Most dog's hair and coats need some attention. The Boston Terrier dog grooming instruction for caring for your dog's hair or coat is as follows:

  • Start at the head of the dog, following the hair growth and comb the coat thoroughly
  • Try using a firm bristle brush as this will help to remove dead hairs
  • Take care and be extra careful around any sensitive areas

Some dogs do not need their nails trimmed as they are kept short by general activities. However, should your dog's nails become long then they should be trimmed.
