How Often Do Cane Corsos Poop?
The frequency of a Cane Corso’s bowel movements can vary from dog to dog, just as it does for any other breed. Several factors influence how often a Cane Corso will poop, including their age, diet, activity level, and overall health.
On average adult Cane Corso dogs poop once a day, although some poop two or three times per day which is normal. Puppies poop frequently, sometimes as much as five times a day or more.
