The Cane Corso
A Loyal Family Guardian
The Cane Corso (Pronounced Kah Nay Corso) is a relatively new breed to Canada, as it did not appear in North America until 1988. It is a serious dog breed for a person who is serious about having a dog as a companion and who can provide them with the firm and loving guidance they need to become a great dog.
Give this dog a job. They’re unwilling to just lay around all day and will find their own work to do if you don’t provide it, daily walks or runs will suffice. If you have a farm or ranch, they will help you with the livestock otherwise, get them involved in dog sports such as agility, dock diving, nose work, obedience, tracking, or protection sports.
The Corso is one of many Mastiff- type dogs, developed in Italy and said to descend from Roman war dogs. They are more lightly built then their cousin the Neapolitan mastiff, and were bred to hunt game, guard property and be an all-around farmhand. Their work included rounding up pigs and cattle and helping to drive them to market. This breed is known as the family guardian, a one family dog, and are amazing with their children.
