Overview
The Cane Corso Mastiff is believed to have descended from the old Roman war dogs, Canis Pugnax. They were highly valued by hunters and farmers because of their immense power, loyalty, speed, courage, and willingness to work. Throughout the Middle Ages, these dogs were terrific hunters and wonderful bull baiters. The Cane Corso Mastiff today is still used on farms and hunting purposes. This breed is very powerful and sturdy giving him a bad reputation of being aggressive.
Character
The Cane Corso Mastiff is somewhat fearless and is very devoted. Due to the power of this breed, he is not recommended for everyone but does make a lovely companion given the right training and socialization. This breed is a fearless family protector but does make a wonderful companion given the right environment. The Cane Corso Mastiff has a very balanced temperament, and despite his size and all around appearance, makes a great family pet.
Temperament
Aloof around strangers, protective, and loyal, this breed does make a good companion. The Cane Corso Mastiff does make a lovely companion, but should not be left unsupervised around children due to his sheer size and power. He is very dependable around children in his family, but can be protective around others. The Cane Corso Mastiff can live in peace with cats and other dogs however should not be trusted around very small animals.
Care
The Cane Corso Mastiff is a very light shedder making grooming very simple. A wipe down with a damp cloth and occasional brushing and/or combing with a firm bristle or rubber brush should be sufficient. The Cane Corso Mastiff requires minimal grooming, although around the mouth should be cleaned regularly as this breed has the tendency to drool quite a bit. The eyes should also require care professionally as they are very droopy which can cause irritation.
Coat
The Cane Corso Mastiff has a very short, smooth and dense coat that should be harsh to the touch, and somewhat coarse. The coat should remain shiny, however should never be silky. The hair should never be smooth, but be very dense, rough, and shiny. This breed sheds little hair so removing it should be fairly simple using a specially designer rubber glove.
Training
The Cane Corso Mastiff is not recommended for the average handler. He is very powerful and can be dominant if not in the right home. The handler should always remain firm and consistent. A variety of training methods work best with this somewhat willful breed. A dominant handler is a must. The Cane Corso Mastiff is very trainable being agile and intelligent. He is very responsive to training, however obedience classes are recommended at an early stage in life.
Activity
The Cane Corso Mastiff needs lots of exercise to stay healthy and active. This breed requires a fenced in yard to maintain his powerful muscles and immense strength. The Cane Corso Mastiff is an ideal jogging companion and loves to go on long hikes with his master. This breed requires at least 90 minutes of exercise per day, however more is recommended to keep his muscles in great shape.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Cane Corso Mastiff puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Raw bones, antlers, and the black kong filled with peanut butter is perfect for this breed. If you want the big, stocky head, then you need to work those jaw muscles! All three of the things mentioned above are perfect!

Are Cane Corso's good with kids and other dogs?

1 Comment

Anonymous

The Cane Corso is good with children as long as the dog grew up with children. However, the dog will be wary of strangers including a child's friends, so separation when friends are over is recommended. As for other dogs, the Cane Corso can be wary with strange dogs, but lots and lots of socialization is best with this breed to help the dog understand friend from foe.

I have a blue cane corso (male) and I also have a light colored British bulldog (female). The cane corso is 8 months old. My bulldog just had a litter of black puppies, is it possible for my cane corso to be the father as there are not many male dogs around ????

1 Comment

Yes it is possible for your Cane Corso to have been the sire of the litter. Please get your British Bulldog fixed once the puppies are fully weaned at 4 weeks old and your Cane Corso is old enough to be neutered now as well. Please have him neutered as well so avoid anymore accidental litters. Once a male dog has mated once, his brain wants it again even worse when he smells a female in heat. He will do anything he can to get to a female in heat and be destructive if you can't get to her. It is safest and best to have him neutered as soon as possible.

You should contact a positive reinforcement trainer. They will be able to work with you and your dog using counter conditioning methods to help you dog view new people as a positive thing instead of a negative thing.

No dog should be an 'outside only' dog anymore. It is not fair to the dog. The Cane Corso is a friendly, family oriented dog. They need affection, exercise and mental stimulation.

It depends on the type of dog food you feed him

That is little. My Corso is 12 weeks & 3days old. Yesterday's Vet visit he weighed 34.1lbs. & 21.5lbs at his 9 week visit. I feed him Blue Buffalo Large Breed Puppy Food. Quality food for your pets is critical. Especially at such a young and growing age. Also choose a large breed specific food. It keeps the growth slow and steady which helps the bones and joints grow stronger. Good luck and don't be afraid to Google search any questions you may have in the future. Plenty of valuable info can be aquired.

Yes, Corso tails are docked. The length usually depends on the breed some longer some shorter. My Corso was done at 5 days old he is now 2yrs and it measures 5".

4TH Vertebrae is the AKC standard. They can be shorter (like a nub), but 4th vertebrae is about 1/3 of the tail. So the tail will seem longer then most breeds with docked tails.

The growth rate on a quality bred Corso should be anywhere from 6-10oz per day for the first 6-12 months. My pup at 9 weeks weighed 21.5lbs & at 12 weeks weighed 34.1lbs. A Large Breed food is the best choice. Keeps a slow steady growth for stronger bone/joint health. Blue Buffalo is what I use. You also should start with a quality Bloodline. Genetics will play a huge roll is size also. Good luck.

Looking into getting a puppy cane, i'm 19. Experience with pitbulls and labs I was looking into getting a cane within the next few weeks, maybe months. However, if i get a puppy now, socialize him daily, will he be okay with a puppy rottweiler in a few months? or a year or so? I love this breed and have been around them. But moving in with my boyfriend, he wants to get a rottweiler. I just need advice, help. ANYTHING. Need to do my research and research is done best by people who have experience.

I have a pit and have had 3 great corsos. the corsos are better behaved (generally), and easier to train. they are massively stronger than pits and bred to be guards, not companions or fighters. you have to work with them a lot to make sure they don't see every new person as a threat to you and your family. if they do see people that way, you won't be able to stop them from protecting you. In their dog-mind, it is all defense, from a human's mind, its being killed by a 130 pound dog. Just my 2 cents. i think they are the greatest dogs ever. They do have short lives, though, topping out around 8-10 years old due to size.

Not true about size of dog and life span. It's all about having good genetics and great care. My English Mastweiler was 30" at shoulder and weighed 175lbs. He was almost 11 years old and succumb to cancer of his spleen. Other than that my Vet said he was in great health. I gave him 3 Flavocin tablets per day for joint health. Amazing stuff in my opinion. I'm getting a new pup in a few days. Cane Corso and I plan on giving him these same tablets. This time I will have a yearly ultrasound done once he is a few years old to have a chance to catch any sign of a tumor early. If caught early it can be removed and the pet will live a happy healthy life. FYI It is a common issue in larger breeds. If a$250 test could save my loving pet why not. Good luck to all.

I have experience with both breeds (Corso & English bulldog), it is my personal experience that the English bulldog is more likely to not get along with the Cane Corso. If you have socialized your corso well and he/she is ok with other dogs, the corso should accept the English bulldog. I am assuming the bulldog will be a puppy?

I don't think there is a breed called a King Corso. It looks like either the breeder is called King, thus King's Corso, or someone misunderstood the word Cane as 'cain'. It is an Italian word pronounced 'ca-nay'. Hope that helps.

Sign of cancer. Just lost my dog from this same sort of issue. Loss of appetite too I'm sure. By the time symptoms show its too late. I'm sorry. If anyone has these issues...contact your Vet immediately. A yearly ultrasound is they only way it can be caught early enough to find this and make the pet have a chance. These are symptoms of internal bleeding from the cancerous tumor. My dog had it on his spleen. 75% malignant cancer. Hope this helps in the future.

Can a full breed cane corso have a white patch on his nose

2 Comments

Anonymous

Acceptable colors for the Cane Corso are black, lighter and darker shades of gray, lighter and darker shades of fawn, and red. Brindling is allowed on all of these colors. Solid fawn and red, including lighter and darker shades have a black or gray mask; it does not go beyond the eyes. There may be a white patch on the chest, throat, chin, backs of the pasterns, and on the toes. Disqualification: Any color with marking pattern as seen in black and tan breeds.

Yes they can though it is not desirable. I believe it may be a disqualification or at least a fault in the show ring. But that does not mean the dog is not pure Corso.

It is common in the mastiff breeds. As they grow so does the skin around the eyes and causing the eyelids to curl inward causing irritation, drainage and infection. I just had both eyes of my corso done and his eyes are beautiful, they stay open, are bright and I really think it has greatly improved his sight. As before he kept his eyes closed quite offer. I'm sure because they hurt and constantly irritated. Like us having allergies all the time.

In fact, if we walk and there is anything like a bag, or a piece of food on the ground in the middle of the side walk he will flip out and try to run away. I wanted to buy this particular breed because they are docile, and also because I am a single girl living in my condo alone and would like to have a bit of security if needed. There have been a few times where he should have exhibited protective behaviour like at night when we are walking and have been approached, but instead he is scared. Will he ever grow out of this? I have trained him properly; i:e obedience training. He listens, but it's exhausting always having to cater to his insecurities when we are outside. Oh, and when someone knocks on the door and comes in that we don't know, he is incredibly sociable. I tell him to go to his bed when he tries to do this. I don't know what to do anymore.

Got my corso at 8 weeks, he was exactly the same way. He is now 2 1/2 and with lots of socialization and introduction to new surrondings he should become confident. And to the answer that large dogs arent for women, that is untrue, im 106lb. 5'2" and my Corso weighs in at 157. You need to teach your dog whos the dominate.

It is important to keep in mind that every corso has different temperments. Since yours is still a puppy you need to be patient, all puppies are social and playful with anyone who will pay attention to them! Between 6-8 months puppies can go through a "fear stage" where they are scared of everything! my corso was the same way with unknown objects and sounds you need to make sure you don't baby him as it will just make it worse. Just reassure him by acting like everything is ok, if you're calm he will be calm as well. As for the protectiveness that instinct will come, as puppies corsos are quite friendly unless improperly socialized and trained. You don't want a corso that is overly protective as they can easily over power many adults when they are full grown but they do become more wary as they get older and less playful. My corsos show the same fear behaviour at night as yours is. Now he is alot more wary, he doesn't like people coming up behind him. Give your puppy time

I have a Cane corso male who is 6 mths old and he is TERRIFIED of everything and everyone!! If someone comes into my home he will bark but do so from under the bed. When walking, if he hears a noise he will attempt to crawl under the closest vehicle. ONe lady mentioned a bag... we had one blow by and OMG, the dog off and I found him under a van shaking. I felt horrible for him and the was the last time we were outside without a leash (my bad). I too am a single woman living in Toronto and wanted a dog for protection and at this point it is me protecting and reassuring him. I can only hope he grows out of his insecurities.

I also have a 4 month old cane corso, and she is extremely protective of me. Especially at nights, when I walk her, if she notices anything or anyone out of the ordinary, she barks, and she barks really bad! Like a fully grown adult dog, and scares the hell out of people around her. She has a very deep and powerful bark. I just wonder how her barking will become when she gets older, she is only 4 months now! She is only friendly with people that I know and that she has seen before, like our neighbors who pet her. I think you shouldn't worry about him not being protective at this age, because from what I heard and I did read/research a lot about this breed, cane corso's become protective as they grow older and reach maturity, which is 2,5 years of age with females, and 3 years of age with males. It's better to have a docile and calm dog than an aggressive one. He will become protective as he grows, you don't need to worry about it. Always be calm and patient and gentle with him.

He is still a puppy and being a puppy. You shouldn't expect any kind of protectiveness from him until he reaches maturity, which is 3 years of age for male cane corsos. He will grow out of this, and be protective, don't worry, just continue to be very patient and calm and gentle with him. It's much better to have a friendly dog than to have an overprotective aggressive one. My female cane corso is only 4 months old, and I don't want or expect her to protect me, it's my job to protect her. If you really need protection, I would recommend you to get a spray or a gun for the time being, until he grows, but even then, no dog can protect you from a bad guy with evil intentions who has a gun!

My Cane Corso boy I just lost was 9 yrs old and when he was a pup he was a bit jumpy, always happy great with ppl amd dog. Ppl could approach me at night or dAy and never thought twice about it and was like I guess he trusting but 2 times he showed me that if need be he's there. Once a guy tried to sneak up on me I had no idea he started freaking out and the guy ran for his life and he was holding a knife so he saved me from being robbed or worse. Another time I let him into my apartment not knowing a stranger was there he pinned him to the corner amd wouldn't let him move until I said it was ok Just remember 7 month is young I noticed a huge change around 18 months don't give up these dogs are just amazing

We have 6.5 months old male Cane Corso puppy. He has been socialized a lot since he was 11 weeks old when we got him, and he is very affectionate with us and friendly with other people/dogs. But if he sees shadow, unusual noise or suspicious cars, he starts growling or makes 'woof' noise, then eventually he starts barking and even howl, unless we say "It's OK". BUT IT ONLY STARTED ABOUT A MONTH AGO. Until then, he would not bark at all on his own. But I did teach him a command "watch 'em" with hand gesture using treats, so when I give him that command, he is vocal. You can teach your puppy the same command. Mine learned it in the first session. We also have a friend who own adult male Corso, and he has a very sweet easygoing temperament. He was a jumpy puppy, and how he is an adult, and still a little jumpy, but more protective and step up when needed. So, don't give up. Also, make sure you socialize a lot with good people, so your pup can learn "good" people vs. "bad" people vibe.

My cane corso is 120lb, female, 15 months old currently, She responded the same way your pups did but now she is a well socialized studdette. Please understand your pups are pups. They look to us to feed them, love them and protect them. You must be an assured Alpha leader of the pack. Please be patient with them and continue to teach and love them and when they mature they will respond accordingly. My pup frustrated me with her fear, but I keep reassuring her, then socialized her and placed her in all types of situations. Now that she is older and well socialized when we are running or walking she is on alert, no one can run close to me. She follows them until they pass us and looks back to ensure they are not coming back. What a change in her personality. We don't have to teach them what they already know "Protect the pack leader". Socialize, socialize, socialize and they will know the difference between friend and foe.

At the sheer sound of her cry, Apollo began barking unstoppable. We initially, brought some clothing home to Apollo to get used to her scent prior to bringing her home from the hospital. However, when Apollo saw my daughter, he got to an aggressive stance and attempted to get at her. This occurred when my daughter was in the harness that my husband wore and when she was in the play pen. Please help with alternative training we can do to get Apollo used to having the baby in the home and not appear aggressive.

This is normal because the dog does not have access to the baby to interact and smell it. I would suggest socializing your cane corso with older kids then slowly younger ones to build his trust around kids and babies. Then have your dog meet the baby in a neutral zone but keep them at a distance and when your dog barks at the baby firmly say no and have your dog submisively sit then call the down command in a way that your dog understands that even if he is stronger he will never be aloud to scare the baby and that the baby is under your protection. Be calm but have a non agressive but extremly firm voice telling him you mean business.

After socializing your dogs with kids and gradually younger ones. Have your cane corso meet the baby in a neutral area and keep him on a leash and when he barks tell him to go in the sit then down position be calm non agressive but extremly firm and let him know that in no way he will be able aloud to hurt the baby and that the baby in one of your own. The dog will understand that he will need to protect the baby and he will later bark at any strangers aproaching his baby.

Make sure you praise your cane corso when he stops barking at the baby.

In regards to a large breed dog vs a baby - do yourself a favor and find a new home for the dog. Research all the babys that have been killed or mauled by the family dog. Dogs are pack animals and your dog thinks he is the alpha and appears to not want any additions ti his pack. Is that a risk worth taking

When I brought home my newborn my male cane corso was wonderful with her. He is more protective of my children than anyone else in my home. Sounds like your dog has not been socialized properly and he needs proper training.

Will my male bullmastiff get along with a male cane corso?

That is a very vague question? How old are each of the dogs? Have either one had much socialization with other dogs? Will there be a supervised breaking in period? A general answer to this question is yes, both breeds have the ability to socialize well, it is up to how you approach the situation that will make the difference.

For a while depending on age, I have a now 2 yr old female cane corso and belive me I do nothing but big dogs. Any way when cane was 6months, bullmastiff start bullying her. They start fighting more and more mainly about attention. A cane will not back down and they won't forget. It got to the point she would wait until I turn my back and start fighting.

If we do what will be the best way to train them? Can certain training be done together or should they always train separately?

I currently have 4, 10 week old cane corso pups from my last litter, I have been working with each one individually and have always done so until they each learn the sit and stay command. If the pup has to many distractions you will most likely get frustrated and give up. Once each pup can obey well enough for you to have them both together, I recommend keeping them apart for training.

I have a 5 month old Cane Corso puppy, he has been a very avid learner and willing to please in most areas of training. However, I am a bit concerned with his activity level. He seems to be quite lazy and very slow-moving. When he plays with my German Shepherd puppy, he seems to be so much slower even though they are the same age. Is this normal?

Cane corsos are a mastiff type breed, and that being true they do not have boundless energy like a lab, or a golden or a shep. or a doberman. They were bred to chase wild boar at a steady even pace, or chase the bad guy off the property, and then go lay down till next time. This is what a true corso behavior should be!

What is the difference between a bull mastiff and a cane corso mastiff?

Cane Corsos are better in my opinion.. They are stronger, faster and are much better looking (When their ears arent cut off. They are a bit smaller but much more agile, protective, more of a guard dog and will do anything you want of it. Bull mastiffs have a biggger head and smaller paws
