Typical Coloring

Cane Corsos are commonly black, black brindle, chestnut brindle, fawn, gray, gray brindle and red.





Noble, majestic animals, Cane Corsos are extremely protective of their owners and their owners’ property. They are generally docile unless their owners are threatened, and they are very smart dogs that are easy to train. They are suspicious of strangers.




Activity Level

Cane Corsos require a lot of exercise. Because of their origins as working dogs, they are happiest when they have some sort of active task to complete, such as hauling or fetching. The dogs can become destructive when they are bored, so it’s important to give them mental stimulation as well.
