Hi! Tubby is my first Bullmastiff ever and I love him to pieces! Although, I do have a question that maybe someone could answer. He is a very good boy, he knows his commands and is a HUGE mush bucket. Theres just one slight problem. Whenever he wants attention or to play he will jump at me and start biting (and hes recently starting doing the same things when i take him to the outside). Not as hard as I'm sure he could, but enough to bruise me. I tell him "no", I will try to redirect his attention to his stuffed rabbit, but that usually doesn't work. I have even tried smacking his bum, and I feel HORRIBLE about it after. Now, I'm the only one he does this to. So, I guess my question is, is it my fault he's doing this?
