We've had our 11 week old Akita for a week now and already can't imagine life without him! In about a week from now, we will be bringing him with us to visit family with small children. He loves kids (his breeder had kids around the puppies constantly) and is being well socialized. We are working hard to get him to stop biting when he's excited and playing but we're not having a lot of luck yet. Perhaps I am expecting results too fast? Just wondering if anyone has any tips. Thanks for any advice!
