to the tone of one’s voice, paying close attention to commands. 
This is not a noisy breed. Tosa Inu natural guard dog is protective, courageous and fearless. Socialized this dog well starting at 
puppy hood.
 Aggression and attacks on people are due to poor handling and 
training. Problems arise when an owner allows the dog to believe 
he is pack leader over humans and/or does not give the dog the
 mental and physical daily exercise  it needs to be stable. 
This breed needs owners who are naturally authoritative over 
the dog in a calm, but firm, confident and consistent way. A stable, 
well-adjusted and trained dog is for the most part generally good 
with other pets and excellent with children in the family. It must be firmly trained in obedience from an early age. Tosa that knows 
his place in the pack will not snap or bite. Early proper manners 
and training is a must with this breed. The Dog is great with 
children in the family. Docile and affectionate with the owner. 
It is protective yet gentle. The Tosa has a very stable temperament. 
It makes an excellent guard dog. Its deep bark and massive size is enough to keep out intruders. Can be reserved with strangers, 
however a well-balanced Tosa will accept newcomers if properly introduced. These Tosa Inu need a strong, firm, consistent, 
confident pack leader who can keep them in their rightful place, 
below all humans in the alpha order. It is a natural instinct for a 
dog to have an order in its pack. When we humans live with dogs, 
we become their pack. The entire pack cooperates under a 
single leader. Lines are clearly defined and rules are set. 
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 complete success. That are allowed to take over may be dog aggressive. Keep the away from other dogs that may want to fight, because this breed will most certainly win. They have a very
 high pain tolerance due to their fighting origins.

Tosa Inu Origin
Japanese Dogs has been bred for hundreds of years in Japan. 
The country has a long history of dog fighting, beginning in 
the 14th century. It was developed between the period of 1868 
and 1912 by crosses with the Kochi (a local Japanese breed), 
native Shikoku fighting dogs, with Western breeds such as the 
German Pointer, Mastiff, Great Dane, Bulldog, St. Bernard and 
the Bull Terrier. Tosas were often referred to as the "Sumo 
wrestler of the dog world." In Japan, the Tosa is considered
a national treasure. Although dog fighting is now illegal in 
Europe, North America, and Japan, secret, illegal pit fights 
continue in remote rural regions of Japan, where the Tosa,
 at 66-88 pounds (30-40 kg.)—smaller than those bred in the
 West—is still used for fighting. The breed excels at Japanese-
style dog fighting. Japanese dog-fighting rules in the last century demanded that dogs fight silently, without cowering, and the 
Tosa fought by these rules—relentlessly and silently. The 
Tosa is a rare breed, even in its native land and has only 
recently been introduced to the USA. Unfortunately, this 
breed is banned in some countries as a dangerous breed. 
It is definitely unsuitable for beginners, but with the proper socialization, handling and training, it can make a wonderful 
family companion. This massive dog excels at weight-pulling 
and makes a great watch and guard dog.

Tosa Inu  Head
The head is large and blocky when viewed from any angle. 
When viewed from the side, the skull and muzzle are roughly 
parallel to one another. The stop is moderately deep and fairly 
abrupt, forming an angle of about 130 degrees between the 
line of the muzzle and the line of the forehead. The skin on 
the skull and foreface is wrinkled, and the wrinkles may 
extend down the cheeks into the dewlap. The wrinkles 
become more prominent when the dog is alert. Excessive 
wrinkling is neither favored nor penalized. Gender 
difference in head is slight but apparent in that the 
female's head is slightly less massive and is somewhat 
more feminine in appearance. Tosa Inu have
White markings on the head are acceptable but not preferred.

broad between the ears. Viewed from the top, the skull is 10 to 20 percent wider than it is long. There is a deep median furrow that diminishes in depth from the stop to the occiput. The muscles 
above and below the zygomatic arch are well developed and 
The supraorbital arches over the eyes are moderately well defined.
