Boerboel / Presa

Hmm wolfie, the good presa is maybe hard to find in the uk, but thats also where the very best ones are. Theres a lot of crap everywhere but if you want a real deal hardcore working presa, then the uk is the place to look. If anything, you may not qualify to get one of the real ones because it is really hard to obtain a presa from top working security folks in the uk without knowing them and having experience and other qualifications, but it can be done. Just ignore the "breeders" and look for security professionals. I dont know enough good breeders of boerboels to recommend anyone specific, but i do know that you have to be even more careful and thorough when looking for good boerboels than when looking for good presas. Be careful because many boerboels are 1st gen pit/oem crosses, scatterbred bullmastiff mutts and non working quality curs, so really try hard to get good with respectable working people that can put you in contact with someone who has real purebred working boerboels before falling for some pet/show breeder's fancy website. Good luck with whatever you choose.

  • After carefulconsideration I have chosen the Boerboel. For seveal reasons. Mainly that a good Presa in the Uk is very hard to find. Guardians that can not guard are not my cup of tea. And there are somany like that in th Uk that the Genetic pool is being ruined in the Presa! Anymore info on Boerboels? I will keep you posted

      • Thanks for your reply. Yes you are quite correct - there is really one main producer of working Presa's. But I am not sure these are suitable for your average family. I have been told this by them and others too. The Boerboel does seem to be less owned by the "Hoodies!" Presa pupss are all over epups etc - whereas it is not the same with the Boerboels.

          • if i had to choose a boerboel, i would look for a breeder who doesn´t care about dog shows :!: i hope the bb will not be changed in temperament like we could see it with the dogue de bordeaux. i mean what gets judged in dog shows :?: not really impotant things. do they judge guarding instinct, braveness....no :!: all thing a good working boerbnoel should have. some people think these things make a dog dangerous, but for example the farmers in africa culled a dog that showed aggression towards kids or other family members. here some kennels that obviously test their dogs http://www.terraworld.net/dkhfarms/index2.htm http://www.topguardkennels.co.uk/ http://www.boerboels.com/English/working_boerboel.htm maybe you let us now which breeder was the breeder of your choice

            • hi there. just my small input. I have a 12m old 117lbs Boerboel male that comes into my shop. They got him from www.powerboerboels.com (New Jersey, USA) they do not care about comformation. They focus on STRENGTH, INTELLIGENCE, COURAGE, AND LOYALTY. This guy is a big LUG. Very attentive but very sweet and loving. The foundation Male was imported from South America and their main Bitch is from Proffers kennel here is USA. As for Presa...I do not know that much about them but just wanted to share the info on the Boerboel. have a good day!

                                    • I must say that I know a few people who own some examples of dogs of both breeds in the UK, though because of the care for each breed, the best are selectively bred and selectively distributed within the populous. There is some awesome old school Curto blood in the UK that is hard to attain anywhere else, as well as some impressive examples of the Boerbeol as well. IMO, it would come down to size and personal preference if both were obtainable...

They are far from stupid and for you to say so is an insult and irresponsable. Maybe you should be more selective and pick from a litter with more easily trained parents. There is nothing wrong with his eye, he has a pigmented spot on his inner lid.

There is no best dog. Just what are you are going to use them for. And finding the right individual for the job. Caucasians and other livestock guardian breeds have an independent nature.Which has been stated before on this site. And require different type of training. I might be generalizing, but others may chime in. Here is some food for thought on having a guard dog:[link=hyperlink url][/link]//www. rottweiler-int.com/puppies.html[link=hyperlink url][/link] Richard

And although it is difficult to generalise you will see certain traits re occur is owners accounts of their breed.For me the Boerboel has the edge but this is my own personal preference. [/html]

The moment you cease, the trait may disappear. There is no such thing as a population of dogs that are 100% able to perform this or any trait. All breeds have their "culls" it just depends if they are or not.

Both breeds should exhibit natural guardian traits and defense. Some report quite enthusiastically, I might add. Different stock will have different levels of human or animal/dog reactiveness, or combinations of the two. As in most guardian breeds, with an increase in show popularity, the temperament will "soften" in the show world, potentially making a greater variance in the breeds temperament.

It is very difficult for any one to give you the answers you desire. Sometimes it is easier to know, what you must AVOID. As explained by Igmusta - showlines of any kind - as clearly these are breed with appearance in mind. Even if the breeder claims the breed is a natural guardian and when you need it it will guard. The fact is the pups are products of their genes and will have those traits their parentage had. That said you may still get pups unsuitable as guards even with the best parents! If I use an example of some dogs I have known - one of the best guard dogs was a Bullmastiff - great with kids and obedient etc but a REAL guardian. This dog was like the real old type Bullmastiff as this breed was originally bred to be able to effectively deal with a real - life or death situation and protect it's owner at all costs. However it would probably finish last in a Bullmastiff dog show. And so was never used at stud and therefore these outstanding genes have not been passed on. I have also known some Bullmastiffs who are hopeless guards or even watchdogs. Several which have done nothing when real life situatons have presented themselves and the dogs have failed miserably - But they were great at dog shows and therfore were used as Stud dogs repeatedly! So more often than not these are the foundations for this breed in the UK. That is the problem with generalisations I suppose. Every breeder has a different notion of what is important and how they prioritise these qualities. So it is not so much the BREED but the Lines within the breed.
