I have a chance to get an 18 month old male Akita, I don't believe it has been socialized with other animals. The owner claims it doesn't like male dogs or cats but she really hasn't taken the time to try to socialize him. I have a 3yr old Siberian Husky, male who is docile with all other male dogs and my cats, which is the other thing, I have 3 cats who have always lived with dogs. I have always trained many different breeds and never had any problems. Am I looking at an impossible situation? By the way, I'm home all day & can spend all the time I need with the animals.

Ive had 3 akita dogs. I wouldnt recommend getting it if you have other pets. I used to let my second one play with other dogs when he was still a pup and he was fine till he got to around 6 months old and started getting aggressive towards the other dogs

The reason your akita is aggressive to other dogs is because you are not showing that your the dominant when there is other dogs and they will be calm around other dogs.

I recently got a female 4 mos old, and she is too big and rough with our older male dog. Have to keep them seperated. Also I have had a difficult time d/t previous owner abusing/ not training/ and not loving this puppie! It is hard work especially d/t the nature of the dog.
