1. - Have sufficient knowledge of dogs to ensure the education of a large dog or are you willing, time consuming to acquire this knowledge?

2. - Want to go for a walk you and/or the residual family really every day in the next 11-15 years at least 2 x a day with your Akita - in heat, storm, rain, snow, or ice?

3. - Are you physically able to hold an adult Akita, no matter in what situations?

4. - You have the option to place your dog well, if you can take it on holiday time with?
