The Akita dog breed is originating from the mountainous northern regions of Japan. in 1931, Akita has officially declared a Japanese Natural Monument. Akita is very appreciated, and in ancient times these pets belonged only to the nobles and aristocrats. They were in the Imperial Guard, engaged in hunting wild boar, bear and waterfowl. The breed is considered to be the largest of the Spitz family. Nowadays, Akita is the most faithful companion and caretaker. 

The Akita is a large and powerful dog breed with a noble and intimidating presence. They were originally used for guarding royalty and nobility in feudal Japan. These dogs also tracked and hunted wild boar, black bear, and sometimes deer. The Akita does not back down from challenges and does not frighten easily. Consequently, they are fearless and loyal guardians of their families. Yet they are also affectionate, respectful, and amusing dogs when properly trained and socialized.

The Akita does not require a large variety of exercises, but needs daily walks in the fresh air. This breed is not suitable for apartments; its temperament requires a house with an extensive yard. It is advised to keep Akita on a leash in order to avoid aggressive encounters with other pets. This dog enjoys participating in family activities.
