American Bandogge Activity Requirements
This breed is known to be very intelligent and confident but also quite docile. However, they will need owners who can clearly show that they are the leaders and can remain dominant. If not paired with the right owner, these dogs can become aggressive towards other canines. Because of this, they are not recommended for first time dog owners, as they will need someone who knows how to communicate. Unfortunately, in some areas on the East Coast, these dogs are used for fighting. But there are a greater number of people who use these dogs for protection, which they excel at. They can be difficult to control and get upset when left alone for long periods of time, unless they get enough exercise, both physical and mental, and have an owner that shows proper leadership. The American Bandogge will live happily with other pets if they were brought up and properly socialized with them, but will not get along as well with animals that they don’t know. Because these dogs are obedient, loving and protective of their families, they do great with kids. Due to their kind but protective nature, they do great as family dogs and as guard dogs.
