    Sorry, not really advice about your dogs but i just wanted to say that i did a bit of reading last night about this breed and was amazed at thier history, especially the bit about how Hitler wanted to have all these dogs eliminated because of thier loyalty to thier rich owners while he invaded France. The french uprising didnt do them any favours either. By the sounds of things they are lucky to not be extinct ! What a shame that would have been to loose such a good looking pooch
    Good luck with the breeding, hope it all goes smoothly.

    Welcome..From one giant owner to another.....ypu are getting some great help form every one. Have you ever thought of just getting to know another friendly giant breeder.

    I have spent many days/weeks with my mentor at her breeding kennel, mostly for socialising her puppies. But she had a Leonberger lady there to learn more about breeding and told me some Pyrenean Mountain dog people had also been.

    Good luck

    So French Mastiffs and Dogue de Bordeaux are the same breed???
    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.

    You will likely need a helper when and if they do the deed. With a large breed it is safest to have an adult attending to each dog. The male may need assistance in manouvering off her while still tied, so he doesn't slip and or fall. She will need to be held firmly during the tie to ensure she doesn't try and bolt or snap at him.

    The initial part of the tie, especially when the male is dismounting but still stuck inside her, can be startling and even painful for her. So if she is loose and he is unsupported all sorts of damge can occur to the delicate areas that are suddenly holding all the weight of the dogs..

    2 people will really be a must, have you got anyone that can assist you?

    If she's sitting down I doubt she is ready. That is normal behaviour for them when they are in season but not yet ready to mate.

    So she doesn't get sick of his attention it is best to keep them apart, and bring him to her on a lead twice a day. Let him sniff her but not chase or harass her, and watch her reaction. If she sits or pulls her back end away - away take him away.

    If she lifts her tail a little bit keep him near her, even if she is a little shy. Let her move away and back towards him so he is not overbearing or daunting to her.

    It needs to be on her terms. If he is too pushy she will get sick of him very quickly. If she really sours of his attention she wight not want to know him even at peak fertility so make sure she has her space and you keep him on a lead around her to minimise harassment.

    I wouldn't have them together all the time, especially at night. If he mounts her while you are sleep and something goes wrong you could end up with 2 injured dogs.

    Separating and bringing together at specific times can also get them both more interested.
