Training and Husbandry of the Podenco Canario

The Podenco is often described as being very independent, which does not exactly make training easy. He also has a strong hunting instinct, which means that free running should be trained well from puppyhood on. The high urge to move makes these four-legged friends appear nervous at times, but by no means aggressive.

The Podenco has to be exhausted every day and loves to be mentally challenged. For example, he has a keen sense of smell, which you can further train with treat search games.

Info: If you have the Podenco Canario from puppyhood, then you have a good chance of directing its hunting instinct in the right direction. A consistent, but gentle, upbringing is important for the Podenco so that it doesn’t step on its owner’s nose.
