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 Utah?
Utah has some definite areas for improvement for pets. Let’s dig into the numbers and find out Utah’s strengths and weaknesses when it comes to dog-friendly living.
Animal advocacy group Pawsafe conducted a study ranking each state by its pet-friendliness. The study evaluated states according to several important factors like animal cruelty laws and regulations, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.
In their study, Utah ranked as the 37th most pet-friendly state. Unfortunately, the state did not score well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards. Definitely room for improvement.
Safewise is a national safety review site. Their study on animal safety also ranked states. In their study, Utah is ranked as the 35th most pet-friendly state. Combining these two studies puts Utah somewhere towards the middle to the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
