Best suited to live in a yard and sleep outside, the Alano can stand hot and cold temperatures, dryness and humidity with no problem. In the north of Spain, the humidity is extremely high. Good with Kids: This is a suitable breed for kids and is known to be playful, energetic, and affectionate around them. If they are not being used as working dogs, but are a family pet, you need to give them a lot of daily exercise. At least three walks daily, one of them a bit longer in an open space where they can run and play, ideally in the country. Low Maintenance: Grooming is only necessary once in a while to maintain upkeep. No record or history of health issues in the breed.
