Each breed of dog has a breed standard, a written statement of the ideal specimen. Dog shows evaluate how closely the dog conforms to its written standard, thus it is called “conformation”.

In the US the Cane Corso is judged by the AKC’s standard, in Europe it is the FCI. Though the wording may be slightly different, a god dog is a good dog when judged by either standard.

Certainly looks alone do not define the Cane Corso, but it is important that breed standards be honored and structure and type hopefully improved upon in each generation.
