Ch Kobu's Kount on the Ruff Rider AOM VA RN NAP NJP OFP CGC TT
Owner: Lawrence Collins
Teddy came to us as our first show dog from Susan Cargill of Kobu Akitas. He finished his championship shortly after turning a year old, and he won two AOM's at Akita specialties.

He often attends "Meet The Breed" at the Reliant World Series of Dog Shows, and he made one appearance at Eukanuba for "Meet The Breed". He is especially good with children despite his size.

He earned qualifying scores in Agility and Rally at two Akita National Specialties, and won multiple "Properties" classes at the Tucson National Specialty. His favorite agility venue is CPE because they have events that don't require weave poles.

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.
