Akita breeders

Champions and companions that win your heart. Moonlight Akitas is a small Akita kennel established in 1991. Currently only the four Akitas pictured above reside at Moonlight; Queen is my housedog. I co-own many Akitas and those Akitas live with their owners throughout the United States and Mexico. This allows all my Akitas to be able to receive more one on one attention versus having many Akitas at my home.

I hope you enjoy your visit at Moonlight Akitas home on the web. You will find almost everything you will need to know about my Akitas on the site. I like to think that I have one of the most user friendly Akita sites on the web. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to send me an e-mail.

Remember that there are many wonderful adult Akitas in various Akita Rescue Organizations that make amazing companions.


Remember to ask for proof of health certifications hips (OFA), eyes (CERF) and thyroid results for the parents (if your buying a puppy) or the actual Akita if it is an adult. IF the breeder can not provide these items to you, than the Akita isn't worth as much (my opinion $300 or less) because you are taking a greater risk that the puppy

might develop one of these health problems.

Breeders can't eliminate these health problems in the Akita, but a conscientious breeder will try to reduce the risk of producing health diseases by testing the parents and only breeding the Akitas that are proven to be healthy, have a good temperament and are the better representatives of the breed.

This statement is made for two reasons:

1) To educate the public on the most common inheritable health diseases in the Akita

2) To make the public aware of what tests can be preformed on the parents to increase the chances of their Akita being a healthier dog.

Please note: A dog that has any of these health problems can sometimes lead a normal life that will bring the owner great satisfaction even though they might require medication or medical attention. However, some dogs that develop one of these diseases may cost the Owner lots of money to treat the disease or may result in the early death of the Akita. NO breeder can guarantee that the Akita that you acquire will not develop an inheritable disease; however, a reputable breeder will only place a puppy with a health guarantee.

It is the purchaser's responsibility to educate themselves on their dog's breeder and genetic history of the dog's parents.
