We at Sondaisa
Akitas are a family, first and foremost! Temperament is a top priority for
us here at home. Our 2 children do a wonderful job socializing
puppies. Our daughter, Rilee, is a big part of their, care,
training, and showing. We attempt and have accomplished many obedience titles and Canine Good Citizenship Certificates
on our Conformation Champions. Although the task is
difficult and time consuming it is a lot of fun and it can be done. In addition to
obedience, we have worked our dogs in agility and also dog carting. Our
at Home Champion dogs that have also earned their obedience titles are Ch. Timbersky's Brawn At Sondaisa CD, BISS Ch. Sondaisa's Roping the Wind CGC
CD ROM, Multi BISS Ch. Sondaisa's Snapshot ROM CGC CD. AM./CAN. AOM
Ch. Sondaisa Shiver Shot Stardust ROM CD. I gave up on
Chrome and his high energy although may try it again when he is
possibly a calm veteran. I have very interesting stories to
tell about our 1st and only AKC obedience competition together.
We purchased our first
Akita as a companion in 1988. Soon after that I began attending AKC Dog
Shows and got the bug.... So to speak. I was fortunate that my first show
dog was good to better quality, and although I resembled a lack of
coordination in the show ring, my dog won on her own merits.
We have come a long way
since then...To date we have bred 60 plus
champions! We have bred 7 Best in Show dogs at Akita
Specialties. National wins include 1 National Best In Show Specialty
winner, 4 Best Puppy In Show , 1 Winners Dog, 2 Winners Bitch, 2 Best Bred
By Exhibitor, 7 Award of Merits, 2 Reserve Winners Dogs, 1 Grand Futurity
Winner, 2 Best
Opposite Grand Futurity Winner, 1 Grand Maturity winner and Best In Breeders Cup. At All Breed
Shows and regional specialties our dogs are Multiple Group winning, Group
placing, multiple Best of Breed, and Best In sweeps winners. In 2003 and 2004, we
were honored to be the ONLY breeder/owners to have 3
dogs in the Top Twenty Akitas in the country.
We have bred 7 Register
of Merit dogs. This means that the females need to produce at
least 5 champions and the males need to produce at least 10. There
are also several ROM producers and 1 ROMX which is double what they are
required to produce for champions. They are:

The loyal friendships
that have developed through our dogs are many! One more reason to be
thankful to our breed, the Akita.
I need to mention how important it is to
not only obedience train your akita, but also to understand behavior.
Although the dogs at my home have good temperaments, as a breeder, my
dogs and I, are only the foundation of what your puppy will become.
Therefore, all dogs and puppies we place will be required to attain an
AKC Canine Citizenship Certificate.
