Bred to hunt bear and guard royalty, even the gentlest Akita should be treated as carefully as a 100lb weapon. Keep the safety on! Train her thoroughly and keep her leashed or in your house or fenced yard. If everyone did this, breed restrictions wouldn't be considered.
Although known to be a quiet dog the Akita has strong guarding instincts and will sound the alarm if an intruder breaks into their house. Akita temperament can range from calm to bouncy and aggressive, so the breed should always be supervised around small children and other animals. Akitas like to be "pack leader," so obedience training is also necessary for a harmonious household. The breed will groom itself like a cat, but daily brushing is still necessary, as is daily exercise.
