Midnite Akitas, Lynn MorganThe Akita…Large, dignified, courageous, and powerful. Wonderful adjectives describe the breed, but what is it really like to live with an Akita? An Akita is a loyal friend. He will often greet you at the door with the "akita dance", a woo woo or two, and a smiling face but only those closest to him get to see the puppy inside. To the rest of the world he is a noble protector ready to stand his ground if the need arises. This is generally not the breed for a first time dog owner. The Akita is an intelligent, independent thinker and he will quickly gain the upper hand if allowed to do so. Obedience training is a must and a great pathway to understanding the Akita mind.

An Akita has great presence and dignity. Affectionate with family, aloof with strangers, he is a natural watchdog that seldom barks unless there’s a good reason. Akitas will live happily as an only dog or with other family dogs but they may be aggressive towards non-family dogs. Knowledgeable Akita owners understand his inherent drive to be top dog and provide early socialization and obedience training. Akitas combine courage, alertness, and extraordinary strength with endurance and dominance and a properly trained Akita is a joy to live with and a good canine citizen. An undisciplined Akita can become a bully so this is not a breed for everyone.

Akita from outside the US ( AKIHO Akita)

Japanese Akita can not have a black muzzel unless they are a Brindle. For more info look into Akiho Akitas. I have a pure white akita from outside the US. I could not get a quality Japanese (Akiho ) Akita in the US. Breeders suspect you will crossbreed with the American Akita. I have Had both types, one was a cross breed (tweeny). They are very different in body type. I prefer the Akiho Akita, the body type is better for longer life and less hip issues. Mokoto parrents are both champions, He was $1700 shipped from the Netherlands. go to akita-kennel.com for this breeder. No issuse in the shipping very easy

  • Avatar Kelsea Japanese (not American) Akita breeder in or near South Carolina?
    Jan 13, 2009 by Kelsea | Posted in Dogs

    Does anyone know of an Akita breeder that breeds the actual Japanese type of Akita in or around South Carolina? I prefer the look of this Akita, rather than the bearish face of the American. But if the American is really my only option, I would still love this breed too. Also, what is the price range of these puppies?

    • There aren't many JA breeders in the US since they cannot be shown here. You will have to look long and hard and the chances of finding a good one near you are not especially good. I think your best bet would be to conta …ge from $300-$700 (possibly more) and a show dog will be around $1000+. (These are rough estimates from what I have heard from reputable breeders, not hard and fast numbers.)

    I hate these kind of questions, and I hate being one of the people who ask. However, I was looking on the internet, trying to find breeders of Akitas (the smaller, lighter Japanese ones; I don't like the way the American …okay to bark and when it's not, he's watchful and protective, but NEVER aggressive. I know what I'm doing and how to do it. I appreciate your concern, but it's not needed.

    Thanks guys.

    • I really doubt you'll find a true japanese akita in the US unless its been imported directly from japan.

      You will have to do some really hardcore research and you might need to pay a lot of money to import a dog.

      I don't like the look of american akitas either. they are too big and too bear-like.
