Hi there, my boyfriend & I have been thinking about getting an akita for some time now and are looking for advice. Firstly I myself have never owned a dog, my boyfriend has previously before me. (German Shepherd) We have been researching Akitas for over a year now and we know that akitas will require a lot of time and effort more than your average dog, and were willing to put that effort in. However we dont live together yet so Im just worried our dog will get more attached to my boyfriend and not be as comfortable around me when we do eventually move in together? Is this trainable? And can we train our Akita to be playful and family friendly if around a lot of kids when its a puppy? Would prefer advice from someone with an akita that has had similar experiences.
