Akita Club of America VAX (1/2015)

My boy Heston has exceeded my expectations in so many ways; from his 1st Rally trial at just 6 months old to training for agility. Sometimes we qualify sometimes we don't, but we are having fun along this journey. Keeps me humble, yes, he is an Akita! I am so proud of his accomplishments in both the show & performance ring.

But our recent Therapy Dog Visits have really shown me a special side of Heston. He has brought joy to the mentally disabled men we visit. He kisses their faces & hands and makes them smile, makes me smile too! Heston is a once in a lifetime Akita and we are enjoying every day together.

About the Akita

A natural monument in Japan, the Akita’s proud heritage includes hunting large game such as bear, elk, and boar. This powerful and dignified member of the Working Group is renowned for courage and loyalty, but may not be tolerant of other animals. His luxurious double coat can include any combination of vibrant colors. Aloof toward strangers, they form strong family bonds. Highly intelligent with keen sense of humor, the Akita responds best to respectful commands and training techniques that rely on motivation rather than force. Strong-willed and proud, Akitas are not receptive to abusive methods. Akitas originated in Japan many, many years ago, and have been designated a natural monument of Japan. They are a large, impressive breed with natural guarding instincts. While generally reserved with people they don’t know, Akitas are affectionate with their family. They tend to be independent, and while they will always know where you are in your home, they do not need constant attention as do some of the more dependent breeds.
