Boerboel Breed Maintenance
The Boerboel breed is fairly easy to groom and will enjoy every minute of the attention it receives. Due to their short, dense, sleek coat, they are easy to brush, and a monthly bath and an occasional dip are all that is needed to keep them looking their best. With regular grooming, they have an average shedding rate. They do love to play with the family, especially fetching a ball, which they will probably end up puncturing with their strong teeth, but not to worry, they will play just as happily with the flat ball as an inflated one. They do need a well fenced yard that will keep them in as they do not respond well to strangers, and will guard the property with their life. Exercise is important, and while your Boerboel will happily sit by your side all day, it needs active exercise to keep it fit and healthy. Due to their size and temperament, they are not apartment dogs; they need a yard to run in.
