The first sentence of our American Kennel Club Akita
states, "Large, powerful, alert, with much substance and heavy
bone." Obviously this sentence alone holds much importance in the
total standard. This is why we try continuously to never lose sight
of the American Akita Standard.
The head should be broad, forming a blunt triangle. In fact, the
entire head itself should be a symphony of triangles. The head
should be "massive", but in balance with the body and free of
wrinkle. The ears are characteristic of the breed and should be
small in comparison to the head... They should be thick, erect, and
triangular in shape. The Akita was bred for great strength, and a
resounding durable, sturdy body, suitable for hunting in mountainous
terrain. This information is imperative to our breeding program.
