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.

SPARKY

BISS Ch. MIru's Stars 'N Stripes CD, RE, CGC
Breeder/Owner: Steve and Miriam Lisker

Sparky was one of the 'once in a decade' dogs. He was a sixth generation of dogs that we have either owned or bred, and we  could trace him back to our  first Akita in the 1980's.  Besides being a show dog who earned his championship from the Bred-By-Exhibitor class, he was a wonderful ambassador for the breed.  He participated in the first Meet the Breeds in NYC, appeared on public television on an AKC sponsored show, performed with his obedience class during the 7 th inning stretch at local minor league ballgames and spent many afternoons in his senior years saying hello to the elementary school kids going home from school.

He earned his VA in 2007.
