I have a 10-month-old Cane Corso. How do I get him to stop jumping on people and biting their clothes and shoes? Please help!!

While I’m always interested in helping people with their dogs via email in some cases I believe it is ill-advised. Where inquiries involve certain breeds such as the Cane Corso I would encourage you to seek local professional guidance. Admittedly this is easier said than done as even in the training world many do not understand the breed and advise clients inappropriately. The Cane Corso is a wonderful breed but can be quite dangerous when in the wrong hands. They are not pets so much as hobbies and many end up euthanized before they hit the age of 3, particularly the males when their well-meaning owners fail to acknowledge that they have chosen to purchase a Ferrari as opposed to a Mini-Van.
