Welcome to my website, a site dedicated to the wonderful Akita dog.
The site is mainly concerned with the American Akita as it’s the Akita that is more common here in the west. I will, however, be looking at the Japanese Akita as well.
I’ll be posting useful information on the site about all aspects of owning one of these magnificent dogs, both negative and positive, make no mistake, owning an Akita takes a special kind of person, as you’ll discover by reading the website. This is not a dog for the faint hearted. You will learn how to choose the right Akita puppy.
There are two types of Akitas, the American Akita and the Japanese Akita also known as the Akita Inu. There’s so much disagreement about what is the real Akita from Japanese purists and we’ll be looking at these in depth.
However what’s undisputed is that the Japanese Akita, the Akita Inu, is the original Akita from where the American Akita stems from. I’m not concerned with the purity of the breed, that’s not what this site is about. I’m going to be discussing what owning one of these wonderful dogs involves. Learn about training an Akita, what to feed an Akita and what to look for in Akita puppies.
I’ll be looking at everything that goes into what makes this dog tick. You’ll learn the positive traits of an Akita.
The Akita is a dog that has had a varied and wonderful history, it’s been used as a hunting dog, a fighting dog, a guard dog and a police dog to name just a few of the roles the American Akita has been used for.
It’s easy to see why the Akita is worshiped in Japan as the epitome of loyalty and courage, all dogs are loyal, but the Akita will literally die for its pack, if you gain the loyalty of this dog you will have a fearsome protector for as long as it lives.
Everyone has their own favorite breed of dog but there’s something a little special about the American Akita and owning one requires an experienced dog owner to deal with the Akita’s stubborn streak. Have a look around and check out the articles, I’ll be adding more whenever I get the chance.
