From Dog Breed Info: The Akita is docile, intelligent, courageous and fearless. Careful and very affectionate with its family. Sometimes spontaneous, it needs a firm, confident, consistent pack leader. Without it, the dog will be very willful and may become very aggressive to other dogs and animals. It needs firm training as a puppy. The objective in training this dog is to achieve a pack leader status. It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in its pack. When we humans live with dogs, we become their pack. The entire pack cooperates under a single leader.
An Akita also happens to be one of the most beautiful dog breeds in the world. If you own an Akita we’d love for you to send us any pictures or stories you might have. As we always do with our Dog Breed of the Day, we’ve assembled a number of pictures of both Akita dogs and puppies for your entertainment. We hope you enjoy the gallery and be sure to click “next” beneath each photo to view them all!
