    hello
    We are looking for a companion dog but also family guard dog. I really like the cane corso. I like the temperament, how intelligent they are, how good they can be around kids. I could go on. But my question and concerned I have four kids ages 8 yo triplets and a 15. We have pet allergies. I wanted to know if anyone have pet allergies own a cane corso? We do not have carpet in our home.

    It depends how bad the Allergies are. The last thing you want to do is bring a Puppy home and then tell the kids he has to go.... stressful situation for everyone (dogs included)..

    It is possible to Develop Allergies to (anything) even if you did not original have them. This happened to someone I know, who had a 5 year old dog, they said oh-well my dog is not going anywhere. There are "Allergy Needles" you can get which will slowly desensitize you to the Allergy which may be able to take the allergies away. (Although, I don't know if you would want to do that with your kids.)

    Oh and only get the dog if YOU want it, and YOU will take care of him. I know someone who bought their 13y.o. daughter a dog and entirely gave them the responsibility for the dog.... that did not work out very well, and they did not keep the dog very long unfortanetly.

    Ps. A Guard dog need a LOT of training to be a Guard dog, just a heads up! :)

    Thank you. I am actually planning to take family to a breeder so we can interact around the dog. If asthma attacks occur we will not proceed. Yes I am planning to do a lot of training. Thank you for input.

    That's a good iea, let us know how it goes! And you might want to visit more than once if possible. (Just in case you visit on a particularly good or bad day and make your decision on one isolated event.)

    If it does not work out, there are Hypo-Allergenic dog Breeds you could look into and see if any of them interest you?
