|Samson that is one of the reasons we chose to have Akitas,for dogs of their size they are couch potatoes. A half hour in the morning and again in the evening as well as plenty of time to play with each other which they typically spend laying around sunning themselves and a weekly good run is more than enough for them,they also bark at next to nothing,unless someone they don't know or don't like is within their comfort zone,it's too much effort for them to bother leaving the nice comfy spot they have. My husband and I both have chronic pain issues,his from his job,mine from a car accident.
We did the research and found a breed that fit our abilities and lifestyle and would not need 5 miles a day in exercise to be happy then worked with a breeder to find the most likely puppy to fit our circumstances,our dogs are well cared for,in excellent health,well socialized,and seem very happy just being here and being loved. I have had people from animal control here for other reasons who have seen my pups and just stopped to pet them and tell me how sweet and beautiful they are,and that it's obvious they are well cared for. So I agree,different dogs,and different breeds have different requirements and although someone else might not think I do enough,they seem to,they in fact will go back to the car to go home when they have had enough of a run.
