Hi all, I’m due to pick up an Akita pup next month and I’m super excited about it! It’s my first time owning an Akita. Previous to the Akita I had a German Shepard and a Boxer. I was hoping to get some tips from owners in training the dog. Anything I should be aware about. I currently reside in Toronto, Canada and winter is amongst us. I heard these dogs thrive within winter. At what age would be suitable to expose the dog at snowy, winters conditions? I’ve attached photos from the breeder! I can’t wait to meet her!
