About the Akita Dog Breed

Breed History

The Akita breed traces its origins back to Japan and the breed has split into two separate breeds over time. The American version of the Akita comes in many different colors and can even be found with a long-coat although the longer coat is considered a fault at dog shows.

In Japan, the breed is called Akita Inu (Inu means “Dog” in Japanese) and has a short coat and also a very limited color palette of red, fawn, sesame, white or brindle. The Akita Inu is also usually lighter boned than American Akitas.
