Great Dane of Argentina
The breed of dogo argentino is relatively young – it was bred at the beginning of the last century. Despite the fact that the closest relatives of the “Argentines” are fighting dogs, they themselves were surprisingly non-conflict and balanced.
Dogs of Argentina are, first of all, “workers” and guard dogs. They can be trusted without hesitation to guard their home, to take with them for hunting or competitions. Dogs of Argentina are wonderful companions during outdoor activities and participants in children’s games.
A well-bred Argentinean mastiff is an example of calm and obedience. But to achieve this, the dog definitely needs constant training, which is best done under the guidance of an experienced trainer and from an early age.
Each owner wants to see his dog healthy, active and cheerful.
And, as you know, the basis of health is a proper, complete and balanced diet. Even if you purchase the freshest and highest-quality products, buy vitamins and mineral supplements, without a biochemical laboratory you cannot determine the exact nutritional value of the food you cook at home. That’s why PEDIGREE® has developed a special app that helps you evaluate how your pet’s diet meets its needs.
Proper nutrition in the first year of a puppy’s life largely determines how healthy and joyful your puppy will be in the future. Caring for the health of your pet, PEDIGREE® recommends a combination of dry and wet rations, which allows you to fully utilize the benefits of both. You can read more about this in the article.
