THE MOST DANGEROUS BREEDS OF DOGS IN THE WORLD
Which breeds are the most dangerous in the world? It is difficult to answer this question unequivocally, since the character of a small chihuahua may be more cocky than that of a healthy Doberman. And often the guilty nature and attacks on people and animals are not at all the dog’s genes, but its owners. As a rule, the owners are ready to spend money on high-quality food, visits to the veterinarian, treatment, but sometimes they completely “forget” that any dog that has reached 6-8 months must be trained. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon on the streets of our cities when a weak teenager barely holding back leads a Rottweiler on a leash without a muzzle. The owners of large dogs also amuse themselves when they chase down the street for an unfortunate cat, shouting: “Get it!”. Probably, as long as there are such owners in society, the cases of dogs attacking people (or animals) will not run out.
Why can a dog’s character become aggressive?
The main reasons that serve as a trigger for a dog to become a potential killer are:
Unfair breeding – as a rule, in most breeds aggression is a vice prescribed in the Standard. Such dogs, if they are born with an evil character, are not allowed for breeding. They are either euthanized or necessarily sterilized, and then brought up properly. But far from every breeder agrees to voluntarily give up profit, so a puppy with a complex character is often put up for sale without a twinge of conscience. If you do not start teaching him the rules of life in society in time, then over time you can get a dog that is dangerous not only for strangers, but also for family members;
Improper maintenance in puppyhood – any puppy needs to be raised quite strictly, but without beating and screaming. In fact, the owners of a small dog go from extreme to extreme. They either allow permissiveness (sleep on the master’s bed, bites during games, excessive affection, etc.), or, on the contrary, they can peel off the baby, punish undeservedly, not communicate and not play with him, or let the kid mock the puppy. Naturally, this significantly worsens the character of the dog. Another harbinger of trouble is when the puppy sits in the apartment without any contact, not talking to other dogs, not seeing strangers, cars. A dog who has grown up in captivity and whose owner has not instilled the basics of socialization, will behave inappropriately, being at liberty or seeing an outsider;
Lack of training – often dog owners do not understand the main purpose of training with a dog. Many people think that the dog is smart enough in nature, so you do not need to train it. In fact, with any dog you must pass the General Training Course (OKD). And if it was purchased to protect the owner and his property, then it’s not a bad idea to take the Protective Dog Training Course (ZKS). A trained animal will obey the will of the owner, his psyche will not allow failure in the form of a causeless attack on people. It is especially important to properly raise a large dog, in whose blood aggression to a person or other animals has historically been laid. It is right when the word of the master is the law. It is wrong when a dog is subordinate to its own instincts and desires;
Mismatch of dog and owner characters – many “serious” dog breeds are inherently used to dominate. From an early age they will understand how the owner treats them, how they react to their antics. If the owner’s character is too soft, a real tyrant can grow out of the puppy, who will dictate his conditions to the family. Naturally, in case of danger, such a dog does not listen to the owner and if he wants to make an attack, no one will stop him.
The most dangerous dog breeds
So, an improperly bred dog of any breed can become potentially dangerous. But still, there are certain representatives of the canine world, the most threatening to humans. These breeds include:
American Pit Bull Terrier – There is a lot of conflicting information about this breed. Owners of pit bulls talk about their excellent qualities – fidelity, good disposition, peace of mind. But in the news bulletins, it is these representatives of the canine world that are most often mentioned as killer animals. There is undoubtedly aggression in the blood of pit bull terriers, but by the efforts of breeders it is practically reduced to zero, in any case in relation to people.
However, not all owners of dogs of this breed benefit their peace of mind, because bloody dog fights are thriving all over the world, despite the prohibitions and criticism from animal advocates. In unskillful hands, a cheeky and ill-bred pit bull becomes a real living weapon. In many European countries, American pit bull terriers are officially banned or recognized as dangerous dogs. Such pets are strongly not recommended to be given to beginners, overly emotional and hot-tempered people. A pit bull must be provided with a high level of physical activity (this is not only long walks, but also dog sport).
