Age To Start A Cane Corso In Agility

FWIW, I don’t recommend agility for a Cane Corso. It’s not the activity, it’s the exposure to other dogs and people in a competitive off-leash setting, combined with the guarding genetics that can really catch Cane Corso owners off-guard somewhere between their Cane Corso hitting 18 months and 3 years of age. Particularly the males.

Cane Corso Aggressive Towards Elderly People Only

Thor (Cane Corso) does not care for elderly people in the least though, and I, along with a couple of trainers, do not know why or what it is. You can usually tie a behavior towards a specific set of people towards things that happened in the past, but we got him at 12 weeks. He has always had a dislike of the elderly, (people 70 plus) and I am thrown by this.

Finding A Great Cane Corso Breeder And Avoiding Cane Corso And Other ‘Greeders’

The sad truth for North American companion dog owners and dogs is all that is required to be a dog breeder is the ability to distinguish between a male and a female dog and the vast majority know this and very little else. Some know a bit more but perhaps one in a hundred really do the job correctly. Even sadder is these cream of the crop breeders are being buried by the ‘greeders’ and deserve far more credit than they receive. I will do a more thorough ‘pawdcast’ on good breeding practices to look for when you’re looking for a dog if enough interest develops.

Here are some tips about finding a knowledgeable breeder and the sorts of things that mean it’s a knowledgeable breeder.

This video isn’t by any means intended to be a complete guide regarding finding a good breeder but it does provide some eye-opening considerations on why so few breeders should be breeding dogs along with a few tips on how to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Some breeds are mini-vans and some breeds are Ferraris. The Cane Corso is no-minivan. For those thinking of purchasing the breed or have one and are having some difficulties, this link leads to a considerable amount of free Q&A’s additional information on the Cane Corso breed specifically:

Threat To Kill A Dog Allegedly A Threat To Game Animals On An African Game Preserve

I live on a game reserve which has a bad record of security. The owner of the game doesn’t do anti-poaching patrols. He is threatening to kill my 18 months old dog (an Afrikaanus) which I have had for 6 months, claiming he is a hazard to his game.

Doberman Pinscher Puppy Using Owner Like A Chew Toy

I have a large 4-month-old male Doberman who is continually trying to challenge me. He wants to use me as a chew toy rather than his many toys. He is trying to alpha over me, and I need some advice on how to handle this as he’s really pushing me.
