Being able to health test the Cane Corso in our breeding program, as well as those in pet homes not used in our program, gives us the knowledge to make informed decisions. We do require all of our puppy families to test their dog's hips, heart and eyes, at the appropriate age, as part of our contract.  There are many problems and diseases that cannot be improved without health testing. While the results of our testing might not always be what we would hope for, and results provide knowledge.

As hobby breeders, it is important for us to improve our breeding program with every dog.  Unlike many other breeders, we encourage our owners to health test dogs placed as pets too (and offer rebates). We advocate health testing so that we can make the best decisions for the breed and Cane Corso going forward.  Health testing is more than testing breeding dogs, it helps us to learn more about inheritance of diseases that affect the Cane Corso.  We are proud to show our health testing statistics below:

  • 23 PennHIP/OFA Hips Tested

  • 12 OFA Elbows Tested

  • 8 OFA Patellas Tested

  • 2 OFA Shoulders Tested

  • 2 OFA Thyroid Tested

  • 19 OFA Cardiacs Tested by Cardiologists

  • 18 Dogs Tested for Eye Certifications over multiple years.

  • 4 CHIC Certified

We are very proud of each of the dogs in our program and the ones we have produced. We are exceptionally proud of the dogs that show us just how versatile the Cane Corso can be and still be a Cane Corso.  We encourage our owners to do more with their Corso and even offer rebates for those that accomplish these titles.  If you are interested in owning a Cane Corso and doing more with your Cane Corso, we would love to have you as part of our extended family.
