Akita Club of Puget Sound (ACPS) was
established in 1975 by a group of Akita enthusiasts
who were focused on promoting the improvement of health,
temperament, structure and soundness in the breeding
and raising of purebred Akitas. An independent
Akita Club, the ACPS was recognized by the American
Kennel Club in 1988, and incorporated by the State
of Washington in 1990. Our membership consists
of Akita breeders and owners, and all have a deep love
and commitment to the breed.
members believe in doing all we can to protect and
advance the best attributes of the Akita. We
participate in public education, local events and
activities that will assist Akita owners and the general
public in understanding and enjoying the breed.
In addition, the ACPS holds an Independent
Akita Specialty Show each year on the third Friday
in August, where Akita breeders and owners come to
showcase some of the best Akitas from all around the
United States and Canada. The ACPS membership
also supports the
Washington Akita Group, an Akita rescue organization
located in the northwest.
Akita Club of Puget Sound is a 501(c)3 organization,

and rescue. Please note the PayPal button on
