Cane Corso Breed

The Cane Corso Mastiff breed began as an Italian farm dog and large game hunter. Farmers used the Cane Corso to herd cattle, pigs, and goats. They were also used to provide protection for livestock and property.

The Cane Corso Mastiff is strongly devoted to its family and usually wants to be close to their owners and will often follow them around the house or yard. They will give themselves completely to their owners, but will typically remain reserved and suspicious of strangers.

Cane Corsos require extensive socialization. Most Cane Corsos if not socialized properly can become nervous, fearful, overly cautious in new surroundings or with strangers. In the beginning, it is common for your Cane Corso to have separation anxiety because they develop such a rapid and strong attachment to their new families. The Cane Corso’s reserved and suspicious personality with strangers and different places can be greatly reduced or eliminated by proper and regular positive socialization. Cane Corsos are intelligent, willing to please, and easy to obedience train as well as to housebreak.

The Cane Corsos are a naturally protective of their families and property but are considered to be a quiet breed. They are not prone to barking without just causes. If you choose to buy from a breeder, it is imperative to research the breeders and make sure they are breeding dogs with even temperaments. The majority of Cane Corsos are affectionate and gentle with the family. Most Cane Corsos are very fond of children. They are tolerant and gentle with children in the family. Majority of Cane Corsos who are in healthy homes are loved by families with children.Despite their rugged exterior appearance Cane Corsos are a very sensitive breed, only fair and positive training methods should be used. Many Cane Corsos will sulk and become obviously upset for hours after being scolded by their owners. The Cane Corso is like a constant shadow always wanting to stay in close contact with their owners and love being large lap dogs. The Cane Corsos love and devotion are unequal by most any other breed of dog. Not only do they want to be part of the family but they need this kind of bond and interaction from their families. The Cane Corso truly suffers if they are living a life of isolation being kenneled or restricted to life outside away from its family. Cane Corsos form a very strong attachment to their families and are known to mourn over the loss of a loved one for the rest of their lives. Even Cane Corsos kenneled for short times while their owners are away may become stressed and depressed until they rejoin their family.

The Cane Corso’s goofy, gentle, and affectionate ways with their families are normally only seen by their families and close friends. This means the affectionate greeting you get will not be displayed on friendly company visiting. The well socialized Cane Corso will greet the visitor with reserved eagerness and affection. Cane Corso is not like a Retriever who will happily go with anyone who pays attention to them. They won’t just jump in a car for a ride with a stranger or play a game of fetch without their family. A Cane Corso may be very obedient to their family members but may normally refuse any orders given by non family. A Cane Corso would typically need to get used to such new things as a dog sitter or dog walker coming to their home. With proper management, socialization, & training the Cane Corso is very adaptive to the lifestyle of most families.

The Cane Corsos usually have a moderate energy level. They normally have a moderate – high activity level outdoors with low indoor activity level. Most Cane Corsos would enjoy a game of fetch, hiking, swimming, & any dog sports with their owners. The Cane Corso should get 10-20 minutes of exercise sessions twice daily, preferable off leash in a contained area. Many Cane Corsos have adjusted living with inactive families & going for leash walks in their neighborhoods 2-3 times daily. Keep in mind, the Cane Corso’s activity level varies. Most are moderate, some are inactive, while a few are high energy. Age is also a factor, once mature (around 3-4 yrs old) the energy level reduces. Some Cane Corsos are natural couch potatoes so it depends on the individual Cane Corso.

In the right home, the Cane Corso’s undying devotion & affection will capture your heart forever!
