The teeth

The appearance and development of the teeth happens on set times. When the dog is about 4 months old, he will start teething. An extra large bone (rawhide bone) can prevent that your pup will chew your shoes or furniture. They do this chewing to get rid of the pain which the appearing teeth cause. Such a rawhide bone can prevent that you have to punish your puppy while all he really wanted is to get rid of the pain. Such unnecessary punishments should be avoided at any costs. So, be prepared.

The following chart will tell you when which teeth start showing and changing:

Fangs start showing at 3 to 4 weeks.
The third and forth premolar appear after 3 to 4 weeks.
The third front teeth develops at the age of 4 weeks..
The two middle front teeth develop at the age of 4 to 5 weeks.
The second premolar (P2) shows after 4 to 5 weeks.
The first molar appears after about 4 months.
The first premolar (P1) appears after 4 to 5 months.
The front teeth and fangs change at the age of 4 to 5 months.
The second molar in the under jaw appears after 4 to 5 months.
The second molar in the upper jaw appears after 5 to 6 months.
The premolars change when the dog is 5 to 6 months old.
The third molar appears after 6 to 7 months.
Sometimes a changing tooth stays in. First one can wait this out to see if it might fall out by itself. Is the tooth still there at the age of 9 months, consult your veterinarian.

From experience we can state that the Cane Corso is often early to the above chart. The first teeth often start showing sooner and also the teething can already start at the age of 3 months.
