They’re white, they’re beautiful, and they are quick to think for themselves. Akbash puppies for adoption first originated in Turkey with the purpose of guarding livestock. They are quick on their feet and sure to protect against unwanted predators. Today the Akbash has slowly morphed into a companion dog for people across the United States. As members of the large dog breed family, Akbash canines are often exceptional family dogs. They’ll prove calm and gentle around little family members while creating lots of exciting playtime with the older children.
Don’t be fooled.
True to their title as a working dog breed, the Akbash requires daily exercise and mental stimulation. You might start with a daily walk interspersed with games of Frisbee in the back yard, a run through the park, or a visit to your local dog park. A maturing Akbash loves a job to complete and will thrive on working in tandem with their humans.
In addition, expect to spend lots of time training your growing dog. An Akbash puppy will be in no hurry to mature and can take two to three years to reach adulthood. During these critical years, it is essential to be kind, firm and consistent in your training. Keep training sessions fun by utilizing lots of positive praise, favorite doggy toys, and delicious puppy treats.
A beautiful, mature Akbash doesn’t happen overnight. While their protective natures are attractive, it takes lots of intentional doggy time to guide an Akbash into full adulthood. When your Akbash is still young, socialize your little pupper often to new sights, sounds and smells. Browse outdoor shopping malls together, invite guests into your home and enjoy window shopping downtown to prepare your Akbash for the ropes of life.
You can take your pick when browsing coat lengths on an Akbash. While some carry short to medium length coats, other coats are long with a ruff around the neck and feathering on the legs and tail. Not to mention, an Akbash sheds only moderately.
