Did You Know?

  • The Akita is one of seven breeds designated as a natural monument in his native country of Japan.
  • At one time, Akita ownership was restricted to the Imperial family and the ruling aristocracy; caring & feeding of the Akita were detailed in elaborate ceremony and special leashes were used to denote the Akita’s rank and the standing of his owner.
  • There is a spiritual significance attached to the Akita; when a child is born in Japan, the proud family will usually receive a small statue of an Akita signifying health, happiness, and a long life.
  • The renowned Helen Keller is credited with bringing the first Akita into the United States in 1937.
  • The breed will groom itself like a cat, but daily brushing is still necessary, as is daily exercise.
  • Akitas like to be "pack leader," so obedience training is also necessary for a harmonious household.
  • The Akita was first registered with the AKC in 1972.
