Boston Terrier Grooming Tips
Combing the coat:
If you’re not a fan of cutting hair then you’ve made the right decision in choosing a Boston terrier as your pet; because they have such short and course all over body hair it hardly sheds at all. Some great grooming tools for your terriers coat are the rubber palm brush and grooming mitt
Put these on and start massaging the surface of your dogs coat in a circular motion, this will get rid of loose dead hairs and help to stimulate the release of oil giving a clean sheen to their coats.
It’s recommended that you brush your dogs coat at least once a week, but if you forget it won’t make a huge difference to their coats appearance.
Bathing your terrier:
If you’re Boston terrier starts to smell a little more than usual you can give him or her a quick bath, but this should be done only if necessary to protect your Boston terrier health levels.
Because they have short coats over cleaning your dog might lead to dry and itchy skin, which will in turn cause them to scratch more than usual causing sores and cuts.
Use warm soapy water and a regular non-chemical organic shampoo to clean out the debris and old body grease, after showering go over your dogs coat with a hand mitt brush to stimulate their skins oil production to avoid dry skin.
You might want to trim your dog’s nails before attempting to bathe them, just in case they react violently and scratch into your skin.
Cleaning your terriers face and eyes:
Yet another important area to focus on during your Boston terrier grooming sessions is the face, use a damp cloth to clean all over the surface and in between the facial area wrinkles.
This should be done on a daily basis and a lot of attention should be put on cleaning the debris and build up around the eyes.
Boston terriers are known to be susceptible to several serious eye conditions, buy a good quality bottle of canine eye drops from your local vet and apply on a weekly basis adding 3 drops per eye each time.
