Cane Corsos are a confident, highly intelligent, and excellent family dog. Combine that with his bossy nature, and it’s easy to see how he could come to dominate the household without firm leadership and boundaries. The Cane Corso has a massive head, heavy rectangular body, and a short coat in black, gray, fawn, or red. A Cane Corso needs a leader who can guide him with firmness and consistency without using force or cruelty. When it comes to athleticism, agility, speed, energy level, and sense of adventure, the Cane Corso easily outdoes the other mastiff breeds.
