General Description

General Health

Generally a healthy breed. Some can have a tendency to having too much testosterone making them territorial. Neutering often helps.

Character and Temperament

Friendly dogs that have a great sense of humour and an extremely clever mind. They have strong physical attributes. They love company and hate to be left alone. Mental stimulation is a must and they can cause a lot of damage with their strong jaws if left to get bored. They are calm and affectionate but have been bred for fighting in the past and will react if threatened. Firm and consistent training is required from an experienced handler.

Bull Terriers love their food so careful monitoring is required to ensure that they do not put on weight.

Exercise

A good daily walk is required.

Grooming

A simple brush once a week is all thats really required, just to remove dead hair. This breed sheds twice a year.
