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.

Makoto is one of those dogs with ability to make even the most skeptical, non-dog person fall in love with him. He is patient and kind, and is known to gravitate toward those individuals in the crowd who are in need of a loving nudge or lick. His willingness to roll with it, has been proven during his adventures in achieving legs and titles in Conformation, Lure Coursing, Barn Hunt, Therapy, Trick Dog, and Dog Scouts. He earned both Championships completely owner handled and finished his UKC Championship with quite an eventful Best in Show win. His amazing temperament has made him a perfect partner in Meet the Breed booths, and has afforded him the ability to pass the ATTS Temperament test as well as AKC's Canine Good Citizen, Urban Canine Good Citizen and Community Canine tests. Makoto continues his dog sport adventures by playing in Rally, Obedience, Agility, Carting and Nosework, and can often be found sprawled out in front of his favorite fan.
