Adult Bullmastiff to the Family or a New Baby.
If you are
introducing an adult Bullmastiff into the family we would
strongly suggest to purchase a crate first before you bring
the Bullmastiff home. Place the Bullmastiff into the crate
where there is a lot of activity for example the kitchen or
lounge room. This will allow the Bullmastiff to become
accustom to the every day hassle and bustle of his new family.
Allow your child to approach him while the Bullmastiff is
crated to feed him treats, but do not allow your child to
tease him. Watch how the Bullmastiff reacts to every family
member, if he shies away or is uninterested by looking away
then he will need to remain in the crate with the exception of
an adult taking him for walks. For an adult he will be going
through a complete lifestyle change it is quite normal for him
to go off his food for around the first few days. On average
a new Adult bullmastiff introduced into the family will need
to be crated for around two weeks. Once you feel confidant
that your Bullmastiff appears to be accepting to your
children, place the Bullmastiff onto a lead and allow your
child to approach him accompanied with an adult, again watch
how the Bullmastiff reacts if he seems happy to see your child
then welcome to your new family Bullmastiff if not then
continue crating the Bullmastiff and try again at a later
date. If you feel that it is not working then consult the
previous owner or breeder. No risk should be taken when it
comes to your child's safety.
