Introduction

The Blue Blood Cane Corso is a hybrid dog with roots in the Southern United States and the mountains of Italy. The Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog is distantly related to the English Bulldog, and the breed was developed by a man named Papa Buck Lane, who wished to develop a dog that would make a great guard dog as well as a companion. The Cane Corso was bred for wild boar hunting, much like its relative, the American Pit Corso. When choosing activities that fit the Blue Blood Cane Corso, consider activities that incorporate both mental and physical stimulation.

Activity description
The flirt pole is a great physical activity that encourages physical activity. To be sure, some pet parents enjoy the flirt pole as much as the pup because it provides both humans and dogs with great physical activity. You can make your own flirt pole by gathering jute string (available in the craft section of your local store), a toy that you don't mind attaching to the pole, and an old fishing pole. Certainly, you don't necessarily have to use a fishing pole, but this will provide more flexibility for a large, muscular dog when compared to using other options. The flirt pole can be used indoors in an open area, or you can go outdoors and run and play with your Blue Blood Cane Corso.
Step
1
Get started
First, get yourself a flirt pole. You can either purchase a flirt pole at a pet supply store, or you can make your own flirt pole using an old fishing pole (for flexibility), jupe craft string, and a favorite toy (just be sure that you don't mind making a hole in the toy. Securely attach the toy and let the fun begin!
Step
2
Introduce the game
When working with the flirt pole, you want to make sure that your dog understands the command "Give." With a dog as strong as the Blue Blood Cane Corso, this command is imperative. You may need to practice with a toy and treats prior to bringing out the actual flirt pole.

3
Play time!
Once you are sure your dog is ready to play properly, the main instruction is to just have fun! You can play indoors with the flirt pole, or you can move outdoors. While outside, you can hold the pole high enough to encourage your pup to jump. You can play a little tug of war with the pole. You may find yourself running or incorporating all kinds of moves to get your dog in motion!

Activity description
The Blue Blood Cane Corso can be a rather high-energy dog. Cycling provides you with a bit of exercise for yourself as well as a way to help dispel all that doggie energy. Do you live near a park with a biking trail? Do you lack a human partner with whom to cycle? Your Blue Blood Cane Corso is a born companion and guardian! Train your companion from an early age so that the pup knows how to behave as you cycle (remember, some pups have a natural tendency to chase anything with wheels). The object is for your dog to walk or run alongside you as you traverse the biking trail.
Step
1
Prep stretch
Stretching is important for you as well as for your dog. In fact, stretching is something you can do WITH your dog. Have your pup stand up, and take hold of their back leg just above the knee. Slowly help your pup raise their leg one at a time. To stretch the front legs, place your hands under the elbow and simply lift. You can also do back stretches with your pup. This will keep your dog limber and flexible for many years.
Step
2
Find an appropriate location
While cycling in your neighborhood would likely be best, sometimes there isn't quite enough room for both you and your large Cane Corso on the sidewalk. The park, a dog park that allows for bicycles, or perhaps a hiking trail is the best place to go cycling with your pup. Ensure your dog has excellent command abilities so that they know they must remain with you at all times.
Step
3
Have fun
Invest in at least thirty minutes, three times per week. Be sure to stretch with your pup prior to hitting the bike trail. This activity should be done outdoors, and your pup will burn off a great deal of energy when participating alongside you.

Activity description
Because the Blue Blood Cane Corso is a very active dog, competitive dog sports will definitely allow the dog to burn off their energy in a positive manner. Flyball is one of the most common competitive dog sports that incorporates a dog's natural desire to chase and fetch. Disc dog is a similar activity within competitive dog sports that allows the dog to burn off a great deal of energy while having fun. Some dogs participate in carting, canicross (along with their human partner), and assorted field trials. These sports trails generally take place outdoors during warmer weather. Human partners may be a part of the competition as well.
Step
1
Canine agility fun
This is one of the more common competitive dog sports in which a human handler drives the dog through an obstacle course of sorts. All courses will be different. Some of them require a dog to jump over an obstacle; others, such as the agility pole, requires the dog to run through the course. Handlers are responsible for creating a game plan of sorts for directing the pup through the course.
Step
2
Obedience trial training
Sanctioned by the American Kennel Club, obedience trials are a set list of items a dog must successfully complete. This is more than the usual "sit" or "stay." Dogs generally must be able to heel, recall, sit, stand, and retrieve (among other commands).
Step
3
Herding trials
The Blue Blood Cane Corso's ancestors were herding dogs, so it is only natural that your pal competes in herding trials. In this activity, the dog is required to move an animal (usually a sheep or cow; no harm comes to the animal) around following the commands of their handlers. Dogs may be expected to move a sheep from an enclosure to outside a gate, for example.
