Breeding suggestions

I have a Cane Corso female I'm looking to breed in half a year or so. Her temperament is incredible, and I'd like to see the same demeanor in a physically more capable dog. Although I am breeding for looks, I'm also breeding for utility. The male must be her size or larger. As it stands, I've thought of crossing her with a great Dane or wolfhound for size and stature, or a newfoundland or perhaps an ovcharka as I'd like to improve the offsprings cold weather tolerance. In essence, I'm trying to create the perfect large dog for the outdoors, something strong, resilient and overall capable, but still pleasant to be around.

    How big is she? General rule of thumb is to avoid breeding with a male that is significantly larger than the b***h. Even if it’s an AI pairing, you still have to worry about the potential of oversized pups causing birthing difficulties.

    Breed standards aren't even only used in dogs. They are used in the animals we eat to ensure we're eating healthy animals.

    Here is a page from the Boxer standard depicting proper angulation for healthy joints and spine.

      This is my first dog. I bought it so my 90lb girlfriend can go on walks without me and because her geriatric cat is about to die and I don't wanna deal with the emotional car crash it'll cause.

    Byb Black person have a nice day. Is she breed standard? No? Sterilize.

      Yeah she's pure bred from AKC registered parents. I don't give a shit about breed standards, I want the most capable dog I can make.

      This attitude is why every other dog dies at 10 from epilepsy and 2 kinds of cancer now and spends all 10 of those years looking like this

      Breed standards are not relevant to any dogs purpose. Dogs are working animals. Pleasing the preferences of middle aged childless hags larping as victorian snobs is not a job. Even a dog bred to be an excellent and healthy pet is exempt from show homosexualry and breed standards. Only health, physical ability, temperament, and instincts matter.

      The dogs aesthetic conformation to a breed standard has absolutely nothing to do with this. If anything, some breed standards can make dogs objectively worse for all legitimate purposes. Every serious working dog converges on something similar to the appearance of the US military's malinois. The cane corso's breed standard contains the following glaring functional faults:
      >The Cane Corso Italiano has a complete set of evenly spaced, white teeth meeting in a slightly undershot bite. The jaws are very large, thick and curved. A level bite is acceptable but not preferred.
      Following this standard produces a crippled and unhealthy animal.

          I find the malinois to be a bit hot blooded and slender for my purposes. I hunt hog and bear and spend a lot of time in the woods, but not hiking particularly long distances. I want a stocky but passably athletic build, think the canine equivalent of a draft horse or f150. Also I genuinely couldn't care less about conforming to a breeds checklist. I love my dog but to me it's a tool. I don't need a pretty axe, I need an axe that cuts wood.

            wolves are plenty slender and take down fricking elk

            a lot of dog breeding is conflating human traits with dog results AKA the misapplication of the approximation of common sense (it aint so common - or they'd think "i want a strong dog so i'll make it a fricking wolf because i heard they fight bears")
            >i want a strong dog, so i will make them square faced and broad chested!
            and still the strongest dog, a wild ass wolf, basically looks like a b***h. canine musculature favors a narrow body with everything in a line - because force travels best in straight lines. during this breeding for human traits they also breed for the "work ethic", instincts and temperament, to do their desired job. and get the result, although possibly inferior to what could have been, and suppose their idea about giving dogs broad shoulders because strong guys got them worked.

            people have done this with really dumb things like thinking big ears funnel scents towards the nose. this can't be true because the most effective detection dogs on earth today are all pointy eared. but while breeding for what is objectively a useless deformity, they also bred for instincts and temperament that predisposed the dog to hyper-focusing on sniffing.

            "conformation works!"
            Some of conformation works. Some of it causes genetic harm to the animal and makes it a worse worker. There is no conformation where you get to pick and choose, you conform or you don't, so it doesn't work unless you want to bend the rules, name yourself a kennel club, and make up your own breed standards.

              what's the explanation for dropping the back end? and is any of it just an exaggerated postural thing they train them to perform for showrings and photos, i.e. simply another trick in the "sit, shake, heel, beg, roll over, fetch the paper, beer me" repertoire, or is this another where they've actually gone and gimped the animals by actively selecting for that intensely awkward skeletal structure?
              >complete set of evenly spaced, white teeth meeting in a slightly undershot bite.
              this i can work with. relating to moronation on this level amounts to automated easymode. perfect storm of subjective personal nonsense lets it all auto-map and i don't have to puzzle out shit. we rainman nao. even the big ears funneling scents thing can be made sense of well enough to not be annoying. different flavor of moronation but hardly inaccessible.
              >"the resting stance resembles a female dog maneuvering into position to take a leak. a lack of ambiguity is acceptable but a subtle intimation that the caricatured b***h-getting-ready-to-pee may in fact be slightly oddly proportioned is preferred"
              >desirable trait
              may as well be a brick wall.

                >fricked up underbite
                these dogs are prone to all sorts of dental issues and drool constantly. a normal wolf-like bite with non-drooping lips provides the teeth some self-cleaning abilities believe it or not.
                >long ears
                sometimes people just admit these are injury and infection machines and breed them to have long ears, and then crop them, because being porn with pointy ears wouldn't "honor the legacy of the breed".
                >GSD back
                the crouch makes them look ready to strike therefore they must be more alert and aggressive

                Present this information to any conformation breeder and watch as your entire argument gets BTFO.

                >actually the trait is traditional and does not make the dog sick with proper care and we test for hip dysplasia
                Every time. Dog breeders are low IQ cretins who produce unhealthy high maintenance animals. At least they don’t display any out of standard coat colors or natural traits like a tapering snout!

                Conformation bred dogs have a funny habit of dying before they turn 10. Mammary cancer for instance is genetic, not a consequence of not spaying. You do not know better than nature.

                Both. It started out as just a trick to show off how angular the dog is for optimum wall hurdling. So they gradually decided exaggerating the angle would be judged as a winning strategy, coupled with judges ignoring the other part of the show where the dog is supposed to walk around and the extra slope usually looks like shit in motion and that the breed standard has always specifically called for a more normal back end.

        You're actually wrong because part of the standardization of dog breeds includes health testing. Creating concoction breeds like OP is dangerous because there is no health guarantee for the offspring.

          You can verify health while breeding for performance instead of conformation.

              No. It is not. You're just saying this again
              >Cutting peoples arms off is not unhealthy because first they are checked to make sure they are free of heart disease
              Just because there are good parts of conformation does not mean the entire breed standard is needed.
