Hi,my husband and I are adopting a Japanese Akita named Tia on saturday. She is 3 years old and we have met her a few times now,she seems to have a lovely temperment,having been bought up around 4 young children and cats. Tia is very well behaved and gentle.
However,does anybody have any advice on how to help her adapt to her new home and us as her new owners?Has anyone ever had any problems in the same situation as us?We are planning to take her on a long walk after she first arrives so that she will have used up any nervous energy and be calm in her new environment,is this a good idea?
Sorry for the novel,any advoce is appreciated!
