Podenco Canario Breed Maintenance
The Podenco Canario is a slim dog with an elegant lithe build and has a short dense coat. Rarely needing a bath, you can get away with wiping the coat with a chamois to keep it looking well groomed and distinguished. But if a bath is unavoidable, use a gentle dog shampoo to protect the natural oils in their skin that protects them from the elements. Like most dogs, the Podenco Canario is prone to tooth and gum issues, so train your dog from a young age to have their teeth brushed. Not only will it prevent 'doggy breath', but it will prevent tooth problems such as decay. Remember to check those beautiful ears, they can be prone to a build up of dirt and wax, and if they become inflamed, it can be very painful for your dog. This dog is very energetic and requires a daily run to get the best out of the dog. They are ideal running or biking companions, but keep them on a leash to prevent them becoming sidetracked by some fast moving prey that they just cannot resist!
