New Mastiff Mommy & New to the site
« on: February 16, 2009, 08:52:21 am »
Hi there. Still trying to figure out the site. How to post and all that fun stuff. So I figured I would introduce myself this way and if anyone has tips let me know :)
So I'm new to the site because my husband and I just bought an adorable english mastiff puppy, Cooper, on Jan 28th. He is ten weeks old and has possibly already stolen my heart. We already have a six year old yellow lab, Chance. We knew more about labs and so it was easier to train him. I don't know anyone who has a mastiff and am worried I won't make the right decisions for our new baby. So I plan on diving in head first with all the information you all already have on here. Anything else would be greatly appreciated. He is already training wonderfully which I contribute to my husband and Cooper's new best friend Chance (who is doing a great job of helping train Cooper). Thanks in advance for any advice or tips you can throw my way!

Hello and welcome to BPO!
Oooh, a mastiff puppy?!  Pictures are mandatory so you must post some post haste.  ;)

My name is Chris, and my crew consists of Keiko, an almost 11 yr old husky/shep mix, Gunther a 4 yr old great dane, and Nigel and Posey, two 3 yr old rat terriers.

Welcome! You are in the right place for learning anything Big Dog related. I do not post often, but have learned more in the few months I have been here than I have anywhere else. No question is ever treated poorly, and the amazing group here are always supportive and helpful. Yes, pictures are mandatory!
