Cane Corso Mastiffs are thought to be descended from Roman war dogs. These dogs were used by farmers and hunters alike for herding and tracking. They have great power and the innate skill to hunt and maneuver through different terrain. Their bodies withstand many weather changes and obstacles.


The Cane Corso Mastiff is practically made of muscle. They need plenty of exercise to maintain their strength. If you aren't able to keep up with this dog, then you may want to invest in a broad enclosure that lets the dog run freely. Be sure everything is well secured, as they can easily break loose.


The droopy skin of the Cane Corso Mastiff breed may cause irritation around the eyes, as well as excessive drooling. Other than that, this dog has barely any health weaknesses, and the only other thing that you may have to worry about is their grooming. The requirements for their grooming are quite minimal.


Cane Corso Mastiffs are often wrinkly in their puppy years, and as they reach adulthood, retains a good degree of those wrinkles. They are large, and their stretched faces make them look absolutely miserable and worried, however, the Cane Corso Mastiffs are typically rather happy, and are much too brave to be frightened.


Since their short coats shed so little, all that Cane Corso Mastiffs require is a light brushing every week or so and occasionally wiping them using a damp cloth to remove dirt and dander. Their coats come in black, brown, or red colors. Sometimes their coats will be a mix of two colors.


Cane Corso Mastiff dogs can be trusted with children and other pets, unless these pets are small and rodent like. The mastiffs' natural instincts to herd or hunt these animals may conflict with your desire to keep them alive. The Cane Corso is a truly dependable pet, though, and will act as the family's personal security guard.


Cane Corso Mastiff dogs are used to being in positions of dominance. They are smart and powerful, and if you let them, they will step in as the master in your dog/owner relationship. They will require a firm handler. When they are trained, they can become very devoted and loving to their trainer.
