The Known history of the bullmastiff begins about 1860 in england.
They are natural guardians of the home, but do not bark much, as silence was a virtue when guarding estates. Bullmastiffs are independent thinkers and may not respond to some obedience training methods. But, basic obedience is a must for all Bullmastiffs. The breed does not require much exercise and can live happily in a house or apartment. The key to a successful relationship with an adult Bullmastiff is control and leadership.
