Training a dog is always work and so is the Dogue de Bordeaux. First of all, it’s good for you to know that we wouldn’t recommend the Dogue de Bordeaux as a first dog, as they need an experienced hand in their training. The most important point in raising a Dogue De Bordeaux is socialization.
You should start with this as early as possible because then your dog will really be as relaxed as this breed can allow you to be. It’s also important to keep a Dogue de Bordeaux busy by playing interesting games to keep them entertained.
Another point is the fact that Dogue de Bordeaux were also used as guard dogs in the past, which is why they are still suitable today. However, if you do not want a guard dog, you should get the dog used to strangers early on and repeatedly bring them into contact with strangers as the keeping process progresses. This will also help keep your Dogue de Bordeaux from barking.
Finally, you should know that Dogue de Bordeaux are not only big dogs, but also have a big appetite. So consider this in the financial aspect before purchasing that the feed for this breed is not cheap.
