Who would win a fight between a Doberman and a Cane Corso?

Hey guys,

I have been researching dog breeds for a while now and I am torn between getting a Doberman or a Cane Corso. While I love both breeds, I can't help but wonder which one would win in a fight between the two. I know it's not an ideal question to ask but I want to be prepared in case of any emergency situations.

I live in a neighborhood where there are a lot of stray dogs and I want a dog that can protect me and my family if needed. I have read that both these breeds are great guard dogs but I want to know which one is more dominant.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hello everyone,

As an experienced dog owner, I believe the question of who would win in a fight between a Doberman and a Cane Corso is irrelevant and quite frankly, inappropriate. Both breeds are incredibly intelligent and protective, and their innate talents should be focused on positive personal protection and guarding, rather than pit them against each other.

I understand that there may be situations where a dog may need to protect their owner from external threats, but it is important to remember that every dog's behavior is ultimately determined by their training and socialization. Any responsible owner should ensure that their dog receives proper socialization, obedience training, and guidance on positive behavior to become good guard dogs.

In my experience, it is crucial to choose a breed that fits your lifestyle and energy levels, and not blindly base your decision on the assumption of superiority in fights. As responsible, loving dog owners, we should always prioritize the safety and well-being of our furry friends.

Let's celebrate the unique characteristics and skills of each breed without promoting any harmful, aggressive behaviors.


Hey there,

I have experience with both Dobermans and Cane Corsos and in my opinion, it's tough to say which one would come out on top in a fight. Both breeds are powerful and have strong protective instincts.

That being said, I would personally lean towards the Cane Corso as the winner. They are larger and more muscular than Dobermans, giving them an advantage in a physical altercation. However, I do want to stress that dog fights should never be encouraged or sought after.

Instead, I would recommend focusing on training and socialization for your chosen breed. Both Dobermans and Cane Corsos can make excellent guard dogs with the proper training and care. It's important to remember that any dog, regardless of breed, can be aggressive or unpredictable without proper training and socialization.

Hope that helps!


Hello there,

I have had the privilege of owning both breeds and while they both make great guard dogs, I have to say that I believe the Dobermans would win in a fight. They are incredibly agile and have a high prey drive, making them excellent protectors.

However, I want to emphasize that dog fighting is never acceptable and any aggression should be discouraged through training and socialization. It's also important to note that every dog is unique, and there's no way to predict how any individual dog will behave in a given situation.

Ultimately, the most important thing in choosing a breed is finding one that matches your lifestyle and personality. Both Dobermans and Cane Corsos require a lot of exercise and attention, so it's important to evaluate your own needs before making a decision.

I hope this helps!


Hey there,

I agree that dog fighting is cruel and should never be encouraged or discussed. It's important to understand that any breed of dog can be aggressive, regardless of its size, temperament or history.

As a pet owner, I have come to learn that a dog's behavior is mostly affected by their upbringing, socialization, and training. It's essential to understand the breed's characteristics, such as energy levels, prey drive, and protective instincts, before deciding to own one.

Both Dobermans and Cane Corsos can make excellent guard dogs, but they need an experienced owner who can give them proper training, exercise, and attention. Apart from that, it's also critical to keep them healthy and give them enough mental stimulation to prevent any destructive behavior.

To sum it up, we must remember that dogs are smart, loving creatures that deserve to be treated with respect, care, and responsibility. They are not fight machines but loyal companions that bring us joy and happiness.


Hello everyone,

I agree with what has been mentioned here, and I want to add that the question of who would win in a fight between a Doberman and a Cane Corso is not only inappropriate but also lacks context. Despite their guarding instincts, dogs are not meant to fight but rather be a part of a loving family. It's essential to prioritize socialization and training to promote good behavior and obedience.

Moreover, I feel that choosing a pet based solely on its ability to protect is misguided. While a dog's protective nature is an important trait, it's not the sole factor in choosing a pet. It is important to choose a breed that matches our lifestyle, needs, and energy levels so that we can provide the most optimal environment for our furry friend.

In my experience, a dog's behavior is based on how they are treated and the love and attention they receive. Let's focus on promoting positive dog ownership, obedience training, and fostering healthy relationships. Together, we can create a community that respects and values our furry friends.


Hey guys,

I don't have personal experience with either Dobermans or Cane Corsos, but I believe it's important to understand that dog fighting is cruel and unacceptable. It's not just illegal but also a severe form of animal abuse, and any discussion about the topic does more harm than good.

Instead of worrying about which breed would win in a hypothetical fight, the focus should be on responsible breeding practices and proper training to ensure that these breeds are bred with proper temperament and that they receive proper socialization to be well-behaved and excellent guard dogs.

As dog owners, we have a responsibility to ensure that our pets are not mistreated or abused, and that they are trained in a humane and ethical way. Let's promote responsible dog ownership and focus on raising happy, healthy, and well-behaved pets.
