Although you cannot show a longcoat Akita
their temperament makes them an ideal family pet. They
tend to be larger boned and bigger generally than the
short coat Akita. They usually are less dominant and
more laid back than the short coat. A little extra care
is needed to keep their coats in good condition but
this can be used as your time with the dog and made
fun. Below are longcoat Akita's that have been proudly
bred by Danti Akitas.

Read what some longcoat owners have to say...
Owners of "Natuk": We purchased Natuk when he was about
11 weeks old and he was a big ball of fluff and even
to this day he is still a ball of fluff. He has a great
temperament with children and adults of all ages, and
evens lets our 18 month old granddaughter sit on his
back. He's always pleased to see you and shows it by
licking you to death. He is also very obedient on the
lead and loves nothing better than playing with our
other dog. If I had to some him up in a few words it
would be: Big, Cuddly, Lovable, Friendly, Loyal and
Danti Akitas are very professional breeders
and were extremely helpful and informative before during
and after the purchase of our longhaired Japanese Akita.
They are always at the other end of the phone if we
have any problems. Before we brought our dog home to
Scotland we were given a run down by Karen and Steven
on how to look after our Akita and even met some of
their dogs whom were all friendly and well looked after.
and we wouldn't hesitate in purchasing another Akita
from them in the future.
Owners of "Hachi": I had Hachi-Chan from my good friends
at Danti Akitas. He has turned into the most beautiful
dog and I am very grateful to them for letting me own
one of their stunning Akitas. Karen and Steve have been
on the end of the phone when ever I have needed advice.
Hachi-Chan is being obedience trained and came 5th out
of 22 at an obedience trial. His first one! When summer
arrives I will be trying to teach him Agility. He is
the most faithful friend to me and my protector. I look
after him and he looks after me.
Thanks to Danti for
giving me the best dog ever!
Love, Karen Chazer.
Owners of "Hoshi": Hoshi goes to 'puppy training' every
Tuesday evening. She is not quite the youngest in the
class but just about the biggest. She will sit and shake
paws, wait when asked to i.e. for food or to have pictures
take, lay down and wait for her food. Play fetch with
a ball or other small container for hours. At a later
stage she will do agility as this will keep her socialised
with other dogs. She is going in for a degree in digging
l am expecting a pass with first class honors!!! She
travels really well and knows that once the car starts
she is expected to lie down and not move until the car
