Distinctive features of hazardous rocks

Aggression of a particular dog towards a person, of course, is not means that all its breed must be considered uncontrollable to the killers. If you look, then almost every such the case is the fault of a person, not an animal.

It must be remembered that many breeds were originally bred in order to kill – and not only animals, but also people: in ancient powerful dogs fought with gladiators for the fun of the nobility, hard guarded the slaves on the plantations and did not even disdain humanity. IN our power pet genetic memory management: most dogs are very malleable – from them you can “fashion” education as a killer monster, as well as an obedient, balanced assistant.

The hunting instinct is present in the nature of all canids, it is possible to use as for peaceful purposes – for the service of man, for him good, and trouble for others. Potentially dangerous dogs breeds, regardless of their purpose, are endowed with common features, including:

  • incredulity and aggressiveness to strangers;
  • courage and determination;
  • security qualities;
  • selflessness in the interests of the pack;
  • desire to dominate and willingness to obey the leader.

Dog on training

Training is a prerequisite for keeping dogs potentially dangerous breeds

Systemic competent training is required for such dogs – thanks to an experienced trainer, their working potential is revealed, but while the animal remains adequate and manageable. However, even the most experienced dog handler is not able to predict all possible provocative moments and the reaction of the pet to them. Therefore need Strictly observe safety precautions:

  • prevent uncontrolled contact with outsiders;
  • for yard maintenance ensure perimeter reliability so that the dog could not marry him;
  • in crowded places to walk the pet only on a leash and in a muzzle;
  • Do not entrust the care of the dog to children and elderly family members.

Overview of the most dangerous dog breeds

There is no single rating of especially dangerous breeds – in each the country, even in each region has its own sad statistics, on the basis of which a biased attitude and terrible myths about cannibal dogs. At the beginning of 2019, a list of potentially dangerous dogs was officially introduced in Russia – according to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, it included 69 breeds, as well as their mestizo.

After some time, the list was reduced to 13 points – from he was removed, for example, a completely harmless sharpei, guilty only the fact that his very old ancestors once participated in battles on fun to the Chinese emperors.

Some other list items are also doubtful: some breeds so rare in Russia that ordinary people hear about them for the first time, others breeds do not exist at all – their names are spelled (“Ghoul dog” instead of “ghoul dong”; “North Caucasian dog” instead “Caucasian Shepherd Dog”).

These are the “killer” breeds presented in the final list:

  • akbash;
  • American bandog;
  • ambuldog;
  • Brazilian Bulldog
  • bulli kutta;
  • Alapakhskii purebred bulldog (otto);
  • bandog;
  • wolf-dog hybrids, wolf-breeds and their offspring;
  • ghoul dong;
  • pit bullmastiff;
  • Caucasian Shepherd Dog;
  • interbreeds mixed breeds;
  • crossbreed with purebred dogs.

However, the alarming list can be substantially supplemented – any protective breed of large dimensions, sometimes even the one from whom you do not expect an attack.

Which dogs attack people most often

No less than large breeds, shows any aggression to a person and any decorative trifle – Of course, the troubles in these cases are incommensurable.

The fact is that dogs are not aware of their size and possibilities: a microscopic alpha male toya will seriously throwing himself at a huge mastiff in whose mouth he could Spacious, as if in a carrying. With aggression towards people – that the same story: a healthy and mentally balanced dog of any breed can overcome the species taboo and attack a person in three cases:

  • if she, the owner or members of the pack, is threatened, in her opinion, danger;
  • when the boundaries of the territory that she considers are violated his;
  • with the encroachment of an alien on the holy – on food.

A separate topic – individuals with a torn psyche, extremely neglected upbringing or in a special way trained for anger; in all of these options clearly visible human factor, not the fault of the dog.

And if you believe the messages of the same press, then they lead in cases of impudent attacks on people, their injuries and even murders not at all the owner’s dogs, but half-handed down in packs mongrels – they really represent a big problem, which we ourselves have created for ourselves.
