Pedigree Dogs – Featured Kennel – Ritetype Akitas

May 30, 2014 – 08:52 am

As per our recent Blog once a month Pedigree Dogs will feature a Show Dog Kennel. The point in doing so is to get the message out there that there are kennels and breeders of pedigree dogs in Ireland that do things the right way

We at Pedigree Dogs would like to thank Bryan & Hazel Aherne of Ritetype Akitas for the following piece, which show cases their kennel and highlights their commitment to their breed.

Breed: American Akita
Origin: Japan
Development USA
Utilisation: Companion Dog
FCI Classification: Group 5 Spitz & primitive types.

We are Bryan & Hazel Aherne of Ritetype Akitas. Our kennel is dedicated solely to exhibiting the American Akita and we have a long-standing love of the breed. The breed first chose us in 1995 with the arrival of our first pet Akita, Kane. We fell in love with this loyal, dignified and unique breed. In 2006, knowing Kane was nearing his final months; we began our search for another male Akita. We wanted an Akita with characteristics that were true to the breed standard. During our search we were drawn to various show kennels and it became apparent that the quality we desired was not available from pet breeders. We made the decision to purchase from a show kennel with the view to showing our puppy. Although we had never exhibited before we felt if showing wasn’t for us, we would then still have a quality family pet. However we were instantly bitten by the ‘show-bug’ and haven’t stopped since.
Nearly six years on and our show team now consist of four dogs all active in the show ring. We show two males and two females and value quality over quantity. We are very proud of our dogs and to date have had a very successful time in the show ring, with this current year being our most fruitful. Dog showing has given us the unique opportunity to connect with people and build friendships across the globe. When we embarked onto the show scene, we were also very fortunate to have contacted Chris McLean of Melodor Akitas whose on-going support, knowledge & guidance over the years has been invaluable and much appreciated. Please feel free to visit our Web site for more information on the American Akita breed standard and to view our dogs and their show wins.

I am so sorry for your loss.

I have had a few special dogs in my lifetime that were wonderful friends. When my last akita Bear died I would wake up in the wee hours and sob. I missed him so. He was just eight when he died of anal gland cancer. All I felt for the longest time was I just want him back.
That was when I found this room and received so much comfort. After a couple of months I started fostering dogs and that helped.
Now I have a new akita puppy named Coco that is a joy to my heart.
I still think of Bear everyday. And Angel, the akita I shared life with before Bear

    I live in Massachusetts. I need to know some akita breeders near me. Preferably in my state or ones near me like New Hampshire. Thank you for whoever helps me.

    • Your state but a word of advise, most decent Akita breeders wont sell to people without Akita experience so hopefully you've owned them before.
