Temperament of the Dogue de Bordeux

Big Dog | September 9th, 2010

Dogue de Bordeaux dogs are very loyal and affectionate companions if handled properly. First of all, these dogs have be trained and socialized from a very early age to avoid being aggressive against strangers. Being suspicious make them a perfect watchdog – but on the other hand you have to pay attention not to get aggressive.

The other key for being able to live together happily with a French Mastiff is to keep in my mind its natural instincts. These dogs always live in a pack – a pack, which can have only one leader. This leader has to be you. A pack leader is respected and beloved, and this can not be achieved by force. You have to be self-consistent and strict. But once you achieve the respect of the dog and it accepts you as a pack leader, your French Mastiff will be extremely loyal and protective.

How To Give your Dog a Checkup

Can two male Dogue de Bordeaux-s live together?

Big Dog | July 22nd, 2010

It isn’t the best idea, but it can work out. Having two male dogs is always a bit hard, because both try to take over the dominance.
The only way possible for them to live together in peace is if they live together from early puppyhood, and they are well-socialized even from this age, and the most important thing is that one of them has to be the leader of the pack, and the other one has to accept it. There can’t be two leaders at the same time and if the roles are not clear, they’ll be fighting and competing all the time. This is why it is easier to have one male and female –  in this situation the female lets the male lead.
