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.

Does your Cane Corso Mastiff bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Cane Corso Mastiff puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

I have just adopted a Cane Corso from a shelter that was picked up as a stray and is approximately 2-4 years old. He is a very loving boy and seems to have bonded with me already. My girlfriend is moving in next month and has two cats 8 and one-year-old. He seemed to ignore the cats at the shelter. Besides introducing them with the cats in the crate and him on a leash is there anything else I can do to ease him into his new roommates?

First off, thank you for adopting your new fur-baby. Start swapping blankets, so that both the dog and the cats get used to each other's scent before your girlfriend moves in. Also, allow the cats to adjust to their new home in a room with a closed door for at least 3 - 5 days before letting them out of the room. Cats don't do well with change and need time to adjust to the biggest things first, which will be the move. Then, place a baby gate at the door and open it, allow the cats to leave the room when they want, but the baby gate will keep your dog from invading their space. After 1 - 2 weeks of having the baby gate up, you can move the cats things into the house. Make sure to have lots of high up spaces for the cats to go too so that they can watch the dog and household. Getting a couple cat tree's will give the cats and yourself piece of mind.

I would not recommend this dog with small children. Two reasons: Cane Corsos want to be in the center of what you're doing. They are most happy following you around. They generally form a very close bond with handler/owner. If you are not experienced at training dogs, especially big dogs, it is not recommended with children. They will bowl the baby over, often, most likely. Reputable Cane Corso breeders would not place a CC within a home with children. They would not be viscous but may snap if your baby is in its food. If you had to absolutely own one, always choose female. Females are generally less naughty in the house and gentler. Males are big clods. Well, that's my opinion, for what's worth. I've trained large dogs since 1985 to present. Rottweilers, rescued Pitbulls I was fostering, German Shepards, Huskies and most importantly owned 4 Cane Corsos. I wish you much luck and strongly recommend private training.

I highly recommend this dog to most. My Bella who actually had come from Italy was a fantastic companion. She was great with children, other pets, and people. She was easily trainable and was fantastic to be around. My Bella just passed away yesterday at the age of 13 going on 14 of old age and I miss her terribly. She was a brown/fawn brindle. The neighborhood children always came over and asked for Bella to come out and play and she loved my grandchildren laying on her and playing. I am hoping to find another female with docked tail, but full ears of the same color regardless of age, soon. I do not want the dog for breeding purposes as I would have her spayed.

Do you cut their ears? Also, I'd want to know how "hard" you breed bitches.

The ears of the Can Corso can be cropped by a licensed and specialized vet when the puppies are born. Same goes with docking of the tails, however; unless the dog is for show, many breeders are leaving the tails and ears natural so that the dogs looks do not stigma the dog as aggressive and scary. As per your second question, your terminology is confusing, sorry. But this breed goes into heat an average of every 6 - 9 months for females that are intact if that is what you are asking.

Cropping and docking are both done at 12 weeks. Later it is not recommended. Cropping and docking are amputations of those parts. As pups get older, it's pretty traumatic. As for breeding, please don't. And encourage others as well. They are a rare breed, very specific breeding to get the right temperament. Backyard breeding is what you would be doing. Unless you are purchasing champion sired, show quality or with official pedigree. It will show the breeding lines of its ancestors and champion titled dogs along the line, hopefully. Breeding a female is done starting around 3 years. That's when they have fully developed and can handle pregnancy and the toll it puts the dog through. Breeding is done every other year. Or at least a 12-month hiatus. They come into heat, as stated above, every 6 months. Back to back breeding is not the best for that dog. Also, she should be paired with a champion male. Inferior breeding will destroy this dog. They are not bred for fighting or aggression, ever. If bred indiscriminately, they will become a dangerous dog that is 110-115 lbs. you want the dog banned? That's what it will happen. They were saved from distinction in Italy because they were quite versatile and even made good pets. Breeders that carefully do their breeding and pedigrees to better the breed. Let them breed.

They look sweet with their ears not cropped. How do they get ear infections?

You have to make sure that they don't have dirt or anything in there so you have to clean their ears regularly or you can crop them which is easier but are way cuter when not cropped. My Corso hates his cropped ears he will constantly lick them.

Floppy eared dogs get ear infections the same way humans do. They get water or bacteria in their ears, they are not cleaned properly and the fold allows bacteria to grow rapidly. A dog with floppy ears should have their ears cleaned at least once a week. Twice a week is better.

How the heck is that he can lick his ears?? Lol!! I am pretty sure you were not meaning that 😀😀 But very fun to imagine!

My Cane Corso is fully blue with no white at all and brindle. Is this rare?

Blue is not considered a rare color, but it only comes when the blue gene is present in the dam or sire. It is not a color that just randomly pops in there.

Is it true that the Romans took the Cane Corso into battles and wars?

Anonymous

Possibly much before the were rescued from extinction. They are NOT bred to be aggressive at all. Good watch dogs but not for nefarious reasons.

I'm getting a Cane Corso Mastiff puppy in two weeks. Where should I place his crate? What is a good dog food for him?

You can place his crate anywhere in the house that you want. If he is in your room, you will be able to hear him when he needs to go outside to pee in the middle of the night. However, he will be able to hear you and may cry/whine because he'd rather be with you instead of in the crate. You should be feeding your puppy the food that the breeder has the puppies on for at least 2 weeks. After that, you can change it to a high-quality grain-free puppy food such as Orijen, Taste of the Wild, Merrick, Acana, Wild Callings, Natural Balance, etc.

Despite what you may hear about premium brands isn't necessarily better. You don't want food with a bunch of corn. The amount in the food of any ingredient is put in order of how much. More the ingredient, higher in the list. Hope that helps. Oh, research the food to be sure it is one of the best. Be careful, most often, you'll hear from associated things that it's better. It is highly advertisement even when not stated. Eucanuba is a excellent example. Blue buffalo is another. Meat should be near the top and "natural ingredients" do not have to be the natural ingredients of the food itself. Natural, like scraps of food from the slaughter house being various parts of the animal that are not prepared or deemed safe for human consumption, must be very low or none. Doubt you'll find that. All of the ingredients do not have to be listed individually. Also, food that has a lot of fillers may not be very good for him and often causes allergies. Wheat is an example. Dogs do not need it. Avoid wheat. Hope this helps. Research it yourself to be assured that I am a bit outdated on the topic. And you should never fully believe anything without checking reputable sources. Listed sources that are general statement blanket proof not specific, are highly suspect.
