The Tosa’s coat does not require any special care. Regular brushing is perfectly adequate. Since this dog is very prone to bed calluses, the Tosa should be prevented from lying on a hard surface for too long. It is therefore advisable to always carry a soft dog blanket with you.
This breed does not have any typical diseases. Only the increased risk of overstressing the bones and joints during the first 12 months should be considered.
Activities with the Tosa
The Tosa feels a high urge to move. This makes it the perfect companion for jogging and cycling.
Note: In the first year, the Tosa is still growing and should therefore be introduced to exercise slowly to prevent injuries to the bones and joints.
