2023 Cane Corso Campionato Show
"Campionato” means “contest” in Italian. This conformation campionato is a way to showcase Cane Corsos who can excel in both performance events and exhibit correct breed type characteristics. While the conformation show just judges the dogs adherence to the breed standard, temperament will also be generally evaluated during the time in the ring. While competing in the performance competition at this trial is encouraged, it is not a requirement for entry. Any Cane Corso with an AKC, UKC, ICCF, or FCI registration can enter the conformation show.
