    well, they all sound good,but a lab seems to be an all around favorite, they make good family pets, as puupies they tend to be pretty hyper, they need a firm hand and training (usually all dogs do) A mastiff is the same thing as a bull mastiff, they are huge, but very nice animals.

    I would go with a Lab – they are really smart and fairly easy to train if you start at about 6 months to a year.

    Other than the mastiff’s, keep in mind these are working dogs. They like to run and “retrieve”. Although smart, they usually train more easily when they are tired. They focus better after a work-out.

    Chessies: bold, independent, protective, sometimes dog aggressive. They look like Labs but in terms of temperament, they are nothing alike.

    Labrador Retriever: as the owner of 3 Labs I’m probably a little bias, but…loyal, intelligent, goofy, lovable, active, athletic, extremely easy to train and willing to learn, friendly to people and dogs, adaptable, versatile. Overall a wonderful breed. I would not be without one.

    Bernese: friendly, stunning to look at but prone to serious health problems. Do not live long. Not easy to train.

    Bullmastiff: very strong, prone to dog aggression, very stubborn, not easy to train.

    Masiff: gentle but HUGE, independent, not particular easy to train.

    English setter: out of all the breeds Setters are probably the hardest to train. Very independent but beautiful dogs with great temperaments.

    Out of these breeds, the Lab wins by a mile.

    Labs are very easy to train, although they can be stubborn. They are very intelligent and eager to please ?

    Burnese Mountain dogs are very high energy, need a lot of exercise and room to run, and are also stubborn in training but worth it ?

    Not sure about the others listed as I have never owned any of them.

    Good luck in your decision!

    That is totally up to you! If you put the time into it…they will all be happy. I have a Bernese, and we worked hard and it worked. It’s up to you!

    If a Lab has enough exercise, it’s a great dog! Chessie’s have a few issues…more dominant, can be aggressive with other dogs. Setters are very independant and sensitive.

    Exercise would make all these dogs into great dogs.
