The Akita is a well-regarded Japanese dog breed, with many visual similarities to the Shiba Inu. They are larger than their Shiba cousins and are generally loyal and affectionate. The most famous Akitas tend to have orange coats, but the breed can come in any colour. They make great models and are ideal for brand campaigns looking to hire a unique and powerful looking dog. Akitas are highly intelligent and relish a challenge.
The Akita dog breed is renowned for their loyalty to their owners and therefore make exceptional guard dogs, their large size certainly also helps with this as males can grow to over 28 inches and can weigh in the region of 50 kilograms. While their cleanliness makes them a prime choice for many homes, they are very protective and may therefore react poorly to other animals. Akita dogs that have experience within modelling and acting are less indicative of this and can learn to tolerate other animals but will frequently try to demonstrate their superiority to retain their title as ‘top dog’.
Due to the size and personality of the Akita, our team at Urban Paws takes all necessary precautions when checking its behavioural tendencies. This allows us to guarantee that they are comfortable working within a range of modelling and acting environments. As is the case with all of our animals we also carry out a series of health checks to verify that they are up-to-date with all of the latest vaccinations and in good physical condition.
