Akita Rescue Organizations In All States

If you are considering getting a Akita, you'll want to check out the incredible book "The Complete Guide to Akitas". It's written in an easy-to-understand way but still has the expert knowledge to help any new owner successfully raise their Akita from puppy to old-age. It's widely available, so pick up a copy if you see one, or click here to grab one on Amazon.

Originally bred as a guard dog for Japanese royalty as well as a hunter of wild boar and black bears, the Akita is a loyal and fearless breed with a noble presence. An affectionate and respectful breed, the Akita will provide endless amusement to their family. They have a steadfast loyalty to their family and will not back down from a challenge – making them wonderful watch and guard dogs. Akita’s like to voice their opinions – often making moans, grunts, and mumbles. Their guardian tendencies make them weary of strangers, but they will generally welcome them into the home. They are very people-oriented and will not do well being left alone for long periods of time. Akita’s are also known for “mouthing” and they can often be found carrying anything they get can their paws on in their mouths. Though intelligent, the Akita can be a challenge to train thanks to their stubborn and willful attitude, so early and consistent training is a must. If you are looking for a breed with unwavering loyalty, unique characteristics, and a genuine love for their family, the Akita is for you!
