Miniature Bull Terrier Dog Grooming Instruction - Brushing Hair & Coat
Most dog's hair and coats need some attention. The Miniature Bull Terrier dog grooming instruction for caring for your dog's hair or coat is as follows:

  • The Miniature Bull Terrier has a short, flat, harsh coat which only requires occasional grooming. Unless your dog or puppy is going through its twice per year shedding period, then grooming of the hair is only really necessary once per week or even fortnightly
  • Start at the head of your dog or pup, and gently comb down the body
  • The grooming procedure is important as it will keep your dog or puppy's coat looking shiny, healthy and presentable
  • During shedding periods, it is advisable to groom your dog or pup daily to help remove any dead or loose hairs - using a rubber glove to rub down the coat will help with this.

Bathing your dog is very important for its health and hygiene. During bathing check your dog for lumps, bumps, parasites, fleas and skin irritations or allergies. Miniature Bull Terrier Bathing instruction is as follows:

  • Wash your dog or puppy when they are dirty or smell!
  • Gather bathing equipment and place bathing tools and shampoo near to bathing area
  • Place a mat and towel next to bath
  • Check the water temperature of the bath - ensure that a minimal amount of water is used
  • Gradually place the dog in the bath - be aware that this may frighten your pet
  • Gently shampoo your pet - be careful of delicate areas such as eyes and ears
  • Rinse shampoo and towel dry. Then brush the hair

Miniature Bull Terrier Dog Grooming Instruction - Trimming Nails
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.

Written instruction is not enough as the risk of hurting your Miniature Bull Terrier is too high.

  • Your vet can help initially by demonstrating how to trim your dog's nails and supervise your first attempt
  • Spend some time touching your dog's paws and gently squeezing the area around the nails in order to familiarize them with this sensation
  • Seek advice from your vet about the most appropriate nail clippers for your pet
