Trail hiking and training with @ozzietheshepherd turned out to be a session. Swipe to the left —> and you’ll see the video of Ozzie trailing dogs as one of his issues is dog aggression.

On our walk we met a wonderful gentleman that owns a Maremma Sheepdog 🐑 from Italy. It’s so cool to see #breedsofpurpose living here in the States. I surprised the gentleman as I knew what breed was and he was floored.

The Cane Corso (pronounced kah-neh kor-so [ˈka…

The Cane Corso (pronounced kah-neh kor-so [ˈkaːne ˈkɔrso]) also known as the Dogo di Puglia (Dog of Puglia) Italian Mastiff, is a large Italian breed of dog, for years valued highly in Italy as a companion, guard dog, and hunter.

.
.

History tells us that the breed is a Coursing (Hunting) dog, bred to hunt game in the wild. Nobility would have owned and hunted with a dog like this. The Great Dane being a large type dog is the other known Mastiff type dog that was used for a similar purpose.

.
.

Here is where the storyline changes. The Corso and Great Dane you see today could not possibly do the same job that it’s predecessor once did. The Dane was more like a Greyhound in those days, a svelte athletic dog while the Corso would have shared a similar look and body. Keep in mind the average Corso before coming into the states were 80 to 90lbs.

Next pictures are of a Cane Corso and German Mastiff (Great Dane) and what they used to look like. Note the size and physical look of the dogs opposed to what we know of today

This breed has been manipulated over the last 50 years into what it is today. I prefer that it looks this way (pictured above) but the powers that be have made it into a 🐌 I still love the breed, name it.

This breed is considered the last Coursing Mastiff of recent times. Although an old breed in its native country, it has become popular rather quickly around the world, especially the States.

For bonus points, in the picture this dog exhibits a key physical feature that is telling of the time the dog comes from and it’s purpose on the field. Can anyone guess?

Anytime the Mastiff and Molosser dogs are spoken about, this is the breed that everyone thinks about. But is it really the true Molosser that every Mastiff breed we know of today came from?

Name the breed and if you’d like to comment, by all means do….

My friend and client asked me to be his date 😍 for this event at Stark Carpet today…. Winnie the Newf actually did very well.

.
.

When I first met Winnie, she was dog aggressive and had very little obedience training. My client wanted to test what she has learned as well as have his dog in the national ad campaign the company was doing with dogs. Everything went well…

To create this mastiff two (2) breeds of dogs were crossed but not in the 50/50% sense, more in a 60% to 40% split.

.
.

Note: the crossing of the two breeds could be the simplest breeding idea that man has ever committed to and one which each breed greatly contributed to the creation of the breed.

.

.

Name the breed…..
