Overview

Cane Corso: Sports and Resistance in the United States by Emily Bates

Today’s Cane Corso, the recreation of the powerful mastiff from the Roman era, ranks among the world’s most impressive canines. The Cane Corso is a formidable protector of home and family, a reliable big-game hunter, an all-around companion, an agile, highly trainable competition dog, and so much more! Few breeds have enjoyed such a renaissance as the Cane Corso, thanks to dedicated breeders in Italy and the United States. This Comprehensive Owner’s Guide is the only book of its kind dedicated to this fascinating Italian mastiff and retells the story of the breed’s revival and its stake at fame in the 21st century.

New owners will welcome the well-prepared chapter on finding a reputable breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing the right supplies for the puppy as well as house-training, feeding, and grooming are illustrated with photographs of handsome adults and puppies. In all, there are over 135 full-color photographs in this useful and reliable volume. The author’s advice on obedience training will help the reader better mold and train into the most well-mannered dog in the neighborhood. The extensive and lavishly illustrated chapter on healthcare provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, preventing and dealing with parasites, infectious diseases, and more. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as historical dogs, breeders, or kennels, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, carsickness, fussy eaters, and parasite control. Fully indexed.
