We recommend that all pet families have pet insurance for their pets. The cost of veterinary medicine is climing and this protects them and you alike. I have listed two that have good reputations, please decide what is best for you.

Raising the Puppies
We encourage you to visit us (by appt) and meet all of our Mastiffs. We typically have between 9 and 15 with us and usually 1-4 who are visiting while parents are away on vacations or such.
All of our guys are brushed each day , nails clipped, teeth brushed and ears cleaned every one to two weeks. They have large areas to play and hangout and their own space to rest. They go on playdates and hang out watching TV with us. Nothing compares to being the adored pet in a family, but we come as close as is humanly possible. We love the all deeply and when they go to homes the love does not end. In short, we care from birth to the twilight years.
Beowulf Mastiffs have bred and finished over 300 Champions with titles that span the globe, many with group placements and Best In Show Wins.
We have proudly bred the top Mastiffs in 7 countries and work to support their owners who are leading the way for wonderful Mastiffs across the world.
What is most important is that they are good family members, without that, they have little worth.
Beowulf Mastiffs Global believes that soundness of body and mind is essential. Our mastiffs are traditionally fit, lean and lovable. While our mastiffs are content to share your couch, they are also quite capable of jogging two-five miles. They are gentle but protective, massive yet lean. Most of all they have a strong desire to be loved by you.
From birth to 3 weeks they have a human with them 24/7. Mom's nurse and we follow with a bottle. This part is more for us, we love to hold, hug and kiss them. Babies only care about eating so without the bottle they are not that interested in us. So it is baby bribery... We chart who is eating and what and when they are eliminating. This also gives us the unique opportunity to intently observe their individual personalities from the very beginning.
At approximately three to four weeks old, Mom will stop cleaning up after the babies, it is at this time we begin a house-training program. Puppies kept in a very clean environment train very easily, we use this and we schedule their routine to coincide with nature. By the time they go to their new homes they are accustomed to pottying outside. In addition, they have also had their teeth brushed, nails clipped, ears cleaned, wearing a collar and they have been introduced to leads. Mastiffs need socialization for sound mental and emotional development.
At seven weeks puppies are neurologically complete. This means they have done everything they need to do with their Mom, and litter mates. We are able to observe their core personality traits and find out which puppy was born to be yours based on the information you give us.
At eight weeks of age our puppies are placed in their new homes, where they will promptly try to steal your heart as each and every one of them has stolen mine.
One of the singularly most important decisions you will ever make for the longevity and health of your Mastiff Puppy or older dog is what you choose to feed them.
Beowulf Mastiffs Global strongly recommends you feed Life's Abundance Food for Pets. It is quite simply the best.
Please go to www.totalpethealthonline.com and order not only the all life stage food but the synergistic Wellness Supplements also. It matters and they love it.
