Many people say that some dog breeds are more aggressive than others. Well, maybe they are wrong! For example, Pit bulls, Rottweilers, and Dobermans have gained the reputation of being very dangerous dog breeds. In reality, being aggressive isn’t necessarily related to specific dog breeds, there are numerous factors to consider.
Aggression is very complex
Aggression is a very complex thing. A new research indicates that the breed is one small indicator of how aggressive the dog will become. Things like training, how the dog is treated by its owner, its environment as well as its situation can influence its behavior.
Is banning dog breeds really the solution?
Actually, there are some states in the U.S. and also in other countries that have existing laws that ban entire breeds because of their so-called aggressiveness. Even more so, they have them neutered so they won’t attack. Well, there are scientific facts that clearly state that a neutered dog doesn’t attack less because he is sterilized.
The scientific truth about aggressive dog breeds
DNews has created a video where they explain the scientific truth about this. With supporting evidence, it can’t be corroborated that certain breeds are more aggressive than others in given situations. To learn more about these scientific facts, check out the video below.
It is time to stop discriminate whole dog breeds because of misconceptions. Dogs only want to love and be loved back, but this is not by teaching them to hate and fight that these bad judgments will stop. We should give them the chance they deserve. By doing so, these dogs will turn up to be loving and faithful companions.
