I asked WHAT about them, like what traits draw you to them through your research of the breed?

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

This. I'm curious, since you said you don't know what like raising or training them is like- what exactly makes you want one?

How is the "why" relevant? I like both breeds (on paper so far, I am still a long way from a puppy), I merely asked for general information on them. I ask because Sadly all the info on the breed I have found is riddled with "alpha" this & "dominance" that, I used to be like that but I am not anymore I'm more a "it's yer choice" person now, thanks to having buddy I have going another way ... Will those methods work on a strong guardian breed? That's the real reason why I posted this is because everything I have read recently about training says that the notion that "strong" breeds like dogos & corsi need "dominance" training is not true.

Soooo which is right? Every breeder site I went to as well as the CCAA & the DAOA that's was all they talked about, how I needed to dominate my puppy & always "keep him in line". How much of this is true?

Um because you stared a thread about a breed you don't know anything about, and maybe your reasons would not make a good fit with this breed. Maybe if you stated why someone with experience could clear up any misconceptions you have of the breed.

What are you looking for in a dog breed?

The why is because you say you have researched them, I am curious what draws you to the breed.

Is it the looks? The size? The temperament?

I love the history of both breeds, their nature, the quiet air of confidence they have about them. I would love to get into bite work & the like & the usual breeds folks defer to for these sports don't mesh with me. I would even like to ge into weight pulling.

You'll be fighting an uphill battle with a dogo or corso in Bitework, they aren't play and prey driven as easily and require a lot of defensive pressure which when applied incorrectly can destroy your dog or create a monster, meaning if you plan to go down this route find the club first and the dog second.

Second, dogo do not have a very old history, corso are a relatively recreated breed and vastly different with lines. Corso carry a lot of instability and I would venture 80% of the breed is mentally or physically undesirable.

Dogo are interesting but can be hard to train, as some breeds are inherently more difficult. They too can vary by lines and you really need to be clear what you want in a dog in order to find the right line.

My buddies dogo that grew up with Arnold was a cross of a hog hunting line dogo and a conformation/sport line dog. He was a pushy dog, took naturally to defense, and was the first dog I had seen go up the leash over an unfair correction. He was stunningly agile for his size but relatively insecure about being alone and had SA issues. He was tolerant but not strange dog friendly. He wasn't much for sporting but he was a great hiking partner and something to look at.

I have worked with a few other dogo and a lot of ACD, I wouldn't compare them. I wouldn't compare the difficulty of a Malinois to a dogo, not that dogos are drastically harder but it is a whole different ball game, one that suits totally different people.
