Acquired: Breeder (professional)
Posted May 23, 2014
The Akita that I worked with, Max, was a perfect example of the breed. These dogs are very loyal to their family members and at the same time, very protective of them. They want what is best for the family and they think about their family members all of the time. These dogs are very quiet and only bark when they think that they need to bark. They do have a bit of a grooming requirement, but other than that, these dogs are really perfect family dogs. The worst part about the Akita is that if they are not properly trained they will bite, and they will bite anyone that they determine to be a threat. So it is important to get your Akita trained and to work with your Akita to help set up ways to let him/her know that someone is okay and accepted.
