I've done a lot of research, but never had the chance to meet this breed in person. And what I wanted to ask, is what are your expierences with the cane corso breed? And I don't want to hear a bunch of "I read off the internet" I could do that also, I'm looking for owners, handlers, or breeders. I was wondering if this would be a good dog for protection as well as companion. I will be taking the dog to obedience classes and he will be properly socialized. I have owned large dogs all my life.... I thought about getting another akita but the climate here isn't suited for them.
