About Akitas: Japanese Akita Info

The Japanese Akita is one of several 'Spitz' type breeds from Japan where 'Akita Inu' means big or large dog. The Japanese Akita breed is not for a novice dog owner. These are independent and rather dominant dogs and care must be taken when strange children and other dogs are about, although Akitas are more amenable with cats.

Children and Japanese Akitas

Bitches are better with children than dogs. They are, however, very loyal to their own family. Akitas are courageous and as such, good watchdogs without barking too much. Their hunting instincts are strong and this must be remembered at all times.
