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.
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.

Does your Dogue De Bordeaux bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Dogue De Bordeaux puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

I live in California, and I am having trouble finding any pups for sale. Are Dogue De Bordeaux's not accustomed to a hot climate?

1 Comment


No, the Dogue De Bordeaux is not used to such a hot climate such as in California. The short nose and wrinkles on the face make it difficult for the dog to cool themselves off. They don't do well in heat and can die from heat stroke really easily. I suggest going to the AKC website so see if there are any registered breeders in the California area.

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

I have a Dogue De Bordeaux, he is male. I didn't get any training for him he tears up everything How can I stop my Dogue De Bordeaux from being so aggressive jumping up on people



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 mimicking 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.

Few questions before buying. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me good information about the Dogue De Bordeaux breed of dog, but my main concern is my daughter as she gets very excited and wants to play although very gentle and caring, but I want to have the right sort of dog and not vicious.



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 Bordeaux's 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.


The Dogue de Bordeaux is known for its gentleness and patience with children. It is not a vicious breed and chances are it would protect your child or anyone else's child even from their own parents.


They are one of the best dogs with children they are gentle giants and are protective of there family.

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 too 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.
