Fault—narrow or snipey head. Muzzle—broad and full. Distance from nose to stop is to distance from stop to occiput as 2 is to 3. Stop—well defined, but not too abrupt. A shallow furrow extends well up forehead. Nose—broad and black; black noses on white Akitas preferred, but a lighter colored nose with or without shading of black or gray tone is acceptable. Disqualification—partial or total lack of pigmentation on the nose surface. Ears—the ears of the Akita are characteristic of the breed; they are strongly erect and small in relation to rest of head.

There's American and Japanese, both

are Akitas, and it depends on who you talk to which is the better one to have.
Out of wikipedia (Not the best source, but it's true in this case)
Debate remains among Akita fanciers of both types whether there are, or should be, two distinct breeds of Akita. To date, the American Kennel Club (AKC),[2] Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) and Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC),[3] guided by their national breed clubs, consider American and Japanese style Akitas to be two types of the same breed, allowing free breeding between the two.

    I have a two year old Pit-Bull, Rottweiler, Akita, Blue-Heeler, Dingo, Wired terrier mix.
    I've had him since he was puppy. What are some things he may want to do because of his breeds?
    What are some of his traits due to his breeds?

    • He will probably have the personality traits of the most dominant breed in his DNA....with a few noticeable traits from the next dominate sounds like he should be an active fun dog...maybe liking hikes and romping the best. What have you discovered he likes to do?

    I am debating whether i should adopt a german shepherd pup or Akita inu . THere is a big difference between the Akita Inu and American Akita . Most of the websites i visited, had them put as 1 breed . I consider them dif …

    Would a German shepherd be better for me and my Family or an Akita inu (not American Akita) ?
    Whats an AKita inu's characteristics and personality traints and background info ?? (experts only)

    • I have studied Akitas for several years as well as own a half American half Akita Inu myself and know their history, temperament, behavioral problems, really almost anything you want to know. So I would definitely consid … him while he is eating and take away his bowl for a few seconds. If he growls or barks, use the top of your hand to gently pop him on the chin. As long as you don't do it hard, it won't hurt, it just feels very awkward!
