Overview
The Dogue De Bordeaux is a fearless breed and aggressive at times, this dog is not recommended for an average home environment. This breed is said to have split personalities. Calm and gentle at times, yet protective and dominant at others.
Character
The Dogue De Bordeax is used on many occassions for watch or guard dogging. This breed must be socialized well at an early age to avoid any aggressive problems in the future. Overall, this dog is not for the inexperienced.
Temperament
A very intimidating breed, this dog can also be calm and gentle given the proper home environment and socialization. This breed, if male, should not be placed in a home with another male. A powerful breed, the Dogue De Bordeaux does well with children but should always be supervised.
Care
An average shedder, this breed requires little to no maintenance. To remove excess hair, brushing with a firm bristle brush would be a good idea, however a wipe down with a dry towel or damp washcloth should be sufficient.
Coat
Better known as the French Mastiff, the Dogue De Bordeaux has a short, and soft coat. Has a distinct darker mask relative to the rest of his face. Requires little to no coat maintenance.
Training
The Dogue De Bordeaux has average intelligence, yet is very loyal and obedient and eager to please his owner. Requires a dominant trainer to avoid any problems as this is a fearless, large, and courageous breed. Does well in obedience, working, and watch dog sports.
Activity
The Dogue De Bordeaux requires quite a bit of exercise, and would do best with a relatively active owner. A large yard is suggested when considering this breed and long walks would do great. However, the short muzzle can cause this breed to tire out quickly so proper water should always be available.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Dogue De Bordeaux 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.

I live in the south and will the heat affect the french mastiff I live in South Carolina and will the heat affect the Dogue De Bordeaux to the point of a health issue?

It is very possible that this could happen. French Mastiff dogs are very prone to over-heating, although they can cool down with lots of water, shade, and air conditioning.

The heat is not as desirabl eto a Bordeaux as the cold may be. From what I hear,unlike most of us in the Northeast, those of you in the south often have the luxury of air conditioning. Some means of conditioning may be necessary for the dogue. Cedar chips in a doghouse not only keep the dogue dry and warm in the northeast winters,they also keep the dogue cool in the heat of the south. Start with a healthy specimen and the summer heat shouldn't be a major concern

It's much easier to start training at an early age, for the dog. For a dog that size, you can still correct the dog every single time it does this. Tell the dog "No" firmly and once while 'biting' (using your fingers mimicing a biting dog) the dog's neck one, quickly, and with enough pressure to get the dog's attention (not harming it). It helps to look at tips on shows and websites of Cesar Milan.

I have found with this breed they prefer kids and are very protective of children. They, like all dog breeds, will have their puppy times where they want to rough house and play and don't intentionally hurt people but sometimes don't realize how big they are. It's better to get a puppy and have it grow up with children so they can get used to how your child is, but always monitor your children to make sure they aren't being mean and hurtful to the dog. This type of mastiff is not as tall as others but has more energy as they were bred to be more athletic. This bred originally was used in battle and as pack dogs.

Dogue de Bordeauxes are actually one of very few kinds of dogs that recognize their own strength and will not use it unless their family is truly threatened, so your daughter would be in no danger. They are powerful dogs that need to be trained correctly and exercised regularly. Without assertive leadership this dog could be dangerous. They are slow to learn, but eager to please. I have done much reading on countless websites on the breed myself. I know these dogs are fantastic pets, but not every person is right for this dog - that's up to you to decide if it is right for you. it takes much research.

As far as the male is concerned I would say he would be fine to breed. The females however need to be two before breeding. Bordeauxs grow until they are two so trying to breed a one year old is a baby having a baby. They are still puppies.

I agree with jeepfamily 5, the french mastiff females are too young to breed. The male may or may not be, only a virility test can say for sure.

You should probably try to feed your female Dogue De Bordeaux smaller meals. One large meal a day can be detrimental to their health. teaching the dogue not to pull is an easy fix.

Feeding your Dogue De Bordeaux one large meal a day is dangerous and not recommended at her age she should be fed 2 or 3 small meals per day. This will help her put on weight and keep her healthier.

What kind of food do you feed your dog? We had problems with our Bordeaux with a constant ear infection until we changed her food. We now feed Life's Abundance and her ear cleared up. You can check out their food on our website: westonpetsupply.com. Is there any possibility he is getting stung? Hope you find out the problem! robin

I just purchased my DDB he is 4 months old, and I was just wondering a couple things.... firstly I feel bad crate training it has only been 11 days since ive had him, and he doesn't love the crate, and i leave tons of toys, and 1 treat in it and he never eats it. Also he wynes alot and always just seems bored, sleeps and doesn't love his walks either. I come home everyday for lunch to let him out because he wasnt potty trained all the way yet, so we both are woking on a routine, but just making sure I am on track with him. We went to our first vet visit he is 35 pounds, and like recently asked and stated from others, barks at noise, and likes people in the park but around other dogs, he just lays on his back, but when they walk away he wants to play. Thank you for your time, and to all who are considering this breed, he is my rock, heart and soul!!!!

You are right on track! He is showing submissive behavior towards other dogs that is grate and still wishes to play. Although he may whine in his cage he is learning that is his den and not a place to play. I would suggest to remove all the toys and put in a sheet or blanket that you intend to be his forever although you may have to clean it when he is finally house broke you can move it to the place you wont him to lie down and he will recognize he's sleeping wobby if you will

I think your doberman will settle into your routine soon. Is there any way he can be in your yard during your time away. If not the crate is necessary for your sanity and his protection. We got one of our Bordeaux at 4 months and it did take him longer to adjust to a new home than our puppies we purchased when they were younger. He is very aware of noises etc. because they are such good watchdogs. He is beginning to develop that side of his character more now that he is growing up. Keep taking him out to meet people and other dogs so he will be well socialized. Hope this helps.

stop babying him.....sorry.....but the crate is his "DEN"....dogs are clean animals and the sooner you learn not to take time off to come and let him out, the sooner he will gain bladder control. dogs usually don't have full bladder control until about 5 months of age but crating helps them get control much sooner. coming home every few hours will just prolong the process

I have Bordeaux and an American Eskimo, the AE has had seizures on and off, but I find she is a lot better when I have her on good food and a good vitamen supplement. You might try Life's Abundance food , you can order it on line and they sell supplements too.

I hate say this but it could be a brain tumor. My bordeaux died from a cancerous brain tumor, it started out with seizures. He got medicine from our vet and did well for awhile, then had a seizure and never came out of it. Before the seizures he used to do what I call sleep walking. He would get up from a nap and walk and stare at the wall. I would check with your vet about some kind of xray. I don't know how feasible this is. I hope this is not the case with your dog but be aware. I wish we had done so. I lost another bordeaux to lymphoma, unfortunately the cancer rate in this breed is up to 30%

Only when necessary. Worming should only be done after a positive fecal exam. There are different types of worms and he should be treated for the correct type. Flea tablets, never heard of it, I don't recommend it....if you have fleas and you can stand the pungent odor try eucalyptus oil.

Dogue De Bordeaux's are supposed to be stand offish with stranger's .. she bark's to warn you and she run's because she is a puppy and hasn't been shown how to great people yet and doesn't feel safe yet with her owner on who is the protector... and probably really shy.. Take her to a groomer that will groom her and let her stay out with the groomers and dogs and new people coming in and out and she will learn real fast and get over her fears of people, voices and stranger's.. and leave her for 2 hour's and 3 weeks later 3 hour's and so forth..

A Dogue De Bordeaux should be fed.....must be fed.....several small meals a day. A puppy should eat at least 3 times a day and at least 2 meals a day for the adult. Feeding a dogue one large meal daily will probably lead to trouble. It's possible for a dogue to eat 12 cups of food or more in one sitting....and puppies can eat as much as an adult. Once again, if you fed your dogue such an amount, it will only lead to severe complications. FOR AN ADULT FEED TWO MEALS OF 4 TO 5 CUPS OF A PREMIUM DOG FOOD. Meat is important to their diet too. If you were to feed only meet, the dog probably wouldn't eat as much or need as much. Much depends on what you're feeding the dogue, so there is no definitive answer. Once again for answers to this and other questions about your dogue de bordeaux, I suggest you join the breed club.

The Bordeaux is intelligent. It is protective but not overly the way a Rottweiller tends to be. it is leary of strangers but does love people and human interaction. of course it will be what you train it to be. protective training is highly discouraged. Their natural instincts are more than enough for most households and situations.

The Dogue would do fine in the colder climates as long as its not living out there. I wouldn't leave a Dogue out in the cold, however living in the house and going out to play in these climates would be fine. As you may already know, short coat dogs are not meant to "live" in outdoor cold climates.

The Dogue De Bordeaux lived soley for his master and family .. they want you 25 hour's a day meaning alway's.. if you don't have some one around day and night.. this isn't the Breed you Need...I have 2 from russia and there fine in cold weather just don't leave out side ...

For some reason, no profile for large and massive dogs I've run across has ever been close to correct. A friend of mine once owned a 300 lb English mastiff the size of a small pony. That a Dogue de Bordeaux would reach such a size doesn't surprise me at all.

I find it hard to believe that your dogue weighs 200 lbs. even though i have produced one this size myself. The original standard did call for a dogue of this size but that hasn't been the standard for 100 years. it is possible that you have a dogue with recessive traits. it is also possible that your dogue is not pure. send me a photo and i'll give you my opinion as to whether this is a recessive trait or possibly the result of a cross breeding, keeping in mind that without DNA you could never be too sure. dogue@prodigy.net

I have Europian lines and have DDB male from 165 to 200lbs and this is totally normal for the breed.. the American lines are smaller normally except from the good breeder's that keep them in this range for males 165 to 180lbs and then the hand full of 190 to 200lbs

My 7 week Bordeau, female is 15 lbs. The breader says that is perfect for her age. To think she will be more than a hundred pounds in ten months kinda scares me, but cute as a button...lol

Look for a dog food without Soy/Wheat/Corn products.. Blue Buffalo, Nurto Ultra, Presice are great.

dogues are individuals. some can thrive on sawdust, yet others given the best diet possible will fall apart. Solid Gold makes some of the best dog food in the world but is very expensive and it is always possible that dog food companies change the makeup of their food after it has become established and popular.

I feed my dogue a raw diet. Initially, I was apprehensive but this was due to not having done enough research. I changed his diet from commercial dog food to raw because @ 8 weeks old he always appeared "lethargic" (if you know what i mean). He never played with the kids or had the energy I thought he would have at his age. I noticed a dramatic change in his behaviour and appearance when i switched his diet. His bad breath went away, his coat became shinier and his energy levels picked up, his eyes became brighter and the gunk that came out of his eyes decreased. He's just so full of life. Im so glad I made the switch.

Raw and kibble mix is the best with DDB and that will keep them in perfect health .. keep them lean not fat.. let them be there DNA will bring them there size not you.. just grow them slow and healthy to protect there joint's and don't let them ever get fat and not a lot of long walk's befor a year .. general rule 5 minuted per month from 3 month's old..remember they will put on up to a pound a day at diffrent growth spurt's this first year so let them sleep and have there rest

ACTUALLY NO THE ONLY ISSUE I EVER HAVE HAD WITH THE DOGUE DE BORDEAUX MORE THAN ONCE ARE EAR INFECTIONS DUE TO THEIR FLOPPY EARS. BUT AS LONG AS YOU KEEP THEIR EARS CLEAN AND DRY THEY SHOULD NOT BECOME A BIG ISSUE.

What about hip dysplasia, BLOAT and cancer in the dogue de bordeaux? The main cause of death in this breed is cancer!! Buy from a backyard breeder and you have no idea what you are getting!!!! If you buy from a breeder who does not test their breeding pair -you are asking for trouble. THIS is NOT an inexpensive breed to own!!

Mange can be an issue for the first 2 years of the dogue de bordeaux life. The breed is one of many who are susceptible and more prone to developing mange. It is treatable and early intrevention can make it an non issue, although it will cost you to fix. So chose your pup well and go thru a good breeder who's responsible and up front about their dogs.

The dogue de Bordeaux shouldn't have a lot of health issues today. But they are susceptible to any of the maladies associated with large breed dogues, like hip dysplasia , cardio myopathy etc. etc. The gene pool today is sufficiently large enough to avoid most health issues. Unfortunately, breeders with the ethics, knowledge and resources to take advantage of such a large gene pool are not as readily available.
