Our Point of Views
Breeding, Selection and Training
El Primo y Al Islah breeding and training cultivation .
We prefer El Presa De Canario from the traditional/conventional breeding programs who lines are 100% spanish in orgin more importantly rustic in temp/type. Example Senor Irema Curto, Atlas Ascenio, Santana, Clemente Reyes Santana, and/or any other programs from individuals or small kennels anywhere in the earth that compliment our goals without compromise to the traditional Presa Canario.
Trait: Confident from the age of five weeks and above. High prey drive able to train easily visa via prey drive. Very agile, fast with innate amount of endurance. Confident in most urban environments, parks, forests, stadiums and supermarkets etc. Ready to engage any opposing threat man/men or animal at the same time obedient to his handler to what ever language / the pup/adult was trained. The quick switch that enables a well bred Presa Canario to turn on and off when the necessity dictates worst case scenario not so easy to to turn off (working homes only!). We would prefer that at 2 years of age our Presa’s can take full sticks strikes to the head, between the eyes, on the legs and ribs at will however releasing the bite on command. Again able to run a football field/race track in the heart of summer down south, north east or the winters of the mid west multiple times willing to go without quit regardless of the weather. Full mouth biters, hard pressure on bites, calm head in all bites.Fast on all fours with excellent movement and agility. Strong bite able to hang on to the average size car tire. Natural wind genetically willing and capable of jumping up and down for hours waiting his or her turn to engage into the fight of man.

Males: 90- 115 at one year 110-129lbs at three years of age. The ability to easily leap vertically up to a man shoulders 6 feet tall + .Very Muscular body, muscular built head, jaws, neck, shoulders, front legs, chest, ribs set and back legs!

We hope to improve and add our up and new coming bloodlines by adhering to traditional methods of breeding and selection from the age of 5 weeks to 14 weeks. We line breed tight, consistent and careful.
Overall we chose not to breed into any Presa Canario pups that were nervous, shy, to big, low prey drive, not outgoing, lack of full bite, no concentration of bite within different environments or made up distractions , too much barking or crying within time spent within his/her first 5 weeks to 14 weeks of urban pack life even if this pup matured into a working adult male/female. However there are exceptions to this principle in our breeding program.
Our respects to the few of those who are breeding a strong line presa of out of the traditional presa canario heritage/genetics. Therefore we have in N.America since 2003 chose and bred out one of the oldest lines of Presa on the sire and dam side of the pedigree. Since there is always room for improvement we chose to focuse on the innate traits that make for a balanced hard working dog. The benefit of line breeding is that we are able to work improving type and trait with continuity each litter. Therefore we are able to detail and select from the age of 5 weeks to 14 weeks with confidence and a higher point of accuracy. Please note that we have dealt with El Perro De Presa Canario since 1998 .
We have a listed conditions for a pup/adult to be selected for our El Primo and Al Islah lines which in short take a maximum of 18 months along with previously mentioned traits and types. After feedback from the counsel of care holders of selected potential representatives and it's completed phases . Thank you for visiting our site and viewing a snapshot of our principles much more details are within/ around the principles listed above.
