Sighthound is a type of a dog, that hunts by sight rather than scent. Because they use sight, all the sighthounds have to be very fast dogs.
Sighthounds are the fastest dogs in the world and the famous Greyhound is part of this group. Because they need to be fast, they have lean bodies, flexible back and long legs.
Sighthounds are very old and ancient group of dogs. For example Saluki or Sloughi are very old breeds.
I mention some questionable breeds into the video. Rhodesian Ridgeback, Thai Ridgeback and Basenji are sighthounds based on some major kennel clubs while some other kennel clubs put them into different group. But since there is always at least one major kennel club (FCI or AKC) that mark them as sighthounds i decide to include all three into this video.

Cane Corso is descendant of Roman dog breeds, that were used in wars. When the Roman Empire falls, Cane Corso was used as guard, but also as farm dog and hunter. As you can see, it is very skilled and versatile dog, and especially the hunting ability is great, he was used to hunt dangerous animals, like wild boars.
Coat of Cane Corso is short, but very very dense and glossy. I personally finds it great looking. Cane Corso color can wary, the most common color of Cane Corso is black, light or dark shades of gray, or in light or dark shades of fawn, red, or brindle. Its also very common for them to have white patterns over their body, mostly on their nose, chest, toes and chin.
The thing you will love about Cane Corso is, that they dont drool that much, if we compare them to other mastiffs. But of course, they will still drool, they are mastiffs. They also have less wrinkles than typical mastiff, their skin is tighter.
They are also more trainable than other mastiffs, but again, they are still mastiffs. Which means, they have mind of their own and that they are independent animals. It will not be super easy to train them well, you will have to be consistent and strong leader.

Do not be fooled by their size. Most of these dogs, especially when they are younger, are very active. And a lot of time, they are very protective. It is like they are not aware, that they are so small and they feel they are your guards.
Toy dog breeds are trainable. But as with all dogs, you must be firm and consistent. Which might be very hard for some people, because it can be hard to be firm on these little cute dogs with big eyes. But if you want dog, that will not be chewing, nipping etc, you will have to be patient, consistent and firm on them.
It is also advised to not over protect your dog! You will often time see small dogs that are afraid of everything. It is because their owners are over protecting them. It is a mistake. Its much better to act to them like to normal dog.

Lets start with origin of Kangal Shepherd. We actually dont know, how exactly was Kangal Shepherd bred, but there are some rumours. We definitely know, that they are from Turkey and Back in the days in Turkey, Sivas province, the farmers have a big problem with predators like wolves and bears, who were killing their livestock. That is why they bred Kangal Shepherd, which was a dog, that is strong, agile and intelligent enough to repel a wolf.
Kangal Shepherd dog has great temperament. Its very brave, loyal, but most of all, which is very important for dog this big, they are pretty predictable and reliable. They were bred to not be agressive towards other people, so if the Kangal or its family is not at any danger, the Kangal will be most of the time pretty friendly.
They are very territorial, which can be problem, if some people or animals will visit your home. Kangals might be not okay with that, because they really treasure their territory. But if you socialize them properly, there should not be big problems with that.
Kangal need a lot of space, so its good if you have bigger garden. They are also barkers, so make sure, that your neighbours are okay with that. The fence around your garden should be tall and it should have good deep foundation, so the Kangal can not run away. People would be scared of him and they would probably call police.
Last thing i would love to say, is how strong they actually are. The Kangal bite force is the strongest of all dog breeds. Their PSI (which is an unit for meassuring bite force) is incredible 746. Second Bullmastiff is on 556 PSI and famous Pit Bull only on 235 PSI. So the Pit Bull bite force is three time lower than Kangals.

Majestic, noble, gentle and patient. These are the words, that are desribing beautiful breed of Tibetan Mastiff. Tibetan Mastiff is one of the most ancient and primitive dog breeds that are still alive today. They were originaly bred to guard livestock and of course, as amazing guard dogs in Tibet. Today, just like almost every other dog breed, they are also used as great family companions.
You should be very prepare for very independent dog, before buying Tibetan Mastiff. They were bred to guard livestock for centuries, so they bond very closely to them and nowadays, to their families – almost with fierce possessiveness. They make their own decision who is danger to them and who is their friend. Because of that, they need very strong leader, otherwise, they will try and get control over every situation.
Tibetan Mastiffs were bred as protectors for long time, so its no wonder, that they are independent, strong willed and territorial dogs. They dont like strangers very much, which makes them great watchdogs. They can be okay with strangers, if they are socialized properly. But they love their family no matter what. Amazing thing about Tibetan Mastiff is, that they are extremely patient and gentle with smaller kids. They also have normally no problem with other dogs and animals.
