Akita Club of America Education

The Akita Club of America provides quality education for owners, fanciers, exhibitors, breeders, and judges to support best practices of caring, breeding, exhibiting, and judging.

Responsible dog ownership requires a commitment for the life of the dog. This takes time, patience, and training to ensure a puppy will grow up to be a loving companion pet and not a challenge or a nuisance. It is strongly urged that all potential owners evaluate their lifestyle and research breeds and breeders before purchasing an Akita puppy.

Responsible dog owners ensure that their Akitas are socialized, and they abide by local ordinances and leash laws.

Educating the public takes all of us. Bringing a puppy or even an older dog into your home is a major decision. It brings with it a lot of responsibility and commitment.

Do your homework!
