The 5 most aggressive dog breeds in the world
1. The old English sheepdog (bobtail)
Very surprising is that this shepherd dog appears in this top ten. This is mainly because they are very protective towards their owners, and can therefore very aggressively come out of the corner compared to other people. Just like with the shar-pei, it is therefore also important to socialize this dog breed from an early age.
2. The American pit bull terrier
Perhaps surprising that they are ‘only’ on the number five, but the pit bull is not as aggressive as people think. It is true that many stories are told of pit bulls that attack someone, but look at it like this: The following four dog breeds in this list are much more aggressive, but when a pit bull does it can have more serious consequences than these other 4 breeds, making them easier to get into the papers.
3. The chowchow
With the chowchow it is important that from the very beginning a correct signal is given (by the owner) when doing good or bad things. This way the chowchow can be properly trained, but keep in mind that they can become very suspicious and that this can lead to attacks from other people. The chowchow is strongly discouraged for families with children or inexperienced owners.
4. The dachshund
The dachshund is at number three. The dachshund is a very beautiful dog breed and can be trained so that they are very sweet and very affectionate. It is also true that they are very easy to train that they obey very well, but that takes a lot of time. In general, there are more cases where the dachshund is very aggressive because of an inexperienced owner or because they have received too little time for a good upbringing.
5. The chihuahua
Looking very innocent is the chihuahua. They can be incredibly sweet and affectionate of their owner and that is not always very good news. This usually also refers to being very protective and therefore very aggressive towards other members of the family. Certainly families with children must pay close attention to this breed. The chihuahua is known as being willing to push their own will and some are therefore very difficult to train. Yet it is true that many families with children live well with this dog breed, and that is mainly due to the upbringing.
