About the Breed


Nutrition


Bull Mastiff pups do well on a diet meant for 'large breed' to ensure healthy, steady, and optimum growth. As they grow into adults, it is best to adjust their diet in accordance with size and activity level. Since Bull Mastiffs suffer from bloat, exercise is dangerous immediately before or after meals. Remember, the leaner your BullMastiff, the better for their health - and this is especially true for puppies. The slower and steadier they grow, the less taxing it is on their systems.


Grooming


During shedding seasons, there can be excess fur loss. A balanced, nutritious, and wholesome diet along with skin and coat supplements can help with this. Weekly coat care in terms of brushing, de-shedding, and bathing must be monitored regularly. This, along with nail trims, ear cleans, and teeth brushes, can help to keep your Bullmastiff in good health. 


Exercise


Bullmastiffs enjoy exercise but beware of high impact exercises like running, which could put extra strain on their joints. Brisk walks, playing with toys, drafting, treasure hunts, swimming etc., are low impact exercises that must be encouraged. If you choose to have your Bullmastiff spend most of his time outdoors, ensure you have a fenced-in yard to avoid people and animals entering your Bullmastiff territory. 


Training

Although they are easy to train because of their intelligence, Bull Mastiffs can be stubborn at times. For this, consistent, patient, and positive reinforcement training and early socialisation is key to a well-behaved Bull Mastiff.

Health


Hypothyroidism, bloat, hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, obesity, cancer, eye problems, gingivitis, respiratory problems, and heart disease are common health complications in Bull Mastiffs. Routine checkups, good quality diet, and regular exercise are crucial to ensuring a healthy, long life for your Bull Mastiff.

Temperament


Bull Mastiffs can go from being lovable lap dogs to territorial guard dogs. The key to raising this breed is finding a middle ground - not too sensitive, not too aggressive. With proper training and early socialisation, Bull Mastiffs are great family companions who thrive on affection and loyalty.   

Conclusion


Bull Mastiffs, as beautiful as they are, they aren't for everybody. With several factors to consider before bringing this breed home, Bull Mastiffs are all about finding the right family.
