CANE CORSO ITALIAN MASTIFF
WHY A CANE CORSO ?
THE BREED CANE CORSO
My name is Juanma Morato from Corsos de X-man Barcelona.
There are very few people, who can speak about cane corso, No the wikipedia, or the great experts who do not even have a cane corso.
To speak of cane corso, we must have lived it, savored it, with its great experiences, with the bad ones that there are also.
Today I will talk about the Cane Corso, the best breed in the world.
I’ve been breeding them for many many years , it’s no because I have World Champions cane corso, that’s blah, blah, blah. not important
As I have explained at other times Cane Corso is a large breed dog categorized as molosso, I would define it as the best guardian for the family.
The Cane Corso is originally from Italy and in the past life, the Cane Corso was used for guarding, the cane corso watched the cattle in the old farmhouses of Italy, also often tied with chain to the tractors, which in Italy agricultural was one of the most precious assets.
Guard instinct is something innate and that they carry with them. The Cane Corso from its birth, shows a sociable and curious dog, wanting to know the world and wanting to discover.
I always take advantage of this age to stimulate Cane Corso’s desire for discovery and I try to motivate him with different training or training items for the Cane Corso puppy.
In order to achieve this motivation, I encourage you to play with balls or teethers that, in the growing season, is what they like the most.
This activity has a strong impact on the dog and the owner that many people do not know,
If you work and take care of the needs of your Cane Corso puppy, you are automatically activating the magic of the LINK.

From Cane corso I have a thousand anecdotes, one day I was at night strolling along Barcelona's beach, and I was going with X-man and talisman from the mirage of torrellas, I found an almost 7 or 8 people, with many bodka in the blood, and not with good intentions, my cane corso were uneasy, they went forward 3 meters and simply marked a bark, they are so awesome dogs that it did not take anything else, those people who do not very good intentions, they accelerated the pace and turned around to another place, saying, my mother, what a piece of dogs.
The link that takes place between Cane Corso and the owner, is incredible, a connection based on respect, attention, healing, necessity,
and other infinite attributes that he would never end up naming.
There are people who think that everything mentioned above are feelings that Cane Corso creates towards its owner, but from experience I know that it is reciprocal. When a Cane Corso chooses his owner, he is firmly loyal to him and accompanies him everywhere and is on the lookout for him at all times.
The Cane Corso is able to know how its owner feels and I would even dare to say that sometimes I get the feeling that they are able to perceive how I feel and act according to it.
The Cane Corso is a very special dog and very meaningful for that reason its education must be supported on a base of emotional balance,
obviously with application of limits and norms, but without forgetting the respect and the love.
The education and training of your Cane Corso is a continuous phase that begins before the puppy arrives at your house.
My role as a breeder is to start socialization since the birth of my Cane Corsos,
but when I give a Cane Corso puppy the responsibility falls on you. It is your education and your socialization that will make you in the future you can enjoy your Cane Corso puppy, because being a dog considered big breed there are many handicaps that you can find if you do not do your job well. It is necessary to stipulate norms, clear and short orders so that the communicative channel with your dog Cane Corso is easy to perceive and consequently the dog responds to what you have ordered.
Docile and affectionate with the owner, lover of the children and the family, if necessary he becomes a brave defender of the people,
of the house and of the property. It is easily trainable.
In the investigations carried out on the specific characteristics of the Corso, the combativeness, docility and sociability stand out;
everything together makes up what we know as “balanced dog” or “dog with an optimal nervous balance”.
This concept implies that the dog is aware of its own physical means and that for this same reason it uses its strength only if it considers that its owner (family) or good (for example, the house, the car) is in danger. his surveillance and guard.
The moment you put a Cane Corso in your life you realize that when you thought you could no longer feel more love for something or someone,
Cane Corso brings out the best in you because so many things give you that from the first moment you have it with you an infinity of emotions and feelings are activated within you and you start to experience a roller coaster of love towards your dog, why do you see and you realize that the Cane Corso is the best friend you could have never chosen
From my point of view, I consider the Cane Corso the best breed in the world, very smart, I always say that almost too smart and very sentimental.
I have many dogs that live with me, since I am a breeder, but I could assure you that I know each one of them, because they all belong to the same race,
but each one has its character and way of being and could differentiate with closed eyes.
The Cane Corso is a dog with a lot of personality, so when people ask me for a puppy I like to know a little about them so they can offer the puppy that most matches their way of being or the kind of life they lead.
My job is not only to breed cane corso, but to select those specimens that can contribute the best of them, genetically and phenotypically, because I have always worked under the same rule, always delivering the best of your work because this will be the way in which the I can see and value how much I have tried, because now my puppies are the mirror of all my hard work.
I do not have clients, who pay me for a product, I have people who pay a new member of the family, where each of you have your story and many have told me and I know that when you decide to buy a Cane Corso puppy you are willing to share experiences and give love.
And it is your experiences and positive stories that drive me every day to want to improve and improve trying to have Cane Corso’s super puppy
and when I have it, I can offer it to you and you can reward me with your happiness by getting it ,
and that happiness is justified with photographs of you with the puppy. And then I will affirm what I supposed;
That once again, in some way, my work has served to bring happiness to some family.
To love your Cane Corsos how I love mine and only in this way will you know the true love spoken by fairy tales.
THE HEALTH OF CANE CORSO:
The Cane Corso is a very strong dog physically and enjoys very good health. Stoically endure the pain and do not complain almost never.
They are 20 times stronger to withstand pain than we are,
Sometimes you realize that they have something very serious at the end of the disease, they never or almost never complain.
The Cane Corso usually has very few health problems, it is a race that recovered in the 80s in Italy, and there are some problems that the race has not yet overcome.
One of the most common is the so-called ‘Cherry Eye’, which is the term used to refer to a prolapse of the gland of the canine nictitating membrane, known as the third eyelid, when the nictitating membrane prolapses and becomes visible. The ‘cherry eye’ may be more common in puppies, sometimes one in one eye and then the other.
there are corny cane lines more likely to have the cherry eye more than others,
It is very common when parents have the most droopy eyes.
Another problem that large breeds such as Cane Corso can suffer from is hip dysplasia, as there is a rapid increase in weight and body volume in its growth.
It is a malformation of the coxofemoral joint (union of the acetabulum of the hip and the femoral head); that can cause pain and even lameness in the animal that suffers it, and difficulty to sit or climb stairs. The age of presentation varies between 4 months in the most extreme cases and 12 months.
However, before 12 months you can perform the PennHip test where you can specify the probabilities for a puppy to develop dysplasia, but never diagnose it since it is not until 12 months when there is a sufficient development of them. The cases of hip dysplasia, in general, tend to be bilateral.
The presentation of hip dysplasia also involves environmental factors such as diet, intense physical exercise, especially at young ages, overweight and hormonal changes.
Thus, puppies will inherit from their parents (genetic load) a greater or lesser predisposition or vulnerability to develop dysplasia and, depending on their stage of growth (nutrition, exercise rate, growth rate …), they will manifest it in greater or smaller measure.
With the arrival of spring we must be careful and pay attention to the care of our pets. It is at this time when you can suffer different problems with parasites (internal or external), fleas, ticks ect.
especially if the walks that are made with our corso cane are in mountainous areas or if they are made trips to the field. The, lawn is a good crop for them.
There are necklaces and pipettes, we must change them, the pipettes are monthly to avoid flea and tick bites.
so that our cane corso have a good health, it is important the sport, the good feeding, the good walks, always without abusing much in the walks in the puppy’s time.
