I am all for the philosophy of “it’s a problem if it is causing a problem,” and once you take two dogs that are not in kennels and separate them and put them in kennels, it is a step backward from a LIMA perspective, and can possibly cause behavior problems that are not there. But, I agree ideally, the dogs are not necessarily left completely unsupervised together if they are a reasonably new pairing.
Without further information, it is hard to know the exact nature of the relationship between the current dogs, but it should be noted that Akitas also are not necessarily high on the list for dogs that are dog visitor friendly as well.
Fortunately, a good plan that includes understanding dog dynamics, resources, etc… to manage potential issues with visitor dogs would also work as a preventative to deal with possible future issues between two female dogs living together.
