Apex Policies

All families must be approved.  A Cane Corso is not for everyone.  We reserve the right to refuse sale to anyone at anytime for any reason. 

All litters are carefully planned, far in advance, with specific goals in mind. 

We focus on stable temperament, health and type as stated by the FCI (Italian) standard.

All puppies receive individual human attention and interaction on a daily basis from the moment of birth.  We realize the importance of early socialization and stimulation for developing temperament and take this responsibility seriously. 

All puppies will have:


-their tails docked


-rear dewclaws removed


-microchip implanted


-vaccinations will be up to date & you will receive these records with your puppy


-routine wormings done


The litter will be registered with AKC or FCPR

AKC offers limited registration.  Upon proof of completing puppy kindergarten, your AKC papers will be mailed to you.

FCPR (Federacion Canofila de Puerto Rico) is the designated FCI registry for the USA. FCPR does NOT offer limited registration therefore puppies without breeding rights, will receive their FCI papers upon proof of spay/neuter (and puppy kindergarten).

We feel that puppy kindergarten and basic obedience are essential for this breed's development and socialization therefore we require every family to take these classes with their puppy. Our policies are designed to ensure that these important classes do not get neglected.


We guarantee our puppies to be free of crippling hip dysplasia and congenital health defects for their first 26 months of age. We will be more than happy to forward a copy of the contract to you so you can review our terms.


Reservations are done by picking order with temperament matching in mind.  All applications must be approved then you may select your puppy after 10 weeks of age in the order your deposit arrived.  Money is nonrefundable.

If you are interested in reserving a puppy, please fill out our application..

Stud Service

We offer stud service to some of our males. We can help you to determine if one of our males is well suited for your female.

We like to see the female in person if possible. If not, photos of the female.

The following is to be presented prior to the breeding taking place:

-Bitch’s registration/pedigree

-Hip certification

-Bitch must be at least 18 months of age at the time of the breeding

Stud fee is due prior to services being rendered. We offer fresh chilled semen as well as frozen. Frozen should only be utilized where fresh chilled is not feasible (shipping out of the country, for future use, etc). Feel free to contact us for more info on frozen semen. We work closely with a reproduction specialist and can ship worldwide. Semen will arrive with a semen evaluation report which indicates count, motility, etc so you will know upon arrival that the semen is sufficient to achieve pregnancy. If done by fresh chilled, your stud fee will include two collections shipped for arrival at your vet clinic on the two most optimal days of the female‘s season (as should be determined by progesterone tests). If done by frozen, can be shipped in advance and waiting at your clinic for your female to come into season.

If for some reason the pregnancy does not take, we will repeat the procedure one time on the bitch‘s next season. All veterinary fees, transportation and shipping are to be paid by the owner of the female and are in addition to the stud fee. We do not mark these items up. Veterinary fees can be paid directly to our clinic.

We recommend fresh chilled over natural as it involves the least risk, is the most efficient & usually the most economical (depending on geographic location) and because in this case you know for sure that the semen is good.
