Akita InuKarakit is a combination of all the positive qualities that are inherent in other breeds. It may seem implausible, but Akita has practically no negative sides of character. From the very puppy age, all akits have a mischievous, cheerful and playful character. Spontaneous attacks of aggression or changes in mood do not apply to this dog. Her temperament is balanced, it seems that in any situation she “keeps herself in her paws”. Before rushing into battle or interceding for the owner, she will study the situation to the utmost, assess her further actions and possible consequences. Akita is very smart, you can even say that it has the wisdom accumulated over the centuries.
To the negative features of her character can be attributed the limitless curiosity and the desire to be always aware of all the events. She puts her curious and very beautiful nose in every flick of your house, in every box, etc. Just hearing the noise, she will immediately be there to find out the reason for its occurrence. Sometimes Akita is too much. But fortunately or, unfortunately, this quality disappears over time, when the dog is fully mature.
Akita Inu can be an excellent friend of any family, it is also good for single owners, for whom it can become an indispensable companion. If you have small children in your house, then there is an opportunity to shift some of the responsibilities for entertaining kids to Akita.
The main distinguishing feature of this breed is spontaneity and individuality. In order for an Akita to manifest all its natural qualities and intelligence, it must be dealt with from the very first months to the end of life. It is noteworthy that the Akita puppy is considered to be 2-2.5 years old. Paying due attention to Akita, communicating with her and satisfying her curiosity, you will surely cover all costs and as a result you will get a smart and devoted friend.
After the dog crosses the threshold of puppy age and becomes an adult, restraint and composure appear in it. Her behavior becomes calm, and the whole appearance says that she is already completely independent. But It is worth noting that silent and confident behavior, as well as a serene look, is just a mask, under which lies a very soft, friendly and sensitive creature.
Akita is ready to be friends with all members of the family, but under one important condition – people should treat her with respect and respond to her in return. This dog always appreciates a good attitude towards him, but it’s very easy to hurt her feelings. Although the whole appearance of the Akita indicates its independence and unwillingness to listen to others, it is not. She is absolutely not inclined to dirty tricks and pleasures. Akita is a very obedient and even resigned dog.
To strangers or to potential “enemies” Akita refers with hidden disbelief. She never shows off her vigilance and alertness. Things get a lot harder when there is another dog nearby. Whether it’s just a neighborhood dog for a walk or a new pet, an Akita will always see him as his enemy, who is encroaching on her “sacred” territory. In this case, it does not hide its aggression and can immediately rush into battle. Perhaps it is an innate sense of dominance over other quadrupeds. This is another negative trait of character, when even the most beloved owner is unable to stop his pet.
