Are Cane Corsos aggressive? No. This is not an inherently aggressive dog. The Cane Corso was never bred to be a fighting dog. He does however have a strong protective instinct. Cane Corsos are very large, strong dogs, and they have a tremendous bite force. All of which means that they could be very dangerous if they become out of control.
Cane Corso can be excellent pets and perfect family dogs. Loyal, affectionate and protective, with a calm, stable temperament, they will naturally follow their owner’s lead. They are dedicated to their whole family and make wonderful companions. However, because they are large dogs, extra caution should be taken with small children.
