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.

    Dog suddenly becomes obedient overnight. Is this common?

    Has anyone ever experienced their dog suddenly becoming submissive and obedient? The trigger for him was a brown paper bad that I was crumpling up (3 days ago), to throw away. It freaked him out, and ever since then, he's become very submissive to me. Its like he transformed into a model citizen. Before this incident he was always challenging me and everyone else in the house. Just curious if anyone else has experienced this.
