The Bando Bull can be stubborn and are not recommended to first time dog owners, they are best suited to experienced, dominant owners. Early socialization and training are important. You need to be prepared to do the socialization and training, give him the exercise he needs and love him. An ideal owner will be prepared for that and have experience in dog ownership already. A Bando Bull needs to know what is expected of him; rules to follow and limits to what they are and are not allowed to do. The objective in training and successfully keeping this dog is to achieve pack leader status. 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. 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 success. This breed tends to snore and are moderate droolers.
