We believe it is possible to have it all. We breed with an emphasis on the total dog. Our dogs successfully compete in multiple activities...agility, rally, obedience, conformation, lure coursing, straight racing and oval track racing, and of course the most important job of all...being great family companions.
I first met Mike & Donna a little over 8 years ago, and got Kita, my female Akita who has been the most amazing best friend, family member and sister to her kids. In January, we got Koda, a male Akita that is now almost 4 months old. I cannot imagine our life or family without them both and could not be happier with Liberty Akitas. True love of the breed is an understatement. Thank you could never be enough.
When Paul and I decided that we wanted an Akita for our first puppy together, we scoured the internet and made dozens of phone calls to various breeders throughout the United States. We wanted to find someone who not only loved the breed, but who took all of the precautions against hereditary diseases and who would do all the appropriate testing on their dogs. We were THRILLED to find Mike & Donna Bennett. They have an obvious and fierce love for the breed, are incredibly kind and patient, and were willing to answer every single one of our questions with grace and honesty. They are still available when we have questions, and are quick to respond to emails and texts. When we got Paddington at 8 weeks old (now 7.5 months old), he had been extremely well socialized, and had been introduced to many different kinds of toys and environments outside. To this day, he LOVES meeting new people, and is a very happy puppy in general. I would highly recommend the Bennetts to anyone looking for an akita or a whippet. We are so thankful that we found Liberty Akitas, and are forever grateful for our precious Paddington!
We found Liberty Akitas over10 years ago and they go above and beyond to honor their puppy contracts. We have been so pleased with our Akitas, I cannot imagine getting one from anyone else.
