Other Grooming Needs For Bull Terriers
A Bull Terrier will also require frequent upkeep in the following areas:
Ears: Look into the dog’s ears for extra dirt/debris and symptoms of illness on a frequent basis. If necessary, use a cotton ball and a light, vet-approved cleaner to clean the ears.
Nails: Trim a Bull Terrier’s nails every month or two (it’s time for a trim if the dog’s nails click when it walks/runs on hard surfaces). Regular nail clippers should be used, however, be careful not to trim the nails too short! It’s possible that doing so will cut into the nail’s “quick,” causing pain and bleeding.
Teeth: Bull Terrier teeth, like human teeth, require frequent cleaning to avoid plaque and tartar development, reduce foul breath, and stimulate the gums. Brush your dog’s teeth once a week using canine toothpaste and the same technique you use on your own.
