What Is A Cane Corso?

The Cane Corso ("KAH-neh COR-soh") dog is an ancient Italian molosser and direct descendant of the Canis Pugnax. Its name derives from the Latin "cohors" that means guardian, protector. It has an athletic build and a solid, compact body with free-flowing movement. The combination of its stable character, the absolute devotion to its master and its adaptability to the environment are the reasons of the breed's popularity and success. Historically, the dog was used to guard property and cattle, to hunt large game and the protection of the family. It is a gentle, sociable dog and easily trained to perform the duties for which it has been bred. It is also known as the Cane Corso Italiano, Cane Corso Mastiff, Cane di Macellaio, Italian Mastiff, Sicilian Branchiero. The Cane Corso breed has worldwide FCI recognition and has been recognized by the AKC in the USA since July 1, 2010.

    "You might try being very low key with him i,e. Don't lavish him with love and petting about 15 minutes before you leave him. And when you get home don't get him all excited with petting and baby talk. Just be quiet and calm."

    Sue Richardson replied to Jeff's discussion more should be expected from a "working breed"
    "If you think a dog can connect pooping and being hosed, you should go to puppy kindergarten. YOU not your dog."
