PROS AND CONS

PROS

CONS

 Akita’s are very loyal to their families and they will do their best to protect you from enemies or obstacles.  Akita’s are very aggressive, especially to the same sex species.

If Akita would be your first dog then this might not be a great choice because this breed requires some past experience with other dogs, keep this in mind.

Long eye-contact can be a challenge for Akita’s and they might response on that with aggressive behaviour.
