Originally valued for its abilities as a fierce guard and fighting dog, today’s Mastiff is a gentle giant. A born guard dog, brave and loyal. It is calm, steady and docile. It tends to keep close to home and is disinclined to roam. “As a lion is to a cat, so is a mastiff compared to a dog.

Temperamento

It is a self-confident, watchful, and patient dog. It is gentle-natured towards its family. It is in its nature to defend its territory and family. It rarely barks, it is calm and docile. This breed needs lots of companionship, it loves to please.

This dog makes an excellent companion to children (not recommend for toddlers though, because of its great size). It is very large and heavy. The Mastiff is very intelligent, responds well to gentle, patient training. It is very possessive of home, family and car; protection training is unnecessary for this naturally protective breed. The dog generally holds intruders at bay rather than attacking. Extra effort should be given to socialize a Mastiff puppy; it may be combative with other dogs if not very well socialized.
