Hi, Does anyone have any tips for me as I am about to take on a two year old Akita Inu and he seems very single minded. I have had short hair german pointers and Husky before. Any tips would be great so I can give this BIG two year old a good life. Any mail to firstname.lastname@example.org please. Thanks, Brad
brad, i have akitas and they are very stubborn and very loyal. you need to be totally committeed to having this breed of dog. i walk my akita 2 times a day. they need plenty of exercise, love AND dicpiline. they are usually okay with other dogs and some cats IF they grow up with them. be careful around cats. you should read up on this dog before getting him, just to be fair to him. but all that aside, i love my kuma very much. he is my pride and joy. this particular dog was brought over from japan by helen keller. they are a very good guard dog. just love em!
