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.

You didn't mention the age of the puppy. between 4 to 6 months, a Bordeaux puppy will teethe. You should have toys and treat he'll prefer over your furniture. I'm available at 860-742-5333 if you have more specific questions Hot Diggity http://diggitydogue.com

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.

is a seven year old french mastiff male to old to breed? We have two female french mastiffs they just turned one, and we want to breed them and we found a beautiful male mastiff that would be perfect but he is seven years old, and we are wondering if that is to old to breed, and if there was anything we could do to make this happen>

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.

We live in Cape Cod, MA, we have an 11 month old male French Mastiff,since the spring he has been getting welts along both sides of his face. We've taken him to the Vet twice and we've just finished up his second round of a prednisone taper. We've ruled out food allergy and have been told it may be an environmental allergy? Any ideas, suggestions?

I have a bordeaux that had the same problem. After 2000. and a lot of test that gave us no answer it was food. That is why it is only on his mouth it takes about 40 days to go away. We only feed our dog wellness the blue and yellow bag you can not give them any table scraps at all. try it it cant hurt. Hope this helps

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!!!!

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

He had a seizure on monday but the vets have run numerous tests and can't find anything wrong with him he doesn't usually have fits. I'm wondering if he has overdone it in the heat as we had him over the field on sunday

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%

Sounds like a nutrition deficit. Put your dogue de Bordeaux on a better grade of food.

She has a tummy ache dogs eat grass when they feel ill it adds fiber for their stool. If it keeps occurring you should take her to see a vet.
