It's been a year now since our ten-year-old female bullmastiff passed away. I remember purchasing this book (and several others) not long after we got her; she was only a pup then.

"The Bullmastiff: Peerless Protector" is a good introduction to the breed, and I do recommend it if you are interested in bully breeds, or if you are thinking of getting a bullmastiff and know little about them. But it is not an owner's guide, so you'll have to look elsewhere for that.

A few tips about the breed from a seasoned owner, not all of which are found in this book:

1. Bullmastiffs are indeed peerless protectors. With but one caveat (see next item) there is no other dog breed with their desire, instinct, and ability to guard home and family. The next best thing to a loaded gun in the house, and to my mind better in some ways (e.g., no need to worry about gun accidents).

2. If you are looking for a guard dog, in addition to a companion, however, you want a bullmastiff with intact working instincts. This isn't always true of show dogs, but there are breeders who specialize in working bullmastiffs. It might also be a good idea to check shelters and breed rescue organizations, for it's quite possible that a sheltered dog would have better working instincts than a pedigreed one.

3. These dogs make a welcome addition to most any family: very loving but at times delightfully, frustratingly stubborn. Training shouldn't be a problem (bullmastiffs are reasonably intelligent), just don't expect too much beyond the basics ('sit', 'stay', so forth).

4. Be prepared for a mess. In addition to the mess one can expect from any dog, even a fairly large one, bullmastiffs take things to another level. Particularly the slobber--they shake it off everywhere (you'll be amazed at the range) and it's not that easy to clean.

In fine, if you're considering a bullmastiff, "Bullmastiff Peerless Protector," along with the little information I've given here, will at least help you make that decision. But once you decide a bullmastiff is right for you, you probably need something more, perhaps a good owner's guide.

The Bullmastiff by Shastid and Roach offers a wide variety of information on the breed. I read the book completely when I first received it and I often refer to it when questions arise. - From a Denair, CA dog-lover

I, like the reader's review before me, grew up in the dog show world with sporting breeds being my family's breed of choice. As I became an adult, able to decide on a breed of my own to raise and show, I developed an avid interest in the Bullmastiffs.

Through local channels, I was put in contact with the authors of this book who ultimately sold me the best dog I have ever had the pleasure of owning -- my Bullmastiff (who is six years old now). These authors have done all Bullmastiff fanciers a favor by putting their decades of knowledge about the breed in this book. It covers all aspects of the breed and answers many questions for both novice and expert fanciers.

Having witnessed first-hand the lineage of their breeding program, I can attest to the fact that they practice what they preach. This book has become my "Bullmastiff Bible" throughout my endeavor to build upon a kennel of my own. Highly recommended reading for anyone considering the addition of a Bullmastiff to their family setting.

This book covers everything for every level from a dog lover to a Bullmastiff breeder. This is a must-have for any Bullmastiff owner. Gives a great history of the breed and new puppy how-to's.

This is a great book for those considering a bullmastiff as a pet and for bullie owners. It portrays an honest and accurate overview of the breeds personality and how they fit in to family life.

I am awaiting my first bullmastiff pup and I was looking for advice primarily on care and training. In this book, although it did have some good information on care, very little had to do with trainng and day to day life with your bullie. There was extensive information on the development of the breed in Canada, U.S. and Europe which I wasn't particularly interested in. There was also a lot of good info on breeding, which I was also not interested in. If you are a potential "pet" owner, I do not recommend this book very highly
This book is an excellent source of information on the bullmastiff. Through this book did I fall in love with the breed. It has valuable information on what to look for in a breeder as well as the health concerns for the breed. As a first time owner of a bullmastiff, this book allowed me to become more familiar with the background of the breed. There is more information on showing a bullmastiff then I wanted, but this book was especially helpful.
