PUPPY CARE RULES
10 PUPPY CARE RULES FOR PRESA CANRIO OWNERS
1. Socialize your puppy.
Socializaton plays a big factor in you puppies character. Introduce your puppy to other dogs, children, people and new places. One of the best ways to socialize your puppy is to allow him to interact with other adult dogs. Most adult dogs won’t be aggressive toward a puppy though sometimes, a big dog will find a way to put a puppy in its place, perhaps with a growl or a snap. This is good for its character.
2. Don’t over-exercise your puppy.
Even though a Presa puppy is large in size, he is still a baby and his joints and ligaments are not fully developed. Long walks, running, jumping and hiking is not good for your puppys health and development. This kind of long tearm activity can cause hip dysplasia and elbow injury.
When it comes to puppy care,walking and exercise, the rule is that puppies should have no more than 5 minutes of exercise for each month of age up to twice a day. So if your puppy is 3 months old- 15 minutes, 4 months old-20 minutes, 5 months old- 25 min…
3. No walking on stairs.
Stairs pose a high risk for your puppies hips and it is best to avoid them at any cost while he is still growing. Study has shown that puppies climbing stairs at an early age are more likely to develop hip dysplasia. If you have stairs in your home, cary him up and down the stairs for as long as you can.
4. No exercise two hours before or after eating.
Exercising your dog before or after he has been physical activit can lead to gastric torsion. Gastric torsion is a medical life-threatening condition that affects dogs in which the stomach becomes overstretched and rotated by excessive gas content.
5. Regular vet check-ups.
Regular vet check-up is a must. You can play a big role in keeping your puppy healthy by doing health check-ups at home. Regulary check his weight, coat, skin, eyes, ears, teeth and gums. This can prevent little problems from turning into big ones.
6. Ensure a balanced diet.
Another important puppy care rule is a balanced diet. Puppies are always hungry and will eat what you give them, but what you feed your puppy really matters. A puppy’s diet must be balanced so he receives the right amount of nutrients. We recommend super premium dehydrated dog food for puppies with high protein content and just the right amounts of fats, minerals and vitamins.
Meat is also an important factor. At least once a week give your dog fresh or cooked meat (no bones and no pork meat!). Also, always make sure your puppy gets plenty of fresh, clean water. More
7. Buy suplements.
Your puppy is growing at a fast rate. Make sure you give him suplements to help him in this period.
Vitamines, Glucosamine for the joints and fish oil are a good thing for your puppy. Suplements, although good for you dog, can not be given in large amounts and constantly. Make sure to contact your breeder or vet for additional advice on the dosage of suplements.
8. Feeding Frequency.
A puppy shoud eat at least three times a day the recommended portion of dog food per day till 5 months of age. After 5 months, puppies can eat two meals each day, about 12 hours apart.
9. Don’t overfeed your puppy.
A very common symptom of overfeeding is when a dog’s bowel movement is normal in the morning but soft at night. Hip dysplasia, joint pain and diarrhea are just some of the problems that occur because of overfeeding your puppy. On the back of every dry food you have feeding guides and charths of grams of food per kg of the dog.
10. Be the Pack Leader!
Dogs operate on a social structure of a rank – a hierarchy. Set boundaries, you lead, he follows.
Do not let him take positions above you. You are the alpha. If you are a first time dog owner, its best you take your puppy to a license dog trainer.

CHOOSING A PRESA CANARIO PUPPY
CHOOSING A PRESA CANARIO PUPPY
So you decided you want a Presa Canario. Picking a puppy from a litter should be fun but before you start your journey with this beautiful breed, there are a few things you have to ask yourself.
Can I afford to look after a dog?
You need to be absolutely sure that you will be able to provide for its needs for the entirety of its life. There are lots of costs associated with owning a dog such as insurance, vet bills, food and more. Make sure your budget is set up for owning a dog.
Is my home suitable for a dog?
A house with a yard is perfect for your puppy, but they will be content with living in a flat as long as they get the right amount of exercise. Fencing around the yard should be sutiable for a large breed dog. If you live in rented or council accommodation, you need to get written permission from your landlord before getting a Presa Canario.
Will my dog be left alone regularly?
A dog is not a toy and can not be left alone the whole day to take care of itself. Make sure you have considered how they will be cared for when you are at work, out for the day or on a holiday.
Can I give my dog the exercise it needs?
Presa Canario needs regular, quality exercise in order to stay happy and healthy. Make sure you have considered you have the time and energy to give your dog the exercise he needs.
Am I looking for a family dog or a protection dog?
If your anwser is both, a Presa Canario is a good choise. This dogs were bred for protection and security but are also a good and loyal family pet. They will give anything to please there family and loves company and interaction.
Are they good with other dogs?
A Presa canario is a dominant breed and is not so good with strangers and other dogs of the same sex. There are always exceptions, but you have to understand this is not a dog you will take of the leash in a dog park. If you already have one or more dogs at home, consider getting a presa puppy the opposite sex and having the space to separate them. Their temperament is also down to you, because temperament is heavily influenced by upbringing.
Are they good with children?
The anwser is yes , but a Presa Canario as any other dog is not a toy and must not be left alone with small children unsupervised. You must be responsible and let them have space for them self. If they are raised and socialized in a family home with children, they will be the childrens best friend and loyal protector.
Boy or girl?
There are a few things to consider. Female dogs who are not neutered will have ‘seasons’ at least twice a year where they will bleed and be attractive to unneutered male dogs .You willl need to be prepared to manage this and prevent any accidental litters. Male dogs are more dominant and usually dont get along with other male dogs.
The next step is chossing a puppy.
When choosing a presa puppy we must ask ourselves a question – do we want a show dog or a pet?
When choosing a show dog, structure and temperament is most important. A good puppy is proportional, has a big head and wide and deep chest. Muzzle is shorter than the head, usually about 40% of the length of the head. Ears are set wide and high. Hight should be proportional to the rest off the body, never to short or to long. Tail is thick at the base, curved all the way to the tip. Checking for a scissore bite and both testicles in males is also crucial.
