About the Akita

A natural monument in Japan, the Akita’s proud heritage includes hunting large game such as bear, elk, and boar. This powerful and dignified member of the Working Group is renowned for courage and loyalty, but may not be tolerant of other animals. His luxurious double coat can include any combination of vibrant colors. Aloof toward strangers, they form strong family bonds. Highly intelligent with keen sense of humor, the Akita responds best to respectful commands and training techniques that rely on motivation rather than force. Strong-willed and proud, Akitas are not receptive to abusive methods. Akitas originated in Japan many, many years ago, and have been designated a natural monument of Japan. They are a large, impressive breed with natural guarding instincts. While generally reserved with people they don’t know, Akitas are affectionate with their family. They tend to be independent, and while they will always know where you are in your home, they do not need constant attention as do some of the more dependent breeds. For more about this amazing breed, please spend some time here at our site. There’s a wonderful world to explore.

Welcome Bags


Hope this finds you enjoying spring and awaiting a wonderful summer filled with friends and good times.

This year I was asked to do the Welcome Bags for the ACA Nationals. Hard to believe the nationals are just months away!! We are trying to have USEFUL welcoming bags -- don't worry some "comfort food" but more useful items! So with that -- yes you guessed it -- comes a
plea for donations! To make things easier I will be getting everything here and assembling the bags so they are done before.

So I am looking for monetary donations. ANY AMOUNT is welcome! We will also be posting a list of donors in the Update and the Catalog!

If interested in donating (yes I hear you running right now to your wallet), here is how!




Patti Dolezal
PO Box 2684

Estes Park CO 80517

Make sure to indicate the donation is for the welcome bags so it gets to the right account!!

Thanks so much and hoping to see you at the grand event!
