The Dogo Argentino is an amiable, outgoing, powerful breed that should never show unprovoked aggressiveness toward people. They were bred to be gentle and protective of family members, especially children. However, it also was bred to be a strong, tenacious, fearless hunter of large, dangerous prey. They must be properly excercised daily to ensure the overall physical and mental well being of the Dogo. This is not a easy task therefore I will only sell to dedicated, dominate breed educated owners capable of taking on the responsibility of a very strong self thinking dog. Dogos make excellent companions for active, committed, experienced dog owners. Some Dogos especially intact males can be assertive, overbearing and territorial around other dogs. In our experience with a proper introduction, negative conflicts are generally avoided. We recommend not keeping same sex working or dominate breeds together with Dogos. However, this breed has a kind and loving disposition and is gentle at home, easily making the transition from hunter or guardian to companion. That duality of the Dogo Argentino is what sets them apart from any other breed of dog. I strongly recommend that a solid foundation of obedience to be implemented as early as 4 months of age to help ensure a happy and respectful relationship. A properly socialized Dogo Argentino makes friends easily and is a trustworthy partner in any situation. It is important that a clear hierarchy be established within the household so that all people and other pets can coexist harmoniously. Alpha Dogos are raised indoors as family and accept other pets.
