Overview
This ancient breed was primarily used as a guard dog. The Mastiff was favored by nobility as a hunting companion and revered by peasants as a family and livestock protector. They were also used as arena gladiators where they participated in bull, bear, and dog combat. The Mastiff was nearly extinct by the end of WWII, but was saved with imports from the United States and Canada.
Character
A massive, muscular, and powerful dog, the Mastiff is one of the heaviest of breeds. Males are capable of exceeding 200 pounds. They have an imposing and dominant demeanor. Mastiffs are fearless, alert, and extremely courageous. Often referred to as the Gentle Giant, they are a combination of dignity and grandeur.

Does your Mastiff bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Mastiff is a watchful, reliable, and intelligent breed. They are exceedingly loyal and deeply devoted to their family. This breed thrives on human companionship and affection and does not do well if left alone for extended periods of time. The Mastiff does best in a home with older considerate children. They do not do well with other household pets they have not been raised with. This breed is naturally protective and is extremely possessive of their family and home. The Mastiff is not recommended for the novice, inexperienced, or passive owner.
Care
The Mastiff requires minimal grooming. Occasional brushing with a firm bristle brush will suffice. Bathing or dry shampooing should be done when necessary. The Mastiff is prone to hip and elbow dysplasia, bloat, ectropion, PRA, cardiomyopathy, and gastric torsion. They also have a tendency to drool and snore.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Mastiff is a double coat breed. The outer coat is short, coarse, and straight. The under coat is dense and fits closely to the body. The color of the coat comes in apricot, fawn, or brindle. The nose, muzzle, and ears are black. This breed is an average shedder.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are crucial for this breed. The Mastiff requires a dominant handler. They do not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. They are eager to please but may be difficult to train. This breed does best with firmness, fairness, patience, respect, and consistency. They excel in guarding, military and police work, weight pulling, and search and rescue. 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 Mastiff puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Mastiff is slow moving and is inclined to be rather lazy. Daily securely leashed walks or a play session in a safely fenced small yard are highly recommended to keep them happy and fit. They will do okay in an apartment or condominium dwelling provided they are given stimulation, attention, and sufficient exercise. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

I would like your opinion on whether a Mastiff would make a good service dog. I have multiple sclerosis and it affects my balance. I am considering using a Mastiff to aid due to their size. Thank you for your time.

The Mastiff is a beautiful breed of dog, however, they are not considered good as Service Dogs. The reason being is that the Mastiff lives an average of 8 years. It takes an average of 3 years for a dog to become a Service Dog and a dog should be retired 2 - 3 years before the dog's average ending lifespan. Meaning that you would only be able to use your dog as a Service Dog for about 1 - 2 years. That is not fair to you or the dog. I have issues with my ears which tends to affect my balance. My Service Dog is a European Landseer Newfoundland. They are a large dog like the Mastiff, however, their average lifespan is 10 - 12 years compared to the Mastiff. You could also look at the Beauceron, Bouvier des Flandres, German Shepherd, and Giant Schnauzer which are all large breed dogs that have good life spans and that could handle physically moving a person, helping them up or keeping them upright.

Our male Mastiff was a service dog at age two, a therapy dog for a time and a show champion. He lived to be eleven years old. He weighed 207 pounds when he earned his championship and was solid to say the least. His best feature was his gentle nature; he could bark but almost never did. My wife was an Alzheimer's patient but loved to walk our farm for exercise, always accompanied by her understanding, accommodating Mastiff companion. I never worried about them, he always brought her home. I miss them both.

What should I feed my Mastiff?

A grain-free, high quality dog food is the best thing to feed your Mastiff. Brands you can look into are Evo, Orijen, Acana, Taste of the Wild, Now, Go!, Back to Basic's, Black Gold Grain Free, DNA Dog Food, Earths Pride, Horizon Legacy, and Wysong. But there are many other grain-free brands that are just as good. Each and every brand will be priced differently, so find a grain-free dog food that is in your price range. Remember, the dog food will cost more to buy, but it lasts much, much longer then low-cost/low-nutrition dog food.

Agree, grain free is the way to go when feeding kibble.

Mastiffs have a very sensitive stomach so you cannot change the food too often and it should be mixed with the old food so they get used to it slowly. Also a probiotic is very helpful. It's like eating yogurt for us it helps with the enzymes in your dogs belly. Mine had a chicken allergy had red under his joints so the vet recommended limited ingredience lamb or beef.

We have an English Mastiff that is reverse brindle. Does that make her worth more? Our English Mastiff looks like a Bengal tiger. We have her up for sale but are not sure if she is rare or if it is more common.

I raise Mastiffs and have a female that about half of her pups are reverse brindle, I don't see it as rare. I would look online for Mastiffs for sale in your area to help determine what they are selling for in your area. Keep in mind age & training your dog has had.

Reverse brindle is not rare it is actually a color fault. Breeders out there advertising reverse brindles at higher prices are just out for money. Some don't even get the reverse coat right (some with a more black with very few stripes say those are reverse when indeed a lighter coat with very few stripes is reverse, either way reverse is a color fault). I own 2 and with their overall conformation I'd take a color fault any day over any other fault or health issue. My male stud produces it in every breeding so most def not rare to throw a lighter colored brindle.

It is normal. Your Mastiff is dreaming. My dog will bark in her sleep.

My Mastiff is 2 yrs old and she eats 50lbs every two weeks.

Mine is a 3-year-old, 180 pound male Mastiff. He eats about 6 cups a day as well as treats. 37 pound bags last about 3.5 weeks.

Buy a good dog food and read the recommendations on the bag. My 200 pound English mastiff ate about 6 cups a day. My Cane Corso female weighs 77 pounds, still a puppy, eats only 3 cups a day. I feed them blue large breed.
