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.

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

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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?

1 Comment

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.

Anonymous asked:
Would you recommend getting a Cane Corso Mastiff puppy and at what age? Is a 10 week old Cane Corso Mastiff puppy to old?

1 Comment

Recommending a breed of dog or a mix breed can't really happen if the person does not know your lifestyle. The age of the puppy is a perfect age to get him/her into a new home, so that is fine. But please note that the Cane Corso and the Mastiff breed both are breeds of dogs that need an experienced dog owner. They need large house and yard space and need an average of an hour of exercise a day. They also need extensive positive reinforcement training with a confident and firm but gentle handler. So please make sure you have done your research and are ready for such a large/powerful dog.

I have a 9-week old Cane Corso mix. What are some good teething toys for this kind of puppy?

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!
