Junketsu Japanese Akitas

We are two people who are crazy about Japanese Akitas.  Steven is the president of Akitainu Hozonkai (AKIHO) Los Angeles Branch.  Judy is vice-president of Japanese Akita Club of America (JACA).  All our dogs, champions and pets, old and young, are loved and spoiled equally.  We believe in the split of American Akita and Japanese Akita to keep each breed 100% pure to each standard.  We do health certs and only breed award-winning dogs with AKIHO/JACA/UKC registration and pedigrees.  Find us on our Facebook or check out our website

Taiheiyo-Kensha Japanese Akitas (Please note: We’re taking a break from breeding)

Our purebred Japanese Akita litters all come from AKIHO pedigree stock and conform to AKIHO, JKC, FCI and UKC standards.  Although we view conformation and temperament as important, we first and foremost want all of our puppies to go to loving homes with a safe and healthy environment to live out their lives, regardless of whether a pup is show or pet quality.  To that end, we stand by our litters and only breed adult dogs who have been health tested.  We are also happy to offer guidance to our buyers to give their new family members the best start possible.
