The English Mastiff is considered to be the predecessor of all the Mastiffs that we know of today. This ancient breed has made its way through several centuries of domestication. Bred initially to be a ferocious war and fighting dog, the modern English Mastiff is nothing like his ancestors. Today, the breed is known for his extraordinary temperament and his ability to be a great work dog and also a wonderful companion. These dogs are counted among the most massive canines in the world. But, their gentle demeanor has earned them the title of “Gentle Giants”. Wouldn’t you love to bring one home? Well, it takes a little understanding of the needs of this breed and you are good to go!
Having a giant dog like the English Mastiff at home is no easy task. For anybody who has even owned a dog before understanding the right way to care for a dog like the English Mastiff seems like a challenge. Most Mastiff owners would agree that the docile nature of the breed reduces the burden to a large extent. So if you are bringing home a English Mastiff you must worry mostly about giving the dog proper care to ensure that he has a long, comfortable and healthy life.
With the right care, this dog will be the most incredible addition to your family. This book is a complete pet owner’s guide that covers all the concerns that a new Mastiff parent may have. This manual contains all the information you need, from birth to the Rainbow Bridge, including transitioning through house breaking, care, feeding, training and end of life, so that you can make a well-informed decision about whether or not the English Mastiff is the breed for you.
If you already have an English Mastiff, this book will teach you everything you need to know to make your dog a happy dog and to make you a happy dog owner.

Terrible book with very little real information about English Mastiffs. It is as if they wrote a book about another breed of mastiff and stuck English in front of it. Cropping the ears of an English Mastiff? I verified with people with actual breeding and showing experience, this does not happen. A first time English Mastiff owner buying this poorly written book is getting some horrible misinformation.
Generic dog book. Info written with word "Mastiff" in place of dog! Can find more info specific to Mastiff breed on the Internet. Save your money, we donated ours to the waiting area of our vet office.
This book is unfortunate in that it's filled with typos and grammatical errors start to finish. It otherwise has very practical very useful easy to read information that everybody needs to know about their mastiff.
