Bullboxer Pit Breed Maintenance
These dogs are fairly easy to deal with in the grooming area, this hybrid’s short coat is easily manageable. Monthly baths are usually adequate for these dogs; however, they do require regular brushing with a curry comb or soft bristle brush several times a week to control the shedding. Medicated shampoo may be required if any skin disorders such as mange or allergies develop, and if your dog has inherited the facial folds and wrinkles of the Boxer, the face and muzzle area should be examined and wiped down on a weekly basis or more to prevent the formation of red yeast and other fungal or bacterial infestations, particularly as this hybrid has a tendency to drool rather heavily. The paw pads for these powerfully built animals also require special attention to prevent drying and cracking, including the use of a good dog-safe moisturizer. This should be started as early as possible to sensitize the animal as some Pit Bull variety breeds can be reluctant about having their feet touched.
