Thread: Dogue De Bordeaux

  1. #1

    Default Dogue De Bordeaux

    Another breed that I would consider purchasing.

    Anyone here own one or have a friend that does?

    Would be interested to hear some stories about them and their traits!

    I have a 4 year old boy, Griffen.

    They are an amazing breed. Not for everyone, they can be very stubben and due to their size need training early (although all dogs should get this anyway)
    You also have to be prepared for drool you usually notice a nice slobber mark about crotch hight just before you go out. And it will go up the walls when they shake their head.
    I'll try to answer any questions you have.

    This is my baby boy

    He is beautiful

    I will be training whatever breed I get an early age.

    I'm concerned though because I work 9 - 5 mon - fri

    I understand a lot of breeds don't like being left alone for long periods.

    Including this one.

    I got Griffen to keep my other dog company during the day as both myself and my partner work full time.
    I wouldn't recommend having a ddb on it own but with another (generally smaller) dog they do well.

    My two usually spend the day sleeping together untill I get home.

    This may be problem in the beggining when you're (and if you are) getting a puppy. Puppies are a handfull and leaving them alone 9-5 when they're young is not an option. They need to be toilet trained, well socialised and taught a lot of stuff so you don't end up with any major issues later (and they grow up fast!). It is absolutelly necessary that you take some time off work or have someone with puppy all the time during the first 3-4 weeks after puppy arrives to your home. Otherwise you may end up with ongoing problems of wrecking a household items, peeing everywhere and all (to a dog normal) nervewrecking stuff.
    Respect and you shall be respected. Animal is always right.

    Did anyone see the DDB on Bondi Vet and they decided to refer to them as the simple term "French Mastiff"?
    I thought it was kinda funny.


    Sorry, that was off topic

    Well I guess it was a good segment in that showing why you should buy from a registered breeder.
