    I got Dobe, Neo, and mastiff, not the Pin though. Only one of those breeds would've suited.... the dobe.

    Well you got alot of mastiff sized dogs & 1 mastiff, lol.............
    Akita's are an interesting breed that I'd like to learn more about but from what I do know they can be very aloof & territoral like alot of the larger Asain breeds I guess.

    I adore the look of the Akita. They are the most beautiful dog, I'd love to own one.

    So not such a good outcome for you then...
    I pressed the Why link on the choises & was surpriced by some of the answers.
    I also looked further down the page just now & there is a list for what breeds you should not have & TM was on it for me, lol.
    When I got my first TM as soon as our bond was formed I knew I'd never live without 1 & that this was the type of dog I'd been searching for.

    Yes Akita's diffently have a presence about them & have a strong protectful air about them.
    TM's are often described as aloof & territorial also & I wonder if these are the only simalarities with their personalities.
    I can tell they have strong minds & like to make decisions for themself much like TM's which can be a challange untill you learn how to work with it & therefore be able to get any training done but that said I would not change them 1 bit & enjoy the way they see things alittle diffrently than most other breeds of dogs.

    Myf, my best friend's first dog was a Husky -- she is 18 and now has 3 It's all about consistency and training, which a beginner owner can provide. They are independent, yes, but they are also easy to train if you have the right approach (for the individual dog, of course).

    To the OP, they do cope okay with heat. Their coat insulates and cools them down - they don't need to be clipped!

    It just depends on whether the first time owner has done their research and has people on hand to give them a hand.

    Maybe the anatolian shepherd is a good dog for everyone. Or they bought off the test programmers. Or there's an error. I used to work on a database that sorted people by their "first language", there was nothing for people whose first language was an aboriginal one - and these people do exist. And by some combination of faulty coding, it put a lot of people into the "Arabic" language category instead of "other". Oops.

    What makes that test interesting - isn't really the dogs it recommends and the bigger list will have about 40 dogs on it - that it recommends, and about 40 that it says would not suit - anyway it's WHY it says these dogs would suit.
