Akita Breeder - Dogs - Launceston, TAS : Perfect Pets Profile

We are a small Kennel located in the Tamar Valley 10 kms North of Beaconsfield. I have been involved with dogs since my later teen years when participating in both obedience & agility whilst residing in Sydney it was here I then began to show dogs after purchasing a GSD in the early 90's. In the mid 90's I then became involved further in the showing & Breeding GSD's under the Elray prefix in WA.

From here I moved in 2000 with my dogs to Tassie & decided to get an Akita (a challenge I thought) as Akitas are Known for their strong will & I don't want to listen attitude the rest is history, we have had both sucess in the show ring & in obedience & all our dogs are socialised with other dogs & children. We believe the Akita is a magestic breed that need to be preserved & admired.

Please Read before you decide to get an AKITA
Akita's are not for everyone they require a lot of time, patience & an owner that is firm & fair someone who willing to put in the time & energy to make their pup the best he/she can be.

An Akita may not suit first time dog owner for the reasons above but in the RIGHT hands can & will make an exceptional & loyal companion .

Before embarking an the Akita journey ask yourself if this dog will fit into your life in 10yrs time as most will live beyond this.

Also take into consideration if a puppy is right for you or if you may be suited to an adult. Retired show dogs & retired breeding dogs are sometimes a great introduction to the breed & responsible breeders will de-sex before re-homing saving you the cost of such, meet the dog prior to taking him/her home to ensure compatibility if able.

Most important of all de-sex & if you find your self unable to care for your pup/dog make sure the breeder is prepared to take the dog back for re-homing.

If not, think twice before you purchase as breeders that will not take responsibility for what they breed should not be breeding in the first instance.
