I have a unilateral dogo... they react and act exactly as normal dogos, you can't even tell the difference...

Why do you have one?

How old is he because when I just got my dogo he didnít react to anything. I began to believe that he was fully deaf but then as time passed and he got used to me he began to react to me and I even followed him around to see if he'd react to any sounds and he did. What I'd advise you to do is before you begin trying to train him, try to get all of his energy out of him. Do what you must... That's the most hardest thing for me to do. It's unbelievable how much energy these dogs have. After your done and you believe that your dog is tired and hungry begin training him. Show him a little treat, let him sniff it and all of his attention will be on you.

If your problem is getting his attention when he wonders off to far, I'd say get one of those high pitched whistles that we can't hear, but does catch every dogs attention. I'm certain he's bound to hear it.
