bullmastiff breeders

These are Bullmastiff breeder in Ontario. I don't know them but please do your research very carefully. Check for health and hip testing and not too many litters with the same bitch or stud dog. Also please research the breed before you buy one and also consider a rescue Bully. These are great dogs but do grow to a significant size not as big as an English or Neapolitan, but they are still large. This is so that we don't find your dog up for adpotion because "he just got so big" or "he is too strong for our children". If you have any questions you can message me.

Also what you have to realize is that you will be put on a waiting list....This means that you are on a list before the breeding takes place.Especially with the majority of these breeders.A few I have personaly had the pleasure seeing at the shows.All these breeders are amazing breeders.And have amazing dogs.

Also,you will be put on a s/n contract.And you will go through a lot of red tape...So be prepared.


Also,have you tried a rescue?There are Bullmastiff rescues.

How Long typically is a waiting list? And how much would a breeder charge for a Pup? (obviously prices differ)

Are you interested in a rescue? Have you owned a Mastiff before? I know of a couple in rescue. Where are you located?

I think the length of the waiting list depends on how many times the breeder breeds, and how many pups are there. I am not sure... However, please make sure that you do the research about the breed AS WELL as the breeder, this will save a lot of heart and head ache in the future. I cannot stress this enough. I wanted a Jack Russell so bad... But upon further investigation I came to the conclusion that the breed was not right for me, no matter how much I adore it. The activity level, the prey drive... these were just a couple of things.

Some breeds are not for everyone and some are disastrous in first-time puppy owners.. (not saying you are one) but this is a large breed, and there are many possible issues that could arise, health and behaviour...

Good luck in your search and please keep us posted on your progress! And we wanna see the pics when you get a new addition to the family!

Make sure you check those breeders out very thoroughly. One was expelled from the owners club of another breed they have for their breeding practices. PM me if you want details.

What are somethings I should know about Mastiff as I have never owned one before? I would appreciate any advice on owning or looking for one. My only other experience has been a Golden Lab as the family pet when I was in high school! I am looking at getting a Bull mastiff

Okay Mastiffs drool and I do not mean a little I mean a ton. Slingers (drool) get flung on walls ceilings your clean clothes, hair and everywhere imaginable. They shed a lot big dogs lots of hair, not sure about Bulls but English do and Neos don't. The vet bills can be double I realize Bulls are not as big but people do seem to think they are huge. For example Bud's ear infections cost meds 138.00 exam 60.00 the meds for example for a lab would be 60.00 so everything is more expensive. You will need to research a good vet not all of them are giant breed saavy for instance a mastiff can not be sedated with regular anastetic (sp) they require a different one as the regular one can kill them. They can have major joint and hip issues. They cost double to feed and I really mean good quality food to help avoid health issues. If you are planning on buying a puppy you need to know any reputable breeder will not have a puppy to sell you will need to be put on a waiting list. You will want to see both parents and the home and kennels where they are kept. All the health testing that they require you want to see the actual heath tests, not online. You will need to find out what the required health tests are I know eyes heart hips and there are probably more. If a breeder advertises in the newspaper or craigslist or kijjii run far and fast these are not breeders. I am not sure how much Bullmastiffs cost as pups but I can tell you a Neo or English will cost you anywhere from 2000 to 3500 depending on if it is show quality or pet. Please do your research read a lot these dogs are not for everyone you need to be a strong leader they can be very stubborn. They are loyal beyond belief and if you choose one and can deal with a life of never being really clean again (you will always have dog hair or drool on your clothes). Then you have found the most loving dog they also are a bit like velcro they love to be with there families. They can have a high prey drive also. They are not the dog for really active people Bulls are a little more active but they are not going to be your jogging partner, this is not good for there hips and joints short runs are fine but no long runs. There is a lot to learn about raising a giant breed from a pup different food requirements, the type of play no jumping off things etc. I suggest a lot of research which I have said before but really I do mean it they are not for everyone. I am personally addicted to them. I hope this helps. If you want to know more about rescue pm me

All very good sound advice from Mastifflover. Just to put things into perspective, when I de-worm my dogs it costs approx. $5.00 to buy the de-wormer from my vet for my Miniature Pinschers, as apposed to $50.00 to buy it for my Bullmastiff. BIG difference for the same treatment. (done by weight)

Also, be aware that Bullmastiffs are a brachycephalic breed, meaning they have the more pushed in nose bridge. Care must be taken when exercising these dogs, as they can have breathing issues and intolerance to heat. After about 20 degrees celcius, I decline to take my bully for walks with my other dogs, as it is just too hard on him. It takes alot of effort with all that body mass and they do better exercising moderately in cooler temps.

You must socialize this breed early on, spaying and neutering is important as this is a STRONG breed, you have no idea how strong! Actually it is not a breed to consider if you are new to dogs IMO, a Bullmastiff without the proper training and socialization can be an extreme challenge, and dangerous in the wrong hands.

My Bullmastiff "Ruben" is the sweetest, most loving dog you could ever meet. I trust him with most other dogs, and especially people. On the other side of the coin, a littermate of his attacked and killed a poodle, and she was humanely euthanized by my vet. She is shocked that such an aggressive animal came out of the same litter as my dog, seeing how Ruben is.

No matter how well bred, socialized, and trained a Bullmastiff can be...you always have to remember that this is a very powerful breed that will not usually back down from a fight with another dog. As trustworthy as mine is, I have seen that if another dog provokes aggression with him, he will not back off...and this breed will finish a fight if there is one.

They tend to be more "people protectors" rather than property protectors (in my experience) My Bully will let anyone in my house or on my property, but I am sure he would take the head off of anyone that had bad intentions on me.

Quite the collection of animals at your place Purpledomino. Sounds like a little slice of heaven.
We are not trying to be pessimistic but most people will not tell you the bad points about a breed but at least you have the facts. We are not trying to sell you a dog we just want your choice to be informed. One more little fact giant breeds should not be spayed or neutered till they are about 18 months old, it has a lot to do with there growth. But after that spay or neuter.
Now with that said Mastiffs are the best dogs ever. The most loyal dog you will ever know.
