Grooming Your Presa Canario

Whether you are considering owning a Presa Canario or you have recently adopted one, you will want to ensure you are thoroughly equipped with information to help you take care of it. Below, you will find out more about the grooming needs, how often you should groom your dog, and how to perform the grooming of your Presa Canario.  

How Often Should You Groom Your Presa Canario?

One of the best things about this particular dog breed is that they are very low maintenance. They don’t require frequent grooming to maintain an attractive appearance. However, this doesn’t mean your Presa Canario should never be groomed. There are various benefits to having your furry friend groomed regularly, including improved hygiene, a healthier coat, reduced risk of ear infections, and a lower chance of matting.

Ideally, you should brush your dog’s fur every few days and your dog’s teeth at least three times a week. They should have their nails clipped every three to four weeks and be bathed with shampoo and conditioner at least once per month.

How Should I Groom My Presa Canario?

When it comes to grooming your Presa Canario, the process is not difficult. With a few important tools, such as a comb, a brush, pet shampoo and conditioner, dog nail clippers, and canine toothpaste and toothbrush, you will be well on your way to properly grooming your furry friend.

Once you have the necessary grooming tools, you can begin grooming your Presa Canario. Start by brushing the fur thoroughly and carefully to eliminate knots and tangles. Opt for a rubber curry brush if you can, as this is the recommended brush for this breed since it won’t scratch the skin like wire slicker brushes. If necessary, clip their coat.

Bathe and rinse your four-legged friend completely using both canine-friendly shampoo and conditioner. Be careful around their eyes and ears, especially if you don’t have a tear-free product. If you’re concerned, you can place cotton balls in your dog’s ears to prevent water from getting inside.

Use a hairdryer or towel to dry him after the bath. A hairdryer will not only dry your dog faster, but it will also help create a fluffier coat. Now, be careful drying your dog’s ears and eyes, as many don’t like this area to be messed with. Brush their teeth and trim their toenails. Perform a thorough brushing of the hair and apply leave-in conditioner if desired.
