The Akita is a noble and devoted dog, but so much depends on the owner taking responsibility for its being a good neighbor, and family member.  The Akita has a dominant type personality.  Akitas require a great deal of socialization as puppies, without it they will become aggressive and unpredictable.  Obedience training is imperative even at a young age.  These dogs are smart and will learn quickly. Akitas have a tendancy to be aggressive towards other dogs, especially of the same sex. 

The Akita has a coarse, stiff, short-haired coat that sheds heavily twice a year, and should be cared for with weekly brushing. A combination of a slicker brush, steel Pin brush and grooming comb is all you need to give your Akita a perfect coat. During shedding time, you may want to brush daily and use an undercoat rake. They require a significant amount of grooming with a firm bristle brush. Akitas should not be bathed regularly as it can remove the natural waterproofing of their coat.
