• An Akita’s exercise level is medium; therefore they will be happy with a good daily walk or jog.
  • Akitas are not known to be an overly hyperactive breed, but they can both climb and dig, so a secure six foot fenced area is needed when confined outdoors.
  • Akitas need to be an integral part of their family’s household, not one that is mainly kept as an “outside dog.”
  • The Akita’s genetically strong hunting instinct requires that they should never be allowed to roam loose or off leash in an unfenced area.
