Praetorian Bullmastiffs was established in 1984. Then, we were a family of six, three boys and one girl, who were all in their teens. We purchased our first two Bullmastiffs as family companions and… well, one thing led to another and we had a litter of twelve premature pups. A lot of hard work, some heartache and a lot of fun!
We have been breeding Bullmastiffs since and have enjoyed the years we’ve spent with them. Our goal is to breed sound, healthy Bullmastiffs with great temperaments. We currently have produced the sixth generation of Praetorian puppies.
In our breeding program we screen for hip and elbow dysplasya
and thyroid. Out of our breeding stock, to date, we have produced nine O.F.A certified
Excellent, on the hips, that we know of, and the remaining are coming in Good.
We have a young group coming up with great potential, so we hope to increase the
Excellent count! We do temperament testing and go to great lengths to match the
correct puppy with its new family. All new puppy owners are encouraged to enroll
and attend training in obedience, and if planning to show, conformation classes.
The training is very important in regard to socialization and behavior.
