socialization is truely important. sometimes people do more harm than good when sheltering a puppy, thinking other dogs or people may scare it. they will asociate those situations with bad emotions and may turn aggressive if terrified. its best to introduce a few new things a day. this way the puppies will grow into socialized adult dogs with great manners.
Although known to be a quiet dog the Akita has strong guarding instincts and will sound the alarm if an intruder breaks into their house. Akita temperament can range from calm to bouncy and aggressive, so the breed should always be supervised around small children and other animals. Akitas like to be "pack leader," so obedience training is also necessary for a harmonious household. The breed will groom itself like a cat, but daily brushing is still necessary, as is daily exercise.
