Beautiful dog. I’ve always been impressed by their strength and their dignity, but friendliness is not one of their strength.

I have a policy, if a dog comes and sniff my dog/chicken:

  1. They have to be calm and composed.
  2. Before the sniff, I have to pet them to assess their calmness.

Sometimes, they are not happy that they first have to deal with me first. This Akita was not happy, but eventually he put up with my rules.
