Introduction to Training the Perro de Presa Canario

Training your Perro de Presa Canario is not an easy job for first-time dog owners. This breed requires a very stern owner and one that can give a decent amount of time to every day and reoccurring training lessons. One of the main things to keep in mind is that you need to have your family members also abide by the same rules and regulations that you put down for your Presa Canario. There is a hierarchy that needs to be obtained very early on in your puppy’s age, along with discipline that will not break your dog but make your dog. For instance you should never have your dog sleep in your bed as it may make them think they have the same leadership as you do. You need to Presa Canario for walks daily in order to keep a strong bond, ease their mind, and instill confidence in them. Keep in mind when they are a puppy they are like a child and must be treated as such. You never want to instill fear into the heart and mind as this is a protection dog and by doing that, you will create a very scared and useless guardian for your family. Instead the easiest way of showing discipline is by a harsh tone in your voice and by creating a timeout area which essentially can be a kennel or a certain area of the house that they need to stay in for a short period of time.

When it comes to obedience training you need to get the basics down to the tee. This requires you to get at minimum a specific amount of commands Continue reading “Introduction to Training the Perro de Presa Canario”

Tell me what a Genuine Presa Canario Dog is?

Presa Canario is short for “Perro de Presa Canario,” which is Spanish for “Canarian catch dog” is a dog with a large-sized body that is thick, muscular and well-built. The breed originated in the Canary Islands off the coast of Spain, where the dogs have historically been used to herd large livestock.  The World Canine Association classifies the breed as a type of molosser, similar to a mastiff and is also been known to be the “Spanish Mastiff” or “Canary Mastiff”.  The Presa Canario is a powerful, playful, loyal, and intelligent dog that is sure to stand out from the crowd. They are naturally wary of strangers and uninvited guests and same gender Presa’s can be known to not get along at the adult age. A true Presa Canario should be robust, have a long and healthy life with almost zero medical issues, and living up to 12 years. Training them or teaching them is not so difficult as long as no fear is shown by the family they are around and they are given their proper respect.

Solve your Presa Canario Problems BEFORE They Start (Part 1)

As a Perro de Presa Canario owner, you have selected your dog so that you and your loved ones can have a protector, a working dog, a companion and a four-legged family member. You invest time, money and effort to care for and train the family’s new charge. Of course, this chosen canine behaves perfectly! Well, perfectly like a dog.

THINK LIKE A DOG
Dogs do not think like humans, nor do humans think like dogs, though we try. However, never try to “humanize” a dog. Unfortunately, a dog is incapable of comprehending how humans think, so the responsibility falls on the owner to adopt a proper canine mindset. Dogs cannot rationalize, and dogs exist in the present moment. Many a dog owner makes the mistake in training of thinking that he can reprimand his dog for something the dog did a while ago. Basically, you cannot even reprimand a dog for something he did 20 seconds ago! Continue reading “Solve your Presa Canario Problems BEFORE They Start (Part 1)”

The Original Breed Standard for the Perro de Presa Canario

In the late 1970s, the author Manuel Curto Garcia of the Book “Perro de Presa Canario” set the first standard of the Perro de Presa Canario into words for an article published in Doggy People magazine. A breed standard is a description in words of what the ideal representative of a given breed should look like. This first standard was simple and was based on the descriptions of the Presa provided by old-timers who knew the dogs in the Canary Islands plus some specific dimensions- size and weight – based on the author’s first Presa (a dog named Boby ). Boby, bred by Don Aleman, of Arucas, was a typical dog for that period, of moderate height and weight, with a light-brindle coat and a superb temperament. The Spanish breed club, el Club Espanol de Presa Canario, was founded in 1982. In 1989, the Spanish Royal Canine Society accepted the standard for the Presa Canario. Solid-black dogs were not included in the first standard though they were included later that same year, when the first registration for the breed was held at the Canaries’ Fair Institution, in Las Palmas, Grand Canary, on April 28, 1989.

The standard was clearly indispensable. Without it, it was practically impossible to “picture” the new Presa, which had been bred since 1975. The standard was to become to guide for breeders. In most cases, a breed standard illustrates an imaginary dog, because the “perfect dog” that the standard describes does not exist in Nature. Mother Nature does not allow perfection in a living creature; thus, breeders attempt to produce a dog that is as close to perfection as possible. In the case of the new Presa, the standard indeed was used to recreate the breed, not just reproduce better typical Continue reading “The Original Breed Standard for the Perro de Presa Canario”
