Welcome to Ritetype Akitas website. We are a family Show kennel with a love for the American Akita Breed and have owned Akitas for many years. Our first pet Akita came to us in 1995 and our love for the breed began. In 2001 we rescued a female Akita as a companion for our male. Although our pets have since passed on, they left us with a love, understanding and passion for the breed.

In 2006 we purchased our first Akita Show dog and that was the beginning of our love for the show scene.

All our dogs are fully health screened, eye certified Clear and BVA Hip scored ensuring that they are of sound health and thus promoting the breed in a positive way.

Our Aim at Ritetype Akitas is to stay true to the breed standard and we strive for Type, Temperament and Health thus ensuring the Breed Characteristics of the American Akita are preserved.

Please feel free to browse our site and look at our dogs…we hope you enjoy your visit.

We have now relocated to Co Meath, Ireland.
