About Akita Puppies
The Akita is considered a national monument in it’s native homeland of Japan where it is revered as a symbol of health, happiness and longevity.
At one time the exclusive property of Japanese nobility, the Akita breed was used to hunt large game including Wild Boar and Deer. Akitas have since found their way into the hearts and homes of people world-wide, and have proven to excel as police dogs, guard dogs, guide dogs, and – most importantly – family pets.
Akita dogs are extremely intelligent, large, energetic, very territorial and highly devoted to their owners. Akitas are loyal family dogs and fearless guardians of the home that excel in obedience work.
These highly intelligent, affectionate dogs make excellent companions. The Akita’s dense, double coat requires regular, thorough brushing, and these large dogs need plenty of outdoor exercise.
Training at an early age is recommended for your Akita puppy to reach it’s full potential as a wonderful family pet.
