Are Cane Corso easy to train? Yes, Cane Corso is easy to train. They are very intelligent dogs which make the training sessions easy for their owners. However, these large smart dogs need to know their place in the pack and who to look for direction and guidance. Without this, the Cane Corso will quickly take on a more dominant role making them a lot harder to live with.

I cannot stress enough the importance of early socialization with the Cane Corso. Their training has to start early and be consistent throughout their lives to prevent them from showing a more dominant side to their natures.

However, in the right hands with the correct amount of training and socialization, the Cane Corso will grow up to be an obedient mature dog that’s a pleasure to have around. 

While training your Cane Corso, make sure to use positive reinforcement. The Cane Corso will respond appropriately to training if they know who is in charge. During the training sessions, the Cane Corso will tend to test the waters to see who is in charge and see if there is room for negotiations.

Training the Cane Corso can be fast and easy because they pick up things very quickly. However, your skills and ability as a trainer will determine how quickly and easily the training sessions will be. The Cane Corso will make a close bond and connection to the owner and will perform tasks in a loving manner.

The training of the Cane Corso can be done by the owner, or by a professional trainer. If you decide to train your pet by yourself, make sure to start by building a solid and trusting foundation. Your relationship with the Cane Corso will only grow stronger in each training session.

Is a Cane Corso recommended for a family with children?

The Cane Corso is a large, muscular dog breed that was originally bred in Italy for hunting and guarding. The Cane Corso is known for being an intelligent, loyal, and protective dog breed. While the Cane Corso can make a great family pet, they are not recommended for families with small children.

This is because the Cane Corso has a strong prey drive and may mistake small children for prey if not properly trained and socialized. Families with older children who are able to understand how to interact with the Cane Corso safely will likely find this breed to be a loving and devoted family member.

Cane Corso’s are large, powerful dogs that were originally bred in Italy for hunting and guarding. Today, they’re still used for these purposes, but they’re also becoming increasingly popular as family pets. It’s important to socialize a Cane Corso from an early age. If they’re not properly socialized, they can be aggressive toward other animals and strangers.

Having a large dog around small children is not always a great idea. A Cane Corso can knock a small child by accident. However, that is not my biggest concern. Cane Corso are heavy droolers. Dogs often carry bacteria in their mouths that can cause infection. Their drool can contain high levels of enzymes that can irritate a child’s skin or eyes. Some Cane Corso’s may have allergies that can cause reactions in children who come into contact with their saliva.
