Cane … What exactly makes Kane unique as a “working” Cane Corso!
Kane is a fully trained “working” personal protection dog. He is also a qualified “working” dog candidate as a police or military dog under the guidelines of the Koehler method. He has been trained and tested as a “working” dog and not as any type of sports protection dog. There are many differences between these two types of dogs.
So what makes Kane unique as a working Cane Corso? Before I explain it helps to understand a little bit about dog psychology and drives. All dogs have 4 main drives that they function from. In different breeds the amount of certain drives may be substantially stronger than others. The main drives of dogs are as follows.
1. Social drive = This is how a dog relates to its master, family and property.
2. Defense drive = This relates to dog’s desire to defend or guard something.
3. Prey drive = This relates to a dog’s desire to chase things. (Also called chase drive)
4. Fight drive = Relates to the bite and actual fight.
Different breeds of protection dogs have different prominent drives. The Belgium Malinos is a prominent “prey” drive dog. So it excels in situations needed to go out and chase down a suspect. Where as the Cane Corso is a prominent “defense” drive dog which excels at stopping threats coming at you while defending you or it’s home.
While many working Cane Corsos are GREAT at directly defending their handler, family or property. They often lack the “prey” drive strength necessary to “go out” and chase down or hunt the bad guys. Which is sometimes desired in certain police and military applications.
There are a few working Cane Corsos that have a higher prey drive in addition to their famous high defense and fight drives. But this is considered a rare trait within the breed.
This is where Kane and the Cane County line breeding program come in! Jacks is one of the few working Cane Corsos that not only has a high defense and fight drive but also has a very high prey drive as well! Notice in his videos that he is more than happy to take the lead and actively go out and chase down a bad guy once identified!
We’re one of the few Cane Corso breeders in the United States that understand and use the selective breeding process. Through testing we have identified the genes responsible for certain genetic traits. We are currently making a series of very “selective” breedings that will allow us to make this desirable rarer genetic trait to be much more predictable and common place in some of our future puppies produced!
