Podencos Canarios are active dogs that need plenty of daily exercise. Long, brisk walks and opportunities to run and chase in a fenced yard will help them burn their endless energy. They also seem to enjoy participating in dog sports—such as lure coursing, racing, agility, and competitive obedience.
Always visit a professional veterinarian if you believe your dog may have health issues.
