What do you think about Roman Cane Corso breeder?

I don't know much about cane corso per say but like any stable minded dog they should be fine if properly raised and socialized. As far as testing it can depend on the dog some are more testy than others.

  • I gotta say this breeder looks very legit and they guarantee the health and TEMPERAMENT of the dogs they produce. To me this is huge, I was wondering if you anyone had experience with this breeder? I know the basic wikipedia, website descriptions but I wanted to know real facts about the temperament of the breed. While I know there are differences between the American and the Italian, can you guys provide me with some info about the temperament? Can they live with a dog of the opossite sex? what about cats? do they constantly test you for hierachy of the pack?

      • I have been around a couple. I amost rescued one but he started guarding me from my fiance with only having him for like 45 minutes and i did not like that. Then again I know he must have been uncomfortable because he wasn't at home but I fostered a Presa Canario and I never got tested like that.

        • Do you have any background history of the dog you almost resscued? Breeding? How old was the dog? Was he abused? How was the dog guarding you from the finance, barking? growling? etc? As I said it can depend on that indivual dog. I've had a boxer try to lunge at me, yet they are supposed to be gentle. I also knew that this was because he was untrained by the owner as well. I also had a fixed male dane that would go after any dog and was distrustful of strangers. My current dane now is not like that and is intact. Other dog's had lunged and bitten him yet he's shown no signs of aggression. So you see it can vary so many factors can contribute. Even then sometimes when you think you've done everything right trouble still finds it way through. Just the nature of the beast. Have you tried contacting the breeder yet?

          • I current have 2 corsi and they are a guardian breed so yes they do tend to be more protective. They are also intelligent and require a firm but fair leadership from the start, if you aren't able to fill that role then yes they are more then capable of taking the control spot. If you are the one in charge and they respect that then you will have one of the most loyal, majestic dogs you could imagine. We have just added our first skin baby and they are doing well with her, but we do ensure they are not left alone with the baby and know that the baby comes before them in the pecking order of things. They share their space with 3 cats and we haven't had any issues, my 2 know that the cats are off limit in our house, but we are surrounded by lots of barn cats that they like to chase when they see them. Again something that you would have to teach the correct behaviour to. I have never had any experience with Roman Cane Corso although I do know people that have had or do have dogs from them. They do have a lot of dogs/litters and that makes me nervous about the amount of personal time that they might be able to devote to socializing the dogs/puppies but have been in the breed a while so I think would have good knowledge of their lines. In regards to guarantees, and this isn't in reference to Roman as I don't know what they are like, but it is only worth what the breeder is willing to let it be. I know a breeder that also guarantee temperament but when it came to puppies in the litter (and we aren't talking just one pup but 2-4 pups) having a temperament issue it was immediately the owners fault. Despite the fact that the female they held back as their prospect was nervous and had temperament issues of her own. So take that for what it is worth, until they are tested one never knows if they will hold up their end and temperament is always a difficult issue to prove who is at fault, or if they have to cover the contract what is consider a temperament issue that would be covered. If I can help with recommending any other kennels you are interested in please let me know. I don't know what area you are located in but am assuming that as you are into the Roman dogs that you are more partial to the American lines?

[/quote1281551326] Some guy on craiglist was trying to rehome the dog because he was having a baby. He tells me nothing but good things, I walked the dog with the guy and he was fne. I cam back another week later and took the dog for the day. The walked perfect and did everything I asked him to. IN fact, It was a bit odd that the dog was trained to follow commands with number words. So 1 = sit , 2= down and 3 according to the guy was to patrol I never got past one and the two because I did not want to find out what 3 was. Anyhow, we went to my inlaws and we were hanging out he greeted everyone and he was listening to every command. He was sitting next to me and then as soon as my girl went to come near me and kiss me or something like that he started growling at her. I called the guy after it happened and he told me that the dog had originally bitten the previous owner's bf so the dog had a few owners and I am sure he was unstable without leadership. I know a dog will test you one way or another but maybe because I am so used to pit bull type dogs but to me if a dog is growling at me to test me it is not worth my time or the safety of the household. Like you, I also believe a dog has a character whether you cut the balls or not, a lot of these ASPCA HSUS and vets keep advertising to neuter the dog to fix agression. My current Bully cross gets along with everything although he is only a year old and he is still intact. My chiwawa is 2 years old and we neutered him at 8 months old and he is a little maniac lol I contacted them in the past when I was looking for a dog but after the experience with that dog I was turned off by them. This was 5 years ago and honestly I had a lot to learn about dogs. I think I have more tools now and way more knowledge.

                • A Corso is a dominant breed, but less testing than a Rott, though some lines are more "difficult" than others. Looks like one of Roman's first dogs was a straight Sottile special. I like their current dogs, very nice. The type in America is slowly improving. There is a good level of prey and rank in this breed. I must say, our Corso is probably the best at getting along with the pack and loves her "sisters," though she does enjoy very rough play, which is not always appreciated by the other two bitches. opposite sex dogs is the best way for them to get along. Same sex can offer a bit of trouble if you don't socialize them correctly. Our Corso was fine when raised with our cats, though she was one of two here that did like to chase. We had dog wise cats, which would not run. Our Corso does less rank testing than our CO or our Rott. Most of her "mistakes" are her drive getting the best of her, though she is quick to "find herself" again on verbal command. I think your Bully cross would love a Corso girlfriend. Visit the breeder if at all possible.

[/quote1281552229] That poor dog, so many factors could have contributed to his behavior. However I agree growling is not tolerated and given your knowlege of inexperience (at that time) would not have been a good combination. Best start with a new pup and work with him. I've been into dogs for as long as I could remeber and still have a lot to learn. I've only settled on a breed (great dane) about 7 or 8 years ago and I'm still learning, lol. Its a never ending process.

                          • My dog's grandsire was a roman cane corso...they are generally on the bigger side and softer temperment-wise from what I have heard. you have to be a strong leader with these dogs...when they do test you, you provide calm and firm correction & redirection as an alpha member of a pack would...i know it sounds cliche, but it makes all the difference with the corso...

There are a few other differences but most will tell you size, the Italian lines are supposed to be more compact and athletic and the American lines larger and thicker. It seems to be less the case now as there are more people that are having good success with mixing American and Italian stock and getting the best of both worlds. As for kennels in your area I am not familiar with any in the immediate area but can ask around. There are a few kennels that I like the dogs of, and these are just my preferences (I prefer Italian) but will put some of the kennels I like the American stock from too (a lot of these kennels are East coast so think close enough to get out and see their dogs at the kennel or shows)... http://www.italicacanecorso.com/ http://www.libertycanecorsos.com/ http://www.godivacanecorso.com/index2.html http://www.firehorsecanecorso.com/ http://www.maresol.cc/ Check them out if you want or if there are other kennels let me know and if I haven't dealt with them can put you in touch with someone that has.

My corso is much more intune with me but my rotties have never pushed my buttons the way my corso girls do. My first female came in at 8 weeks and took over the 3 rotties that were there before her. I do agree with going with opposite sexes though, will make for a more peaceful household though. I do find the female corsi a little more dominant then the males but that could be the lines that I have.
