Mastiffs can easily outway many humans, so it's no secret why someone might be intimidated by one of these dogs. Beyond the sheer size though, the Mastiff has a very distinctive looking face and body. As far as the face and head, both are huge. They're wide and the skin is full of wrinkles. The body is quite muscular and well equipped to handle any intruder that may break into a house or threaten the family the dog has bonded with. Needless to say, Mastiffs make excellent guard dogs and protectors. They are sweet and gentle though, but you've got to train these dogs early on in puppyhood. If you don't, they may develop bad habits that are difficult to break. If you're looking into this breed of dog, be sure you've got experience and lots of room in which it can roam and play. This dog is no joke.

Continue reading to learn more about Mastiffs, including the American, Brazilian, Bullmastiff, English, French, Tibetan, Zorba Monster, American Bandogge, Imperial, Neapolitan, and the Spanish Mastiff.

Popularity: Very popular.

Trainability: When it comes to dogs of this weight and size, early training and socialization is an absolute must. The greatest challenge your face while attempting to train your Mastiff is boredom. Your dog may wander away and fall asleep. It's best to use several shorter sessions per day rather than one long one. With positive reinforcement and a fun atmosphere, you can certainly train this breed. When training, use eye contact and body language. Mastiffs are sensitive dogs and you must be sure not to offend them. A positive attitude and respect goes a long way with this breed.

Size/Weight: Large sized dogs, weighing in at an average of 120-230 pounds.

Origin Location/Date: The descendants of today's Mastiff go back thousands of years to Asia. The more modern Mastiff we see today was first bred in England in the early to mid 1800s. The breed went through some ups and downs and then began its ascent to popularity in both Europe and the United States. In 1885, the American Kennel Club recognized the Mastiff as a breed.

Energy Level: While exercise is critical for any dog's health and mental well being, it's important to keep it easy with the Mastiff. This is a large dog and an overzealous exercise regimen can do substantial damage to its bones and frame. It's best to walk this dog a few times daily and then engage in some play in the back yard or the park. This isn't an overly active dog.

Temperament: If socialized properly, the Mastiff is a great family dog. Small children have been known to tease the Mastiff and the dog just takes it. It's a patient and gentle breed, but it is sensitive to harsh tone of voice and body language. Treat this dog right and he'll treat you right.

Necessary Space: Mastiffs can be quite huge, so they're not recommended for apartment living. They need room to roam around, so a larger house with a fenced in back yard would be perfect.

Talents: The Mastiff is a very loyal and devoted breed of dog and it will bond with its master and grieve if sold, adopted or given away to a shelter. Please be sure you want this dog for its entire life or you may hurt him mentally. Also, the Mastiff is an instinctive guardian who will protect those he loves.

Life Expectancy: 6-10 years.

Group: Working Group.

A few terms and phrases to describe the typical Mastiff puppy and dog: easy going, laid back, gentle, friendly, calm, good with children, good with other pets, guardian dog, companionable, very large, gentle giant, and a dog with average energy.
