Dogue De Bordeaux

If you are wondering what is the right dog for you, this is the place to be. In this introductory forum we talk about topics such as breed vs. mix, size, age, grooming, breeders, shelters, rescues as well as requirements for exercise, space and care. No question is too silly here. This particular forum is for getting and giving helpful, nice advice. It is definitely not a forum for criticizing someone else's opinion, knowledge or advice. This forum is all about tail wagging and learning.

Can anyone tell me about them? I'm more curious than anything, due to my love for Mastiff's and having finally met some in person.

I took my bunny in to have his teeth trimmed(he has malocclusion), and there was an older one and a six month old pup. Both beautiful, laid-back dogs. They were happy to say hello, were happy to laze around, and even more happy to allow people in and out of the pet shop.

They were just sooo sweet and gorgeous. And of course, loving Mastiff's, I was swooning.

Is that calm, laid-back temperament typical of the breed?

Anything anyone can tell me would be great. smile

Only seen them at dog shows...but I too Love the big lug types cloud 9

My hubby would hate the drool laugh out loud

Guardian breeds tend to be velcro to their peeps and can be very territorial at their home with strangers. Sounds like the ones you met have been well socialized and probably see their role at the shop as greeter/guard.

Nothing quite like a guardian breed when it comes to quiet, laid-back, but serious protection. I love their velcro-ness...which is by no means needy. You must be physically strong to train these beautiful beasts...or you'll end up flying like a flag as you hold onto the leash behind a galloping tank. laugh out loud

They're nice dogs but need really well trained and socialised if for no other reason than it's going to be really hard to control an adult that's out of control. Hopefully there's not the issue in the US that there is here they've gone from relative obscurity to in the top 20 registrations very quickly and their temperment is suffering frown.

One of my favourite breeds I've met a few nice ones. The well bred ones tend to be pretty laid back and calm but I pity anyone who tried to hurt their humans.

Don't really have anything to add about them but I sure love them too cloud 9

A guy always brings his Dogue to Petsmart on weekends and he LOVES the attention he gets from EVERYONE. He's obviously very well socialized with people and kids, and is like a giant laid-back, drooling teddy bear when he's in the store.

They had plenty of people fussing over them all day even lots of kids and from what I could see they were pretty unfazed by the whole thing. Didn't get much a chance for a chat with them though but when I met one in the park I ended up soaked laugh out loud the drool is the one thing that would put me off them.

Drool definitely doesn't put me off - I used to work in a doggy daycare that had Mastiffs and Saints, so... laugh out loud
