Bred to hunt bear and guard royalty, even the gentlest Akita should be treated as carefully as a weapon. Keep the safety on! Train her thoroughly and keep her leashed or in your house or fenced yard. If everyone did this, breed restrictions wouldn't
Large, powerful and alert, the Akita is a working breed that originated in Japan. The breed's thick double coat can be any color including white, brindle or pinto. An Akita trademark is the plush tail that curls over its back.
