    Why Do Dogs Attack?

    Each of us should choose a companion pet that can bring up well. Behind aggressive dogs and dog attacks, there is always poor training.

    What is a fighting dog?

    According to general opinion, a fighting dog distinguishes itself from other breeds by being dangerous. The laic public could have met the word exclusively in contexts about bloody accidents and flaming crime reports. And that context stuck onto certain breeds such as Pit Bulls. Simplifying is considered to be the real problem. As life is not black and white, the dog is not a fighting or a simple dog, either.

    According to dog science, fighting dog is an animal bred and kept for fight; a fight where the fight is not an instrument but a goal.

    We also agree with the author's statement that different countries in the world consider different breeds as being fighting dogs so they extend the effect of the laws on dangerous dogs to different breeds. Fatal dog attacks are luckily quite rare but they do happen occasionally.

    The Reason for Aggressive Dogs: Lack of Socialisation

    Any dog breed can cause accidents, and thus can not be declared as a dangerous animal therefore, it does not depend on what genes it inherited. If an animal does not socialise well, does not receive an adequate education or the necessary for his breeding, he can become aggressive. We continually emphasise that dog keeping is a responsibility, a responsibility that we should breed the animal so that he can live peacefully with his environment. In our opinion generalisations related to dogs are not permitted.

    Of course, attack dogs for use by police and security services are trained to be this way and are not considered within the context of this article.

    Responsible Dog Breeding Could Be The Solution

    Unfortunately, while the media is writing articles on dog attacks, the community that intends to keep a dog is still in the "shortage" of a kind of preparation that should prepare future owners for responsible dog keeping, be it purchased or adopted. In our opinion the news media flew in that Zeus, as an adopted dog, has an unclear history, may lead them to the popular error that we should avoid dogs living in a shelter or either adopting them as it is not safe.

    Is a Shelter Dog Dangerous?

    There isn’t more risk in adopting a dog from the shelter than purchasing it. Animal welfare organisations and the dog schools cooperating with it, put all effort to balance these, in many cases very disappointed dogs both spiritually socially and thus, pass it to their owners. The rest really depends on them.

    The good care of the owner goes beyond having them vaccinated and properly fed. Owners should also be prepared to communicate with the animal, to learn to understand its signals. That’s why there is a need to train the owners as well.  

    People who work with or own aggressive dogs should always be careful when around other people to make sure they minimise the possibility of dog attacks.
