Dog lovers will have no problems knowing the difference between Akita and Husky, but just in case you would like to know more about these two dog breeds, then keep on reading. An Akita is a dog that is very large. In fact, the Akita can grow even larger than the Husky.

The Akita will be tall at 24 to 26 inches, while the Husky will be a bit smaller at 20 to 23 1/2 inches. The weight of these two dogs is considered to be very heavy, especially when compared to other dog breeds.

Male Akitas can even reach up to 119 pounds, which means that they can be as heavy as human beings. Husky is considered to be a family dog and can work well with human beings, but the Akita might not be that domesticated to actually enjoy human company.
