I am not experienced with presa canarios but I can say my boerboel is not the same as an English Mastiff or bull mastiff. He is more intuitive and consistently puts his guard dog priorities first. I have aslo known English mastiffs to be less independent than the boerboel...and cuddlier but sometimes lazy. However I also believe my boerboel has been more difficult to train than an English mastiff. He is stubborn and proud...always challenging my authority. You MUST be the pack leader every minute of every day. Overall, there is no dog that compares to the Boerboel in my experience but Boerboels are not for everyone.
