The Cane Corso puppies in this video are playing with each other. It is rare to find videos of Cane Corso, puppies or adults. Cane Corso is an Italian Mastiff. This is a giant breed that can grow to 120 pounds. Hard to imagine that they were once THIS small.
He was bred to hunt big games and to guard properties, according to Vetstreet. His size alone would be intimidating to a potential intruder. If this is your first time owning a dog, you might want to choose another breed. And if you’ve only had breeds such as Retrievers or Spaniels or toy dogs, this may not be a fit for you.
Characteristics of a Cane Corso
Besides being large and powerful, the intelligent Cane Corso is an active and headstrong person. Someone who is consistent and firm can be a fit. But not someone who is forceful. This is the reason why if you want to be a dog parent for the first time, Cane Corso may not be as easy to train as say, a Poodle.
Socialize Cane Corso puppies early
Cane Corso loves his family. That doesn’t mean he is going to be affectionate. He wants to be near you, yet does not demand your attention or physical affection. Start socializing a Cane Corso as early as possible. Expose him to different people, sounds, sights, so he learns to discern what good guys feel like and who warrants his suspicion.
Enroll him in puppy kindergarten, then basic obedience class. It would be nice if the trainer understand the psychology of the Cane Corso. This is not a dog who likes to lie around and do nothing. Give him a job. Let him be your walking companion. Jog or walk with him at least a mile everyday, plus some training for about 20 minutes.
