Cane Corso... Need information

My boyfriend and I are thinking about owning a cane corso and we need to find some good information on the breed, or anybody that has one that could give us some information. Someone told us that they are not good dogs to have if you have children. I really dont believe this but hey i dont know much about the breed soo if anyone could give me or lead me to some good information about the breed that would be awsome !

Oh dear.

Honestly?

Truly, I can't believe this. I hate to sound like I'm coming down on you like a ton of bricks, but you've had so many issues, so much drama, already, about your Doberman puppy--who is NOT raised and trained yet. Who you've seriously considered rehoming, who your boyfriend has harmed, who you've worried over with the children, who you've had money issues on affording vet care, etc, etc.

Why in the world would you be considering adding any second dog, much less a complicated working mastiff breed like a Corso?

Were not getting a Cane Corso anytime soon, we want to do research on the breed and get as much information as possible and to find a good breeder. I never said were getting one asap or anything. And i dont understand where you got some of your information from... When have i ever said i wanted to rehome my dobe pup? I have never worried about my pup with his child. My pup has jumped up on my boyfriends kid and knocked him down when people werent paying attention. Otherwise my dog is very good with his kid. And also, where have i ever said that i have had money issues in affording vet care for my dog? Your assuming quite a lot, and you know what they say about when you assume things......

Totally based on your past threads, Lette.

I never said your pup was bad with kids, btw, I said you all had worried about it.

Are you now saying your boyfriend never harmed the puppy?

I'm glad to hear this Corso idea is at least a "distant proposition."

*Our* puppy is 3 months old, very hyper and loves to jump and play like any puppy. My boyfriend has a year and a half year old son and no one was watching the kid and the puppy at that particular second and the puppy had jumped up on my boyfriends kid and knocked him over pretty hard. My boyfriends mother went to smack the dog on the ass but he ran away and she tended to the kid. My boyfriend on the other hand flew off the handle and grabed the puppy and purposley hurt him. I of course shot my mouth off to my boyfriend and told him its not right to hurt a puppy because he doesnt know better and that you have to watch the two when there around eachother because the puppy doesnt know any better etc. And my boyfriend just went on on how the kid is a human being not some stupid mut. (This is the first time my boyfriend has ever yelled at me in the whole time we`ve been dateing) He also said somthing along the lines of if the dog ever bites his kid..... and yeah i dont have to really finnish the sentence.


From here: https://www.dobermantalk.com/doberman...right-now.html

As for the money issues, that was mentioned by you several times, on all the posts about the prolonged diarrhea issues, the ear cropping threads, etc.

If you're still concerned I'm only referring to "assumptions," I can go look those up and quote you on those, as well.

I just really worry about how this will affect the child and the dogs involved--you did not specify in your original post this might be some time in the future--but even so, with the attitude your boyfriend has towards "stupid mutts," I'd really caution you about adding any more dogs to this already risky situation, whatever the time frame.

All of the Cane Corso that I have met have not been able to be around children or other dogs without having problems.

They are an extremely difficult breed to handle and need a huge time commitment. With kids and a dobe already in the house, I would say to pass on this breed.

Also, as is the same with a dobe, you can't use heavy handed training techniques or physical punishment (sounds like your BF might be familiar with) with a Corso. They will shut down and become agressive/fearful.

You wouldn't want to have a corso bite a kid out of fear/agression issues as that would be a severely damaged kid and a dog put to sleep because of your poor choices. Not saying this will happen, but from what I have seen personally I would NEVER have that type of breed around small children.

Some one already pointed out the very recent other Corso thread. If you trully want to learn more about the breed and locate a GOOD breeder, you really should come on over to the CCAA (Cane Corso Association of America) forum: CCAA Forums - Powered by vBulletin

We have lots of very good information there. We always seem to have some people coming on to the forum saying that they got a Corso puppy and they are having all these problems handling the dog. That inspired a very good thread about the Corso temperament and the first time owners: Corso Temperment and the first time owners - CCAA Forums
So many Corsi end up in shelters because people just don't heed the very appropriate "they are not for every one" warning.

Is there a reason why you want to consider adding a Corso? A corso pup can be just as much or even more work then a doberman pup. They can be a lot more dominant, more stubborn, need to be properly socialized and trained because they easily grow to be over 100lbs. They are not just good looking couch potato mastiffs. They can have very high prey drive, and really require an owner willing to put lots of time into training and socializing.

When it comes to kids, just like any large powerful breed they need to be raised with them, socialized, and trained to act appropriately. My dog can (and has) knock over an adult without meaning to, a small child could easily get very hurt just from being ran over. Again, training socializing... I'm not sure if I mentioned those two enough.

I understand your concern and where you are coming from but things have completely changed here in the home. My boyfriend has admitted he was in the wrong and i am helping to educate on how to discipline a pup properly, training.. etc. Our pup is coming along quite well now and is pretty well behaved. We are still learning and dont plan to add another addition until we know we can handle both dogs, and also afford both. I just simply want information on this breed and do extensive research the next time around before owning a dog. When we baught our dog i had only done minor research. I have always loved Dobermans and simply knew very little about the breed and about good reputable breeders, etc. If anything this site has taught me soo much about why you should go to reputable breeders, and its also has made me look at the breed in a whole different outlook. I have learned to respect this breed of dog and the breeders who take good extensive care of there dogs, health testing etc.

I understand that any dog can accidentally hurt or knock over a small child especially when not watched properly. We arnt looking to buy the dog any time soon, probably be best until my boyfriends son is older. Thank you for the site, it will help soo much so that we can actually learn about the breed. I know this site has helped me soo much, and i hope the link to the site you gave me can help me with all the questions ive had as much as this site has.

Awesome to read.

I'm glad that you are learning and growing with your puppy and that DT has played a role in your dog ownership education. Just remember that your pup is going to get worse before he gets better. lol, You (or me with my new girl)are not even close to doberteens yet!
