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.

You can feed neo's any kind of meat and bones including chicken but raw, cooking bones causes them to splinter making them dangerous for animals to eat,

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.

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.

If you plan to show, you need to plan on traveling to different states. There are plenty of dogs in the north east to compete against. Atlanta has actually become the spot of choice for the neos because it is a good mid way for all exhibitors. The national specialty is being held there this fall.

You need to read and understand the "standard" for the neo to grasp the qualities that make a good show dog. You equally need to learn and understand the issues that these dogs can have, so you can try to avoid them. It is very tall order for a newbie to be able to pick a show pup. You will need the help of the breeder for that.

Most Neapolitans are really not fruit eaters! Citrus, grapes and apples (with the core) are not considered good for any dogs, so the same goes for the Mastino. Cooked chicken bones are VERY BAD, however, RAW chicken bones are VERY GOOD! I have been feeding all my dogs raw meat and bones of all types for nearly 10 year now and they love it! NEVER a problem from the bones! I feed chicken quarters, deer rib cages, whole pig feet you name it and they just crunch it down. Try freezing them and feeding them frozen in the hot weather....even more fun for them!

As a puppy Neapolitan Mastiff's need a low protien food, around 26%. To fast of growth causes growing problem in the giant breeds. Low protien slows the growth. Also, no soy. No one brand is best and everyone has the one they love, so just look for one that does not have corn as a first ingredient, generally chicken or chicken products.

Overall Neapolitan Mastiff's mature and become macho, brother/father or not! So all may go well for a couple of years and then there could be a dominance battle. Certainly not always, but over two non-neutered males together is not a good idea. Now neutered is a different story. Neutered young, with no learned aggression, things will most likely work out fine.

The Neapolitan Mastiff is a tough breed to buy. Not all that many breeders show their dogs but that does not mean they are not good dogs. Titled dogs are a bit more of a guarantee that your puppy will follow in their footsteps, but certainly nothing in stone. I have seen MANY Mastino that could be shown and finished but they never get in a ring. So to me, you can find some great dogs with untitled parents in this country. You need to know what you are looking for, but don't depend on a championship to get yourself a quality dog.

My Neapolitan was great with cats and other dogs, as long as its not 2 females or 2 males. Generally they like to hang around the house and their people, but occasionally their nose gets the best of them and they start to wander. Although we did have an occasional wandering our Neo never just took off or ran from you.

1 Comment

It means that sire earned a tittle of chamion at one point in his life. The dog competed against other dogs in the same category and proved to be the best of his kind in the especific venue. This does not "affect" the breeding of Neapolitan Mastiffs, it just adds a higher monetary value to the potential litters the dog is reponsible for.

Because we like them that way! It is called selective breeding for traits that are specific to the breed. It is just the desired look for the Mastino. Certainly not for everyone, but neither is the pencil nose of a Collie.
