Thats a good question. That all depends on what you are training your presa canario dog to do. For obedience training no. Just like any breed presa canario's posses the strong urge to please their master. If you want the dog to be "less aggressive" it is printed in their dna. Some people will say its all in the way you raise the dog but those are the people that really dont know the breed. My last presa was a 140lbs male and he seemed to love everyone until one day my 8 month old niece was crawling by him , she is now missing her left arm the attack was completely unprovoked. Dont get me wrong i love the breed and im still very passionate about them but i just cannot bring myself to have another and risk the accident and possibly losing both a child and another dog.
