Characterized by a high level of intelligence it is friendly to the members of their family, which is ready to go to the extent of sacrificing its life to protect its family, and is rightly called the ‘Ultimate Protector’. Being territorial, they are suspicious about strangers and do not go well with dogs of the same sex, but may get along well with a non-dominant breed, if raised together. Their loyal nature makes them keen to follow the master’s commands. The Canis Panther puppies are extremely playful, enjoying the company of kids.
Its high intelligence level makes training easy. Being a dominant breed, it is essential to give them obedience and leash training. Socialization training works best if begins during puppy days so that they get along well with strangers and children. The owner should be assertive enough to prevent the Canis Panther from being the ‘pack leader’.
This mighty dog needs to be properly fed to be kept healthy. High quality dog food, divided into proper meals, would be suitable for them.
