The Bullmastiff makes a great companion, and guard dog. Although intimidating at times, this breed can be very affectionate. Loving human attention, this breed is calm, gentle, and even-tempered.
Being shy around strangers, this dog should be properly socialized during puppyhood. Used many times as an alert or guard dog, this breed should also be introduced to other animals at an early stage to avoid any altercations that may arise. The Bullmastiff is a powerful, yet at times docile breed.
This willful dog requires a firm trainer to avoid any dominance issues. The Bullmastiff is fairly good-natured, sweet, and loveable, however this dog is not recommended for the average owner. His sheer size means he should not be placed in a home with small children as unintentionally, this breed can easily knock a child down.
A firm bristle brush or rubber brush should be used on this breed occasionally to remove any dead or loose hair. Very little shedding, the Bullmastiff does not require much maintenance when it comes to grooming. As this dog does tend to slobber, the mouth should be regularly cleaned.
Having a great coat for weather protection, the hair on the Bullmastiff is very short. With a distinct black mask around muzzle, the coat on this breed should be dense and somewhat coarse to the touch.
The Bullmastiff is sensitive to the tone of your voice, but should be handled firmly if this breed is to succeed in training. Can do well in obedience training, and does exceptionally well as a guard or watch dog.
A lazy breed, to avoid weight problems this breed should be sufficiently exercised regularly. The Bullmastiff does enjoy long walks or jogs, and would do well with an average sized yard.

Annual cost of owning a Bullmastiff puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Bullmastiffs true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

Anonymous asked:
I live in the country on 2.5 acres but do not have a fence all round it. Also live on a dead end road. I am 82 years old and at one time I raised and trained Dobermans. How big of an adjustment would I have in getting a Mastiff?

1 Comment


The average Doberman weighs in at 70 - 95lbs, while the Bullmastiff ranges from 95 - 135lbs. This breed is not only heavier, but it is much more powerful. Since you have the experience with Dobermans, you are well aware of the loyalty and protective instincts of a protection breed. Because of this, you should understand that socialization and training are key to a well mannered dog. Since you don't have a fence around your property, I would suggest that you purchase a large run or only fence a small portion of your property for your dog. This breed is stubborn and a little independent at times and because of that, they can sometimes have the itch to wander. In your area, since houses are spread out few and far between, a loose dog could get into quite a bit of trouble and possibly be seen as a threat if the neighbors in your area do not know about your dog. It may be a good idea to look into breed specific rescues and take in an adult Bullmastiff so that you are not having to go through the puppy stage at your age. This breed lives an average of 8 - 10 years, and so getting a puppy may not be your best option. Unless you have a dedicated family member or friend whom is willing to help with training and to take in the dog should something happen to you before the dog passes; an already adult dog that is looking for a home may be a better idea.

My husband and I are thinking of getting a bullmastiff but we do have 2 children one 6 and a 2 year old. We also have 2 male dogs a pug and jack Russell.I would like to know if a bullmastiff be a good fit for my family?



The Bullmastiff is a loyal, gentle, sweet breed of dog that is great for families. Since your Bullmastiff will be a puppy when you get him/her; he/she will grow up with your other dogs and so he/she will be just fine and well socialized. Just make sure that you get your pup from a reputable breeder so that your pup is well bred and have a great temperament.


Socialization is big but Bullmastiffs love there family make sure the experience with smaller dogs is good. Because he will get big one day and wont be a push over.

Anonymous asked:
What is the average life span of a Bullmastiff and does it vary by gender?



The average life span of a Bullmastiff is 8 - 10 years; and no it does not vary by gender. Life span varies by pedigree, what food the dog eats throughout his/her life and the weight of the dog. Heavy dogs (over weight) will have more health problems then dogs whom are kept fit and trim.


That's why it very important to get your Bullmastiff from a breeder that has a titled pedigree and health screens there dogs. Titled pedigreed dogs will tend to be healthier because titled dogs or Championed dogs have usually been hip and health screened and there parents so on and so forth. Learn to look for OF numbers on the registration or PH for Penn Hip or look for CH. in the pedigree. Using holistic food also help with life expectancy.

You mention that the owner of a Bullmastiff needs to be 'firm but gentle'. Would you be so kind as to explain in simple terms what that means?

Develop a strong bond with the puppy, one where you are the absolute Alfa. Praise the good. Ignore the puppy when it is bad. No "punishment" other than a simple firm no when caught, then ignoring them for a short while. Then do a loving positive thing you would want them to do instead of the negative. Show it what you want. Praise, praise praise the positives. The puppy wants to know you are in charge and that it is making you happy. They love making you happy and live to please you. Let them know whenever they do, strongly. By ignoring them when they do wrong, they will want to do something different for your affection. I have trained many puppies this way. All have been increadable family members. The worst punishment I found was to say in a sad, disappointed but firm voice, " oh, puppies name, that makes Mommy very unhappy ". Then ignore them for a little while. Show them what you do want. And remember to Praise, Praise, Praise. Also using a crate is great. The puppy will grow to love it, and when you have to leave it, or are to busy to watch it, they can go in. NEVER for long. Just when needed. Good luck.

I am thinking about breeding my Bullmastiff male. I am having a hard time finding a breeder in my area any suggestions or how to match up with a breeder?

A reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeder will not be looking for outside lines unless they are going to another qualified breeder. Unless your dog is of impeccable breeding, is fully registered, has been fully vet checked for the major problems in the Bullmastiff breed such as; elbow and hip dysplasia (needs to be OFA or PEN-hip registered), and heart. And has competed in either confirmation shows and/or draft, protection, or obedience work; I would suggest to get your dog neutered.
