Dogue de bordeaux
Dogs of Bordeaux (they are also called French mastiffs) were mentioned in ancient manuscripts, but appeared at dog shows only at the end of the 19th century in France. The official breed standard was registered in 1926. Dogs were originally used for hunting and protecting livestock, and then – to participate in dog battles. Now the most appropriate occupation for the Dogue de Bordeaux is the protection of people and their property.
An unflappable and phlegmatic outwardly dog instantly changes as soon as it comes to an attack on a house or an attempt on a family member. At this moment, it’s better not to fall into her teeth! Dogue de Bordeaux is not just a watchman, he is also a loyal friend who will feel your every mood. Its friendly, sensitive, calm character makes the dog a reliable companion for the owner and a patient toy for young children. Like any dog, the Bordeaux dog must be thoroughly trained and professionally trained. Rudeness and shouting towards the dog will negatively affect her attitude towards you.
Each owner wants to see his dog healthy, active and cheerful.
And, as you know, the basis of health is a proper, complete and balanced diet. Even if you purchase the freshest and highest-quality products, buy vitamins and mineral supplements, without a biochemical laboratory you cannot determine the exact nutritional value of the food you cook at home. That’s why PEDIGREE® has developed a special app that helps you evaluate how your pet’s diet meets its needs.
