Default Dogo Argentino possibly in the future

Hello all, I have been doing some research & have found that a dogo might be a good fit for me in the future (a year or so from now) Does anyone have experience with this breed? How is day to day life with them? how are they to raise & train?
thanks.

Make friends with a breed club, find a local contact, assist in a rescue.

They're tough dogs with extreme agility for their size.

Why do you want one?

I just like the breed, I have been doing research & so far I like what I have been reading, this is not going to happen until next year at the earliest. I also have been researching the cane corso ... but they may be too large for me, I also like their temperment though.

remember I have done ACDs ... another tough breed so I am no stranger to tough breeds who are very athletic

Or a Dogo.

But seriously if you think a large molosser compares to an ACD you're in for a world of surprises.

Yep. I didn't want to name dogo mainly because if asked I can't say I have experience with them


Seriously. Just, don't.

Pretty much that. They don't even compare. Not even a little bit, actually not at all.

Why do you want a Molosser breed, other than you like them and think they will be a good match?

I never said they did, anyway I have recieved loads of very useful information elsewhere by some very nice people who actually cared to provide me with USEFUL info instead of a bunch of snarky comments ...
thanks anyway though.

Honestly? Because molosser breeds are not normally suited to people with severe social disorders. These dogs are very in-tune with their owners and the owner's discomfort in social situations is going to travel right on down the leash and can cause the dog to assume that otherwise normal social interactions are threatening because of the way the owner reacts to them. That can create a pretty damned dangerous situation, and I don't know about you, but I'd like to be able to legally own these breeds for the remainder of my lifetime.

I would be interested to know the experience you have that allows you to make this statement.
