The Akita is considered an energetic dog and thus your Akita could benefit from a high-protein dog food due to that simple fact alone. A dog food rich in high-protein helps to build muscle and support the energy levels of an energetic Akita. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by an energetic dog like the Akita. In fact, dogs that don't receive enough protein can actually experience muscle loss and see a noticeable drop in energy levels. Lastly, a high-protein dog food that's optimal for the Akita is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for an energetic Akita.


The Akita is a massive, tall dog weighing in at over 100 pounds. Dogs of this size could benefit from a well-rounded diet that have all the necessary nutrients for their massive frame.
