Thank you for taking the time to stop by my website and learn about me, my family, and of course my Mastiffs!
Showing and breeding English Mastiffs has always been a dream of mine. When I was getting ready to go off to college, I met my first English Mastiff. He was a gorgeous brindle boy and I was instantly in awe at at his gentleness, temperament, and demeanor. During my four years in college, I was also a student of the Mastiff breed. I wanted to learn as much as I could so I was fully prepared to have one of them myself. As soon as I graduated and was settled enough to be a responsible dog owner, I set out looking for my first Mastiff and began to meet people in the Mastiff community. Little was I to know, that the saying is true.... why have one Mastiff when you can have two? Or three? Or four? :)
I am a Certified Veterinary Technician and I also teach Veterinary Assisting at the local college. My dogs always get the best of Veterinary care and socialization. Even though Miramont Mastiffs is our "kennel" name through the AKC we are not a kennel. Mastiffs thrive when they are involved with their family. If left alone and out of daily activities, they can become destructive, develop aggression and temperament issues, and are difficult to train. My Mastiffs live inside with my family and they are involved in all of the activities of our everyday lives. They all go to work with me, go on daily walks, and we even plan our vacations to places where they can come along.
My puppies only go to approved homes where we are sure that they will be valued family members. They go to their new homes with a puppy aptitude test (to ensure that the puppy's temperament will compliment that specific family, 2 year health guarantee, first vaccinations, dewormings, dewclaws removed, microchip, either a companion or show contract, AKC registration, and a lifetime of support.
I will only have a breeding if I am confident that I am breeding my girl to a stud dog that compliments her and will improve upon the Mastiff breed as a whole. I always keep at least one puppy for myself, and I strive to find the perfect home for every one of the other puppies in the litter. I hope that in doing so, that I build a lifelong friendship with the family that adopts my baby. I have been fortunate to have found wonderful families who keep me updated on our previous babies' lives and have become dear friends.
My girls are not bred at every heat cycle, nor have more than two litters in their lives. They are first and foremost our family members! I don't have a litter if I don't have the time to take the time off of work to properly care for and socialize them from the beginning. When one of my girls has babies, I have babies. We are a team and the babies are spoiled by both canine and human "moms" from the beginning :)
Each of my Mastiffs has their own personal webpage. Please visit each of their pages for pictures, pedigrees, health testing information, and general information and achievements of each of them. I am constantly updating this website, so check back often!
Please contact me if you have any questions about them or questions about Mastiffs in general. I always love to talk Mastiff!
