Irish Bostetter Breed Maintenance
Irish Bostetters are not hypoallergenic dogs and thus are not suitable for owners with allergies. They shed moderately and need regular, but not frequent, brushing to avoid tangles and look their best – particularly if their coat is on the longer side. These dogs should only be bathed once a month and have their nails clipped once or twice a month to prevent painful overgrowth or nail splitting. They should also have their ears and any face wrinkles that they inherit from their Boston Terrier parent cleaned regularly to avoid infections. Like all breeds, Irish Bostetters should have their teeth brushed daily.
