Ask Victoria – Akita doesn’t like strangers or being groomed
April 5, 2011
Karen from North Wales writes: We have a 22-month old Akita and he hates being groomed or bathed – he snaps and snarls. He is adorable in every other way at home but he’s not great with strangers – he bares his teeth if they want to pet him. He has never been hit (I know this as we have had him since a pup) but it is unnerving when out on walks when people he doesn’t know come toward him to say hello. Most people we have met have been dog owners and understand.
