Coat

Akitas have a double coat: the undercoat is soft and dense while the outer coat is hard and straight. The hairs on its tail are longer than the rest of its body. The color of Akitas can vary between fawn-red, brindle and white and all of these colorations (with the exception of totally white) have a white fuzz on the cheeks, neck, chest, torso and tail. Weekly brushing is very important to prevent excessive hair loss. In summer and spring, you need to brush it more often, as it can get tufts of dead hair stuck to its body.

Taking Care of a Akita Inu

It is essential that the Akita undergoes physical and mental exercise on a daily basis, with plenty of opportunity to practice longer runs. It is a breed that is happiest when it can spend time with its family. A brisk walk of at least 40 minutes a day alongside your human parents can be enough to maintain a healthy life. As we mentioned earlier, it is very important to be present in your Akita's growth phase, with regular visits to the veterinarian to always adjust your puppy's diet and prevent rapid growth from harming its health. The coat should be brushed quite often to remove dead hair.
