Celebrated Dog Brutality in Japan

Due to his Japanese dog fighting history, the Japanese Tosa is banned in Australia, Cyprus, Denmark, Iceland, Malaysia, Malta, New Zealand, Norway and Turkey.

The Tosa has been bred to be a very quiet dog because Japanese dog fighting rules required the dogs to fight silently.

The Tosa is loyal, sensitive to the tone of ones voice, paying close attention to their commands. This is not a noisy breed. The Tosa was once used for dog fighting and was bred to fight quietly as Japanese dog fighting rules called for silence. This natural guard dog is protective, courageous and fearless. They need an owner who knows how to display leadership at all times. Socialized them well starting at puppyhood. Aggression and attacks on people are due to poor handling and training. Problems arise when an owner allows the dog to believe he is pack leader over humans and or does not give the dog the mental and physical daily exercise they need to be stable. This breed needs owners who are naturally authoritative over the dog in a calm, but firm, confident and consistent way. A stable, well-adjusted, and trained dog is for the most part generally good with other pets and excellent with children in the family. They must be firmly trained in obedience from an early age. This is not a breed for first time dog owners. A well balanced Tosa who knows his place in the pack will not snap or bite. Early proper manners and training is a must with this breed, teaching the dog to heel on the lead and go in and out doorways after the humans. The Tosa is great with children in the family. Docile and affectionate with the owner. They are protective yet gentle. The Tosa has a very stable temperament. They make an excellent guard dog. Their deep bark and massive size is enough to keep out intruders. Can be reserved with strangers, however a well balanced Tosa will accept newcomers if properly introduced. Socialize this breed well. They need a strong, firm, consistent, confident pack leader who can keep him in this rightful place, below all humans in the alpha order. It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in their pack. When we humans live with dogs, we become their pack. The entire pack cooperates under a single leader. Lines are clearly defined and rules are set. You and all other humans MUST be higher up in the order than the dog. That is the only way your relationship can be a complete success. Tosa who are allowed to take over may be dog aggressive. Keep the Tosa away from other dogs that may want to fight, because the Tosa will most certainly win. They have a very high pain tolerance due to their fighting origins.
