    I have been reading a lot about having 2 male Cane Corsos and have been reading mixed opinions. Some say absolutely not, some say yes but it's a constant watch due to inherent traits, some say yes as long as a female in heat is not introduced and some say neutering and training. My question is for the people who have actually had 2 males, not as breeders where you have the ability to separate constantly, but as owners of pets. Have you had success or has it been a failure and if so was it a intact vs neutering issue. We are debating getting a second dog and prefer males so we wanted to get the input from others who have gone through it. Any info from people who have had two male Corsos would be very helpful. Thanks in advance

    We had one till he passed and recently brought a 17 week puppy into the home. Hes timid and a little shy.

    Hes timid and shy at the moment but that can change very quickly, my eldest cc went through the most fear stages, hes turned out to be the most fearless dog weve ever owned, he hates other gogs outside his pack, and if we werent in control now he would probably fight within his pack, if it goes wrong iv known owners have to crate and rotate to keep them seperate, or rehome 1.
    They can get on at the start then boom it goes wrong, and you wouldnt want to try and seperate to fully grown ccs thats in a full on fight. We spent months training, it was full time, we watched there movements, how they reacted with someone coming on the property ect, we watched how they looked at ecah other, we stepped in if we thought there was going to be the slightest issue or challenge,
    So i want you to think if youve got the hours each day to put in, im home full time so this was the right time for us, i wouldnt have done it if i wasnt.
    We had male rotties together and found the ccs a lot more work and challenging.
    I understand you prefer males , so do we. All mine are intact. So adding a female would have been a nightmare.
    Any questions you have ill gladly answer.

    Thank you for your insight. A lot of what I have been getting (feedback) on other forums has been a little all over the place. What are your thoughts if both males are neutered?

    I personally dont think it makes any difference, if you get one that doesnt get on with other males then its just managing the situation, my other 2 are fine, they ignore other dogs when out, and they fit well as a pack, but i yave to keep budcuss in line. Iv had to help rehome 2 ccs that was in same sex pairs, one was females.
