Dogue De Bordeaux


Dogue De Bordeaux, also known as the French Mastiff, is not the breed for an average home. They're fearless and can be aggressive occasionally. They're believed to have split personalities. Sometimes they're gentle and calm but can also become dominant and protective at other times.


Dogue De Bordeaux needs a lot of exercise and does better with an active owner. It's better to have a large yard for them as well as taking them for long walks. Just remember that they have a short muzzle that can make them tire out quickly so a good water supply should always be on hand.


Dogue De Bordeaux dogs are average shedders and need very little maintenance. If you need to remove excess hair, a firm bristle brush works well. You can also choose to wipe them down with a damp cloth or dry towel.


Dogue De Bordeaux dogs are used often as guard or watch dogs. They must be well socialized at a very young age to prevent any future aggression problems. This is not a good dog for inexperienced owners.


The Dogue De Bordeaux breed has a soft and short coat. They also have a unique mask that's darker in relation to the rest of their faces. They require practically no maintenance of their coat so they're very easy to take care of.


Dogue De Bordeaux can be very intimidating but can also be gentle and calm if they have the right socialization and home environment. A male should never be in the same home with another male of his breed. They're powerful and do well with children as long as they're not left alone with them.


While Dogue De Bordeaux is of average intelligence, they're also very obedient, loyal and eager to please. They require a dominant trainer because they're a large, fearless and courageous breed. They do well in working, obedience and as watch dogs.
