Perhaps the best place to learn about a breed is through a regional or national breed club. Within these organizations you will find individuals with various degrees of experience with the bullmastiff who will be happy to share their knowledge with you. Many of the regional breed clubs have informal meetings and matches in which you can socialize your puppies and talk dogs. If you are unable to locate a breed club near you, contact the ABA for information on bullmastiff fanciers in your area.
