A confident Cane Corso will be great with your kids and an unmatched protector against intruders. They are a very intelligent breed and need an owner who can take proper leadership. Extremely loyal, these Mastiffs will be a brave protector of both owner and property. Once you have one, you will never want to own any other breed.
Although the Cane Corso is a large breed with great strength, it has a long history as a guardian for children, now making it an excellent family pet. The Cane Corso is not aggressive by nature; however their appearance alone is a deterrent for any intruder. Unlike the other Mastiff breeds, there is little drooling and minimal shedding.
Cane Corso are considered to have an even, stable and calm temperament. They are easy to train and form a close attachment with their primary owner. Corsos tend to be a quiet breed and like nothing better than staying next to their owner all the time.
The Cane Corso. (Pronounced KAH-neh-KOR-soh in English) is a large Italian Mollosser. It is well Muscled and looks more athletic than most other mastiffs, tending less toward sheer bulk and more towards definition. Its ears are naturally dropped forward, but where legal, many breeders crop them so that the remaining stubs are equilateral triangles, standing upright. Most Corsos have docked tails as well. The standard calls for docking at the 4th vertebra, although often they are docked shorter; this is considered an eliminating fault under the Italian FCI 343 standard. Height ranges from an average of 22 to 27 inches, and weight ranges from an average of 80 to 110 pounds; with some dogs being smaller and some being larger.
Corsos appear in many coat colors: black, fawn, blue and formentino. Brindling of varying intensity is common on basic coat colors as well, creating tigrato (full brindle), black brindle, and blue brindle. Fawn also has a number of different expressions, ranging from the pale of a formentino, to ‘red’, to the more common beige color. In blue dogs, the nose can appear grey, but should be darker than the coat. In all other dogs, the nose should be black. White markings on the chest, toes and on the chin and nose are seen as well, with smaller white patches being preferable.
The Different Types of Mastiff Breeds In the World!
Hello, and welcome to Roman Empire Cane Corso dogs website! As the name suggests, we are a page that is dedicated to breeding and training of Cane Corsos, one of the many breeds of Mastiffs. However, that does not mean that we are neglecting other breeds as well. If you wish to be familiar with different types of Mastiffs, then here’s a list of stuff that can help you identify them. The list below will also talk about what kind of companion they are and how to care for each of them.
The Cane Corso, or ‘Italian Mastiff’, looks scary. They often have an elegant thin black coat with bright red eyes. Many would consider them devil dogs or pets of mobsters. This is supported by the fact that they are one of the strongest dog breeds in the world! Mutts can have other coats such as light-brown hides with white pelts and tend to be softer than their pure-bred counterpart.
Roman Empire’s main objective is to encourage people to see the other side of the Cane Corso. Yes, they look terrifying and they are, in fact, strong and agile. However, they are innately gentle and intelligent. They are easy to train and very protective of children. We wish people could see them for what they are and that is being the greatest family companion and bodyguard!
The Argentine Dogo, or ‘Argentinian Mastiff’, is also a great example of a guard dog. They are also muscular, strong, and intelligent. Perfect for hunters or just people who needed someone to watch their home. However, they need masters who are confident and consistent in training them.
Don’t worry, they do not tend to disrespect their owners. They just tend to be hostile towards strangers, especially other dogs walking near their (or your) territory. The master needs to be seen as a powerful authority who can stop them when they are getting frisky. They tend to have a thin white coat but mutts can have spots and other patterns.
The Brazilian Mastiff is big and has wrinkly, loose skins unlike the first two dogs on this list. They do also have a thin coating but their colour can seem dirty. They are also very aggressive and powerful, but they are not as agile as the Cane Corso. However, they are famous for their ability to track so they are also nice companions for hunters.
Due to their aggressive nature, it is not wise to adopt a full-grown Brazilian Mastiff for a family with children. They are also wary of strangers so they make good guard dogs, but terrible hosts for guests. If the family needs to keep one as a pet for their children, they need to try with a puppy, first and let them socialize as often as they can.
Bulldog and Mastiff are both stereotyped as aggressive dogs, but this breed is typically aloof. They are lazy, stubborn, and not easily angered. In a way, they make the perfect pet for people who do not want to live an active lifestyle. They have a thin but beautiful coat that needs minimal grooming. They’re also great with kids but they tend to be more responsive (in a good way) to children they’ve known since they were puppies.
The Bullmastiff is still strong and agile if it tries. Males tend to be territorial against other dogs, too. However, they’re just grumpy to those they don’t see as a threat.
The English Mastiff is the type of dog that is perfect for the family with no experience raising a dog. They are huge but not muscular. Their bodies tend to be soft and huggable like a pillow which is perfect because this breed tends to love affection! Their coat is furry but can be easy to groom.
English Mastiffs do tend to drool because of the way their mouth is shaped. It would be wise to keep them away from pillows, bed, and the couch. They also can’t handle hot weather so their new home should have an air conditioner that is open throughout the summer.
The Bordeaux Mastiff, or ‘French Mastiff’, are often known for being calm and patient with their masters. However, they are aggressive towards strangers. They’re not big so they are easy to control with a leash or by carrying them by the arms. This can be fixed by letting them socialize with children and other animals. Even if they don’t know the individual, they can be calm around creatures that they understand.
Their coat is thin and gives off a nice shine of amber or tangerine. They also drool and they snore loudly. This is seen as cute by many but not by some. They’re not easy to tame so the master needs to be an experienced trainer.
Despite looking like an effective hunting dog, the great day, or ‘German Mastiff’, is simply one big puppy. Unlike the other Mastiffs, they are always playful and cheerful so they are great with kids and less experienced trainers. They are often unaware of their size so they will always try to sit on their master’s lap if they used to do that as a puppy.
They have a thin coating that is often shiny but can also be murky. Despite their playful nature, they are indoor pets who don’t need many playtimes. They also have an innate heart condition which becomes apparent during adulthood.
Unlike the other dogs on this list, the Neapolitan Mastiff is a very cautious creature. They are alert when it comes to strangers and judging of those they knew but never loved. They need to be thoroughly socialized with children and the master to become loyal. They have a very wrinkly body and thin, shiny coating.
Finally! It is time to introduce the first furry baby! The Pyrenean Mastiff has a heavy coat and a big body. This body type is caused by their nature to wander around the mountains. They are perfect companions for hikers but terrible pets in urban areas. They tend to wander on their own so keep them on a leash. Timid or light owners might end up getting dragged. Despite these, they are very loving and loyal.
The Spanish Mastiff is among the most territorial dogs in the world. They are huge, strong, and prone to barking. However, they are not aggressive, just protective. They are better suited for livestock owners because they tend to patrol instead of wander, lounge, or play. They are not great companions for children but they are wonderful partners for ranchers.
The Tibetan Mastiff, as the name suggests, are built to live in extremely cold conditions. That means they can’t be comfortable in urban settings or tropical environments. Their coat is thick and often black. They are powerful and alert enough to serve as livestock protectors or hunting partners. They can also be good with children they developed a bond with.
The CCanary Mastiff is also known as the ‘Canary Catch Dog’. They were originally raised to guard livestock but their playful and gentle nature makes them good around kids. They have a muscular build and thin coat that looks dirty. They need to socialize early because they tend to be distrusting towards strangers and acquaintances during adulthood.
Like most Mastiffs, the Japanese Mastiff, or ‘Tosa’, are bred for dogfighting. However, they are the less fortunate breed because their adoption and breeding are currently restricted by law as they are classified as a ‘dangerous breed’. They have slim, yet athletic bodies with short coats. Despite this, they are known to be gentle and protective if raised in a loving environment.
Aside from having a history as a fighting breed, the Alangu Mastiff was also used in wars by Pakistani and Indian military. They have short, white coats and toned bodies that allow them to be more agile. They are great with kids as they can be protective without being aggressive. They also tend to be dominant and independent so the trainer needs to compete for superiority.
South African Mastiff
The South African Mastiff, or ‘Boerboel’, also has a history of being a fighting breed, but its friendly face and huggable body don’t show any trace of that. They are also very playful and cheerful around people they recognize but they tend to be alert near strangers without being aggressive. They have a short tan coat that needs minimal grooming but they shed a lot. They also need regular exercise but that can be easy because they can play with other dogs.
The Kangal, or ‘Kangal Shepherd Dog’, is one of those breeds that has been featured in movies. They’re huge and protective. They are independent so they can wander around without frantically looking for its master. However, it can be sensitive to potential threats. They have thick, creamy fur but a dark-brown face and ears.
