About Time Cane Corso Italiano
Breed: Cane Corso | Member Since 7/6/2010
AKC FCI ICCF, FCPR
We have a select small group of Cane Corsos here at About Time, carefully chosen with key points in mind. Health, temperament, drive, stability, conformation to the Italian (FCI) Breed Standard, and that underlying "presence" that makes the Cane Corso breed so unique.
Our philosophy is that a correctly bred Corso, raised and socialized responsibly, will lay at your feet, play with your children, protect your family, show in conformation or working events, and will confidently perform in whichever areas you chose. We are proud of the About Time dogs that are already Champions, and that are heading for the show rings and working events across the states. At the same time we are no less proud of the About Time dogs that are stable loving companions in family homes as well.
Do a bit of research on the Cane Corso breed today, and you will find heated opinions and various types of dogs that differ so widely they seem to have nothing in common but the name. As to our breeding of an "About Time" Cane Corso, I will quote a well respected Arabian breeder who said, "If you are not clear as to what you want, it is much more difficult to produce the horse you will like."
The characteristics we breed toward are similar to the original Italian breed standard of type. We breed to produce a very muscular dog with massive bone, a broad and deep chest, a wide square head, well angulated hindquarters, and an overall balanced and athletic build. Our ideal is a fit, athletic, and agile dog: powerful yet graceful, well muscled and solid, but not heavy and over-wrinkled. We breed for a stable well-rounded temperament; a dog with the nature to protect if needed, the drive to compete and work, but the stability to be trusted as a child's companion at the end of the day.
About Time Cane Corso pups share consistent traits. They are energetic, observant, playful puppies, who mature into alert adults with that Pure Corso Personality: both strong and sensitive, protective yet gentle, intelligent and mischievous (and smart enough to often get away with it), loyal, faithful, and completely, totally, undeniably, devoted to their "family".We welcome you to browse our ever-growing website to learn more about our dogs and the Cane Corso breed. You will find we have taken the time to provide a wealth of photos, information, and resources to help you better get to know us and learn about this amazing breed. In a world of ordinary and conventional, only the most distinctive will ever leave a truly lasting impression. www.AboutTimeCaneCorso.com
