Welcome to Nutmeg Akitas ~ We are Marc and Lonny Cohen, located in beautiful central Connecticut.
.
We fell in love with the Akita breed in 1982, when we purchased our first Akita, Anjin.   Although he was not a show quality dog, his breeder, Mary Echols-Keen, was happy to mentor us and gave us lots of helpful advice over the years.  We purchased a show quality female the following year, and Redmans Orange Colored Sky, our Mikki, became a Register of Merit producer, being the dam of 5 champions, including her daughter, who was also a Register of Merit producer.
.
We strive for the perfect American Akita in type, soundness, and temperament. We do all required health checks, including hip x-rays and eye certification. We carefully select each parent of every litter, always with improvement in mind.  Through careful line breeding with judicious outcrosses, we feel we have set a specific look in our dogs, which has continued from generation to generation.  Selected puppies are kept by ourselves to show and continue our line with, and the remainder of the litter are sold to screened companion homes.  We will occasionally sell a promising pup to a qualified show home, although that is never our reason for doing a specific breeding.
.
Over the past 20+ years, we have produced many champions, and multiple Best of Breed winners.  One of our bitches was the first Akita bitch to win an Award of Merit at the Westminster Kennel Club show.  We have expanded our interest into many club activities, including serving as officers of the Akita Club of America, Inc., and the Farmington Valley Kennel Club.  Both Marc and myself are also AKC judges.

But enough about us!  It's the dogs you want to see, so follow the links below and take a tour through the past 20 years of Nutmeg Akitas.  We hope you enjoy the trip.
