Kana Corso (in short) Corso is a very serious dog breed for the most serious dog owners who want a companion who needs love and guidance and boundaries to make him the amazing dog he is. He’s a family dog - only! Don’t expect him to connect with anyone else. He has no interest in other people or animals outside the family, but those in the family will gain loyalty and protection.
This dog needs work. He won’t just lie down all day, and he’ll find his own “work” if you don’t let him.
