Is it possible for Akitas’ to be raised with love and care and the proper accurate training will turn into the ideal companion? In my research and own experiences, Akitas need tender loving care, and when given this they are the gentlest creatures in the world. This is when stereotyping comes in.

This goes to say that the Akita was NOT breed for hunting because if they were I would have a dead Chihuahua
