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.

Daphne is an amazing girl who loves to make her Mom proud, and she makes me very proud indeed! We have dabbled in a lot of things and Daphne has excelled at most!

In conformation, on her way to her Championship she earned two Best Bred By Exhibitor In Show Awards and several Best of Breeds. Then she easily earned her Grand Championship picking up a Best in Specialty Show and finishing out 2014 in the Top Twenty Akitas while she was at it.

She earned her Coursing Ability Advanced title with a perfect 10 runs in 10 starts. With very limited training in Rally and Obedience we have earned legs and we plan to finish some titles in those venues soon.
