The Best Cane Corso

Can my Cane Corso live outside?

Many breeders believe that the Cane Corso is the ideal guard dog since it is strong, large, and
adaptable to many living circumstances. How well do they cope with hot or cold conditions?
Cane Corsos prefer to live outside—they love it and will most likely thrive there. Providing them with
an outdoor shelter is the ideal setup for this breed because it’ll give them enough space to run, sit,
and play. It keeps them healthy and reduces the risks of developing various health conditions, such as
hip and elbow dysplasia, dilated cardiomyopathy, muscular myopathy, and bone cancer.
If you want them to dwell inside your home, it is perfectly acceptable; they wouldn’t object either.
But in order for them to thrive, just like other large dog breeds, they must have the flexibility and
ability to play and exercise without limitations. Therefore, be sure that there is enough room outside
before choosing to adopt one for your home. Although it’s not necessary, your dog will appreciate it.

Can Cane Corso Live Outside in Winter?

 

This dog can adapt to varying conditions with the help of its two-layered heavy coat. You may have
read about some issues when they shed—excessive at times—but it’s their way of adapting to cold
and hot weather.
In late spring and summer, this breed will start to shed like no other dog. It’s their natural cycle to
prepare for the winter, wherein the underlayer of their coat develops new, thicker hair. It’ll make
them more resilient to cold weather, but they’re still vulnerable to extreme cold.
The general rule for breeders is to take their dogs inside when the temperature drops below 32℉ (0℃).
When it drops even lower, you may want to place them in a heated room to keep them comfortable.
If that’s not an option, you can give them a “doggy coat” to keep them warm.

Cane Corso and Hot Weather: Do They Handle It Well?

 

Cane Corso’s seasonal shedding doesn’t only keep them warm. Shedding starts in late spring because
shorter hair helps them live through the hot weather of summer. In late summer to fall, new hair
starts to grow, preparing them for winter.
It’s a cycle that improves their resilience—you just have to keep up with it.
They shed to make their coat thinner, preparing them for hot weather, but similarly, they’re only
more resilient than other breeds. They’re still vulnerable in scorching environments, and may not
survive without proper care.
If the weather gets too hot, you may have to provide your dog with clean, cold water to stay well-
hydrated. Some breeders even have a separate, well-ventilated space, where their dogs can cool
down.
