Ideal in character, the Cane Corso is a reasonable and calm dog, showing moderate alertness to strangers and ready, if necessary, to defend the owner.
Most of these dogs are loyal and insanely loving pets. Often they accompany the owners on their heels even at home and suffer if they remain alone for a long time.
Cane Corso, especially males, are quite difficult to survive the formation period and actively probe the boundaries of what is permitted. It is important to socialize the puppy correctly, introduce it to other people and animals, so that it learns how to behave in society from motherhood.
Cane Corso clearly distinguishes those around him (both people and animals) into the “friend / foe” category. Due to their poise, they are rather complacent in character, but if they feel that they have invaded their borders, they instantly “turn on” the protective reaction. However, the Cane Corso has a rather impressive appearance, so outsiders rarely feel like petting a dog, which is some kind of "protection from the fool." These dogs control the situation and do not hesitate to let this suspicious person know.You can’t bribe or distract them. Protection of the family is the mission of this breed, and they fulfill their duty extremely selflessly.
The Cane Corso family gets along well with other animals, from dogs to hamsters. Of course, subject to proper education and socialization.
However, these days, due to the popularity of the breed, many unscrupulous breeders have appeared, which means cowardly aggressive Cane Corso. For this reason, you need to very carefully choose a future pet.
