Pocket Pitbull Breed Maintenance
The regular grooming maintenance for this crossbreed should be exceptionally simple. They only require bathing a few times a year, unless they get into something particularly messy or stinky, and brushing is a simple affair that can be handled in just a few minutes once a week or so with either a slicker brush or a grooming glove, although those with a double coat of the Patterdale may shed a bit more than those who inherit the single-layer coat of the Pit Bull. This hybrid may be more likely to develop skin conditions than other dogs, however, so it is important to inspect their skin to check for rashes or swelling on a regular basis. Pocket Pitbulls with white or light fur may be more prone to developing skin cancers and should utilize sunblock designed for canines to protect them from the ultraviolet rays.
