Bullmastiff puppy: how to choose and what to consider when choosing | Wikipet.ru
Before choosing a bullmastiff puppy, once again think about whether you really need a dog, especially as large and powerful as a bullmastiff. Assess the upcoming costs of feed, veterinary procedures, ammunition, toys, etc.
If the decision is firm and cannot be appealed, visit the exhibition, talk with breeders and other owners of bullmastiffs in order to get an objective picture of the breed and avoid future disappointments. Read books, study information on the Internet, chat on forums and compare information from different sources.
Bullmastiff puppy is best taken in a trusted kennel with a good reputation. Look at the adult dogs that were once bought in this kennel - this will give you an idea of what will grow out of a bullmastiff puppy that you liked.
Decide who you want to get: a dog or a bitch? The bullmastiff male is more powerful, independent, later matures and can very nervously react to the presence of nearby flowing bitches. Bullmastiff bitch is more elegant, loyal and human-oriented, easier to learn. But you have to come to terms with the fact that 2 times a year the female will have estrus, or sterilize her.
Decide what you expect from the dog, and choose a bullmastiff puppy in accordance with these requests. Do you dream of winning the show rings, raising a defender or do you need a companion for leisurely walks? Obtaining "all in one bottle" is unlikely to succeed, so it is important to prioritize.Talk to the breeder - he will help you choose a bullmastiff puppy that is right for you and your family.
It is better to take a puppy bullmastiff aged 60 days or older. But if you are planning an exhibition, it is advisable to wait until the puppy is 8 - 9 months old - at this age it is clear whether he has defects that could prevent him from becoming a champion.
