Overview

The Bullmastiff makes a great companion, and guard dog. Although intimidating at times, this breed can be very affectionate. Loving human attention, this breed is calm, gentle, and even-tempered.

Character

Being shy around strangers, this dog should be properly socialized during puppyhood. Used many times as an alert or guard dog, this breed should also be introduced to other animals at an early stage to avoid any altercations that may arise. The Bullmastiff is a powerful, yet at times docile breed.

Temperament

This willful dog requires a firm trainer to avoid any dominance issues. The Bullmastiff is fairly good-natured, sweet, and loveable, however this dog is not recommended for the average owner. His sheer size means he should not be placed in a home with small children as unintentionally, this breed can easily knock a child down.

Care

A firm bristle brush or rubber brush should be used on this breed occasionally to remove any dead or loose hair. Very little shedding, the Bullmastiff does not require much maintenance when it comes to grooming. As this dog does tend to slobber, the mouth should be regularly cleaned.

Coat

Having a great coat for weather protection, the hair on the Bullmastiff is very short. With a distinct black mask around muzzle, the coat on this breed should be dense and somewhat coarse to the touch.

Training

The Bullmastiff is sensitive to the tone of your voice, but should be handled firmly if this breed is to succeed in training. Can do well in obedience training, and does exceptionally well as a guard or watch dog.

Activity

A lazy breed, to avoid weight problems this breed should be sufficiently exercised regularly. The Bullmastiff does enjoy long walks or jogs, and would do well with an average sized yard.
