Hi,I just recently acquired my f/akita named smokey.She seems overly friendly with strangers and very aggressive towards other animals.We live in a very bad area of town and i am sometimes worried about dog thieves.But my real problem is with my other akita who is now about 15 yrs. old.from the first dayall she wanted to do is attack him.Will this change as time passes or will it never get better?
Hi you didn't mention how old your bitch was with akitas as you may no they can be very dog aggressive Bitches and Dogs alike its best to get them very young and socialise them with other famialy pets ,still there no reason your bitch and Dog cannot get along let her no you will not accept any aggression what so ever towards your dog.I have two Akita dogs i broke the golden rule by having two of the same sex they do try it on sometimes but i quickly nip it in the bud.
Hi taz, you mention your new Akita female, and then your old girl who you say attacks'him'. Is there another male in the mix? I would say if your 15 yr old is aggressive now, and always has been, you're not going to change her now. The only thing you can do is keep her seperated from your other dogs. I have worked with some of my dogs who display aggression towards each other, and have had great sucess with them. They were all quite young though. I'm not saying it can't be done, but I think it will be a very difficult task at this time of her life.Good luck with her..
