3 Reasons: Why Socal Presa Canario is the One of the Best Breeders in the USA

Here in the USA, Presa Canarios are definitely not the most popular breed of dog in the entire country. They say that dogs are man’s best friend, and if you’re a dog owner, you will instantly understand why that is. Dogs are so incredibly loyal and affectionate towards their owners that it is virtually impossible to not fall in love with a dog once you become an owner. There are many different breeds out there to choose from, but the Perro de Presa Canario is one of the most gorgeous and robust breeds in the country, and dare we say, the world. Unfortunately as these breeds are so popular, there are some unethical “breeders” out there that cannot be trusted. Socal Presa however, are widely regarded as one of the best breeders in the entire USA, and for very good reason. Here’s a look at 3 reasons why Socal Presa have such a stellar reputation in the dog breeding world.

They ALWAYS put the welfare of their animals first First and foremost, one of the main reasons why Socal Presa has such a fantastic reputation in the dog breeding world, is because they always put the welfare of their animals first. They breed to honor the Presa Canario and do it rarely, rather than trying to breed as many animals as possible to maximize their profits. Each one of their studs and queens undergoes extensive health checks, and receives the best possible food, drink, care, and attention that money can buy. Their dogs are family, so they are allowed to roam freely around the premises, rather than being kept in cages, restraints, or kennels. The welfare and safety of their dogs is their number one priority, and this makes all of the difference in a dog breeder.

No crossbreeding Less reputable dog breeders will often crossbreed their dogs, and try to pass them off as pure to buyers, which is not only dishonest, but it is now no longer a pure breed Presa Canario. Socal Presa however, NEVER crossbreed their dogs, so you can rest assured that each pup that is born will be 100% pure Presa Canario. When sourcing breeders, each dog and owner will be vetted thoroughly, to ensure the owners are genuine, and to ensure that the dogs used for breeding are fit, healthy, and above all else, happy. Each breeder is trusted, reliable, and honest, and again, this is reflected in the animals.

They breed for the love of the animals A Presa Canario is one of the most loyal, gorgeous and best guardian breeds of dog in the entire world, and Socal Presa wish to help other like minded dog lovers across the country, enjoy these wonderful animals. All clients are spoken to in a manner that makes them quickly understand the power and potential of their new puppy. The Perro de Presa Canario puppies are delivered in their home and can roam freely around the grounds until they find a home (in the day), and they are looked after as if they are a part of the family – because they are. They receive heaps of love, get to play with humans and other Presas, and receive top quality care and attention along with basic training.

Cropping my Presa Canario Puppies Ears, Yes or No?

There are many people who get into heated debates regarding ear cropping on dogs. Some say that this is barbaric and that dog’s ears and tails should never be amputated in any way. This is something that some dog owners will defend by saying that the procedure is done with proper anesthetics and the dog feels no pain because of it. In this article, we are going to be talking about the benefits of cropping Presa Canario ears and the benefits of keeping them. This is going to allow you to make an informed decision on the matter.

Keeping the ears intact

One of the main things about keeping the dog’s ears is that this gives them a friendlier look. The natural ears of a Presa actually look quite good and there is no problem in keeping them if you are not planning to have your dog in some kind of contest that requires cropping.

Some countries have banned this procedure because they consider it to be animal abuse and this could also be a reason for you to consider not doing it.

There is no actual enhancement in the dog’s performance or hearing ability if you get the ears cropped, so the truth is that the only reason to do it is because of the opinion of the breeder and/or owners who believe that this makes the dog look much better.

Cropping the ears

It has become a tradition for the ears on this particular breed to be cropped. According to many breeders, a great ear crop for the Presa Canario will show even more facial expression, and in the USA it is a completely legal practice. This procedure according to veterinarians, is not painful or harmful in any way.

There are also some males that have really long ears and cropping them will be great because it will allow them to avoid injury. Other people consider that the natural look of their ears is not very good looking and it takes away from the beauty of their breed.

The Perro de Presa Canario is a working breed, and cropping the ears helps avoid future injury to them in a multitude of ways. Understanding that by having those floppy things in battle with a ferocious wild beast, the beast will latch on to them naturally, and so removal avoids that entirely.

Some people say that they like to crop their dog’s ears because that makes them look more alert and ferocious and they want their dogs to guard their property effectively. While the crop does indeed make a dog look more menacing, it won’t make the dog more alert or more capable of doing this.

Canada has banned this practice and so have many countries in Europe, but it seems to continue to be allowed in the United States, even with the constant protests of animal rights activists.

Dog breeding

People who plan to breed dogs will crop according to the breed as it retains the look of the show or working version of that breed. This generally is going to raise the value of the puppies, but the crop will not alter the pedigree on the Presa Canario puppy in any way. In fact, presa canario puppies are very robust and physically strong dogs, and when you crop the packs ears, they have to be separated which takes away from the bonding aspect. For 2 weeks they will have stitches in their ears, and naturally they will want to bite each other through out the day, so you can imagine what would happen if they were not separated.


It might seem like cropping the ears of your Presa Canario is the best decision you can take because of the look it will give to your dog, but there is really no good reason to do this if you plan to have your dog at home and you are not looking to register the animal for a contest. In the end it is all about personal preference, and if you go to a reputable veterinarian who has completed several Presa Canario puppy ear cropping’s, then you should not have a problem. Make sure you ask for past pictures of their work specifically on the “Presa Canario”. Make sure they are taking care of the aftercare, etc.

Understand this is an art almost like tattooing, yes you can get one, but will it be a good one is the question! Good luck either way with your Presa Canario Puppy!

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!

King is a robust Presa Canario that is barely starting to fill out as he is maturing. We estimate him gaining another 8-14 pounds more over the next few months as he increases slightly in width. He has an excellent bond with this family of mostly girls, and is playful, but fearsome to strangers and intruders. When his family is away he is in charge of the property and to thwart off baddies with ease. Easy to leave home unattended when you have a “King” to your disposal.

Bella is a force to be reckoned with her “gamey” style personality comes out and she wants to go on the hunt. Very “cat like” and quick on her feet, its easy to see that she would make a great companion to hunters. True to her pictures on here, she does none the sort and the only hunt she attends is searching the perimeter for intruders. She is fully trained and will not leave the backyard unless directed to. Very smart and eager to please, she is a pleasure to keep around as she requires little attention but is so gentle and sweet when you give her it.
