I did that with our Rose. It helped in the car bringing her home. As soon as we got home she acted like she knew where everything was as if she was born here.
I would suggest a towel with your new puppy's scent for your Akita dog. If she can start smelling her now she may be more accustomed to her when you do bring her home. I don't know how far the breeder is but I would take a towel and wrap the puppy in it, maybe let the puppy play with it, rub it all over him/her. Then leave another towel behind to get the mother and the litter mates scent.
