-promote the American Akita and the Akita Inu
-maintain the Breeds in accordance with the Standard’s approved by the Irish Kennel Club
-achieve these aims through the offer of prizes and promotion of Shows, Matches, Lectures, Social Events and other means.
The Association was originally set up in March 2011 with an open invitation to experienced show kennels of both breeds to provide input and knowledge.
The club also welcomes and encourages those who have Akita’s as pets or who simply have an interest in the breed to join as Associate members

It has come to the attention of the club that some unscrupulous dog breeders are advertising pups for sale and indicating that they are members of this club or another Akita Club in Ireland. To clarify the situation anyone seeking to purchase a pup having been told that the seller is a member of this club should confirm this information with the club membership secretary before committing to the purchase.
Please be aware that there is only one club in Ireland for the American Akita and Akita Inu.
