The Akita is STRIKING!
No other word can better explain this alert and powerfully built canine.
The Akita is renown for it courage and loyalty, being one of the family.
We try very hard to place our
puppies in great homes, our application process is detailed, and we do not
accept deposits early on we like to get to know our potential puppy owners.
I do not want anyone to feel they have to buy a puppy because they are obligated
or because they have already applied money. Good communication with our
potential puppy home is essential! We need to know that not only are we
placing our puppies in a good home, but we can communicate with that family for
the lifetime of our puppy.
Breeding and showing these
dogs isnt just a sport... or a hobby... It is what we enjoy (aside from our
human family-they are apart of our family). We take great pride in our
akitas, their personalities and accomplishments. But in this same breath,
we feel very responsible for their well-being and happiness. We very much
look forward to the small notes in email from owners updating us, the occasional
letter and photos in the mail, and the abundant amount of Holiday Cards at the
end of each year. We also encourage hearing about our puppies as they
grow, our door doesn't close when an issue may arise... We want to know it
all... and offer our assistance and help where needed. This gives us
knowledge as to the success or failure for the choices weve made which
will affect our future and the future of this breed.
To all potential owners of a
MajikSun Akita, we stress the importance of your involvement with this breed.
Your willingness to educate yourself with the Akita will make a world of
difference when introducing a puppy into your family.

America offers many areas of education and participation, from health to
socialization - direct hands on dedication to functions, committees and
decisions that affect the breed in the United States.

demanding as a family member, they are also described as aloof.
Introducing an Akita into your family is a HUGE commitment, and will
require diligent training and socialization.
Your knowledge concerning the traits with the Akita is essential to a
safe and happy environment.

Akita is not the right dog for everyone. The person who assumes responsibility
for an Akita MUST be able to take control of the dog at an early age. This
means that the person has to be the dominant party in this relationship. Dominance
is more a state of mind, but you must also be prepared to physically dominate
the dog if necessary. Akitas, as with most dogs, live their lives in a
pack environment, whether the pack be animals or people. If you are not
willing to be the leader of the pack, the Akita most certainly will. So
the Akita owner must have the energy and will to keep firm, consistent
discipline as the dog matures. A little work and persistence in training
in the early months with an Akita will reap you huge benefits as a well-behaved
member of the family down the road.
