The Royal Dog Of Japan is a substantial protector endowed with devotion and dignity. A dog of such stature can only be represented by eminent Akita breeders who adhere to the Breed Standard.

The Akita…Large, dignified, courageous, and powerful. Wonderful adjectives describe the breed, but what is it really like to live with an Akita? An Akita is a loyal friend. He will often greet you at the door with the "akita dance", a woo woo or two, and a smiling face but only those closest to him get to see the puppy inside. To the rest of the world he is a noble protector ready to stand his ground if the need arises. This is generally not the breed for a first time dog owner. The Akita is an intelligent, independent thinker and he will quickly gain the upper hand if allowed to do so. Obedience training is a must and a great pathway to understanding the Akita mind.

An Akita has great presence and dignity. Affectionate with family, aloof with strangers, he is a natural watchdog that seldom barks unless there’s a good reason. Akitas will live happily as an only dog or with other family dogs but they may be aggressive towards non-family dogs. Knowledgeable Akita owners understand his inherent drive to be top dog and provide early socialization and obedience training. Akitas combine courage, alertness, and extraordinary strength with endurance and dominance and a properly trained Akita is a joy to live with and a good canine citizen. An undisciplined Akita can become a bully so this is not a breed for everyone.
