The Akita is a working purebred dog that’s loyal, dignified, and courageous. This doggo is beautiful with a medium-length double coat that can come in a wide variety of colors. Just take a look at the Akita photos below to see for yourself.
This purebred will make an excellent family dog. They are friendly, affectionate with their family members, and good with kids. However, they will prefer to be the only dog in the house. If they are raised as a puppy with an older dog, then maybe they’ll be fine. But otherwise, the Akita should be the only family dog. This pooch makes for an excellent watchdog, and they are wary around strangers. So, when taking your beloved Akita out and about, make sure they are on a leash. Also, proper training and early socialization will be a great idea.
Training may not be easy, though. This pooch is independent and headstrong, so that that consistency will be a must.
Akitas don’t have high energy levels, but they do require moderate exercise each day. They’ll do well with a long walk or a jog. If the weather isn’t ideal, they’ll be just as happy to play a game with you out in the fenced-in backyard. They are a large dog breed and will do better in a bigger home than an apartment, so they will appreciate having a backyard to call their own.
