Introduction

A Bull Mastweiler is the result of two large dogs breeding - the Bull Mastiff and the Rottweiler. Both parent breeds are fiercely loyal, loving, and protective, so it’s fair to assume the resultant offspring will be as well. As a result, it can be a challenge to come up with different activities that will appeal to their stature and large-as-life personality. However, you’re sure to find these options below go a long way to satisfying their need for stimulation.

Dog carting is a fun, fulfilling activity that tends to be suitable for larger dogs such as Bull Mastweilers. While it can be expensive and challenging to learn, it becomes a rewarding sunny-day activity you can do with your dog in 20-minute sessions. All you need for this activity is a harness, treats, and a cart. You can then go about training your Bull Mastweiler in dog carting for hours of fun. It’s important to note, however, that dog carting requires you to provide your dog with a safe environment. Never push your Bull Mastweiler beyond their capabilities or limits.

Step
1
Desensitize
Carts can be noisy, clunky, and scary vehicles. At first, they can even scare your Bull Mastweiler if you don’t put enough effort into preparing them. When you get your cart, make a point of feeding and rewarding your pooch around it. Use high praise as you make noise with the cart, and move it around often so they can get used to the sounds it makes. Eventually, you can take your dog for a walk beside the cart.
Step
2
Harness pulling
While most dog owners want their dogs to stop pulling on their leash, for the sake of dog carting, you want your dog to pull. If they don’t do this naturally, take them for a walk and have someone walk in front of you providing an incentive for them to pull.
Step
3
Carting
Once your Bull Mastweiler can pull and the cart doesn’t bother them, you can begin carting. Start by hooking your dog up to the cart and rewarding them for doing so. When they are comfortable, let them walk with the cart attached but provide resistance so they have to pull it. With enough time, they will be able to pull a human on a cart.

Activity description

Rottweilers are natural guarding dogs by instinct, so it makes sense to think your Bull Mastweiler could be too if that trait is more dominant. If you want your dog to guard your property while you’re not home, these steps below can help. Be warned, however, teaching your dog guarding behavior is something you may find easier if you leave it to the experts. It can be quite challenging and typically not for a novice dog owner. However, this sunny-day activity is free and will only take a few weeks of one-hour training sessions with a treat, leash, and toy.  

Step
1
Socialize
One of the most beneficial things you can do for your dog is helping them to understand that not everyone is a threat. Take them to a dog park or another social area often so they can learn to play and socialize with other people and pets. They can then see the difference between regular situations and potentially dangerous ones.
Step
2
Basic commands
You can’t hope to train your Bull Mastweiler unless they know all the basic commands. Ensure you cover all the necessary ones such as sit, stay, and come, so you have more chance of controlling them and their behavior going forward. You need to have full control of your Bull Mastweiler as you wouldn’t win against them in a fight of brawn.
Step
3
Guarding
Your Bull Mastweiler will have natural guarding traits, so you don’t need to do too much in the way of teaching them. Show them their yard and the area they need to protect and watch them in action. If you find they don’t bark when people arrive, work on teaching them to speak. Alternatively, you can see a training expert about fine-tuning their guarding technique.

Laser pointer
Activity description

Bull Mastweilers don’t need all that much exercise given their large size. Instead, they need a balance of mental and physical stimulation, as well as human interaction. You can offer all three components by way of playing with a laser pointer. This cheap, effortless, and all-weather activity only requires a laser pointer and ten minutes of your time. It’s also suitable for night-time fun and when it’s raining outside. Buy a laser and get this activity with your Bull Mastweiler underway. After a few games, your dog will come to you with a wagging tail every time they see their new toy come out!

Step
1
Buy a laser
If you intend on playing with a laser pointer with your dog, make sure it’s the right one. Some are too strong for your dog, and you should always use caution when playing with them. If you’re unsure, opt for a laser pointer you buy from a pet store. Keep it out of your dog’s direct line of vision.
Step
2
Play
Now that you have a laser pointer, you can set up an area in your home with no obstacles and play. Ensure there are no breakables and place it over darker furniture, carpet, and walls so it shows up better for your dog to see. You can then move it around slowly until they are thoroughly exhausted after ten minutes of play.

Ball

Any big dog, such as the Bull Mastweiler, will demolish a tennis ball - so why waste your money? If you want to play with your dog, choose a robust, large ball such as a basketball and invite them to play. The challenge of chasing and trying to carry the ball will wear them out entirely.  

Tug of War

Bull Mastweilers are broad-shouldered dogs which are not afraid to use force. Cater to their body type by inviting them into a game of tug of war. You will need a thick rope, but this activity will entertain them for a long time while keeping them fit and healthy.  

Conclusion

As you’ll know by now, dogs are furever. They want your love, affection, and quality time for the short time they have on this earth. Therefore, if you bring a Bull Mastweiler home, you need to prepare plenty of activities to keep them entertained and out of trouble. These options above may tick all the boxes.
