ALCH Zephyr's Noel Baissier CD BN RN CA THDA CGCA CGCU TDIA TT ATD
Owner: Shannon Miller
"Noel" is my first performance Akita. Born Dec 9th 2010 and bred by Wendy & Barry Oelrich in Colorado.

She qualified for ACA's Versatility Excellent Award at 3 years old through her accomplishments/titles in Obedience, Rally, Community Service, OFA/CERF health clearances, and Therapy Work. We continue to train for Graduate Novice & Open in addition to our Therapy Visits at the hospital.

I attribute our success to the many hours spent in training — but, first and foremost to her breeders; they are ultimately responsible and deserving of all credit for the foundation of such an incredibly "versatile" temperament conducive to all that we do.

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.
