Sit, stay, learn! Our blog about all things dog.
Bullmastiffs are cute, brave, affectionate, and loyal. Thanks to their large personalities and great family qualities, these gentle giants rank as the 44th most popular dog breed according to the AKC. The Bullmastiff breed originated in England around 1860 to protect gamekeepers against poachers. The original foundations for the breed are 60% Mastiff and 40% bulldog; the result is a dog that is 100% large and unique.
Low Maintenance Dog Breed
Every dog owner can attest to the fact that no dog is truly ‘low maintenance.’ All dogs require a lot of time, resources, and energy. However, some dogs are a lot more work than others. In comparison to many other breeds, bullmastiffs are considered relatively low-key.
How Much Exercise Does A Bullmastiff Need?
Just like any dog, bullmastiffs require regular walks and exercise but are not considered hyper or super energetic dogs. Bullmastiffs are fairly calm, but despite their laidback demeanor excel at a wide variety of canine sports, such as agility.
Bullmastiff puppies need plenty of socialization in order to grow up into friendly dogs. Without proper exposure, bullmastiffs are prone to becoming territorial and aggressive towards people and animals they do not know.
Grooming Bullmastiff Dogs
The bullmastiffs’ short, dense coat provides solid protection against all types of weather. It’s also easy to keep clean and produces little shedding. A quick brush every day or every other day should keep your dog looking and feeling great.
As for overall health, this breed tends to be pretty healthy as long as they are given proper nutrition and overall care. Bullmastiffs are short-nosed dogs, which puts them at risk for brachycephalic syndrome. In order to help prevent respiratory distress, keep this breed calm and cool and never leave them outside when it is very hot. Maintaining a healthy body weight is key, as overweight dogs are more prone to respiratory issues. Use a harness instead of a collar to avoid putting unnecessary pressure on the trachea.
Bullmastiff Dry Nose
All dogs are susceptible to developing a dry, crusty or raw nose for a number of reasons, but bullmastiffs are at a heightened risk for developing this common canine issue.
Brachycephalic dogs are already at a disposition when it comes to breathing because of their shortened snoot and airway. A bullmastiff with a dry nose is at an even greater disadvantage when it comes to using their sense of smell.
Dogs rely on a moist, healthy nose in order to take in surrounding scents, analyze their environment and simply live life. A dry nose is not only prohibitive but it can also be painful.
All-natural Snout Soother is made to soothe, heal and protect your dog’s nose so that they can rely on their super-sonic sense of smell as intended.
Bullmastiff Inflamed Skin Folds
Inflamed, irritated or infected skin folds are another common issue that impacts the adorable wrinkles on the bullmastiffs’ face. The delicate skin between these folds must be regularly cleaned and checked for any signs of infection.
Odd or unpleasant odors, flaky, dry, pink or inflamed skin are all signs your dog has some sort of infection. It’s very easy for dirt, debris and sweat to get trapped in these dark crevices, providing the perfect climate for bacteria and yeast to thrive.
All-natural Wrinkle Balm provides the perfect solution to treating a wide range of skin disorders such as skin fold dermatitis, yeast and bacterial infections, as well as minor redness and chafing.
