The love for dogs and specially for the Spanish Mastiff comes from a long time ago. In those years of my childhood in Sierra Morena, in the middle of sheepherds and Mastiff dogs, when there were still wolves around, I took in my subconsciousness the images of this legandary, almost mystic dogs. When the shepards and their helpers on the mules and the infinite column of goats and sheep were moving to the wintergrass southwards, and once in a while an enormous Spanish Mastiff were walking past, all this seen through children’s eyes, these dogs looked like real gigants with their spiked collar (in defense of the wolf). This image has been repeated year after year in one or the other direction, and my sister and me we looked at this spectacle in astonishment next to the path just below of our estate.
After years and very far from this difficult but very beautiful piece of earth, the idea of having these dogs accompanied us. And the possiblity of not only owning some, rather than breeding them came finally true thanks to our space around our country house and estate Cerro de Viento, a high and sunny hill, close to the Mountains Montseny in the region of Girona (North-East Spain)
Here our dogs have got enough space to run around and train their muscles in perfect harmony with the family. And they mainly guard the house and other animals (sheep, chicken and rabbits). That is their work after all.
From here we want to contribute to the excellent work of AEPME- Asociación Española del Perro Mastín Español (= Spanish association of the Spanish Mastiff), and we fully accept their criterions and rules.
