  1. My dog is aggressive with our other dog

    Dog Training and Behavior
    We have a Akita (Sasha) who just recently had puppies. We thought her recent aggression in the past few months was because she was protecting her babies but now that there is only one puppy left in the house (Maxie) and he's 4 months old, I don't think she's being aggressive for the puppies...

    Dog Health
    Hello everyone! I'm new to this forum so nice to meet all of you. I wanted to get everyone's opinion. So I have a 6 year old Akita.

    New Additions
    Hi! We have an 8 month old Akita - obviously a breed meant for generally colder climates - and yet we live in Salvador, Brazil - a city with a considerably tropical, humid climate with no real change in season. We acquired our little buddy during the hotter months, and though he was a much...

  6. New Akita puppy housebreaking questions

    New Additions
    Hi all, Me and my girlfriend got our new Akita puppy yesterday. The puppy is still very young (it will be 2 months in 20 days). The one issue we have is that it doesn't do potty outside.

  7. Agression Walking after being cornered

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 3 year old Akita, neutered male. A few weeks ago someone decided ( I kid you not ) because our dogs "looked like each other" that they would get along, so while my dog and I were sitting in a fairly small room, this gentleman brought his male wolf hybrid in with no warning and blocked...

  10. Are dog smells breed specific?

    Dog Breeds
    Hello, My border collie never has a bad smell. I can put my nose right onto his fur and there is absolutely no foul odor, and our home has never "smelled like dog". I know 'doggie smells' can be associated with poor nutrition and too much bathing, but is it breed specific, too? It seems that...
  11. What breeds is my dog?

    Dog Breeds
    So I recently made the trip to the Boulder Valley Humane Society and left with a beautiful puppy named Farrah. At the shelter they said she was a german sheperd mix. Well I've had many people asking what else she might have in her. She literally looks like a mix between a fox and a coyote...
