Cane Corso Characteristics
Often seen as intimidating and aggressive, the Cane Corso is a misunderstood breed that is just as capable of bodyguard duty as it is babysitter duty within a family. With proper obedience training, early socialization, and a regular job and purpose, the Cane Corso can be a loving family companion.
Smart, patient, and trainable, the assertive and confident Cane Corso is a willful protector. The Cane Corso's heritage goes back to ancient Roman times, and Cane Corso loosely translates to "bodyguard dog" in Latin. These dogs were almost exclusively found in southern Italy until the 1970s and were considered a very rare breed.
Many standing around 23-26 inches to the shoulder and weighing between 90-120 pounds, the Cane Corso is one of the larger canine breeds around. Their size and musculature make them one of the most intimidating breeds at first glance, and this makes a great first line of defense when trained as a guard dog. The Cane Corso comes in a variety of coats, including grey, blue, white, and black.
It’s important to note that while these dogs can be trained early on to be completely loyal to their family, that is where the loyalty stops. Early socialization can help, but these dogs can be rather territorial to strangers, even after meeting them several times.
These dogs are bossy and temperamental, and without a strong authority figure in the house to make the rules, these dogs will assume the alpha role and become difficult to control. This breed craves direction and will respect those who can provide firmness, consistency, and a clear dominance hierarchy.
How dog-friendly is California?
California loves dogs!
California’s dog-friendliness is clear right out of the gates when we look at their pet population. Californians own the most dogs of any state in the U.S., with a little over 40% of homes housing a canine friend. And of the 264 shelters in the state, 118 are no-kill shelters.
California has also enacted plenty of animal welfare laws to guard against people leaving pets in cars or abusing their pets. The state limits owners to four dogs per household to ensure all pups get the attention and care that they need. California is also the only state where pet insurance is mandatory.
A study by WalletHub, the consumer finance site, found that 17 of the top 100 most dog-friendly cities in the country are located in California. They measured dog-friendliness by examining important things like pet-care and veterinary care costs, walkability, percentage of pet-friendly apartments, and animal welfare laws.
Safewise conducted a similar study and ranked California as the sixth most dog-friendly state in the country, while Pawsafe ranks CA as the 26th most dog-friendly state. Both sites are trusted in the pet-loving community.
Dog-friendly spots to go in California
With so much to offer as a state, there are unsurprisingly plenty of awesome dog-friendly spots across California. One of the state’s main attractions is the number of dog-friendly beaches. From San Diego to all the way up the North Coast, many beaches are open to dogs to play and run through the sand.
California is also home to plenty of parks, restaurants, and other areas and activities for you to enjoy with your pups. According to a Trust for Public Land (TPL) study, San Francisco has the fifth-highest number of dog parks per city by capita, with four dog parks per 100,000 residents. Bakersfield, Fremont, Long Beach, and Chula Vista also ranked in the top 25 for the most dog parks.
There are fewer parks in the Los Angeles area, with only 13 parks for the four million-plus residents. Of these parks, eight of them are off-leash parks.
Any areas for improvement?
The main area of improvement for California is dog-friendly housing. California offers a fairly average percentage of pet-friendly rentals. Not to worry – you’ll still find a place for you and your pup, but you should plan to spend a little more time in your search.
