Cane Corso is owned by Antonio and Carrissa Garcia.
In the past Tony owned and trained Rottweilers and Carri was raised with
Labradors and Dobermans. We have always loved the large breed dogs, but also
understand the responsibility that comes with them. The
Cane Corso is as fierce in protection as he is in love and friendship. The
Cane Corso is wonderful with children and totally
committed to its owners. They do on the other hand, take a loving but strong
hand to own them. They can, if allowed, be dominant. They are very intelligent
and need good exercise and mental stimulation on a daily basis. If you are able
to put the time into them, there is no greater breed in the world!
live just outside of Chicago Il in Wayne. We have three children, Sean 23, Casey
19 and Tyler 15. Casey and Tyler grew up with our Corso from the age of 7 and 4.
Even though the kids knew what to do with the dogs, they were never left alone
with them. It is the responsibility of the owner to always follow this rule with
children of any age.
We live on 1.2 acres of land purchased for the sole
purpose of raising our Cane Corso. All of our dogs
live in the house with us, and are considered valued family members. They are
exercised 2x daily and accompany us as often as possible
on outings. We are
active in conformation and obedience, and agility. Our dogs come from proven
European Champion lines and have certified hip and health certificates.
When we breed, we breed for standard, sound character and health. We put a major
emphasis on placing our dogs in the perfect home. We feel the biggest challenge
of a responsible breeder is to make sure the dogs go into the proper homes,
because you are responsible for them for the rest of their lives. It’s very easy
to sell a dog, people will always come up with the money, but it’s not so easy
to get them into the homes that appreciate the time and care that goes into
them, and to train them. It you are thinking about getting a
Cane Corso, it is a lifetime commitment and that dog
becomes a member of your family.
We are now offering dog training in the
Western suburbs of Chicago. Contact us for
