BULLMASTIFF - "THE NEW ONE"

         

OVERVIEW

Bullmastiffs are the one developed in mid of 19th century so calling them as one of the most modern breeds won't be wrong. They are like a family guardian. Trusting them is something you can do blindly on them. They don't fear anything that makes them as a good guardian. They are one of the silent watchdogs If you have a family where everyone is working then this is completely a breed fit for you because they don't bother a lot over being alone. These breeds can't digest heat and humid weather because that may result in heat exhaustion and heatstroke. They are not lapped dogs but still, they tend to behave like lap dogs. They are very confident and obedient.  They can be aggressive towards other animals so try being a bit aware of it.

FOOD HABITS :

They don't need to eat in bulk. You cannot make them eat for the whole day, you have to stick to a schedule and divide the meal between two times a day. They need 3 1/8 - 4 1/8 cups of high-quality dry food in a day.

But with this, I would even tell that the need for a dog's body varies from one dog to another because that depends completely on their physical needs.If your dog is sporty and an active one, then, of course, he will need more food than others. So it's important to watch out your dog and accordingly develop up their eating habits.

It's important to feed your pet with the right quantity and quality of food to help them grow in the best manner they may can.

You should never share human food with your pet because that may contain elements which can be toxic for your pet for example potatoes, chocolates, etc.

TRAINING :

Training them properly is very important and in that training, it is important to socialize them as early as possible because in case if they are not socialized soon then they may develop aggression towards other animals and especially of the same gender. They don't need frequent exercise and play time to be busy. Because in case they are bored then that may result in aggression.

CARING  :

They are low energy dogs. They require house training and crate training because that would help them not only being trained physically but mentally also. Nails should be trimmed once or twice at least. They need to brush at least 2 to 3 times a week.
