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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Bullmastiff puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

We have a beautiful 5 year male Bullmastiff who has begun growling and snapping. Can you help? He is especially sensitive around food but also growls, on occasion, when approached. Any ideas what we can do? (the vet down here is afraid of him).

Your vet should never be afraid of your dog. So one, get a new vet. Two, your Bullmastiff is showing signs of food/possession aggression. What you need to do is to find a positive reinforcement trainer as soon as possible to stop the behavior before it gets worse. A growl is a warning before a bite. If you feel confident on working with your dog alone, look up Dr. Yin's low-stress handling website and watch her video's on working with dogs with food/possession aggression using counter-conditioning.

Yes Bullmastiffs can. I am a breeder and have sold a couple just for cases similar to yours. One is a therapy dog for a young child that has seizures ad alerts when one is about to occur. Also had one that was owned by an older child with cancer. He never left his side and mad many trips to St. Judes. The last few months of the boys life that dog never left his side. I have a few pictures that was sent to me from him you can view on our facebook page under Paw and Nanas Bullmastiffs. If you have any other questions I would be glad to help.

Any dog could be that way.It is because your friend has not met your dog and let your dog sniff him/her.Try introducing them to each other but have a leash on your dog just in case you have to pull him/her.

If your dog is displaying a behavior that is out of the norm, a vet visit is in order. If the vet rules out a medical problem, then contact your local Positive Reinforcement trainer and/or your local Dog Behaviorist for advice/training.

Larger breed dogs like a bullmastiff needs a food made for larger breeds and their dietary needs. Any quality food the first ingredient need to be a meat product or a meat meal. They are growing at a fast rate and regular puppy food could cause them not to reach thier full potential. Search for a quality large breed puppy food.

Brand isn't as important as the contents of the food for your dog. Do stay away from dog food that starts with 'corn' or has 'corn' in the next several ingredients listed. Bullmastiffs are very laid back dogs and they don't need extra calories and expecially not the extra carbs. We feed a food that is specified for large breed dogs.

a two year old bullmastiff is not recommended for your young son because the dog at two will have acquired a character trait that your young son may not be able to control. again a two year old bullmastiff will require an adult experienced trainer to retrain it and get the dog and your son to work together, bullmastiffs need somebody who can excersice some form of contoll over them.

You have posed a couple different questions. -Bullmastiffs are very dedicated to their families and especially the children. It would be really good if your son could go and visit this dog before it is brought to your home. This is just to let the dog get to know you and your son...I wouldn't expect any problem except this dog will miss his original family. It will take time and patience on your family's part and give him time. He will learn to love you all too. The other thing I noticed...you said he lived out in the country. Do you have a fenced yard for this dog? I am sure he will be wanting to go outside.

Hi, My bullmastiff girl had this at about 9 mths too, took her to my vet and he diagnosed puppy acne - he advised it would clear itself and didn't need any medication (unless infected) although they were quite angry. I just kept her muzzle clean, popped a little propolis gel on and they did clear. As a side note, my first girl, never had this - so it is not a common to all bully problem, or really anything to be too worried about. Just keep an eye on it and keep clean ...

Hello, I have owned/raised two mastiffs, and I must say they are one of the best breeds that I have experienced. Concerning the ears, my oldest mastiff's, Tuff, ears never sat forward regardless of how many times we taped them. Comparatively, Deuce's, my youngest mastiff, ears have always sat forward as they are supposed to according to breed standards. All efforts came up short becuase Tuff liked to have his ears back, and his ears fit his personality. In regards to bug bites and ticks, Tuff did not experience any undue consequences because of his ears. I hope this helps. And good luck with trying to get the ears to lay forward.

My bullmastiff’s ears sit back and are referred to as ‘flying ears’ I have been told I can tape them for a few days to try and correct the cartilage and enable them to flop forward. Mainly for ‘cosmetic’ purposes but it also has some health benefits for the dog, with regards to preventing insect bites eg. mosquito’s as well as ticks. I have tried taping his ears on 2 occasions and each time it has worked for about a week, then they sit back again. Please note, this does not injure or harm the dog in anyway and he doesn’t even notice. I always ensure his ears are kept nice and clean as well. Has anyone else done this or been given this advice from a vet or breeder like I have and can offer some advice?

I would definitely recommend it! We have an 11 month old bullmastiff and at about 8 months he started limping. It ended up being ununited aconeal process. We had to take him to OSU for surgery. It ended up being thousands of dollars. It's genetic and they say when it happens in one elbow it normally happens in all! So far we have seen no signs of it in his other legs. Insurance would have paid for all but $100 if we had it!!!

Ask your vet. Also, as a large breed the correct food is so important - Alpo is not a high quality food. Try Blue or Natural Balance ~ We fed our Bull mastiff 4 cups of food daily - 2 cups in AM and 2 cups in PM.

If you are looking at getting a purebred bullmastiff from a registered breeder, then be prepared to pay up to $2000. I have a 6 month old purebred bullmastiff which I got from a reputable breeder with many years of experience. When I picked him up at 8 weeks he was vet checked, hip and elbow scored, micro chipped and vaccinated. Do your research, a purebred although very expensive, is worth it as they are bred properly for temperament which is what you want in such a large breed.

Go to the beach early and leave by 9am. Bull mastiff's are prone to heat stroke, but by providing shelter and having water available at all times he should be good in the early morning and early evenings. Socialization is very, very important!

They are great with children. I had a 150 bull mastiff and a new born. When she was young, he would just sniff her and lay by her crib. As she began to crawl he would lay there as she tugged on his ears and lips. The older she got the closer they became. They would just follow each other around. Of course, make sure you teach your mastiff that your 5 year old is one of their leaders and that the mastiff must abide by what your child says.

They are creatures of ahbot just like us. It is best to have a dedicated area for her to go in. Make it "#1" friendly for her to go in all the time. Or if you are really against her going in the same spot, train her to go elsewhere. String cheese is a great way to get her to go elsewhere. Take her out to a different area tell her "potty" and when she goes, give her the treat of cheese.
