5 Misconceptions about the Cane Corso

5 Misconceptions about the Cane Corso

1. Short Lifespan: Some people believe that Cane Corsos have a very short lifespan. While larger breeds, in general, tend to have shorter lifespans than smaller dogs, well-cared-for Cane Corsos can live an average of 9 to 12 years, which is consistent with other large breeds.

2. Require Extensive Exercise: People often assume that Cane Corsos need an excessive amount of exercise due to their size and strength. While they do need regular physical activity, they are not as high-energy as some other breeds. Moderate exercise and mental stimulation are generally sufficient to keep them content.

3. Not Good with Children: Some people believe that Cane Corsos are not suitable for families with children. However, with proper socialization and training, they can be gentle and affectionate with kids. As with any large and powerful breed, supervision is necessary when around small children to prevent accidental injuries due to their size and strength.

4. Cane Corsos Don't Require Grooming: Due to their short coat, some people assume that Cane Corsos don't need much grooming. While they don't require extensive grooming like long-haired breeds, they do shed and benefit from regular brushing to remove loose hair and keep their coat healthy.

5. Unfit for Apartment Living: People often believe that Cane Corsos are unsuitable for apartment living because of their size and energy levels. While they do need sufficient space and exercise, they can adapt to apartment living if their exercise needs are met through regular walks and playtime.
