Okay, I'm going to try to keep this initial post short and to the point and get right to it. The Corso is at the top of my list for my next dog. Yes, I know there are many many other things to consider in choosing a dog (health, temperament of course of utmost importance). So pardon me in advance if this question seems simplistic or amateurish; but my wife and I are experienced dog people and we are middle-aged and know our lives well and what fits into our lives and what does not. Simply stated: Is the Cane Corso a breed that whines much? Is the Cane Corso a breed that barks a lot – IN PARTICULAR, AT ANIMALS? I know each answer may be preceded by "It depends," and that's fine; but please kindly offer us your experiences and knowledge. There are different types and lines of Corsi, yes I know. I've seen that specimens of the breed vary pretty widely. Tell me what type you're talking about when you offer your experience on the above questions. Our working Doberman is extremely whiny and extremely barky. I have worked as hard as possible to keep it under control, but it's a real bear to manage. I hate to admit it, but 98% of the time he barks at the front window of the house it is at an ANIMAL. What a completely useless behavior that actually detracts from his usefulness as a guard dog. Well, thanks in advance for your input, everyone!
