Over 10 years ago, a group of Italian breeders, who were involved in the development of the Akita breed in Europe, decided to organize a meeting with the Japanese experts of this unique race and they succeeded!
The Italian initiative has spread rapidly and always with increasing results and the Akita Cup is attended by breeders and enthusiasts from all over Europe. The meetings are an opportunity for the exchange of breeding experiences, talks and conferences, and the evaluation of dogs by expert Japanese judges.
