: Wakaba*Girl
Another short anime about cute girls doing cute slice of life things. Inuko-san and Wakaba-san are both the odd one out in their group of friends. Wakaba is the sheltered rich girl who didn't really experience things, while Inuko-san looks like a dog.
