Why my Cane Corso drooling so much?

If you own a Cane Corso, then you’re probably familiar with its tendency to drool. The slimy coating of slobber is definitely not thrilling to spot so that’s why you need to know how to deal with it, and what triggers the Cane Corso drooling.

What triggers a Cane Corso drooling?

Since Cane Corsos belong to large breeds with floppy jowls, it’s not surprising to see an enormous amount of saliva all over your living place. Unlike other dog breeds with shorter and tighter flews, pooches with long upper lips simply can’t control the drooling. Therefore, let’s discover what causes excess saliva production. 

Protection of opponents

Otherwise called hypersalivation, the Cane Corso drooling is also known as ptyalism. The purpose of having big jowls is to serve as protection. It might sound silly, however, since Cane Corsos are often used as family guardians, their long cheeks serve as a protection of opponents. Corso is known for its strong bite force, so his floppy cheeks help him to have enough maneuvering to bite back.

Excitement

The excess drooling in Cane Corsos is caused by a dog’s happiness, excitement, and panting. As we all know, in those moments, the dog’s mouth is usually opened, so the saliva goes out. Therefore, dog owners don’t need to be worried to see their pet drooling every time they come back home. It’s one of the ways to show you how much your pet is excited to see that you’ve arrived home.

Attractive scent

Another reason for Cane Corso's drooling is found in the scent of smell. Food activates the senses and prepares the brain for the meal, so when your four-legged friend excessively drools, then he probably smelled something tasty coming from your kitchen. 

When to become concerned about your Cane Corso drooling?

Unusual and smelly drooling can be caused by bacteria and collected tartar and plaque in their teeth. As one of the best solutions for dealing with tartar and plaque is to use dental sticks and chew toys. Dog toys made of a durable rubber should help your dog in jaw and teeth strengthening as well.

A foreign object stuck between teeth is another cause for a Cane Corso drooling. It can be a small piece of bone, plastic toy, or wood that may cause pains too. So, if you spot an unusual slobbering, you gotta check your dog’s jaw first.

Anxiety in Cane Corso may occur when your pooch spends plenty of time alone or if he/she hasn’t been properly socialized. Cane Corso's socialization takes an important part in tailoring your dog’s personality and helps him/her to build a strong and confident temperament. 

The third concern for a Cane Corso drooling is found in overheating. The most common signs of overheating are panting, shaking, drooling, and lethargy. Therefore, you should pay special attention to your Corso’s hydration during the summer months. 

How to deal with your Cane Corso drooling?

You might not do a lot to solve this problem, but you can perform some tricks to keep your house clean. 

  1. Keep your dog’s feeding and drinking bowl outside the house, for example on the balcony or in your yard. You can also buy an anti-wet mouth bowl to decrease the drooling and to place it in a specific place in the house.
  2. Tossing food leftovers from the table might be fun for your pooch, but it is often the biggest culprit for his/ her excessive slobbering. Therefore, try to keep your dog outdoor while having a meal if it’s possible. It might sound cruel, but it will help you to keep the house clean.
  3. Always make sure you have a small towel to clean your dog’s slobber before it becomes crusty.
