Dogo Argentino is an impressive dog endowed with an imperious character. Bred them in Argentina for hunting large predators (jaguars, cougars, etc.), as well as for dog fights. However, today the Argentinean mastiff is increasingly acting as a companion.
Dogo Argentino is a born hunter, and he needs the ability to run in large spaces. Therefore, in the conditions of the city, these dogs often have a hard time. The owner's task is to provide intense physical activity.
Dogo Argentino is a fearless, hardy dog that can become a good companion - but only with the right upbringing and competent early socialization. Otherwise, you risk getting an aggressive, uncontrollable dog. It is better not to start this breed for a beginner.
Dogs of Argentina are very belligerent towards other dogs, so walking is possible exclusively on a leash.
It is strongly discouraged to leave the Argentine Mastiff alone with young children.
In 2004, the premiere of the film “My Friend is the Dogo of Argentina” about the dog named Bonbon, which was able to change for the better the difficult life of a person, took place.
