All breeds: List of dog breeds

The American Akita (FCI 344). It conforms to the "Akita" breed standard that is still used by the American Kennel Club (AKC), United Kennel Club (UKC), Canadian Kennel Club (CKC), and possibly other non-FCI kennels. Kennel Clubs that list the "Great Japanese Dog" as a separate breed will subsequently list the "Akita" breed standard as conforming to the more recently defined Japan Kennel Club (and AKIHO) breed standard.
