Like all breeds there may be some health issues, like hip and elbow dysplasia and cardiac disease. Some dogs may be faced with these health challenges in their lives, but the majority of Bullmastiffs are healthy dogs.
Working with a responsible breeder, those wishing to own a Bullmastiff can gain the education they need to know about specific health concerns within the breed. Good breeders utilize genetic testing of their breeding stock to reduce the likelihood of disease in their puppies.
Around the house he’s calm and polite, and he’s happiest when he is wherever you are. Because of his strength, though, it’s important to make sure he knows you’re the boss. Otherwise he’ll be taking you for a walk. You’ll want to give him lots of the right things to chew on (this does not include Grandpa’s loafer). But keep in mind that despite their tough-guy looks, Bullmastiffs are sensitive, so harsh training methods will backfire. Easy does it with this loveable big guy!
