The akita is one of the hardest dog breeds to control ever! They can weigh about 115 pounds, sometimes even more. They are tough and huge and need a lot of exercise every single day.
These aggressive pooches must have firm control on the leash else they will go after small animals or other dogs. Although this dog is unsuitable for a lot of people seeking a new pet, they pose the type of challenge which an experienced dog owner might find rewarding.
