The Bullmastiff was developed in Britain by crossing the Mastiff and the Bulldog. In those days the Bulldog was active and agile, so the combination gave us a large and very strong dog, which was used for tracking. They were also widely used by gamekeepers on large estates to deter poachers.
These dogs are very protective of their family and other household pets. They have to be socialised from an early age. The Bullmastiff will only accept strangers if they are introduced to them by someone they trust. Intruders will be quickly halted in their tracks. It is not really a breed for the novice owner, due to its strength, stubborn and over protective nature.

Grooming- Relatively easy, a grooming mitt is all that is required to remove any dead and loose hair.

Exercise- This dog should not have long walks or be allowed a lot of free exercise until it is at least 12 months old. It has to be remembered that even when this dog is 6 months old, and is relatively large, it is still a puppy. Too much exercise too young can lead to bone and joint related health problems in later life. They have an average demand for exercise, only requiring a few walks per day. They do enjoy exercise and games with the family.

Health- This breed is fairly hardy but some can suffer from bloat, hip dysplasia and eye problems.
