Looking for that Perfect Puppy?

What type of dog will be a good match for your family (temperament, size, grooming requirements, activity level, cost, trainability, the drool factor, etc)? Consider all the pro's and cons about the breed.

A new puppy will take up a lot of your time. Are you able to dedicate time for training classes as well as informal training at home, play time, grooming, vet visits & walks? Are you prepared for the expense of a puppy? Consider the cost of quality food and routine veterinary care as well as supplies such as collars, bowls, crate & toys. Non-routine veterinary care for an ill Mastiff can be exceptionally high. As an example, a torn anterior cruciate ligament can cost $1000 and up to repair. Heartworm medication for a 160 lb dog can cost $150.00 per year alone. Do you have a vehicle to transport a huge dog in safely?

The number of backyard breeders we are seeing in Canada has exploded in the past few years. With this increase, rescue has suddenly gotten quite busy. CMC members are also taking an alarming number of calls from owners having temperament and/or health issues with their Mastiffs. Virtually all of these dogs come from backyard breeders.

Therefore, it is imperative that you really do your research when looking for a breeder. Not only to help ensure you get a quality puppy, but to help protect the breed as a whole.
