    Smile Slobber guts

    Hey guys.

    Having a laugh at jadielle and Newfies slobbering dogs got me thinking about Mojo.
    Everyone told me he would be a bad slobberer as Bullmastiffs are renowned for it but so far he hardly does it at all. He gets a little after drinking but it's more water than saliva. His dad was a shocker and covered my kids when he shook his head at the breeders house so i assumed he would be just as bad but so far so good.

    He's 4 and a half months old and his top lips are starting to thicken up and droop below the bottom lip for that classic Mastiff look so i'm wondering if this is going to increase the slobber as he gets older.
    If your dogs a slobber guts did they do it as a young dog or did they get worse with age ? Is it just after eating or drinking or are they just as bad as the 'Turner and Hooch' dog who was a slobbering machine ?
    Not that dog slobber bothers me as i knew about it when i chose the breed but i'm just curious as this is my first dog who has the smushy face and drooling potential.
    Cheers.

    My Gordon doesn't slobber unless like yours she's just eaten and it's gone a few minutes after finishing a meal, never has drool, though some I have seen do which is too loose flews which is incorrect in a Gordon. Don't know about the mastiffs.

    She is six years old and it hasn't changed at all. Like your dog if she's had a drink and rests her head on you you do get wet but it's mostly water as she has long ears that go it the water bucket too and almost needs a snorkel when she drinks as the entire muzzle goes in.

    I'll have to take a wander down to the Mastiffs at the next show and check it out but most the ones I've come across have a little bit of slobber after exercise, eating etc but not drool.

    When we went to a Bullmastiff breeders place he told us that all these dogs are different.
    But he also said that they will slobber when it comes to food.
    He had 2 that we could actually pat and they were not slobberers at all.
    Though while there we did notice some when they ate.
    So I think as they said it is down to each dog.

    Harley's was an acquired ability! lol Bella is only slobbery after drinking, but she doesn't have the same big jowls as Harley does.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    I am a bit 'eeew' about slobber and maybe that automatically makes me gravitate towards dog types with nice taut muzzles. Of course if I did end up with a slobberer, I'd get over it pretty quickly. And just make sure I always had something handy to wipe off the slobber with before I got white stripes all over my pants.

    I know it is hard to believe , but Kay did not slobber until she was about 7-8 month So don't count your chickens yet

    Katy mostly drools when she is hot or wants food, her being the Demo dog in Luring, that can be quite a lot

    Lukey only when he is hot or stressed and Annabelle hardly ever only when really hot/stressed.

    They hardly ever drool when relaxed at home and I find the drool a very small payment for all the other positives my chosen Breed has

    I solved the problem.....Katy carries her own towel

    Thanks for the replies. I thought i might be jumping the gun with Mojo not slobering yet, i guess we will wait and see.
    If he does end up a bad slobberer, well that will help keep the inlaws away even more

    My Bully hardly ever slobbered more when looking at food but we were warned to carry a towel, they used egg whites to make the slobber in the Turner and Houch

    My dogs a GSP so isnt meant to slobber but because of her overbite she drools a bit after drinking, about 25% of whatever she's drunk just leaks out!

    My sisters rottie is about 12 months and he drools soooooo much, whenever he's over all the dogs are covered in it. Then again her old rottie hardly drooled at all, so I'm agreeing with those who've said it differs from dog to dog.

    I've been trying to teach my dog to do that but no luck at all.
