7 Great Reasons to have a Presa Canario in Your Family

Buying a Presa Canario Puppy is without a doubt one of the best choices you can make when it comes to choosing a dog to love. With this in mind, we are going to provide you with 7 great reasons to own this breed and to have it in your family.

1: Lack of Health Issues

Presa Canario Puppies are known for being tremendously resistant to diseases. With this in mind, taking care of them wouldn’t require any special treatments. This breed of dog is particularly strong and resistant when it comes to illnesses, and you can rest assured that you are highly unlikely to have a problem of the kind. Finding a reputable breeder who stands by harnessing healthy traits is of the utmost importance.

2: They Are Protective

Presa Canario dogs are particularly protective of their own. As soon as they start perceiving you and your family members as its owner, you can rest assured that it’s going to protect you at all costs. This trait is natural to the breed, so it is up to you to suppress it, or support it.

3: Tremendous Loyalty

The breed is known for being highly intelligent and very loyal. It’s obedient, even though it’s not that easy to discipline. Keep in mind that the dog can become rather aggressive, just like any other dog, if you fail to deliver the right type of training. They will assimilate you and your family into their pack, and let nothing stand in the way of harming you.

4: You Want a Watchdog

Presa Canario is a mastiff breed, and it’s known for being particularly powerful. It’s very protective, as we mentioned above and is, therefore, the perfect watchdog. If you need a property guardian, this is without a doubt one of the best choices you can go for. This breed offers some serious protection for you and your family, and with committing to proper training, you will feel fully secure leaving your loved ones at home with a real life alarm system at your beckon call.

5: Little to No Grooming Requirement

Buying a Presa Canario puppy will ensure that you wouldn’t have to spend excessive amounts of time to groom the pet. This is because it has a firm short hair which is rather easy to maintain in proper shape. Keeping them bathed once in a while, as well as looking over their general coat is always encouraged to making sure there is no issues.

6: It’s Intelligent and Susceptible to Training

Even though it’s not highly advisable to purchase a Presa Canario puppy if you have no previous experience, the breed is known for being highly trainable and intelligent. Of course, retrievers, for instance, are way docile and passive family member. That being said, the Presa is fearless, and will have a much stronger bond with the family with plenty of interactions with it. We have seen Presa Canarios trained to be extremely passive, and others to be full estate guardians that have a daily job.

7: Moderately to Very Affectionate

If you are looking for a gullible pet, then a Presa Canario Puppy isn’t the best choice. However, if you look for a dog with presence and character, this is one of your best bets. The Presa Canario is a characteristic breed, and it requires quite a lot of effort in terms of training. Failing to do so might cause the dog to be very aggressive from lack of proper stimulation, a beta owner, and a combination of other factors. Professional training is highly recommended!
