Popularity: Somewhat popular;

Trainability: Akitas are strong and highly intelligent dogs, but can be stubborn when it comes time to train them. Begin training when they are young and don't show any signs of weakness or your dog may take the dominant alpha role in the relationship. The Akita does take well to training though;

Size/Weight: Large sized dogs, weighing in at an average of 70-130 pounds (female to male);

Origin Location/Date: Originated in Japan and was used to guard emperors and for hunting. Have been bred for hundreds and hundreds of years;

Energy Level: High energy, playful and affectionate, requires exercise every day in the form of a good long walk, run or rigorous play time;

Temperament: Very affectionate and loyal, good with children and great with adults, wonderful companion for singles, couples and families. Prefers to be part of a pack and is easy to housebreak. As stated, will take the dominant role with submissive owners. Can become very attached to their owners. Quite protective;

Necessary Space: Due to the fairly substantial exercise requirements for this dog as well as its size, it's best to keep them in larger, more spacious living situations such as a farm or a large house with a yard. Not particularly well suited for small apartments. Would prefer to have another Akita or large dog of the opposite sex to play with. Needs 30 minutes to one hour walk or playtime per day;

Talents: Fiercely loyal, powerful, independent and beautiful. Intelligent and can be stubborn due to their similar nature to the Wolf. Will rarely back down from confrontation. Excellent trackers of deer, wolves and bears;

Life Expectancy: 10-12 years;

Group: Working group;

A few terms and phrases to describe the typical Akita puppy and dog: strong, intelligent, loyal, good companion, muscular, warm coat, protective, large, quiet, fastidious, independent-thinking, trainable, stubborn, need exercise and playful.
