The loving, friendly, and good-natured Cavadors enjoy human presence and stay close to their owners. Moreover, these gentle and lovable dogs are good with kids. They make ideal playmates for children who can actively participate in dog sports or teach them tricks. These qualities make them excellent family pets.
Because of their lively as well as inquisitive disposition, they love to run around and explore things in the house. Since they have a keen sense of smell, an ‘interesting’ scent might urge them to track it to its source. They are always alert, watchful and wary of their surroundings, which make them useful for the detection of narcotics as well as other police works.
Training a Cavador is something that you will find enjoyable. As an intelligent breed, it accepts and obeys your instructions promptly and can learn to do some tricks. Obedience classes and socialization training during puppyhood are necessary to curb its chasing or hunting instincts.
Serve your pet 1.5-2.5 cups of dry kibble daily but divide it into two meals.
