Haha! Yeah. His name is Hachi but we named him after the number 8. Never thought about the famous akita until after.
They are a very sensitive noise maker.All I ask out of my “guard” dog is to alert me when someone/anyone comes to my house, and our wiener dog fills the bill nicely and doesn’t eat much. I’m convinced she can hear a fly fart...
Maybe not good guard dogs, but this statement below is pretty much the definition of a watch dog.I have three Siberian Huskies.... Anyone who understands Siberian Huskies, knows they make terrible watch dogs.
They are alerting you to a potential threat (OK, we know it's just the mail man, UPS guy, kid walking to school, trash truck, neighbor mowing the lawn, ...), but you still love them.Whenever anyone approaches the house, they begin to howl like a pack of wolves.
