Mastiffs, also known as Bandogs, Bandogges, are large dogs that are known for being gentle giants. They are highly intelligent and calm by nature, and love nothing more than being in their home environment and participating in everything that is going on around them. They form extremely long bonds with their owners, which in short means that they thrive in human contact and as such are best suited to families where at least one person usually stays at home when everyone else is out of the house. They are also often referred to as English Mastiffs and due to their sheer size they need plenty of space, both indoors and outdoors, to run free.
