Yes, cane corso dogs are highly intelligent. In fact, the IQ of a cane corso is similar to that of a 2-year-old child. These dogs also share the same level of intelligence as German shepherds.
Cane corsos can understand up to 200 words, solve various types of problems, and quickly adapt to different situations. As descendants of Roman war dogs, it’s not a surprise that cane corsos are smart and easily trained.
However, it should be noted that most cane corsos have a dominant personality. As a result, they need to be trained by an experienced owner who has a strong personality. They also need extensive socialization and training from an early age. Otherwise, they might become unruly and obnoxious later on.
