The American Mastiff is quiet, loving and loyal dog. It is excellent with children. It is protective to its family but not aggressive. This breed has natural instinct for an “order in its pack”. This means that the human should act like a leader – he must be higher up in order than the dog.
Like all dogs the American Mastiff should be taken on daily regular walks. It’ll be happy if it’s given regular exercises too. If it is exercised right, this dog will do fine in an apartment too.
