Akita Pictures / Butch
« on: February 19, 2008, 04:31:22 am »
This is Butch we think he is a 1 year old Akita mix. Any thoughts?  He is about 25" and about 65 lbs I know that is small.

Behavior, Housebreaking, Obedience / crateing
« on: January 25, 2008, 01:10:22 am »
I have 2 dog's one I have had since she was a puppy and the other is a stray I recently found. Chopper is crate trained and it has been very useful because they need to be seperated when eating and sometimes Chopper get a little to rambunctious for Butch (the stray). My issue is this. I seems alittle unfair that Chopper always has to be crated because Butch doesn't react well to the crate. Any suggestions on how to handle this?

Behavior, Housebreaking, Obedience / to tug or not to tug?

I have an Akita mix and a Pitbull. I have heard that you shouldn't let dogs play tug, but my pit will grab a sock or a towel and drop in front of the akita to get him to play tug with her. should this be avoided or is it ok? It has not yet caused any problems between them.

Akita Discussions / looking for advice
« on: January 19, 2008, 01:07:08 pm »
I have a 2 year old female pit bull. Yesterday I found an Akita mix (male about a year old) that was apparently abandoned. I took him to animal control to have him checked for a micro chip and to see if anyone reported him missing but they said that someone probably just dropped him off because they didn't want him. they told me they think he's about a year old. So far the two dogs are getting along wonderfully and if I don't find his home and they continue to get along I am going to keep him. My question is this are the dog agression issues only between the same sex? In my research it looks like these should be one of the worst possible breed combinations but they are getting along great so far. I have also read they akita's are food aggressive but I thought that was a learned behavior, ( he has not shown and food aggression yet) I guess I want to know if anyone can give me an ide of what I'm in for. I don't know if it matters but both dogs are the same size (about 60-70 lbs). I have expierence dealing with large dogs but not Akita's specificaly. Any advice ya'll can give me about what to expect would be appreciated. They think he may be mixed with a husky.
