    Okay- recommended with use of another book, internet research, or talking to a 3 time Akita owner who knows the breed better than most

    This is a great book with true pictures of the Akita and some very helpful information. Slightly boring, BUT AGAIN somewhat helpful. The information was NOT all well researched. Not all history is true. *Before you get an Akita please know the breeds history! Especially Hachi-Ko! Very helpful grooming information and care information. AKC STANDARDS for the Akita which have changed somewhat. Please, when you see your Akitas weight compared to the standard weight, do NOT think your Akita is overweight or you are handling them wrong. Follow the tips throughout this book for sure! NEVER use one resource when preparing for or when getting or when owning an Akita. I was pleased with this book. Check it out and AGAIN talk to others who have owned Akitas. I have owned two and I now have a third. They are great pets!
