    Dog Training Forum
    So my dog, Bear, is a big girl who has recently started chewing holes in her paws because she's overly bored. She doesn't even play with toys. I feel so bad for her, I try to take her out as much as possible, but she is very powerful and will lunge for any dog that she sees. Plus when she's on...

    Kuma stole my glove after the snow storm and he wouldn't give it back. He kept running around and got snow in it. Eventually didn't want it back since it was full of snow. Thanks Kuma http://www.youtube.com/user/akitadog24?feature=mhee

    What are your opinion on the three dogs that I listed in the title? Are they good dogs to own? I own an Akita at the moment and a hound mix, and have owned other dogs before this one.

    General Dog Forum
    Does anyone's Akita groan when he's real happy to see someone. Mine sounds like hes doing this deep growl thing, and he always needs a toy in his mouth. I've been trying to get it on film but I haven't had the time.

    General Dog Forum
    Long way around to a question but... first some background. The first of May we 'adopted' Dru our Son's 15 month old Akita. His work schedule and living arrangements meant Dru spent WAY too much time crated or at day care. Not enough exercise and this lead to some destructive habits. He is...

  19. From 'No More Dogs' to adopting a 'Big Lug'

    General Dog Forum
    Last August we said good-bye to our 11 year old Shar-pei Wu. This was the first time we had been a one dog house in 30+ years and the silence, for me, was deafening. My partner had had enough and decided 'No more dogs'. I thought that once the grief lessened we would once again go looking for a...
