Bullmastiff Calendars: The Bullmastiff is the doggy icon of power and purpose. Bullmastiffs show great strength, endurance and alertness. They are a natural guardian of the home and will not back down from a fight. To strangers they are rather standoffish, but they are loving toward their owner and friends. Bullmastiffs are normally very gentle, cheerful and calm. They make a devoted, gentle companion. They are very good with children, and are willing to please. Although they are large dogs, they are loyal and gentle. They are also known as the "Gamekeeper's Night Dog" because they were bred to accompany gamekeepers for the ability to track and overpower poachers. After poaching died out, game trials challenged these dogs to pursue and hold down a volunteer who would run out into the woods. The dog's command was to hold the person down, but not attack. The dogs always won and are excellent in obedience and strength. They can be domineering among their own kind, but are generally easygoing dogs. A strong but loving owner is suggested. The Bullmastiff is not for the weak and timid.
Bullmastiff Calendars make great Gifts.
