Response to First Akita clergy (service dog)
Only service dogs are to wear that specific red harness.
Manidou Nodin Akitas (Spirit Wind) plan is specifically to target older wo/men that desire an Akita guardian for companionship but are fearful of orphaning their Akita.
I have been designing the kennel’s operation and contract with a home at our kennel for each Akita and a clause where when the owner can no longer care for the Akita, that the Akita will return to the kennel (of course there are exceptions written in). This provides the assurance that the Akita will not be orphaned and placed in rescue.
It is our intention for our kennel to specifically provide an Akita trained to assist a widow who wishes to remain in her house. Tasks will vary according to client needs; an example is bringing a 911 caller to the owner or actually setting it off at the owner’s command.
