The

Coming out all-powerful, independent and full of wits are the strains of a dog breed one a Japanese descent and the other an American but share similar characteristics and gives the most lovable look you would wish for on a dog’s face. This docile buddy is known to look aloof at strangers but harps lively around its family and has both the American breed and the Japanese breed regarded as one in all countries except the U.S.

Petland is honored to offer first-class Akita puppies, and our caring team of puppy specialists will help answer any questions you may have.

The Akita dates back at least 1,000 years as a human companion and helper. This breed was originally called a Matagiinu. They were medium-sized landrace dogs bred to serve as hunting companions. The Akita Matagiinu were prized because they were fearless in their tracking and holding of bear and wild boar, and they were extremely loyal to their owners.

This breed is known for having a very loyal, protective, and alert personality. They adore their family and make great watchdogs. Training this breed at a young age is important as they are strong and energetic dogs. They do well with children and other pets in the home generally if they are introduced while still puppies.

Akitas do require regular bathing and brushing. This eye-catching dog can be bathed as frequently as weekly up to no longer than every four weeks. With their double coats, proper bathing and drying techniques are very important. Being sure to clip this dog’s nails on a routine basis is also highly recommended.

Akitas are very energetic dogs and do need ample amounts of energy to feel their best.
The correct ratio of meat-based protein and micronutrients, as well as healthy carbs and fats, will keep this breed healthy. Many of their owners recommend feeding this breed two meals a day, spaced about twelve hours apart. It is also very important to remember to provide your dog with proper dental care. It is suggested that his teeth get cleaned a minimum of three times a week. Failing to keep his teeth clean can contribute to health issues.

Fact: This breed at one time, was restricted to the Imperial Family and the ruling aristocracy.

Fact: This breed loves the great outdoors and thrives with outdoor family activities.

Fact: This breed is very loyal and protective of his family.
