I am a single female and considering getting another dog as a companion for my current dog. I am interested in getting either a Doberman or an Akita, but I'm not sure which breed would be a better fit for my situation.
My current dog is a female German Shepherd who is well-trained and gets along with other dogs. However, she is not particularly playful and tends to be more reserved.
I am looking for a breed that is affectionate, loyal, and protective. I want a dog that can be trained easily and will get along well with my current dog as well as any future pets I may get.
I have a fairly active lifestyle and would be able to provide plenty of exercise for the dog, including regular walks and trips to the dog park.
So, based on my situation, do you think a Doberman or an Akita would be a better choice? I would love to hear from anyone who has experience with either of these breeds. Thank you in advance for your advice!
