Tips And Advice For Buying or Getting A Mastiff Dog

Jun 27, 2008
I love my mastiff! Seriously, this dog has brought so much joy into my life. If you are looking to purchase a mastiff puppy of your own, then enjoy the journey and soon, you too, will be adding a lovable pet to your home.

Finding mastiff puppies for sale sounds like a daunting task, taking into account the size and rarity of the breed. In reality, finding mastiff puppies for sale is quite easy. As long as you know the right places to look and what exactly you are looking for, you are sure to stumble across something you like!

This first thing to consider is if you really want a puppy and not an adult dog. There are positives and negatives either way; it is mostly just a matter of opinion.

The main advantage to raising a mastiff puppy is that you could guide its growth, training, and overall well being. You can ensure it is properly fed and nurtured. In addition, you can be sure that all the right medications age given from birth, including heartworm medicine.

On the other hand, there is no assurance as to what your mastiff will look like as he grows and his temperament may change. These are both factors that (for the most part) you can not control. An adult mastiff usually comes housebroken and ready to go, sporting the look it will probably have the rest of its life.

Older Mastiffs typically adapt better to existing pets than a puppy would. At the same time, you have no idea how it has been raised and it can be hard to make sure all proper medications and nutrition was provided.

If you decide a puppy is the way to go, you will soon be looking for mastiff puppies for sale. Mastiff puppies for sale can be found through reputable mastiff breeders online, at special mastiff kennels or in the newspaper, but rarely so.

It is absolutely crucial that you are willing to wait before buying a mastiff puppy.

If you want to buy a mastiff puppy, you must remember that there are typically between 8-12 weeks needed with the mother dog before it can leave "the nest". This time provides a certain psychological advantage to both the mother and puppy which is crucial to proper development.

The best of mastiff breeders ensure that all their puppies receive the necessary immunizations and chow for a long and healthy life. You shouldn't have to worry too much. It is one of the reasons that you might consider purchasing your new puppy from a reputable breeder.

During the time you are waiting for your little fuzz ball to come home, it is important that you "mastiff-proof" your home. Like a child, a puppy is extremely curious and adventurous. If things are not off the floor and put away, your pup will find it and by the time you do it will be too late.

Mastiff puppies are a great addition to any home. Along with their overwhelming size, they have an overwhelming heart and are sure to bring lots of love and fun to your home and your family!
