Anonymous asked:
I have a male Dogue De Bordeaux and am considering getting another Dogue De Bordeaux. Is this a good idea? Also, would it be best we get a female?



This breed tends to have same-gender aggression, so by getting a female you have a less likely chance for your male dog to have aggression. But you know your dog, you know if he would like another dog in the home or if he is a one-dog dog.


If your Bordeaux is dog friendly another Bordeaux would be great. I would put a female male combo.


Honestly it shouldn't matter which sex if your current dog is an established adult. Bringing a puppy in it will naturally acquiesce to the older adult...problems can occur when a teenager (8 months -18 months) or adult is introduced incorrectly to a new household.

Anonymous asked:
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?



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.


We have had one for 10 years with no problem in Phoenix AZ however, we don't leave her outside in the heat.


In CA you would need to keep your Bordeaux inside and make sure they have some kind of pool for them outside


Dogue de Bordeaux and molosser breeds in general don't do well in a hot climate...However, if provided with adequate water and shade and not left outdoors for extended periods of time or exercised excessively there shouldn't be any issues

Anonymous asked:
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

Anonymous asked:
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.
