need some advice, dexter is 15 weeks old. when im laying on the sofa he has to lay with me! but now when he gets up he has to stand over me for a few seconds before he will lay down. he puts his fron paws on my chest and just stares at me then licks me and gets down.

im just wondering if this is a normal thing, as i know these dogs do stand and hold people down when protecting etc. is he getting a bit big for his boots and thinking hes in charge of me or is this just another weird thing he does lol

Personally I would stop that- only because you are NOT going to want him doing it when he is fully grown!
i do push him off and tell him no, i just wanted to see if someone else who has this breed has any views on this, def dont want him doing it when hes fully grown he would crush me lol

One of my Chihuahuas does this and Ive always thought he was just bonding with me!:) But as has been said doesnt sound like a good idea with a full grown mastiff!:D

Height, Weight
Height: Dogs 25-27 inches (63-69cm) Bitches 24-26 inches (61-66cm)
Weight: Dogs 110-133 pounds (50-60kg) Bitches 100-120 pounds (45-54kg)

15 stone is 210lb.. So it would be at least 100lb overweight :eek:

statistics arent always right on the internet my brothers got a DDB hes 18 months roughly! and is 11 stone (this was last month when he was weighed) it says the max is 65.2kg he dosent stop growing till he is 3 so im guessing he will put on more!


and he is no way over weight!

yeah we can all use google im not stupid
nothing to do with google unfortunately its about knowing the breeds you've been involved with and interested in over the years.

if youre worried about what he's doing and how to correct it why not speak to his breeder? i can tell you that once breeds like him reach a certain age , they more often than not can become more challenging so probably a good idea to nip it all in the bud while hes little.
