Fifteen year old, almost sixteen. what do you think about me owning an akita?
like i said im fifteen almost sixteen, and im home schooled. i dont have many friends, and i dont intend to go to college. im going to become a dog behaviorist. ive talked extensively about what type of dog i should get with my mom, and what she would be comfortable with. she said that it dosent really matter to her, and she trusts me with an aggressive/primitive breed. so here i am. im looking into akitas, and the more i read, the more i like them.
i know my world will have to revolve around this dog, but i dont have many friends, and im not going to college. and the job i want has to do with dogs.
AND i know i asked a question similar to this, but that was late at night. and i think i can get more answers now. please dont complain about me posting it again, because its already been done. and i want more opinions.
so, what do you think?
oh, and some people were making comments about how i should wait until i can physically control it. well, im 6.4, work out every day, and do extensive martial arts training (krav maga) and i can over power most grown men, so thats not a problem.
im doing extensive research on them, and im reading a 1500 page book on dog psychology right now.
and, if you think its a bad idea, perhaps you can suggest another breed for me? i want a larger breed, who would be willing to protect my property if need
(why cant i protect my own property?) i can, but i would like to know theres someone with me.
thanks so much for your advice
(lol it suggested i put this in the finance area)
