Nails should be trimmed regularly and control of foot problems should be a part of your daily routine, at the foot of a Bullmastiff has a lot of weight.

They can be lazy and if we walk in the evening and the morning is not unknown for them to "lose" in the shade during the day. They do not like wet conditions they prefer fresh. They adapt to the apartments and can be left alone during the day. It takes two walks to keep fit and healthy.
