Hi all,

As some of you may have read I have recently brought an Akita into my home, and after doing this I wanted to search for fellow Akita owners and also seek some advice if needed along the route of caring for an Akita, but I have just seen that this page will be getting shut down in March, and would like to know if there was any other forum directed at Akita ownership?

Hi, thanks for responding to my post smile.

Me and my partner actually went and got our Akita from the breeder the day after I posted the original post and so far we haven't had any hiccups. Apart from the occasional jump up onto the baby, we tell her off and she don't do it again. We couldn't have asked for a better breed to welcome into our home! She has also settled into our home a lot quicker then expected as well which was a bonus for us. We haven't been as lucky to welcome snow to London but we are check the weather forecast everyday as the last time it snowed my daughter was to young to remember, so it will be a fun experience, especially now we have got the Akita to jump around a whole lot more.

Me and my partner were a little luckier as we only had an hour and 30mins train journey each way. We to also decided on a different pup when we arrived as my partner felt more attached to this one when we began to play with the puppys.
Good luck to you also big grin

Hi everyone,

So me and my girlfriend have recently moved into our own place with our 2 year old daughter, and have decided to add another member to the family. After tons of research we have decided to look at the Akita more in depth and find out other peoples experiences as there is a lot of horror stories behind this magnificent breed!

How is the Akita with people? We have a high volume of people coming into the house daily so the Akita must have to deal with this.

Is there any truth behind the aggression? We have heard loads of stories and peoples opinions (from people who haven't actually owned an Akita) suggesting they are instinctively aggressive.

We have loads of visitors also staying over, and will sleep within the front room. The same place we are planning on making the bedroom for the Akita so will this be a problem?

If there is anything else you'd like to add then please do as as much information on personal experiances will be very much appreciated.

Thanks
Robin
