Dogo Canario Breed Maintenance
The Dogo Canario can be a high maintenance dog simply because of the amount time and energy needed to train and exercise him. He needs long walks daily that includes training while you walk. He should never be allowed to walk in front of his handler. The Dogo Canario should never be given the opportunity to take over the pack leader’s position. Even though he has a short, single coat, the Dogo Canario will shed. His coat is easy to groom and he should be groomed at least once a week using a firm bristle brush. After brushing he can be sprayed with a finishing spray and wiped down using a towel to make his coat shine. He does not need to be bathed often and many times can just be bathed with a dry shampoo. Ears should be cleaned regularly as well as nails being trimmed. His teeth should also be cleaned regularly to avoid any dental disease.
