I'm a little late to this discussion. I shouldn't be but I am still stunned that you got the kind of reaction from the breeders that you did. Any breeder touting perfection isn't telling the truth anymore than any human (since Jesus Christ) is perfect. And saying you somehow damaged a pup by having a stranger stare at the pup at that age should be a joke but obviously wasn't. I've owned or handled several slow maturing breeds. Anyone who says having someone eye an 8 month old guardian breed i
As promised, to keep you updated, unfortunately, the mating was not fruitful :(
Why not some Bullboxer too?
That is a good idea. Would bring some more athleticism to the breed - wonder if that may introduce a smaller bone structure which is probably not desired.
"The original breeds were: Cane Corso, Presa Canario, Alano Espanol, CA de Bou, Dogo Argentino!

I promise myself of mating healthy and top performance dogs.
That promise you made to yourself is to be the basis of your breeding program and will serve you very well as you go. Too many people bread for a certain look and ignore form and function. By mating healthy top performing dogs you are highlighting both the good and bad that may be hidden the gene pool. This kind of performance breeding will enable the weakness to be easily seen and also enhance the po
Only issue I would see would be with regards to bite building.
Excellent that is good to know. Raw has worked well for us also. I wish we could find a place that sold whole rabbits. There was one in va but so far have not been able to locate one in Texas.
Our Alanos/Bandogs are usually not so heavy and usually have not many wrinkles on the head. The original breeds were: Cane Corso, Presa Canario, Alano Espanol, CA de Bou, Dogo Argentino. The last two races are not safe to hand as none of the founders is active anymore. So it's not a Mastino in the American Bandog. They're pure power dogs. Otherwise they are enormously similar to the American Bandog, therefore the union of both races. I have brought six litters so far, unfortunately only my
Rage Syndrome, also known as Sudden Onset Aggression or (SOA) or Avalanche of Rage Syndrome, is a rare but serious behavioral problem that has been reported most commonly in the English Springer Spaniel but also in a variety of other dog breeds.
While I have not seen or experienced this personally I
Excellent! Those sound like very good breedings. Have you noticed any particular traits or behaviour you can share with you? How does your bandogs measure up to the ones from Slovakia?
We call these dogs Alanos. I grow the breed since 2010. Since breeding is genetically too narrow, I am mating the next generation with American Bandogs from Slovakia. There you have very good Bandogs which have long been paired with Bandog x Bandog. Very healthy and powerful dogs.
Has anyone with experience owning an EBT witnessed SOA. I'm curious how prevalent it is within the breed?
Thank you; this matting was done in the past more than twice, I think, and produced good guard dogs; so I am hoping for the best; Anastasia/Lagertha is one of their offsprings; unfortunately, I lost her to a snakebite when she was 5 months old (http://molosserdogs.com/m/photos/view/Lagertha-10-weeks) I haven't been very lucky with my dogs over the past couple of years! Hope that things will start changing now :)
Thank you for the update. I wonder which carries the most dominant trait - the sire or the dam. I think it is the damme but I think there is an article on here or in the forum about this. So, if the mother is soft you will have a fairly good chance of getting a softer offspring. Maybe worth looking into.
The mating happened a week or so ago using; a different sire than what I hoped; still a good mating; the dam is Tzar's mother and it will be her last litter; the sire is imported from Belarus and looks very impressive; booked a male and made a deposit; if the mating is fruitful, the litter is expected by 22 September; will keep you posted to share the excitement with you!
Two healthy thriving dogs with excellent coats. The raw is working well.
roughly 500.00 per month.
Ouch - that hurts the old pocket book.
Wow.. Awesome job. Congratulations.
I have 8 dogs, I spend roughly 500.00 per month...
