Watchman kennels is working in conjunction with Sealand Bullmastiffs to produce high quality Bullmastiffs along with maintaining the standard!

The owner of Sealand has been producing quality Bullmastiffs for 27+ years & was one of the original owners of Green Dragon Bullmastiffs, &  has some of the best Bullmastiffs in his  line. Watchman kennels is very grateful to be a part of what Sealand has worked hard for over the decades!! Please take notice of the quality & consistency of the dogs below!! 

We're also very blessed to have imported  "Faithful Watchman of the shadows in the dark"  & have more of these lines in the works !!

The Bullmastiff is fearless and confident, yet remains docile and sweet-natured with his family. They are natural guardians of the home, but do not bark much, as silence was a virtue when guarding estates. Bullmastiffs are independent thinkers and may not respond to traditional obedience training. The breed does not require much exercise or grooming, and can live happily in a house or apartment.


Bullmastiff Breed Standard

General Appearance

That of a symmetrical animal, showing great strength, endurance, and alertness; powerfully built but active. The foundation breeding was 60% Mastiff and 40% Bulldog. The breed was developed in England by gamekeepers for protection against poachers.

Size, Proportion, Substance
Size--Dogs, 25 to 27 inches at the withers, and 110 to 130 pounds weight. Bitches, 24 to 26 inches at the withers, and 100 to 120 pounds weight. Other things being equal, the more substantial dog within these limits is favored.

Proportion--The length from tip of breastbone to rear of thigh exceeds the height from withers to ground only slightly, resulting in a nearly square appearance.

Head
Expression--Keen, alert, and intelligent. Eyes Dark and of medium size. Ears--V-shaped and carried close to the cheeks, set on wide and high, level with occiput and cheeks, giving a square appearance to the skull; darker in color than the body and medium in size. Skull Large, with a fair amount of wrinkle when alert; broad, with cheeks well developed. Forehead flat. Stop--Moderate. Muzzle--Broad and deep; its length, in comparison with that of the whole entire head, approximately as 1 is to 3. Lack of foreface with nostrils set on top of muzzle is a reversion back to the Bulldog and is very undesirable. A dark muzzle is preferable. Nose--Black, with nostrils large and broad. Flews--Not too pendulous. Bite--Preferably level or slightly undershot. Canine teeth large and set wide apart.

Neck, Topline, Body
Neck--Slightly arched, of moderate length, very muscular, and nearly equal in circumference to the skull. Topline--Straight and level between withers and loin. Body--Compact. Chest wide and deep, with ribs well sprung and well set down between the forelegs. Back--Short, giving the impression of a well balanced dog. Loin--Wide, muscular, and slightly arched, with fair depth of flank. Tail--Set on high, strong at the root, and tapering to the hocks. It may be straight or curved, but never carried hound fashion.

Forequarters
Shoulders--muscular but not too loaded, and slightly sloping. Forelegs--straight, well boned, and set well apart; elbows turned neither in nor out. Pasterns straight, feet of medium size, with round toes well arched. Pads thick and tough, nails black.

Hindquarters
Broad and muscular, with well developed second thigh denoting strength & power, but not cumbersome. Moderate angulations at hocks. Cowhocks and splay feet are serious faults.

Coat

Short and dense, giving good weather protection.

Color
Red, fawn, or brindle. Except for a very small white spot on the chest, white marking is considered a fault.

Gait
Free, smooth, and powerful. When viewed from the side, reach and drive indicate maximum use of the dog's moderate angulations. Back remains level and firm. Coming and going, the dog moves in a straight line. Feet tend to converge under the body, without crossing over, as speed increases. There is no twisting in or out at the joints.

Temperament
Fearless and confident yet docile. The dog combines the reliability, intelligence, and willingness to please required in a dependable family companion and protector.

History of The Bullmastiff Dog

Bullmastiffs were originally bred from English Bulldogs (40%) and Mastiffs (60%), hence the name Bullmastiffs also known by some as Bull Mastiffs, as seen by the word separation.The Bullmastiff was created to be faster and more aggressive than the Mastiff, yet bigger than and not as ferocious than the Bulldog.  Despite your preference in the spelling of bull mastiffs, there is no mistaking the appearance of this breed of dog.The Bullmastiff’s known history in England begins around 1860, when they were developed to keep large estates and game preserves free of poachers.

Overall the bullmastiff loves to be with their family even if it is just following you around while you clean the house.  They can also be an outside dog as long as you give them the required attention on a daily basis.  A fenced in yard or country setting is good so they can spend their energy away from your furniture and breakables.

Before You Receive Your Puppy

All of our puppies are raised in our home with constant supervision and handling for the first 2 weeks of their lives.  We have 5 children that interact with the puppies daily which helps the puppies become very outgoing and well socialized.  We also start potty training the puppies at 3 weeks old and they will be familiar with a collar and leash.  This is highly important for the new owners so the puppies can adapt quickly to their new surroundings especially if you plan to show.  We have compliments from past clients on how well the puppies adapted and veterinarians comment on how well socialized the puppies are at 8 weeks old.   The puppies will also be vet checked, have their 1st shots, and be de-wormed before going to their new home.  Our efforts of building a good foundation is intended for your benefit.  As responsible breeders we have the best interests in mind for you, their satisfied new owner.
