Bolognese Breed Maintenance
The long, fluffy coat of the Bolognese needs to be brushed daily to avoid matting. The eyes should be cleaned regularly with an eye cleaning product. The Bolognese can get tear stains under their eyes, although there are products available through your veterinary caregiver which can help prevent the staining. Tear staining can sometimes be caused by allergies, teething or ear infections. Dog foods that contain soy, wheat, corn and food coloring (common allergens) should be avoided. Many breeders suggest feeding Bolos hypoallergenic dry food. Monthly professional grooming is recommended which should include bathing, ear cleaning, and nail trimming. This breed does not usually shed making this canine ideal for people with allergies. Not a high energy dog, they will not demand too much from you, but do enjoy daily walks. Once home from their walk, they are happy to join you on the sofa. They do well with living in an apartment or having a yard to play in. The Bolognese puppy is eager to please and does well with obedience training.
