Good With Dogs:⬛⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜
The average price for a Tosa Inu female is between $1750.00 - $2000.00.
I have a Tosa Inu for 4 years now and he couldn't live with my other dog (neo mastiff), they have been fighting every day though he is calm with very small breeds. I'm sure Tosas can live with other dogs in a household, as long as they are introduced at the young age, Laura
I am a Kennel owner/operator, and I can tell you first hand Tosas can be whatever you make of them. Our dogs are unshakable guardians that double as kid's "ponies" on the holidays. You will have a hard time trying to find a better family dog. Sometimes it is easier with younger dogs to get them socialized and sometimes it is not, that depends on the dog. But the ultimate factor is whether or not you're gonna tolerate dogs that don't like other dogs. In this kennel, we have Tosas from Korea, Japan, The U.S., and Europe, and they all come to the same bottom line: If the dog thinks it's the leader it will make up its own rules and live by them, which may include bad manners with other dogs. If the owner is the authority figure, they make the rules, and one of our first rules here is dogs can't start fights. Our Tosas have lived with my mom's poodles, my sister's labs, and other family member's dogs just fine.
Our Tosa Inus have lived with my mom's poodles, my sister's labs, and other family member's dogs just fine. We have puppies all over the country living with dogs as small as 14-year-old Chihuahuas and Yorkies, and as big as other Mastiffs. Some of our puppies even live with cats! The bottom line is always going to come down to what the leader will tolerate. If you're the leader and you make a no fighting rule, you can even have 10+ Tosas eating next to each other without so much as a growl like we do. If the dog is the leader then you asked a good question and the answer is anyone's guess.
I fully agree that any dog will be what he or she is trained to be. I had a Gascon Bluetick hound, and as everyone knows, they have a very strong prey drive. My wife had a tiny Peekapoo that weighed 5 pounds. She found a rabbit in the yard to play with and they were best buddies. The Bluetick would not run a rabbit at night, but regularly caught and ate rabbits during the day. I scolded him off the yard rabbit and he would not hurt it, and in fact killed a fox that came into the yard after the rabbit, although I can not say he was protecting the rabbit or his territory. I do know that when he walked by the yard rabbit, he would look away from it as if he was resisting temptation. That rabbit lived in the yard for three years, brought in a mate, and raised letters, all without the Bluetick endangering them. When you can teach a hard headed hound to leave a natural prey animal alone, you can teach a dog whatever you have the patience and commitment to teach.
We had a Tosa from 6 weeks old until 14 years. Best dog we have ever had. Easy to train, loves kids and family. We miss him very much. Would like to have another one some day.
