Welcome to Stargate Akitas where our love and involvement with dogs has spanned a lifetime.  While showing our Golden Retriever one summer, we were transfixed by this dog that was passing across the show grounds in front of us.  Handing my dog off to my husband, I quickly caught up with the dog’s handler and inquired about him.  The rest is history.  We purchased our first companion Akita in 1995 and have been head over heels in love with the breed ever since.
Akitas are truly an amazing breed and we can’t imagine our lives without them in it.  Through the past 20 years our passion for, and knowledge of, the breed has deepened.  We are committed to do our part to help preserve and protect this “Treasure of Japan”, by being ethical and responsible breeders, educating our puppy buyers, supporting rescue groups and promoting responsible dog ownership.

Although we don't breed very often, when we do decide to have a litter, it involves a lot of research and planning with definite goals in mind.  Because the Akita is a big and powerful dog, we feel that it is our responsibility to the Akita breed and to our potential puppy owners, to make sure that the dogs we use in our breeding program meet all our requirements before being used.  We like our dogs to be champions of record, must pass all health clearances and must have outstanding temperaments. When doing a breeding, our intentions are to improve and enhance the breed, along with producing healthy, sound, quality dogs.  Our puppies are raised in our own home where they receive endless love and attention.  Whether you are purchasing a potential show dog or a family companion from us, be prepared to jump through a few hoops.  We expect that our puppies’ new owners provide them with the equal level of love and care that they are raised under and treasure them for their lifetime.
We hope you enjoy your visit with us. Please feel free to email us with any questions you may have.
