About the Cane Corso Dog

The Cane Corso, also known as the Cane di Macellaio, was bred in Italy during the 1600's to be used as a cattle driving dog.

Today these dogs are used for both companionship and security.

The Cane Corso and Intelligence

Cane Corso's are very intelligent and loyal dogs. They are very trainable dogs though they do require an owner with some experience because they can be willful at times. They are great with families and children and thrive on affection. They will protect their family when they need to and can be aggressive when strangers or other dogs are present. They are usually happiest when in the home with their owner and if outside will not wander far from the home. Early socialization and training is key with this breed.

Cane Corso Characteristics

When looking at a Cane Corso, words that come to mind are strong, brave and fierce looking. Their muzzle is broad and deep and flat across the top. Their ears are usually cropped and raise to a point atop the head. Their cheeks lay flat against their strong powerful jaw line. This breed has tight skin around the lips thus making them not drool as much as other breeds. Their powerful neck is slightly arched as it leads into the ever powerful body. Their legs are lean and muscular with compact paws and well arched toes. Their fur is short, thick and rough to the touch. The most common colors of this dog are black, and various shades of gray and fawn. White patches are acceptable on the chest, feet and the nose.

Cane Corso Health Concerns

A relatively healthy dog, the Cane Corso has problems with dysplasia.

Choosing a Cane Corso

This breed is for those who are very athletic and love to jog. It will do the best in a single pet household. They can do well in apartment with enough exercise and if they need to be outside they will be fine with sufficient shelter.
