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.

MIKKI

GCH / UKC CH Huntmere Always In Your Corner At Mimar CD BN RAE CGC VA AOM
Owner: Mary Mignogna
"Mikki" started her performance career at a young age and obtained her first title, Rally Novice, at 6½ months of age. She then proceeded to obtain her Canine Good Citizen, Beginner Novice, Companion Dog, UKC Championship, AKC Championship, and Rally Advanced titles before she turned 2 years of age.

She then decided to go through the Akita "zoomies" while we were working on our Rally Excellent title. She overcame the "zoomies" and proceeded to obtain her Rally Excellent title and then her Rally Advanced Excellent title in 10 trials! We have had many firsts together, including our first owner-handled Champion, obtaining an Award of Merit at the 2012 Pre-Nationals in Indianapolis and making the cut in the Working Group in 2013 at the Lorain, Ohio show.

Mikki was bred by Deanne and Paul Hunt and she was born 08/29/2009. Can't wait to see what our future holds!
