These days we see the Akita as a
valuable and friendly companion to his own people. However,
if you intend to keep an Akita you should understand the
history of the breed.
The Akita is usually sweet natured,
friendly, tolerant and understanding of his own. However,
he may be reserved towards others, and so tends to keep
a close eye on them. He is certainly not quick to bark or
to bite. He is careful in what he does and how he keeps
However, he may be entirely different
when faced with other dogs, particularly those of the same
sex. It is best, therefore, to couple dogs with bitches
in the kennels. He is very good with children.
