It was in January 19th 2012 when Tika Kazuki Go (Pedigree) become part of our family. When we got her she was two months old puppy and we decided to give her a new name  – Hana (Japanese for flowers). After 10 years of having Siberian Husky, we thought that Akita Inu was good breed for us as it was also Spitz dog, however with a different temperament. And we were right. Hana, to some degree, has an independent nature, but she knows that she is part of our family and she accepts our authority. She loves people/kids and accepts other dogs, as well, which we accomplished though encouraging social interactions when she was a puppy.

Hana really loves all members of our family

Akitas are a relatively low-maintenance breed when it comes to grooming needs. They typically blow their coat, or shed out the undercoat, twice a year
