As you know the Cane Corso is a large, medium energy breed. These dogs are very powerful, as well as affectionate, I have noticed over the years they get so happy to be with their owners they try their best to stay contained but sometimes the large pups cannot stop from being clumsy. Its important to choose a collar that will be able to hold under the extreme shear power that a Cane Corso is capable of, this is to the best interest of the owner as well as the stranger.
Of course we know its very important when you are taking your dog for a walk that we have a VERY strong leash and a strong collar. For your dogs safety it is vital that you communicate and demonstrate that you are in control.
The best way to exhibit this control is through the use of a good collar or dog harness, it is also very important to have a good leash to go with this combo. Collars come in many styles and varieties, and it can be difficult to judge which ones will and won’t work for you and your dog. I have seen some very weak think collars made of both leather and some made of nylon. I suggest a thick grade leather or nylon if you own a Cane Corso Mastiff.
So what’s the best collar for Cane Corso dogs?
I will touch on some of my favorite collars, their benefits to you and your dog, and highlight some products from Roman Dog Collars who make an excellent hand made product that I feel is the Strongest Cane Corso Dog Collars you can buy.
There is an on going debate as which is best a Cane Corso collar or harness.
Both have benefits and drawbacks, but the decision ultimately lies in your hands. It would also be wise to research your thoughts to make sure you are making the best decision for your dog. I personally choose a Good Strong Artisan Dog Collar for large breeds over a dog harness. I have tried harnesses on my Cane Corsos and they seem to jump into work mode and pull more because they think they are working. I mean think about it….horses wear harnesses, oxen, as well as many other animals over the years when working. Why then would we use a harness to control the movement of our dogs? If you want your dog to pull a sled use a harness, if you want to control your dog and take them for a nice walk then use a dog collar.
Some may say a collar can hurt their necks if pulled with force, this can happen when using a very narrow dog collar. Its more likely to happen in a breed with less muscle on their necks such as a thin hunting type dog, however it may still be a concern for any breed. The solution is simple, buy a nice strong thick collar with padding this can’t hurt the dogs sensitive neck area, and still provide enough stopping and pulling power to show the dog a ‘NO’ with a motion control
Cane Corsos are powerful and can pose a threat of injury to you, another dog or person, or themselves, even if they don’t mean to. When you hold your Cane Corso on the leash be sure to use two hands if needed, it’s not uncommon for a Cane Corso to pull fast if they see environmental stimuli so it’s important to have two hands on the leash or you can damage your shoulder.
Be sure to train your dog early on in his or her life how to walk on a leash before they become full grown this will create less bodily stress as you train your Cane Corso to walk.
Make sure you are properly trained and educated before you take your dog on a walk, as this will drastically decrease the risk of injury or escape.
If your dog is a strong puller then the narrow collars must not be used by any measures, these collars can cause damage to your Cane Corso’s vertebrae or trachea. Often times, this damage can be permanent.
Which of the above styles you choose is going to depend on the factors you are looking for in a collar or harness for your pet.
Below are a few important elements of a good dog collar:
Any collar or harness meeting the above specifications would be a great option for your Cane Corso. The important thing is that you select a harness that meets the unique needs of you and your pet.
For over 10 years we have raised Cane Corso mastiffs. We were always challenged when making a choice with dog collars since most of the collars we bought were destroyed within days or weeks. We decided to have what we considered to be the finest made dog collars in the world. After years of testing and designs we partnered with world renowned Artisan leather makers and began Roman Dog Collars.
