quick facts

  • With great athletic prowess, the Cunucu requires significant exercise. A bored Cunucu will be bad news for all parties involved. It is suggested that your pup receive at least an hour of exercise per day.

  • Cunucus are smart and respond quite well to basic training! Do yourselves and your dog a favor and start training early. It is one of the absolute best things you can do. 

  • The breed is remarkable at adapting to different climates; however, if your Cunucu is experiencing cold weather for the first time, make sure to get him or her a coat, so that your pup can slowly ease into life away from the beach!
