True quality - no compromise!
The American Akita is a large and powerful breed with a noble and intimidating presence. They were originally used for guarding royalty and nobility in feudal Japan. These dogs also tracked and hunted wild boar, black bear, and sometimes deer.
The Akita does not back down from challenges and does not frighten easily. Consequently, they are fearless and loyal guardians of their families. Yet they are also affectionate, respectful, and amusing dogs when properly trained and socialised. However, they tend to be stubborn and are not overly fond of strangers. While those can be good traits for a watchdog, they will need an experienced trainer if they are to interact with other animals or people. Novices beware.
That said, dogs of this breed are faithful companions that will be attached to the right owner for life and shower them with adoration and love. Therefore, if you and your family are up for the challenge and consider adopting an American Akita, you'll have a lifelong friend that won't let you down.
The American Akita is a bold and willful dog, naturally wary of strangers but extremely loyal to their family. They are alert, intelligent, and courageous. They tend to be dominant towards other dogs, especially those of the same sex and should therefore be exposed to as many dogs as possible when young. With family, the American Akita is affectionate and playful. They enjoy the companionship of their family and want to participate in daily activities. They're mouthy and enjoy carrying toys and household items around. Despite the common belief that they never bark, they do bark if they believe the situation warrants it, they are also known to grumble, moan, and "roar". Be aware, the American Akita's strong personality can be overwhelming. They are not the dog for a first-time owner, and they are not for the timid. They need an owner who can provide firm, loving discipline.
Activity is essential for this active breed. They need plenty of exercise to keep them from becoming bored and, in turn, destructive. The naturally protective American Akita has a propensity to become aggressive if allowed, or if they aren't raised properly. Training the American Akita is essential, and so is proper socialisation from an early age. Keep in mind that this breed is stubborn, so extra patience is necessary to teach them proper canine manners. This is a dog who is truly fearless, fully confident, and will exhibit unfaltering devotion to family.
