Qualifications & Training
At Lockdown, we beleive that a truly stable representitive of this breed not only requires specific breeding but also the correct training and upbringing.
This means 2 things, firstly the dog should be bred out of stable parents, with a specific role in mind and secondly, new owners should commit to regular training with the dog as it matures.
Not all Corsi are the same and their drive and temperament (to an extent) will be determined by the linage of that dog.
It is important for owners and trainers to understand the characteristics and breed traits of the Cane Corso and to find training methods that work for that particular dog and handler.
At Lockdown, we believe that continuous professional development is essential to the longevity of a successful breeding programme.
Our ethos, alongside health, conformation and temperament is education.
Through hands on experience, collaboration with other experts and pro-active learning we will continue to positively contribute to this breed for years to come.
