Pembroke Welsh Corgi:
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are whimsical creatures
(known as the "Pixie Steed" in many
storybooks and fables) but they also harness a
great "work ethic". If trained
properly, they can be a wonderful all around
ranch hand and they are quite willing to
either assist in the movement of livestock or
be a tireless companion in child's play.
Pembroke Corgi can be a sensitive listener
they also come in a compact and tough little
little canines are a wonderful, loving
addition to any family and they will
immediately blend in with their surroundings
... all the while causing their people
to wonder how they ever got along without
"CAT" in the dog suit.
quite the cartoon characters of the dog
world. They are extremely clever and
while they can sometimes be a bit stubborn
about trivial tricks, they learn very
quickly. Some will greet their families
at the door with a chortle or song while
others will bring an offering of their
favorite toy. Shibas are very "cat
like" and can even be litter box trained.
also acclimate nicely with any cats in their
household, as long as they are raised with
them and are never allowed the game of
"chase the cat".
Shibas are a
hunting breed so mind the leash laws in your
city as a "stray" cat or squirrel could cause a temptation
too great to resist. Shibas are considered to be one of the smaller breeds yet
they are not yappy dogs. The Shiba is
also a very talented watch dog. If a
Shiba is barking GO LOOK as there will most
likely be a very good reason. If an
intruder does not heed the warning barks of a
Shiba defending it's household they'd better
watch their ankles!
has been said that Shibas are direct descendants
of the Wild Dingo, whose genetic
heritage has been traced all the
way back to Asia. Go online and See,
the "Dingo Discovery" site for
pictures of wild Dingoes and
amazing proof of this theory.
a very hardy and tough little breed. They, like the Akita,
towards all other dogs of the same sex and will
not back down to a presumed opponent no
matter that it may be twice its size. This
means that you can have as many dogs in your
household as you wish but... they'd better all
be of the opposite sex of your Shiba.
OFF LEASH, DOG FACILITIES WITH
THE SHIBA BREED PLEASE!!!!
The Akita Inu:
is a no nonsense breed and requires zero guard
dog training. Centuries of breeding has
done all that for you. Meeting a
properly trained Akita is a mesmerizing
experience to behold. They are an absolutely
beautiful breed and are quite majestic....even
as puppies. They are also a very loyal and a natural family
companion and guardian. What is
required with this breed is socialization galore!
If you or someone in
your family does not have the
time for daily socialization and or walks, with
your new Akita puppy/ dog, (Once all their
shot series are completed), you may want to
reconsider and get a home alarm system
instead. Canines are social animals and
so without proper socialization
and training , this breed can grow up to be a
liability. Proper socialization and
early training is of the utmost
importance. You will get back whatever
you put in "Ten Fold". One
cannot expect a "Lassie" to
evolve out of a dog that has been isolated in
dealing with a breed that will be close to or
in excess of 100 pounds, as an adult, it is
imperative to teach your dog, early on, to trust
people and to make certain that it is taught proper house and public etiquette.
can never be too friendly to protect you.
choosing a breed to suit your needs, please be
aware that the Akita is dog
aggressive towards ALL other canines of the same
gender. Therefore, should you already have a
canine in your household make sure that your
Akita is of the opposite sex.
OFF LEASH, DOG FACILITIES WITH
THE AKITA BREED PLEASE!
All in all
either of these two guardian breeds are a wonderful
choice for any family looking for a "dual
companion and guardian.
