Glad to see you post here and glad to see your still working that beast of a Corso in Vulcan!
I have much respect for you and team El Mesquital as I'm sure you've seen my posts on the Sacci board in reference to all your titles and accomplishments. Anyone that puts that much time and dedication into training a dog to accomplish as much as you have with the Corso, definetly needs a huge pat on the back and much deserving kudos as well. I truly respect your admiration for this breed and am grateful for what you have done in the working world with the Cane Corso. I am a long time believer in preserving the working qualities of this noble magnificent breed and give much praise to any others that do the same!
As for your question around multi-titled Corso's, there are very few around here, let alone Canada that obtain these. I know there are a few trying to participate in local Shutzhund clubs around here, but none I believe have a confirmed Shutz 1 title yet. There maybe a few with some AD or BH, but that's about it. Like Kenny says unfortunately we don't have the same venues for protection sports as the US does, so its difficult for us Canucks to participate. I know my good friend and highly respected dog trainier Tony Pallotta had some of the first protection sport titles like Iron dog trials, PSA, and other international venues with his Corso "Bruno" before even most knew of the breed. Also my dog Strykker's father "Aragorn" possessed some of the first working titles in Canada for a Corso as well, like GDT, HIC, and a few others.
Since we are not priveledged to these venues, sometimes we have put on our own. Since 2005 I have been hosting an event called the Wild West Working Showdown, very similar to the SACCI's Raduno working event. It has been very successful and it gives people a chance to win some prizes, trophies, titles and definitly bragging rights, and most of all an outlet for our dogs to hone in on their much talented skills!
Well before I write even a bigger story, I will finish off by saying that I will for sure keep you posted of any Corsi that do accomplish any official working titles. Who knows maybe I'll show up in your area with my protege "Rogue" at one of the upcoming Raduno events, and him and Vulcan can go head on in the hardest hitting event.
Thanks for the link to facebook, unfortunately I don't subscribe to that, but there are many on here that do. I'm sure I'll still be able to track Vulcans success's on other boards.
Take care Ron, and keep doing what your doing friend! Oh ya say hi to Roy for me and tell him I still want one of his dogs!
