The Perro de Presa Mallorquin is a laid back dog with a quiet nature but they are also protective and loyal to their family. They are brave, courageous and self-assured by nature. Although they have an independent nature with a streak of stubbornness, they can be trained from puppyhood to have the type of behavior that you want from them. The Mallorquin should be taught obedience and manners in a positive, kind way. Harsh methods only instigate aggression in this dog. The Mallorquin is not an easy dog for an owner to raise. They do need an owner that they can respect, one that is a leader and sets fair limits for their behavior. They are reasonably active dogs who will enjoy a long brisk walk each day to keep them fit and healthy. Although they mix well with other dogs of the opposite sex, they can be aggressive with other male dogs so always keep them on a leash when out and about. With an attractive coloring of brindle, fawn and black with white patches on the feet, chest or muzzle, the Mallorquin can also sport a black mask that gives them a mysterious appearance. Devoted and loyal to their owner and family, they are gentle and kind with children that they have been raised with.
