Sherry's article on Akita
Temperament was first published in installments in several issues of
the ACA quarterly newsletter, Akita Dog. It is so popular,
it has been reprinted in Hoflin Publication's Akita World magazine
and has since been reprinted in many rescue handouts, breed information
packets, and on many websites in many countries.
It is quite long, so it's broken into several pages. You can
access them by topic from the Introduction page and by page from the
main menu above. There is also a printer
friendly version for download.
||The original AKITA TEMPERAMENT article
generated so many inquiries, that Sherry followed it up with an additional
article, available here in two parts. The first discusses dog aggression,
it's levels, causes, and some suggestions for dealing with it. The
second section continues this discussion and outlines
"Leading the Dance," a non-confrontational protocol for dealing
with difficult or new dogs to establish their place in the household
A printer friendly version
is available for download
||SPOTS BEFORE YOUR EYES is
a PDF file. Like many breeds, Akitas have white markings to varying
degrees. In this article, Sherry discusses the genetics that govern
the distribution of color with illustrations of how the spotting genes
express themselves in markings.
||A friend called and asked
Sherry to write something about Akita nose and coat color because of
an experience she had in the ring.This is an area of great confusion
to judges and breeders which is thoroughly discussed and illustrated
in PANDORA'S BOX OF NOSES. The entire PDF
available for high speed download. Slower connections can download it
in sections from this page.
