Jino is aware of the bad rap the Presa Canario gets as one of the most vicious dog breeds in the world, to which he says, “I always let the breed speak for itself. You have to see them and interact with them in person to know. For Presas, you really have to step up and be the pack leader and alpha.”
They are minimal shedders and droolers who are generally quiet and composed, unless their area of responsibility is encroached upon. “It’s up to the owners of the dogs to enforce rules and limitations for the dog to follow. Even Cesar Millan says it’s not the dog’s size but the energy that the owner projects to the dog.
“I could tell you everything I know about Presas but it still wouldn’t do them justice. They really are a very special breed.”
