The Akita is a large dog breed with a strong body and personality. Most of the time, their presence can be intimidating for some people, but they are actually very affectionate, loving, respectful, loyal and smart dogs.
Just like any other dog breed, they need to be trained and socialized properly from an early age, otherwise, they may develop a problematic behavior.
Of course, if you choose to adopt one from an animal shelter, it’s important to understand that they can still be re-socialized and re-trained, whether they are adults or not – and yes, this rule can apply to any dog breed.
Many owners of Akita have told us that these furry creatures can be very attached to their families and that this bond and their loyalty will surely last a lifetime.
