The Labrakita is a mix of the Labrador Retriever and the Akita. This mix has produced an energetic dog and a great companion. The Labrakita craves their owner's attention and can be destructive if left alone for too long. Powerful jaws can munch through pretty much anything, and an insatiable curiosity can lead to mischief. The secret to keeping this dog on the level is to provide plenty of activities for them to do. Socializing is essential, especially if your dog takes after the Akita side of the family. They need to mix with people to become confident. Take your dog on long walks, visits to see people, or trips to the markets, so they get used to crowds. Enroll them in obedience classes, agility courses, and anything to do with a hunting type of activity. Devoted and loyal, your Labrakita is a unique and special companion.
Water games can be an ideal way to entertain your dog, or if it is winter, train them to pull a sled, and they will enjoy every minute of it. The Labrakita is an intelligent dog, so test their skills with a homemade agility course using boxes as jumps, or hula-hoops for your dog to jump through. Teach your dog to wear a backpack and they can help you carry some of the groceries. Your Labrakita makes an idea jogging or hiking companion, but do keep them on a leash as they have a high prey drive and may take off after a squirrel! Train their brain, exercise them well, and you will have a dog who will be content to settle down at night with you and snuggle. If your dog has your attention, they will be one happy dog.
