Akita Dog Training Guide

    • Origin: The Akita is typically a group dog which was used in Japan for hunting and also as a guard dog.

 

    • Life Expectancy: They normally live just around 11 years.

 

    • Size: They grow a little over two feet high and can weigh between 70 and 115 pounds. The females are a little smaller.

 

    • Exercise: This dog needs a lot of exercise. Proper exercise would be just over 130 minutes per day.

 

  • Attitude: The Akita dog is very powerful. It can be raised with a family although I would suggest older children. The dog is full of energy and should be obedience trained at an early age.
