Overview
The Neapolitan Mastiff is very loyal and steady. This breed can be rather intimidating making him a good watchdog. This dog can be wary of strangers, making him seem more intimidating.
Character
The Neapolitan Mastiff is a very loyal guardian and will protect his family and territory. This breed is large and powerful, and should not be left unsupervised around small infants, however is very affectionate.
Temperament
The Neapolitan Mastiff, no matter how large or intimidating, is not aggressive. He is very affectionate, and surprisingly gentle. However, he has a strong protective drive making him regularly used as a guard or watchdog. This powerful breed does well with children if they are older, and can do well with other pets if properly socialized and trained.
Care
The Neapolitan Mastiff is very easy to care for grooming wise. Brushing with a rubber brush occasionally will remove dead or loose hair. This is an average shedding breed.
Coat
The Neapolitan Mastiff, known for his massive wrinkles, has a very short and dense coat. The coat should be of the same length all over the body. Hair should remain straight, and should not have any fringe.
Training
Training this dog should be started at an early age to avoid dominance issues. The handler should always remain firm and consistent. This breed can become over-protective so he should always be trained with a firm hand.
Activity
The Neapolitan Mastiff should always have regular exercise, meaning at least two long walks per day to remain healthy and active. This large breed should have an average sized yard.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Neapolitan Mastiff 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.

how much does it cost to feed a mastiff

2 Comments

Anonymous

The cost of feeding all depends on your dog, what brand of food you want to feed your dog and where you live. But a A grain-free, high quality puppy food is the best thing to feed your dog. Some brands to look at are Acana, Origjn, Taste of the Wild, Life Mates, Now and Go! Even though the food costs more, you feed less to your dog and remember this saying: The better the food, the less vet visits you have.

It didn't cost us anymore to feed our Neo than it did to feed our other dogs, between 3 large breed dogs we would go through a 50lb bag of Purina in about two weeks.

We have a 4 1/2 month old Golden Doodle. Based on this I assume we can give him a prime rib bone today. Yes??

Apples are fine. As far as chicken bones, only raw and supervised. Never cooked chicken bones. Also I would include a premium dog food so that your dog gets a proper protein and fat ratio.

NORMALY IS 24 TO 48 HOURS, ITS RARE FOR MASTINOS TO HAVE ONLY ONE PUP. UNLESS YOU HAVE DONE AN ULTRA SOUND, YOUR DOG MIGHT GIVE BIRTH TO SERVERAL UP TO 14 PUPS.

Neapolitan Mastiffs can be very domineering. I did not see if you had wrote if they are the same sex or not. If so, same sex aggression is very prevalent in the breed. Be prepared that they will never get along, and things will only get worse. Sounds to be that they are both alpha. There will be a constant fight to try and fight for the alpha chair in the house. Unless you are willing to keep them separate at all times, I am sad to say you must part with one of them. I would hate if you had small children, and you or them tried to break up a fight. Things can get messy quick, and I would hate for anyone to get hurt.

Any mix of males and females can create a problem when the females are in heat. If the girls are fixed and the boy is too than you will have less issues. Two intact males can be a problem together. All females does not mean there will be no fighting. At the end of the day it will depend on the dogs themselves. Generally, you can have females together without a problem.
