Hi from another newbie. I am sorry I cannot help but I am sure someone will come to your aid. Good luck. 3 Akitas will be quite a handful.

Hello and welcome to the forum. If they are all neutered it might help. Not many same sex Akitas will tolorate each other. Two is company three is a pack

Hi & welcome...are any of the boys had the chop??....I should imagine Roman has taken an alpha position in the family,(unless Annie's the boss!!), which could cause you problems, introducing Vito into the pack....might go ok...I'm not an expert on behaviour, but Kate & Pauline can give you sound advice on this prob...they say the same sex dogs don't get along, but I've never had a problem ...all mine, my sons & my daughter same sex dogs all get on well together....also depends on the dogs temperment too....hope you get the advice you need & all goes well....why is Vito coming back to you??....keep in touch & let us know how things are going......Pam Maya & Scoobie

You may have a problem as you'll have 2 adolescent males in the house of potentially similar temperaments. It's quite likely that they'll be fine to start with and you'll have problems in a couple of months when they've settled in. Then there's likely to be another 'sticky' time when the boys reach around 20 months and there's another surge of hormones than can cause fights (this is much reduced if they're neutered well before then).

My advice would be to introduce slowly, make sure you have the facility to keep them separate and ensure that they have individual training times as well as group training.

Good luck!
