There are truly as many methods to raise a English Mastiff puppy as there are to rearing a child. In truth, one method per family at least! However most of us concur that when it concerns kids, many things are universal and undisputed. Here are three things that a lot of people just do not remember when it comes to raising their English Mastiffs, nevertheless.

The thing we all enjoy about English Mastiff puppies most is the fact that they live for us, the way they focus all they have on us, the fact that our lives become theirs. In the beginning, they study us to discover our body movement, our expressions and our language. Until we teach them the English language, it’s all they have. If we say, “Wanna go out?” one day, “Need to go potty?” the next day, and, “Hafta pee?” the third day, if they DO determine what we want, it is because we have actually picked up the leash and moved toward the door with a happy face! If you want to accelerate his training by three-fold, teach him YOUR language. Choose a command for EACH habit and persevere.

A young English Mastiff puppy’s metabolism is racing along faster than we believe.

The younger your English Mastiff is, the quicker he is growing, the more food and water he requires to fuel his metabolic process, and the more often he has to go potty.

And every time he goes potty outside, praise him to high paradise! “What a good PUPPY!”, “GREAT go potty!” and the like. English Mastiffs enjoy our happy faces, and they will do anything to get it.

English Mastiffs live for our facial expressions and body language.

He will understand the lesson, I guarantee it. However his attention span is just 3-5 minutes, so do not chastise him any longer. Love him up and give him your delighted face again. Physical penalty is never needed. Work with constant commands and loving appreciation and he will understand what you desire of him prior to you understand. He will end up being a master of your body movement and expressions in no time at all.
