Bull Terrier

© Lynn Pulsifer

Temperament: Can be VERY busy or quite laid back. Nosey, stubborn, clownish, a 3 year old in a dog suit. They bounce, they twirl, they chew and they dig. Need a lot of early socialization. Some are not good with cats and other small animals, or other dogs.
Bull Terriers are best suited to an owner with prior dog experience.

Height: Generally 18-23″, but there is no maximum or minimum height required

Weight: Around 50 to 75 pounds. They should give the appearance of the most dog in the space available.

Colour: White, white with coloured markings on the head, brindle, red and fawn with white, tricolour and solid colours.

Coat: Short harsh cost that does shed. An occasional brushing is fine, more often helps with shedding.

Feeding: Good quality kibble, grain free is good.

Housetraining: Fairly easy with a consistent effort.

Crate training: Recommended especially when left unsupervised. They will get into everything.

Training & Obedience: Basic obedience classes are good. Must use positive methods and be consistent.

Exercise: A good walk or 2 daily is sufficient. Bull terriers are not reliable off-leash, a fenced yard is a plus.
