I think with a large molosser-type dog, if a person is going to do any sort of bitework, that early control work and OUT is very important to teach, especially in today's litigious society.   Not only control in bitework, but basic obedience and 'exposure (socialization)' is also very important.   I have had my eye on the Cane Corso breed for some time, but it's hard to find people who actually participate and title their dogs in any dogsport/suitwork. I have met several CC's in person, and know a 'local' breeder who has some nice stock but does not 'prove' working abilities (through titling).    Although,  I don't think her dogs would have trouble with protecting any home/person from the average bad guy, as most of them would rather move onto another target vs having to potentially deal with one of these dogs.

Koots, I will be honest with you and tell you that I dont trust any of those breeds, Presas, Corsos, etc. I have never had a bad experience with one, but, there is something that does not allow me feeling trustful around them.

Agree Hired Dog they just look and ACT suspicious.

A co-worker of mine just got a CC puppy recently, and now the dog is about 9 months old. He says it's great with the kids, a mellow and well-behaved companion dog but with some natural suspicion as relayed through stories of the dog being very watchful/mindful of sketchy people when being walked. I have yet to meet this young male CC, but my co-worker has some dog experience although not 'sport' or working dog.

The other CCs that I have met have been from different breeders, one was very friendly/open greeting me from the back of his truck (with owner present) and the other one was at my dog club when I first started going there (the dog handler did not stay around). The one at the dog club was low drive, low energy but neutral enough that I could help the handler and not worry about being bitten when taking the leash.

I think the CC and PC breeds have innate natural defence/suspicion, but with the correct handling and conscientious training, could be reliable/safe protectors. Unfortunately, they are now becoming the next 'tough guy's' dog and being bred by, and sold to unscrupulous people.

A Presa Canario is featured in the film Bullet Head. He looks impressive covered in gore and blood. Silly crime flick, but surprisingly pro-dog...

hired, this mali in video did wrong... from point of sport but acted absolutely correct from point of surviving in fight.
protection dog should never allow opponent to make a moves, which can pose threat to dog's life.
that's why fixation of dog on one point bite during the training is a totally wrong if that dog being trained for real confrontation against human.

here is another example of correct approach in training
