If you want to bring the Dogo Canario together with other dogs or let them play, it is important to socialize them from an early age. If you don’t do this, he becomes rather antisocial in dealing with his fellow dogs and can therefore quickly react with a growl or bark when they meet.
It is recommended not to keep him with cats. The Dogo Canario is less of a danger than the cat. With its sharp claws, it can quickly cause serious injury to the dog’s eyes.
He treats the children of his own family lovingly and acts as a great protector. Even with seniors, the dog has no problems. In general, when getting to know each other, the owner should always be there to take away the dog’s distrust of the stranger. If the first contact went well, the Dogo Canario is quite friendly.
