The names Bullmastiff, Bull and Mastiff, Bandog, Tiedog, and Gamekeeper's Night Dog have created an identity confusion of the breed known today as the Bullmastiff. It is one of the few dogs that was not adopted by Royalty and hence has not enjoyed the promotional publicity enjoyed by such breeds.
Owing to this, its origins, purposes and history have become a little obscure over time and lost in the annals of history. In the 1930's, breed historians such as Eric Makins and Arthur Craven did their best to axquaint the public with the breed of that time.
This book provides background, methods and a 'how-to' for novices and first-time owners, plus a host of information for the long-time fancier, in a comprehensive format to supplement the true fancier's library.

Bred for strength and as an ally of the gamekeeper in his war against poachers, fiercely loyal to its family yet with a loving and kind temperament, the Bullmastiff is truly a 'gentle giant'. As one of the largest and heaviest dogs in the world, naturally a fearless protector, the Bullmastiff needs to be understood, treated and trained properly. In return it will give its owner many years of loyalty, love, protection, warmth and affection.
Bill Walkey is especially qualified to write about this impressive dog. He has bred 36 champions under the Shayla prefix, has been Breeder of the Year four times and bred the only Bullmastiff to win both the Canadian and the American National Specialty Shows. This is also the only Canadian dog to with the ABA Specialty (National). Bill has judged in Britian, Denmark, Malta, the United States and Canada, and is one of the judges for the Specialty Show in Finland in 1999.
