The Akita Dog
Named A National Treasure
in his Native Country, Japan.

The Akita breed, history dates back some 300 years,
is primarily a working dog.  It has been used for guard work, a
guide for the blind, and a hunting companion.  It is a strong
web-footed swimmer, and also good at sled work.

There is a spiritual significance attached to this large,
powerfully built dog.  In Japan, Akitas are affectionately regarded as
loyal companions and pets, protectors of the home and children and a
symbol of good health.  Akitas are alert, responsive, dignified and
reserved, but courageous, friendly towards people but, like a lot of
other breeds, often aggressive towards other dogs.  The Akita
barks infrequently and then only as a warning signal.  As
with most dogs, an Akita puppy should be well socialized
and obedience trained.

Height male:  25 - 28 in. (63.5 - 71 cm) at shoulder.    
Height Female:  23 - 26 in (58.4 - 66 cm) at shoulder.
Protection:  Very good.                                                      
Watchdog:  Excellent.                                                        
Other names:  Akita Inu; Japanese Akita.                    
Life Expectancy:  10 - 12 years.
