    Thanks for the replies and advice guys...It could very well be a case of cabin fever and since i'm not working the next few days i plan on running him ragged.
    I spoke to my trainer tonight...she's seen some of his stunts he pulls and reckons not to worry to much as it's the teenager thing too.

    On a birght note he did well tonight and graduated his 1st basic lessons so we will be stepping up a gear next week.....so we have plenty of homework to do aswell which may help keep him in line.

    As for the peeing inside, well if he dosnt go to the toilet at our usual time he's staying out there for the rest of the night. We'll see how that goes.
    I think he may be testing me for sure....i can be a stubborn prick when i want to so he's in for a fight on that front...just gotta remember to keep my cool. Even got pulled up tonight by the trainer for been a little bit grumpy with him in my voice tone but once i started using my 'silly' voice he came good.

    I'm going to work hard on this......fingers crossed all goes well and thanks for the tips and advice.

    Congratulations on passing training lessons, that's fantastic ... he's grown so much, going to be a beautiful big boy... amazing how fast the big dogs grow in their first year! He's probably thinking he's a big boy now so can do what he likes

    At about 7-9 months I thought I had swapped dogs........Katy went through a real silly period

    But it is all about the gorgeous face, who cannot love that gorgeous mug.

    Last night i heard him get up so i jumped out of bed and took him outside. He had his usual 5 minute drink, well it feels like 5 minutes at that time of night...more like 30 seconds..lol. He then tried to walk straight back inside but one determined owner was blocking him . 3 times i pushed him out on the grass and stood there doing my "go wee's mate" in my best silly voice before he got the idea and did a small one. He had about 5 seconds left before he was sleeping out there, the lucky bugger...feels like we are back at square one with the toilet training, oh well.

    So then this morning he jumps on the bed and gives me big kisses and cuddles.......it is hard to be cranky his big boof head.

    So far so good..it's going to be a interesting doggy today..i'm watching him like a hawk...and we are spending the entire day together doing fun things with a lot of training homework aswell.

    Thanks..it is only the first lot of lessons but it's been great. They put Mojo and me at the front of the class demo so we had everyone watching us....bit nervous but he nailed it even though the dogs behind us did thier best to distract him. When we got called up to get our certificate and presents the teacher called him the "good looking guy of the class" and got a big cheer and clap from others not even in our class !! . The amount of people who bailed us up at the end to pat him and ask all about Bullmastiffs was really neat. They all loved his big cute head. Made me feel proud of him.
    He's not the fastest or smartest cookie in the jar but he gets there eventually so we are going to have a go at the 2nd more advanced course as he seems to enjoy it and so do i.

    Congrats on passing the first lessons!

    Don't underestimate his grey matter... most of the mastiff's I've met have been really switched on, even if they do seem to be big hulking loafs that just lumber around... have you thought about getting him a pack saddle to wear whilst out walking? That way he has to think, and work, simultaneoulsy, and it's a real challenge for them. He can carry your water, his water, poop baggies, anything really, but he's working for his exercise reward... and having to carry something around will also exercise his brain as he figures out what he has to do!

    Thats a good suggestion Pinkest...i've never considered it. I might just look into somthing like that....i'm sure the extra weight wouldnt bother him.

    He is a smart bugger when it suits him.....he can open sliding doors by himself to get in....but if i tell him to get out he looks at me like "well you have to open the door for me to do that !". And i know dam well he can get in the front of a car by himself but he sits there and waits for me to lift him in. I'm sure he thinks he has me wrapped around his little (big) paw....cheeky bugger.
