Akita Pit requires training from an early age. Consistency in the training pattern is the key. They are easy to train as they learn the command quickly. Behavior training is critical for this breed. The bad habits of the puppy get corrected and prevented in the future through behavior training. The trainer should not get impatient. There is a requirement of repetition of commands.
