Good with family, when properly owned and taught manners. As far as guard dogs, they can be. of course, depends on ow you define "guard dog". Dog who will warn you of strangers, or dog who will take down stangers?
My website has some things to learn about the breed, myths about it and how to shop for one. It's under renovation, so please excuse some of the missteps.
Looks like you're doing a fantastic job, which is refreshing since this has become this generation's version of the Dobermann.
About the Majorero, they look like ugly spaniels or pretty labs. That appearance it makes it difficult to believe such a dog would be so capable a protector; I guess that adds to the magic.
Anyway, how much has that breed lent to the Canary dog, if anyhting at all? From the sounds of it, the healthier, purer Canary Dogs are almost entirely of English parentage.
Also, do they manage the heat better than other large breeds?
