Bostalian Breed Maintenance
Since the Bostalian is a mix of the Boston Terrier and the Italian Greyhound, it makes sense that they will have similar care needs. The Boston Terrier has a simple short and smooth coat that will have a fairly low maintenance, not requiring regular grooming or bathing. Use a firm bristle brush and a comb to groom them when necessary. However, their eyes will require daily care and should be wiped with a wet cloth every day. Italian Greyhounds as well are one of the simplest and lowest maintenance dog breeds. They will only need to be rubbed down occasionally with a towel in order to keep their silky coat clean. They should only be bathed when they really need it. Dogs of every breed will need to have their nails clipped, ears cleaned and teeth brushed. Trim your dog’s nails once or twice a month, or less often if they get worn down quickly on their own. Your dog should have their ears wiped gently every week with a damp cotton ball to keep them clean and prevent the development of infections. It is best to brush their teeth every day, but twice or three times per week should be a minimum.
