So you have your heart set on a Cain Corso puppy but don’t know where to start looking for a breeder. These very large dog breeds takes someone very special to run a breeding operation successfully. Not everyone has what it takes to properly raise these massive and sometimes dominant animals. A lot of training and nurturing at a very young age is a must when it comes to these animals. That’s why when choosing which person you are going to purchase your animal from, you must be very picky. You wouldn’t want to end up getting a hard to deal with dog that could be overly aggressive. Today we are going to go over some tips on how to choose the right Cane Corso Breeders.
How to Choose Cane Corso Breeders That Know What They Are Doing
Like I stated earlier not everyone is cut out to raise these enormous animals. These dogs aren’t the kind of animal you can put in a kennel and expect them to produce quality puppies without any interaction. You have to carefully raise these dogs and give them the exercise and supervision they need in order to produce offspring that will be well rounded adults. So the first thing you are going to look for is where they keep their adult animals. Ask to tour their facilities and if you see a lot of grown dogs locked up in cages, leave immediately. On the other hand, you know what you are looking for which is someone who raises these dogs inside the home. Yes, these dogs even though they are big it can be raised inside. In fact, many people who own these dogs keep them indoors.
What Are Some Other Things You Should Look For?
The second thing you want to look for is the adult dog’s temperament. You wouldn’t want to receive a puppy from a mother dog that is actively aggressive when you tour the home or facilities. This can be a sign that the owners are not properly socializing their dogs and this can have a damaging effect on the behavior of your new puppy. Finally, you should ask for references. If the person you are dealing with is a professional they will have a lot of past customers that can vouch for them. If they don’t have any references or give you excuses find someone else to do business with. Even a small dog breeding operation with a few animals will have proof that they produce high quality animals, and many of them take pride in having satisfied customers.
