Cane Corso Coat Type And Maintenance

Do cane corso shed? If you’re worried about dead dog hair flying everywhere and sticking on your brand new black pants, you shouldn’t. The Cane Corso dog breed is a low-shedding one, meaning they won’t cost you an arm and a leg in monthly groomer’s expenses, nor will you need a bunch of tools and skill to keep that coat looking spectacular.
The Cane Corso may look like a single-coated dog, but it actually isn’t. They do have an undercoat, but you won’t see it at a first glance. This undercoat is rather thin, and it changes with the seasons. Yes, there is seasonal shedding present with this dog breed, but I wouldn’t worry about it as long as you brush your dog two to three times a week, and daily in the shedding season.
Bathing is another issue I must address. You see, many owners believe that since this is a short-coated dog, they can bathe them on a weekly basis. Oh, boy, are they wrong! Overbathing, especially with short-coated dogs will cause skin irritations, dry patches, and eczema.
