Cane corso with kids

Is Cane Corso good with kids?

Having a dog is undoubtedly an excellent experience for children. Pets teach them not only the responsibility but also provide them with a lot of unforgettable moments. So, if you’ve already decided that a Cane Corso should become your new family member, here are the facts you need to know about this gorgeous breed.

Despite the fact Cane Corso is widely known as a robust and high-energy dog, it has incredibly strong guarding instincts toward his family. One of the main reasons why Cane Corsos are great pets for kids is that they are acting extremely loyal and protective. However, like any other dogs, they need to be properly socialized.

Cane Corso with kids = early socialization

If we take a look at the history of Cane Corsos, we will realize that they have always served as working and companion dogs. They used to spend time with their masters, so that’s why they are on a higher tendency to suffer from separation anxiety if left alone. It also should be noted that this breed is not the right choice for first-time owners. You need to act very carefully when you train a Cane Corso because it is a high energy dog of a firm and a bit stubborn personality.

So, to live with an obedient dog, you need to introduce it with other dogs, people, and noises properly. Early socialization is highly essential and will affect his/her friendly behavior towards kids. Despite the fact it acts friendly with all family members, Cane Corso requires serious training lessons. Otherwise, it could be challenging to correct his behavior later, and the only thing you’ll get is a dog with destructive and stubborn behavior. Therefore, we advise you to start with proper socialization from the early puppyhood.

Another key to own a Cane Corso that will act good with kids is going through a pack leader program. Every dog needs to have the leader of the pack, and in this case, it’s you. Once a dog has learned who his leader is, he will treat the master and his family members with respect.


Is Cane Corso aggressive with kids?

Indeed, this dog breed acts well with kids, especially if they grow up together. They are always eager to play and ready to clown around to make their youngest family members happy. And, for Cane Corsos it’s not surprising since they always search for some action that will help them release their pent-up energy.

On the other hand, it’s not advisable to leave kids with Corsos without supervision. Since toddles usually love to jump on dogs and pull their ears and tails, you shouldn’t allow them to do that to this breed. Otherwise, Cane Corso will be ready to get back at them. Anyone who treat them without respect won’t end up gloriously.

Is Cane Corso friendly with strangers?

In case you’re expecting guests, then you’d better put your four-legged friend in a crate. Since Cane Corsos are very territorial, they consider strangers a threat to their families. However, it also much depends on your family's lifestyle. It means that if your dog used to meet new people from his early puppyhood, then he’ll surely not act aggressively toward strangers.

Wrapping up

By bringing a Cane Corso to your family, you’ll have a lot of things to do. The first and most important task is to set boundaries from the start because you need to become his pack leader. The next step presents the early socialization and introducing a dog how the outside world works. So, before you decide to buy this pooch, our advice is to choose a reputable breeder. In that way, you’ll escape not only potential health issues but will also live with a safe and calm-tempered companion.
