In this video, we are counting down the top 10 facts about the Akbash that you might not know.
A Quick Overview: Group: Working Dogs Weight: 75 to 140 pounds Height: 27 to 34 inches tall at the shoulder Life Expectancy: 10 to 12 years
The Akbash is a gentle dog who is very protective of their family. They're independent and like to have their own space from time to time. Originally bred to protect flocks of livestock, they still have those strong guard instincts today.
These pups are highly intelligent and, though they don't have explosive energy, are quite agile and strong if they sense danger and need to act. If they sense anything amiss, they will growl or bark at strangers, but they are not overly aggressive towards them. If you want a watchdog and guardian who will alert you to anyone who might approach your door, you can’t do much better than the Akbash.
This dog needs a strong and consistent owner who can also be sensitive to their needs when training. They can be easily trained, but make sure to socialize them early to other dogs or pets who they might live with in the house. Because they are independent, they usually don't have any separation anxiety with their human counterparts. Make sure to give them some space, as they like to be on their own once and a while.
