Need to know Mastiff

Mastiffs make excellent guard dogs and block rather than attack any intruders. Despite their guarding instinct they remain very affectionate towards their owner. They are a very muscular breed of dog so, although they are gentle by nature, it is worth using a harness and lead when walking them, as opposed to the more conventional collar and lead. Despite their appearance, they are very sensitive and need to be trained gently using treats not harsh methods. Famous Owner: Marlon Brando.
