Spanish Mastiffs are smart, strong and beautiful dogs. They are calm, even-tempered and well behaved towards people and pets.
Raising dogs of this breed is not easy. They need strong-willed, fair, self-confident owners with leadership qualities. Only with a responsible approach to training and proper socialization will this huge dog become obedient. With inexperienced owners, the Spanish Mastiff can become aggressive, which, given its size, can cause many problems.
The Spanish Mastiff is friendly to all people. They are peaceful, calm and friendly to strangers. Unless, of course, their owners are in danger.
These dogs are not devoid of motivation and aggression, but quickly react to threats. They are fearless and will fight bravely against any opponent. And thanks to their heavy weight and strong grip, they always win. Therefore, the main thing in keeping such large dogs is proper upbringing. Without it, mastiffs can become dangerous to others.

However, the Spanish Mastiff will never harm someone who is smaller and weaker than himself. They are patient and gentle with children. Despite his size, he can be an excellent nanny, making sure that children do not jostle or cause harm and protecting them. He enjoys running and playing with children. However, do not leave the dog when the child is playing with friends: screams and noise are perceived by the dog as a threat.

In a family, a dog is an affectionate pet. He is sensitive to people's moods and never pushes them away, but will gladly support a game or other activity. Loneliness is tolerated mildly if there is something to do, but out of boredom it can chew on objects and furniture in the house. Destructive behavior is especially severe in puppies and persists in mastiffs for three to four years.

Spanish Mastiffs are gentle with pets. These dogs were bred to be herders. They do not harm cats or small dogs. They will only get along with dogs of their own size and will fight for dominance.
