Grooming a Neopolitan Mastiff
Hair type:The straight, dense, short coat of the Neopolitan Mastiff comes in gray, blue, black, chocolate, mahogany and tawny, sometimes with brindle and white markings. A little white is permitted on the chest and toes. No white should be on the face. Chocolate dogs are rare.
Daily coat care: These giant, shorthaired dogs are easy to groom considering their huge size. All that is required is to remove loose, dead hair with a rubber brush. This breed is an average shedder.
Recommended groom frequency: Neopolitan Mastiffs don't require extensive professional grooming. They have an easy to care for, low maintenance coat and grooming frequency is at the discretion of a responsible owner.
A full dog groom at Petmania Grooming Studios will include - Full wash, dry, nail clip, ear clean & pluck, breed standard hair cut and conditioning spray.
Depending on the size and age of your Neoploitan Mastiff, you will need to feed between 550g and 730g of high-quality dry food a day, divided into two meals.
Our pet advisors in-store can help you find the most appropriate food for your dog, while you can find out more about the different dog food brands we stock here.
Although it is a very quiet and docile breed, it requires a lot of exercise when fully mature. Long walks several times a day are important for physical and mental well being.
Where to get a Neopolitan Mastiff
There are lots of places offering dogs or puppies for sale in Ireland, but we would always ask that you consider adopting a dog first. Our animal rescue partners have 100's of rescue dogs and puppies seeking a forever home and would be delighted to introduce you to them.
However, if a rescue dog is not for you, we do recommend that you choose a registered breeder and seek Irish Kennel Club registration papers which will confirm that the dog has been bred to their strict code of ethics.
