01 They are a beautiful breed.

As a fiercely loyal breed, they have a reputation for doing whatever they can to please their owner family. This also makes them a very protective pet, which is instinctive of the Cane Corso breed. They are considered the ‘guardian’ dog and will keep your family safe.
03 They are responsive to training.
The Cane Corso breed is more observant of its owner and is typically more responsive to training than other mastiff breeds. Though they have a strong and dominant stature and are generally strong-willed in nature, the Cane Corso will listen to and respect a self-assured and steady owner. The importance here is to be consistent and firm in your training methods and to begin training at a very young age. Young pups train well and quickly, and once they learn something, they retain their behavior. If trained properly, the Cane Corso is eager to please, intellectual, and relaxed breed.
04 They are smart dogs that love to have a ‘job’.
Incredibly smart and alert, Cane Corsi love to have a responsibility, or “job.”. They need mental stimulation and regular training and exercise. This is not the type of dog you get and leave at home or in the yard all day long. They need to be entertained and kept active as much as possible. Just as humans do, Cane Corsi need a purpose. Give them that and they’ll be loyal to you forever.
05 They are the perfect pet for a natural leader.
Knowing and understanding your personality type is one of the best ways you can decide if the Cane Corso is the right pet for your home. If you are a natural leader with an assertive personality, chances are you would be a good fit for each other—so long as you are very comfortable around strong dog types. A Cane Corso requires a “boss”; They need to know you are in control and that you rule the roost. Otherwise, they will make their own rules! If you are a dominant personality that will take the time to love and train and lead your Cane Corso pup, then you will do just fine.
Ultimately, the Cane Corso breed is more than just a popular dog. They make for great pets with the right family. Here are some additional helpful tips for determining if the Cane Corso is the right pet for your family!
