Akitas can get along with other pets provided they are trained and socialized from a young age. Akitas are protective in nature and may not take well to other pets unless they’ve been socialized regularly.
An Akita is the ideal family dog. Once an Akita regards you as its family, it will do everything in its power to protect you. Akita dogs also love playing with their loved ones so if you are looking for some fun family time, your floof will take charge.
It is best to not leave Akitas at home. They crave movement and exercise and leaving them at home too long could lead to disruptive behavior.
Akitas have been compared to cats when it comes to grooming. They love grooming themselves which makes grooming easy for pet parents!
Akita dogs do not bark much. Akitas are known as “Silent Hunters”. They were bred to be hunting dogs and good hunters never do anything to alert their prey!
