History of the Cane Corso


About the Cane Corso

The Cane Corso ("KAH-neh COR-soh"), not cane as in walking, dog is an ancient Italian molosser and direct descendant of the Canis Pugnax. Its name derives from the Latin "cane" that means "Dog", while "Corso" means to "Course" or "Chase". Hence, the name Cane Corso is usually taken to mean 'DOG OF THE CHASE".

It has an athletic build and a solid, compact body with free-flowing movement. The combination of its stable character, the absolute devotion to its master and its adaptability to the environment are the reasons of the breed's popularity and success. Historically, the dog was used to guard property and cattle, to hunt large game and the protection of the family.

In his youth, Larry bred and trained hunting Beagles and Coon Hounds. In the early 80's he joined the Army to become an MP, working and training the working dogs. He spent six years, walking the DMZ in South Korea, with his K9 partner and helping to take care of a kennel with 125 to 175 dogs. Larry, now living in South Florida, who after witnessing inhumane treatment of dogs before his Army career, made it his life's mission to improve the dog training industry so that no dog would suffer needlessly.
