Overview
Originating during the 1920's, this breed was developed by Dr. Antonio Nores Martinez to be a fearless big game hunter. They were also used in police and military work as well as a family guard dog and guide dog. However, the Dogo Argentino breed became a favorite of those involved in the bloodsport of dog fighting and as a result gained negative noteriety. In 1991 the Dogo Argentino was banned in Britain under the Dangerous Dog Act. They are also banned in Australia.
Character
With a unique coat, extremely strong jaws, and intense expression, the Dogo Argentino is a muscular breed of Mastiff proportion. This breed is highly intelligent, courageous, and mentally stable. Unprovoked aggressiveness or cowardice is considered to be a severe defect.
Temperament
The Dogo Argentino is not recommended for the novice or first time dog owner. This breed is extremely dominant and requires a dominant owner. It is crucial that new owners find ethical and reputable breeders as a steady temperament is imperative. They are loyal and devoted to family and make excellent guardians of their home and territory. This breed will do well with other pets they have been raised with. They are good with children but should never be left unsupervised. Dogo Argentino's area breed that exhibits dignity and is imposing in appearance. Potential owners need to be aware that this breed may be targeted for banning laws. In addition, insurance companies may refuse to provide homeowner policies due to the risk of legal issues.
Care
Dogo Argentino's require weekly brushing to minimize loose and dead hair. Bathing should only be done when necessary using a mild shampoo or a shampoo formulated for white coats. Frequent nail clipping is required. This breed is relatively healthy, although deafness and hip dysplasia can occur.
Coat
The Dogo Argentino coat is glossy, thick, short, and is soft in texture. They are constant shedders.
Training
Early and intense socialization and obedience training is an absolute must. This breed is highly intelligent and training must be done with respect, love, firmness, fairness, and consistency. The Dogo Argentino responds well to reward. Unpredictable behavior can occur if training is done with harshness, kennel isolation, or a regime of tough training. They excel in agility, as guide dogs, and police work.
Activity
This breed thrives on athletic activity and vigorous exercise. They are not recommended for apartment living. They do best in a securely fenced yard. The Dogo Argentino make good walking and jogging companions provided they are securely leashed and muzzled in public.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Dogo Argentino puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Is the Dogo Argentino good with kids?

1 Comment

Anonymous

The Dogo Argentino is not for a first time owner, they need an experienced dog owner and understanding of the breed. The Dogo Argentino can be just fine with children if raised with them, but all interactions need to be supervised at all times. The Dogo Argentino is a powerful dog and can easily knock a child over by accident, but because the Dogo Argentino has a very high prey drive, they can mistake a child for something fun to chase. So lots of socialization between the dog and child/children need to happen and supervision at all times.

I have a dominant and slightly aggressive 3 year old Yorkie, How will she do with a female Dogo? My Yorkie is not fixed yet, I'm considering getting her fixed since I don't think I am going to breed her. I am also wondering if spaying her will make her less aggressive towards other female dogs?

I took him for a home visit and he was a little aggressive with my 6 year old dog who is a lab/pointer mix that I rescued whom I have trained to be a therapy dog. I would like to rescue this dog and make him a therapy dog. Would a deaf dogo make a good therapy dog?

What are some of the risks for legal issues with the Dogo Argentino breed?

2 Comments

The Dogo is not currently on any home owners insurance lists for being uninsurable. A trained dog of any breed is the key to being lower at risk.

The Dogo Argentino has received a bad wrap, just like the pit bull. If abused or encouraged to be violent, they can become mentally unstable and can do a lot of damage without any provocation, what with being larger and stronger than the average pit bull. But if well raised, they make an excellent guard dog and companion around the home. All you've got to do is not beat the poor things. Legal issues in the US are currently the same as with any other dog. You're liable to be sued for damages should the dog attack someone, and it will be put down.
