Our canine companions have little say in some of the changes that happen in our life like having a baby, moving to a new home, or taking a job with longer working hours. We should of course consider the needs of our canines when making decisions that will impact them, but we’re often put in those same situations at a moment’s notice too. So how much should you worry about separation anxiety in the Cane Corso? Let’s find out.  ENERGY We’ll dive right in and look at how the breeds energy level can affect their level of separation anxiety. The Cane Corso reaches maturity around three to four years of age, and with their puppy and teenage years coming to a close, their energy level drops a bit. They are generally a pretty high-energy breed for a mastiff, but they will range closer to moderate-energy after their first four years of life. They need a good bit of exercise throughout the day so taking them for a longer walk and good play session before you’re going to be gone longer than normal can help keep them sleeping happily for longer. They aren’t prone to destructive behaviours once they reach maturity and prefer to doze in a comfy spot most of the day, but as with all guardian breeds, they are happiest when their whole family is home.  TRAINABILITY/INTELLIGENCE The Cane Corso is highly trainable and willing to please their calm, consistent leader which can come in handy when their life is uprooted. You want to train them and start easing them into new routines as early as possible and this can be easier when they are tired. Remember, your Cane Corso’s ancestors were used to herd livestock across Europe before they became farmyard guardians. Most canines still prefer situations that are familiar so they can easily spot anything amiss. Keeping their routines as familiar as possible will help to transition them into their new life whether that be a new home, a new baby, or less time with you.  FAMILY & SOCIAL The Cane Corso is a devoted family canine that thrives when someone is with them, but they can be trained to be comfortable being alone. It’s critical that you work on their confidence alone from an early age and build up the time they are left alone rather than jump in. Cane Corso’s can destroy their kennel, chewing the any number of things, and other destructive behaviours when they aren’t trained to accept being alone. Moderate exercise, quality bonding, and crate training are going to be key in keeping your Cane Corso from developing separation anxiety. Since you never know when you might suddenly start working more or be home later, it’s crucial that you teach this acceptance early on and keep this training maintained throughout the life of your Cane Corso. It will make many of life changes easier for both your canine and you to adapt to at a moment’s notice. AFFECTION/INDEPENDENCE Cane Corso’s are incredibly devoted and affectionate with their family, so changes in their life that result in less time with you, or the rest of the family, are going to be the hardest for them to adjust to. If you’ve taken a job with longer hours and don’t have a family member that can be there, you’ll need to work harder when exercising and bonding with them in the morning and evening. If you or someone your Cane Corso trusts can be there for an hour or two in the middle of the day to give them some attention, then they’ll be far less prone to developing separation anxiety. As with most things, it’s easiest to make the adjustment in stages if possible and get creative when making accommodations if it’s not. Keep in mind that if you know a life change that will directly impact the amount of time you can spend with Cane Corso is coming, start adjusting to the new routine as early as possible. WRAP UP Overall, the Cane Corso doesn’t often develop intense separation anxiety, but you’ll still want to train them in and for a variety of situations since it’s impossible to know what changes you’ll experience in their life. Their guarding instincts and devotion are going to be two of your biggest factors when considering how to prevent separation anxiety so start working on those early and then often throughout their life to make changes as easy on them, and you, as possible.

Almost every canine breed on the planet will be quite playful through their first year, and many will continue to behave like puppies in some ways for up to their first two to four years of life. The age that a dog reaches maturity varies from breed to breed, and many other influences impact this on an individual level. Like people, some individuals are more introverted than others, even if the breed is generally outgoing. So with that in mind, we're going to be looking at the Cane Corso breed's general playfulness, but remember, each canine is unique. ENERGY Alright, with all that out of the way, let's dig right in and look at one of the most significant factors in a breeds playfulness; their energy level. The Cane Corso reaches maturity around 4 years of age, and with their puppy and teenage years coming to a close, their energy level drops a bit. They are generally a pretty moderate-energy breed, but they will range closer to high-energy for their first four years of life. When motivated, and no matter their age, be prepared to see this large canine companion turn into the swift and agile athlete they were bred to be. Remember, this breed has been used for everything from herding cattle, to hunting boar, to modern protection work. Teaching them a game like hide and seek in a controlled environment could be one way to work their mind and instincts while still playing with your Cane Corso. Make sure their reward for finding you or the hidden object is worthy of their effort to keep it a game they want to play. TRAINABILITY/INTELLIGENCE The Cane Corso is quite trainable and willing to please their calm, consistent leader. If your idea of a playful canine is one who loves to play with a tug toy and run after a ball for a bit, then the Cane Corso could be a great fit. They can be high achievers who need a fair bit of exercise and a whole lot of cuddles. They will settle in and chew on a bone or toy but prepared for them to fling it around if they're feeling particularly energized and take this as a sign that you need to interact with them in a way that works their mind and body. Obedience drills can be a great solution to this since they can be done in the home or outside on a walk. FAMILY & SOCIAL Canines typically play a bit more with children and feed off their energy, and the Cane Corso is no exception. This is one area where their high energy can cause problems if you have children even though they are typically very tolerant and gentle breed. When raised together, many families never have a problem worse than accidently knocking a child over or getting swatted by a wagging tail. Their family will see the playful side of the Cane Corso that few others ever will. This is partly because they are watchful of strangers on instinct, and play requires them to let that guard down a bit. Some might prefer a short session with a flur pull or game of tug, and a few have even been known to like fetch. You'll need to try different things to see what your Cane Corso likes and adapt as they age or get bored. Most Cane Corsos enjoy some wrestling and light roughhousing with the adults in the family since it quickly turns into cuddles when they lose steam.  AFFECTION/INDEPENDENCE Speaking of cuddles, let's look at how inclined the Cane Corso is towards affection versus independence. Like most working breeds, they are happiest when their whole family is home, but they can do well alone too. Give them a few toys to play with during the day and a good solid bit of exercise in the morning, and you might come home to find your Cane Corso hasn't moved at all once they reached their maturity age. Before that age, they can be prone to the same mischief of all young canines when their energy collides with boredom, and they find a (sometimes destructive) way to entertain themselves. When you're home, they'll track you from room to room and come snuggle up as close as they can get. Several long walks and some playtime on the floor and lots of cuddles are the favorite activities for this breed once they've grown up.  WRAP UP Overall, the Cane Corso is a very balanced breed when it comes to their playfulness. They'll play more and play harder when they are still puppies, of course, and this will mellow as they age as it does with most canines. You'll probably get a solid hour of quality playtime with your mature Cane Corso several times each day and plenty of cuddles. They are one of the few mastiff breeds that has the drive to learn tricks or focus on complex tasks like scent detection games.

HISTORY Let’s look at the history of each of these breeds a bit so we can see how their early jobs still affect their temperament today.  The Cane Corso, also known as the Italian mastiff, originated in the region we know today as Italy. The breed was originally a war dog in the Roman Empire, and they were a jack of all trades. They would help heard the animals that the armies traveled with to feed the soldiers, and they were also used in the battles themselves in various ways. After the Roman Empire fell, many of the soldiers brought Cane Corso‘s home with them, so the breed went from war dog to farm dog. The Pitbull, as it's commonly called, is actually recognized as the American Staffordshire Terrier. The term pitbull is a category referring to its ancestry as a dog developed to participate in 19th-century blood sports like bull-baiting and dogfighting. The Pitbull we know today is the American version of the English Staffy and is larger than its English cousin. In 1936 the AKC recognized the breeds had become different enough to warrant being registered separately, and the American Pitbull has been the focus of corporate logos, military awards and earned the reputation of being a 'nanny dog' because of their fondness for children. APPEARANCE Now let’s get into their different appearances. Both breeds are solid muscle and have a boxy build to go along with square heads and jaws, and both can be droolers thanks to their heavy joules. The Pitbull, considered a medium-size, usually appears as lean and light on its feet sporting a thin, short coat that shows off their sleek body. The Cane Corso is obviously a large breed of the mastiff variety, and thanks to their loose skin and general size, don’t appear as agile as the Pitbull. Make no mistake, Corso’s have a higher energy level than most mastiff breeds and are incredibly athletic. They have a huge stride and can execute the most complex of agility manoeuvres flawlessly.  TEMPERAMENT/ENERGY/TRAINABILITY  Both breeds are very eager to please and both are generally considered fairly intelligent though some consider the Cane Corso to be of a slightly higher intellect. You’ll notice that the both are fairly easy to train because of the higher energy level as they are quicker to act on your command and more willing to excel at higher levels of obedience or formal training work. The Corso is very eager to please as well but they can be stubborn and willfull, especially from years 1 to 4. Their temperaments are both suited to family life and very similar. They both tend to be very vocal and playful and love to be where their people are. They are full of energy and personality which makes their clownish antics all more entertaining given how loving and affectionate they both are. You’ll also notice that both of these imposing breeds have a very soft personality that won’t do well with harsh corrections or blurry boundaries. They are both extremely loyal and protective of their family but highly trainable thanks to their willingness to please. SOCIAL NEEDS - OTHER CHILDREN/SMALL ANIMALS Cane Corso‘s are extremely affectionate and are happiest when they can be very near or physically touching you, with the rest of their family close by as well. They are prone to separation anxiety because they do bond so closely with the person who primarily feeds and trains them and they don’t always do well by themselves. In most cases, as long as you are seen as they’re calm, consistent leader, both breeds will look to you for guidance in any situation. Pitbull's are also an excellent family dog, maybe even more so than the Corso. They’ve been given the nickname of “nanny dog” for good reason. Pitbulls have quite a bit of energy, but are extraordinarily gentle with babies and children. They are very loving and affectionate with their family, and can even warm up quickly to strangers. Of course, both breeds need lots of socialization early on and throughout their life, and it's especially crucial in breeds like these with protective instincts. WRAP UP The Cane Corso and Pitbull are both incredible breeds that are quite adaptive to family life. If you have an active lifestyle or want to get involved with canine sports then both of these athletic canines could make a good choice. You'll want to see if the Pitbull is allowed in the area you live in and if they are, prepare to be an ambassador of the breed for their whole life.
