Welcome to Diamond Akitas. We are a small kennel, established in 1993 and dedicated to producing Akitas who are not only beautiful to look at, but also sound of both body and mind. Temperament and trainability are foremost on our list of qualities we look for in our breeding stock.
What began as a fascination for this exceptional breed by the Diamond family and a love of obedience training by Angi Diamond, has since developed into a working partnership between Angi and handler Kim Holmes. Bringing to the table her 25 years of experience with Akitas, Kim has been guiding the breeding program at Diamond Akitas, carefully blending "tried and true" old pedigrees with a bit of the new. Our Diamond Akita bloodlines are based on such greats as Ch. Ashmen's Bronco Bill of Bruin, Ch. Koma-Inu Bronze Bruin, Ch. Raiden of Jo-Uba and Ch. Okii Yubi's Sachmo of Makoto.
We at Diamond Akitas often laugh about each of us having our own "departments" based on our particular strengths and abilities. Angi is our organizer and planner. She loves whelping litters and raising puppies and is the obedience trainer; her new love is the Rally Ring, where she recently put a Rally title on Ch. Dart, finishing at the Akita National Specialty 2007 with a score of 98. Kim's department is in the conformation show ring; she handles them to their championships, and occasionally dabbles in Agility. Kim and Ch. Desdemona qualified in Agility at the 2004 Nationals with a clean run and the fastest time of the day!
Whether you are interested in showing in confirmation, competing in Rally or Obedience, having fun with Agility, or just adding a new loving, four-legged member to your family, we hope you will consider a Diamond Akita. We are committed to helping you find just the right dog and to being your support system for the life of your Akita ~
