Here you will find our planned mating's along with available adults/puppies. We strive to only breed when we feel the pairing will positively contribute to the breed as a whole. All of our breeding’s are carefully planned with our focus on the overall health, temperament, and conformation of all of our Japanese Akitainu.
Please contact us for any enquiries and we will be glad to help. We are actively involved in the Japanese Akitainu community both in North America and worldwide so we will be happy to recommend reputable breeders if Yakumo Sou have no puppies available at the time of your enquiry.
Please exercise caution while researching for a potential puppy to join your family. Recent AKC breed recognition has seen a considerable surge in popularity which has led to irresponsible and inexperienced breeders who do not prioritize health, temperament, and breed type.
People keeping the breed to themselves and scaring good people off is known as 'Toxic gatekeeping' and it is occurring in this breed community. Anyone who truly has the breeds best interests at heart will take pleasure in seeing them develop and thrive. Take advice from people who actually own the breed for a long time and who have not become historians or breeders overnight.
All good breeder's health test their dogs and will never breed a bad temperament. Overly shy or overly aggressive are disqualifying faults in our breed standard and those dogs should never be bred. Please exercise caution on social media groups where you will find an abundance of opinions from people who are not experienced enough to give them.
Please ask for OFA health certificates and always meet the parents of your puppy. Even breeders who seem well established can be lacking in knowledge or pretending to have morals. Do not expect to get a puppy immediately and respect the breeders who have waiting lists. They have them for a reason. We are here to help and part of that is us protecting and preserving this breed by ensuring newcomers get in contact with reputable breeders.
