The Cane Corso is a quiet dog with an intelligent mind and a loyal character. The Corso generally sticks to its family like glue. Their loyalty makes them excellent family dog and great watch dogs; in fact, the Cane Corso was originally bred as a guard dog.
The Cane Corso was not bred for fighting, but their size and tenacious temperament means that they will not hesitate to defend themselves, or their family, if attacked. Be sure to socialise your Corso with people and dogs from an early age. The Cane Corso may benefit from obedience training classes.
Their intelligence and strength of character means that Corsos sometimes challenge their owners, seeing how far they can push their boundaries. Gently but firmly discipline your dog: do not let him do whatever he pleases. Combine this with regular exercise, and you will have the pleasure of owning an incredibly loyal, affectionate, and clever family dog.
