UKC (United Kennel Club): One step closer to split!


, , , , ,

Effective January 1st, 2013, Japanese Akita will be recognized as its own breed at the United Kennel Club.

AKIHO, LA branch has always been supportive of JACA (Japanese Akita Club of America) and we would like to congratulate everyone who has been involved in this effort to get closer to split Japanese Akita from One Akita in US.

Guess who got published in a magazine???


, , , , , ,

As a member of AKIHO, one of the benefits that you receive is a club magazine from Japan.  Every 2-3 months, the headquarter in Japan publishes a magazine that covers club meeting agenda, club information, events, etc.

As a non-speaking Japanese member, it will be difficult to find out what it say… but you do get to view great photos of Japanese Akitas.

This current edition, six of our LA branch akitas were featured.  This magazine gets distributed to all members around the world.

Isn’t this great or what? We are very pleased.  Can’t wait til 2013 for another show.
