Appearance of the Perdiguero Navarro
|The Pachon Navarro is a large breed of dog with great strength and stamina. The Pachon can weigh over 60 kilos and was developed to meet the need for an agile hunting companion. They have a rectangular body shape, a thick, muscular neck and short but sturdy legs. Most of this breed are short-haired, although some rare dogs have long silky hair. The skin can be quite loose around the neck, often resulting in a double chin. The Pachon Navarro has a solid boxy skull, broad forehead and expressive eyebrows. A long muzzle and hanging mouth give them a serious, almost somber air, but their soft, warm brown eyes immediately dispel this impression. Long, floppy ears sit low on their heads, but it's their noses that set them apart. Most Pachons have a double nose. This nose appears to be a normal nose, but has two large, distinct nostrils separated by a strip of skin that divides the nose. It is claimed that this nose made them superior hunting dogs, but this remains to be proven. They come in various colors ranging from black and white, brown and white, dark brown (liver) and white, and rich orange and white. They may also have freckles on their coats. Noble and serious dogs, they are devoted and loyal companions and excellent hunting dogs.
Temperament of the Perdiguero Navarro
|The Pachon Navarro is a gentle, gentle dog, devoted to its family and master. They like to be active, and large, open spaces suit this dog, giving it plenty of room to explore. Apartment living is not for them, as there's not enough room for this big, active dog. The Pachon is well suited to their purpose as a hunting dog. They have the determination and patience needed to hunt game and birds, but are obedient and loyal to their master. Daily exercise is important for this dog. They need to get out and do something, not just laze around on a terrace, although they will let themselves go if the opportunity arises. Although they have a somber appearance, Pachons are happy, playful dogs. They'll take part in family games and enjoy fetching and playing rope or other games. Don't lose your muscles, this dog is a good player for you in a game that requires strength. The Pachon Navarro is a devoted pet and will sulk if left outside. They want to be inside with you and the family because that's where they believe they belong, part of your pack. Adorable as puppies, they grow into beautiful, mature dogs with great natures and loving personalities.
Needs and activities of the Perdiguero Navarro
|These unique Spanish dogs are renowned for their ability to hunt small game and birds. They love open spaces and do best in a home with plenty of room to move around. Apartments can't provide this space and, although the Pachon Navarro is adaptable, it's not fair to confine them so much. They like to be busy and need plenty of daily exercise to stay healthy. They are closely bonded to their family and are affectionate and playful at home. Games where they have to follow and find an object would be perfect for this dog, as would long walks along the beach or country road. Although they're a big, sturdy dog, they're kind and gentle with children and protect them although they're not aggressive. Keep them on a leash when out and about, as a newly scented trail could lead them astray. Pachon Navarro respond well to training, as they are both intelligent and eager to please. They mix well with other people and dogs, and are hard workers who will serve their owners well.
Maintenance of the Perdiguero Navarro
|Pachons Navarro are considered low-maintenance, requiring only a weekly brushing and perhaps a wipe with a damp cloth to give them a dapper appearance. Brushing will remove hair and dirt, or help during those moments when they lose their coat. If you bathe your Pachon Navarro, a mild dog shampoo will be gentler on the skin than a human product. With long, floppy ears, you'll need to check the inside frequently and gently wipe the inner ear to avoid inflammation from dirt and debris. Also, when brushing, don't forget to check for fleas, to which this dog is highly exposed. Staying on top of this will prevent health problems. Finally, check his eyes to make sure they don't hurt, brush his teeth 2-3 times a week, trim his nails and your Pachon Navarro is ready for action.
