|Wow. Not going to touch the subject of Cesar Millan(I refuse to call him 'the Dog Whisperer'! That title belongs to Paul Owens).
As for not eating... Unless there really is an underlying issue, all dogs will eat. Put the food down, leave it for 30 minutes, then take it up. Do it again at the next feeding time. Even if he doesn't eat for a day or two, chances are he'll be happy to eat by the third morning.
Not sure if this applies to Akitas(Lobo is a mix), but I know that Lobo will go a day or two before he eats sometimes. But of course, he's also sick, and I've heard that Huskies don't always eat daily.
If the dog won't eat for meals, maybe let him eat his food for training? Of course, I can't see an Akita working for common-day kibble.
