Advice for owners of dogs of potentially aggressive breeds

The main breeds are:

  • Pitt Bull
  • Boerbull
  • Bandog
  • American Staffordshire Terrie (AmStaff)
  • Tosa
  • Rotweiller
  • Argentinian Dog
  • Mastino Napolitano
  • Fila Brasiliero
  • Mastiff
  • Caucasian Shepherd Dog
  • Cane Corso

Tips for future or current owners:

  • if you don’t have a minimum of experience breeding a dog, don’t get one of a potentially aggressive breed;
  • the owner must be a balanced, calm person with a strong enough character to impose himself on the dog, who will have to consider him as the “pack leader”;
  • a dog of this breed is energetic, needs a lot of movement, attention and training. You should consider whether you are prepared to allocate sufficient time to it;
  • from an early age, the dog will need to be socialised with both people and other animals;
  • whatever aggressive tendencies they show, they should be firmly restrained. This does not mean that we will in turn be aggressive towards the dog;
  • discipline training is mandatory, starting at 3-4 months, at the latest at 6-7 months;
  • training to stimulate aggression, attack training, is absolutely forbidden;
  • the dog should not be left unattended, especially if there are other dogs around.
