The Akita originated in northern Japan and as a result it has a very luxurious, thick double coat. In a warm climate or in your case, a hot climate, the coat will shed profusely, but the dog may still be uncomfortable even indoors. You may want to consider this when choosing an Akita.
Remember that some breeds are more suitable than others depending on your lifestyle and your climate. There are a number of breeds that I would love to live with, but my allergies limit me, so I have to enjoy them from a distance.
If a move to a cooler climate is in your future, maybe that would be a time to have an Akita in your life.
Be sure to check out our own Breed Directory for suitable hot weather breeds. The breeds that are good in hot climates will have a picture of a sun.
