She is 15 months old. I just adopted her two months ago with no prior training.
I have taught her to sit, stay, and come.. though the come's success rate is only like, 50 percent.
so, how to do it with an akita? I have a big open 5 acres and can i trust her to stay on the property if she gets trained? how? my blue heeler mix stays right on the property and wouldnt DARE leave. he was trained before though.
As an Akita owner I will tell you that this is a breed that I do not let off leash, except in very controlled situation- like an exceptionally well trained Obedience dog doing off leash healing in competion, and only after being compltely proofed.
Akitas as a breed are known to be extremely animal aggressive. The last thing you need is to have her get away and harm another persons pet. Also, after only two months and no prior training, there is no way this dog can even begin to be reliable.
An Akita is not a "farm dog" that can be trusted to just hang out and not get into trouble.
I love this breed, but understand the limits of them.
I live on a horse ranch, and my Akita is only out on a leash when not in his fenced yard.
