American Bulldog grooming is very easy because the breed has a short coat. However, its famous wrinkles need a little more attention. To help you properly groom your puppy, here are some tips on how to groom an American Bulldog.
An American Bulldog does not shed heavily but you must still brush your puppy’s coat using a soft bristle brush at least thrice a week to maintain its shiny and healthy look. This simple trick does not only keep the hair off your furniture; it can also be an alternative to giving your puppy baths. If you brush your puppy’s coat at least thrice a week, bath time can be as infrequent as once a week, even once every two weeks.
During the fall or the spring season, you might notice that your American Bulldog puppy sheds more hair when you brush its coat. This is normal for most dogs during these seasons. All you have to do is to brush your puppy’s coat more often than thrice every week until the shedding stops.
When it comes to the wrinkles on the American bulldog’s face and nose, you might need to exert a little more effort. These wrinkles must be cleaned at least five times a week, if not daily, depending on the individual dog. Use a soft, damp cloth or a baby wipe to remove any crud from the wrinkles. Also make sure that you dry them off completely after you have wiped off the crud if you don’t want any bacterial growth to happen in between the moist wrinkles.
If you forgot to dry off your dog after you removed the crud and bacteria started to grow in between your American Bulldog’s wrinkles, then you must bring your puppy to a veterinarian so he could recommend a specific care routine for your puppy’s case. Never apply any ointment or medicine that is not prescribed by the doctor. This can cause further irritation that can lead to a more serious skin diseases.
To be sure, you can give your puppy a bath every time you see a mild to medium crud build-up between the wrinkles. Blow dry the coat properly afterwards. Completely cleaning and drying up your puppy is better than to miss a spot for the bacteria to grow in.
Facts - Health
Although our network of breeders made sure that our American Bulldog’s nutrition is in their best condition, certain diseases might still arise in the future. To help you prepare regarding possible issues about your American Bulldog’s health, here are some of the common illnesses that may develop as your puppy grows. These diseases include hip and elbow dysplasia and entropion.
American Bulldogs are prone to a genetic disease called dysplasia, often developing on their hips and elbows. This disease occurs because there is a malformed socket, causing a bone in the area to rub against the socket instead of fitting onto it. Due to this malformation, the cartilage on the hip or the elbow wears away over time. Hip and elbow dysplasia will cause inflammation when not treated and can later on lead to arthritis. To avoid this condition, you must regularly take your puppy to a veterinarian to see if there are any signs of the disease.
Meanwhile, entropion is a condition wherein a part of the edge of the eyelids rolls inward or inverses. This causes this part of the eyelid (which bears hair) to touch the outer part of the eyeball. Entropion can irritate and damage the eye if not treated immediately. So if you notice that your American Bulldog is often squinting or tearing up, you should go to a dog ophthalmologist right away. Entropion can be very painful and it must be corrected, either temporarily or permanently, as soon as possible.
Facts - History
The history of American Bulldog roots from the ancient Mastiff line of dogs. It was only during the 1800s that the breed was introduced to the United States when workers, mostly farmers and ranchers, immigrated to the country along with their bulldogs.
After the breed arrived in the United States, they were mostly used for bullbaiting and hunting bears. At other times, American Bulldogs were also used in the sports called buffalo baiting that was then famous around the southern parts of the United States. It is because of this dangerous sport that bulldogs developed a hostile personality. Earlier breeds were ferocious and aggressive until they were trained to become working dogs in farms and ranches.
The American Bulldog’s history almost ended during the Second World War when most of the breed was killed. It was fortunate that a few American Bulldogs were kept safe on farms, mostly on the southeastern region of the country where they worked as livestock herders and farm guards. But of all the farmers who were able to keep their American Bulldogs alive, the presence of American Bulldogs today can be attributed to a man named John D. Johnson of Summerville, Georgia. This man took to himself to gather all the best American Bulldogs that he could find after the war so that he could preserve the breed.
Today American Bulldogs are kept in households as a pet. Many families choose to adopt an American Bulldog because of his family-oriented personality.
