Cane Corso breed


Does anyone have one? Looking at getting one and was looking for some first hand info. Figured this board would have the least amount of trolls. Tia

re: Cane Corso breed


Great dog. They are used as police dogs in Italy. I have a pretty badass picture of one on my phone I can post later. They are similar to any working dog in training and temperament. With proper training and association with other dogs they can be a great pet. They are huge and you will need to enforce your dominance early and often. They are related to the mastiff and share a lot of traits with the bull mastiff. Hope that helps a little

They are very expensive, like over a grand for a puppy

re: Cane Corso breed


I have one, and he is the best dog I've ever owned. Brief story, I am a cop and was working in narcotics. I was followed home by three guys I put in jail. So, I wanted a big, protective dog. I did a ton of research and got one. He is a big old lovable lap dog. Until he feels that one of us is threatened. Then he is a BEAST!!! He is 11 months old and weighs 115 pounds. Should round out about 150. He is a big Corso. Let me know if you would like to talk on the phone, or email. I would be happy to help with breeders or any other info you need.

As a baby:

re: Cane Corso breed


With me, and my family, he thinks he is a lap dog. He is a big old teddy bear. But, he is VERY protective of us. Especially my kids. My wife walks every day and takes him with her. He is very intimidating looking. But, the most impressive thing about him is his agility. My grand champion lab was never as athletic as he is.

My friends is the same. great breed, they become friends right away as long as master is happy. the one he studs, was 90lbs at 6months, he was the "platinum" color. his whole head used to take up the sliding rear window of my truck. They are scary as shite to people who are unfamilar with them

My uncle has one and as everyone else has stated, he is a great family dog and is great around kids, but if he feels you or someone in the family are threatened he will not back down. Great watch dogs. They really are big beautiful dogs. Especially, the brindle ones.

I second what LSUFootballFANATIC said about them being athletic, those motherfrickers can jump. Atleast, my uncles could.

re: Cane Corso breed


My cousin has two English Mastiffs, gigantic dogs, they are the biggest babies I've ever seen. They're twice the size of my catahoula and he intimidates the hell out of them.

If a Cane Corso was a human, it would look like Ron Perlman on Sons of Anarchy.

re: Cane Corso breed


Corso's aren't for most families. They're becoming really popular because they're BAMF'rs.

You need to really evaluate your lifestyle, your future, and your ability to care for the dog throughout it's life. These dogs aren't easy to give away when you get in a bind. You can't just drop off an adult Corso with friends for a week while you go to Cancun. You can forget about buddies just dropping by and coming on in anymore either.

They're tremendous dogs, and do exactly what they were bred and meant for. Protection and security.

re: Cane Corso breed


What do you do with all the dog shit, I would bet its like walking around a mine field in the backyard. My mind goes to the practical. Of course you would need to keep the shite around to see whose bones were in it, to solve the missing people crimes.

re: Cane Corso breed


This is something I didn't take into consideration with the catahoula. He's not able to hang out while we go on vacation and nobody really wants to watch your spastic moron of a canine.

re: Cane Corso breed


You are right about the shite. They eat A LOT and shite A LOT. I feed mine Blue Buffalo, a high quality food, with almost no fillers. He really doesn't shite anymore than my lab did. Luckily, where I live I back up to a wetlands area, so I just let him run out there and handle it. If he is locked up in my yard (almost 2 acres) I just throw it out there too (with a shovel). That is one consideration, they need to get out and run. And be prepared for a big food bill. My eats 6 cups a day.

They are big dogs and can be hard to handle. If you don't have a dominant, commanding presence, don't get one. He will end up running over you and doing anything he wants. That is a very dangerous position to be in with a 120-150 pound dog. Don't be fooled either, the females are just as protective and dominant as the males.

Bump for anyone who knows a breeder in LA, MS or TX. I have 10 acres so the room won't be a problem. I have raised several hounds in the past, just want something different this time.
