Protecting and Advancing the Interests of the Mastiff since 1883
What the Lion is to the Cat the Mastiff is to the Dog, the noblest of the family; he stands alone, and all others sink before him. His courage does not exceed his temper and generosity, and in attachment he equals the kindest of his race.
The O.E.M.C (Old English Mastiff Club) was first established in 1883, and as such has a long history. You can read about the clubs history below.
If you are interested in sharing your life and home with a Mastiff please have a good look at our site and if you still think this is the breed for you, we hold an Open show in April and a Championship show in August and you would be more than welcome to come along and meet our beautiful breed and chat to their owners.

THE MASTIFF IS A GIANT BREED AND ONE OF THE OLDEST BREEDS IN THE UK. THEY ARE AS FIT FOR FUNCTION AND FIT FOR PURPOSE AS ANY OTHER BREED - SUBSTANCE SUPPORTS THEIR SIZE.
The Mastiff is listed by the Kennel Club as a Vulnerable British breed. In 2009 the KC recorded 252 registrations but by 2018 the number had decreased by 43% to 143. Mastiff’s are currently listed as a Category Three breed.
The Mastiff is our most ancient breed and has been in our country for 2,000 years. They are thought to have arrived into England from Asia, brought by the Phoenician traders.
