I have owned and handled many Akitas throughout my lifetime. I have volunteered at rescue centres and have taken part in canine training programs.
Although as was said, each dog varies from the other, though breed specific traits must be considered, and it is the Akita that I specialise in.
If there is a question that I am unsure of, I have many contacts available that I can converse with before giving you an answer. But I will most definitely always give an answer to the best of my ability, whether I need to research or not.
