This is the story of a very small but very powerful dog. This is a dog that had gone to three different dog training boot camps and despite the best efforts of the trainers, Nanook was aggressive to people, the dogs in the home and even his owner. Nanook is so aggressive that his owner has not been able to ever hug him. That is all changed due to the Dog Training Chicago, an expert in aggressive dog rehabilitation.
Did you know that Huskies saved an entire town from death? When a diphtheria epidemic broke out in Nome, Alaska in 1925, the life saving serum was some 600 miles away and a dangerous trek for anyone during winter. The whole town was on the brink of death. Leonhard Seppala assembled a team of 20 sled dogs and headed towards the desperate town with the serum. After a 300-mile trek, through a blinding blizzard, one of the worse in history, the mission was turned over to another team, who completed the heroic mission and saved the town.
The leader of the sled team was Balto, a great Alaskan Husky. After the mission, Leonhard Seppala took a team of 40 dogs on a publicity tour throughout the mainland United States. Balto became one of the most famous dog figures in the world, and single handedly caused an upsurge in the breed’s popularity. Today, a statue of Balto sits in Central Park celebrating all the dogs involved.

They are extremely faithful and thrive on companionship. The Akita is very aggressive to other dogs and animals and should therefore never be allowed to run off its lead around other animals.
It should definitely be supervised with other household pets and children. Although the breed may tolerate and be good with children from his own family, he may not accept other children. If teased, Akita’s may bite. Children must be taught to treat these dogs with respect and compassion.
This breed can be very food-possessive and willful. They are capable of ferocity, but with firm training, can make a fine pet. Obedience training requires patience, as these dogs tend to get bored quickly.
