The Proper Care, Nutrition and Feeding for Bull
By: Tippy & Alfred
The Bull Terrier breed is healthy in general, but some lines have
a tendency to suffer from zinc deficiency which, when severe,
can cause death. Some exhibit compulsive behavior like tail
chasing or chewing. Some are genetically prone to
dislocation of the knee caps (slipped patellas).
Some male Bull Terriers have too much testosterone which
makes them highly territorial. Neutering will often fix this
problem. Bull Terrier dogs are prone to weight gain and can be
sensitive to parasites like fleas. They are also prone to
weight-related allergies. White bull terriers are often born
deaf in one or both ears.
A Bull Terrier, especially a male Bull Terrier, may become
aggressive to other dogs if not properly socialized and not
given good leadership. Unaltered males may not get along
well with other male dogs ever. Males and females tend to
get along okay and two females are fine as long as they are
socialized to each other or supervised.
Bull Terriers need a lot of exercise and firm consistent
training. Like nearly all intelligent dogs, they need
structure and training or they can become destructive. And
like all bulldogs, they are instinctively dominant and
stubborn, so obedience training is necessary in order to
have a good dog. Owners who do not display authority
properly may find this dog to become jealous, possessive,
overprotective and willful.
Bull Terriers do not like their owners quarreling and may
even jump into fights. They do love and want to please their
owners though, so be sure to use positive reinforcement
rather than physical correction in training your Bull
Terrier. Angry words and physical correction seldom work
well on dogs anyway, and this is especially true of both
bulldogs and terriers.
Bull Terriers are not recommended to be around small
animals. They are a somewhat difficult breed to manage and
train, but they are excellent watch dogs and make good
companions and family dogs.
The Kind of Nutrition your Bull Terrier Needs
Jane R. Bicks, D.V.M
The Bull Terrier is a strong, muscular, active
and intelligent dog that requires exercise to
keep mind and body well.

Keeping Bull Terriers occupied during your absence
requires hollow bones filled with peanut butter,
non-destructible chew toys, and any interactive
toy you can design.
Hang a strong spring from the doorway and tie a
rope to it that's just long enough for the dog
to reach when he jumps up. Connect a hard rubber
toy to the rope.
If shedding becomes a problem, a fatty acid skin
and coat supplement or vegetable enzymes are needed.
