About The Breed
It is believed that the American Bulldog is a descendant of the English Bulldog. There is a belief that the Bulldog lived found in America from around the year 17thcentury. They arrived in the United States in the 1800s with immigrants who brought their working bulldogs along with them. Small farmers and ranchers employed the all-purpose working dog for various tasks, including guardians of farms and stock dogs as well as catch dogs. The breed was largely successful especially those in southern regions because of its ability to bring down and capture wild porcine.
It is believed that the American Bulldog is considered a healthy breed. The owners should keep a record of exams and vaccinations suggested by their vet. Joint and hip issues are an issue for this breed. Hip and elbow exams should be performed. Similar to other breeds that are similar to the American Bulldog has the potential to suffer from genetic health issues. Breeders must screen any possible breeding pair for genetic disorders.
The grooming of your American Bulldog can be a fairly simple job. The breed doesn’t need to be bathed frequently and only occasionally as they get dirty. Regularly brushing keeps their coats shiny and clean. The nails should be cut every couple of weeks. They should clean their ears at least once every month or when required. The teeth of the dog should be cleaned often. A shedding pattern during the winter months is anticipated.
The early socialization of puppies and puppy classes are essential to channel the energy of the American Bulldog. The rules and routines must be set up at an early age and adhered to when the dogs mature. They need a firm, but loving hand to set and maintain acceptable boundaries. The more they are exposed to the best training practices as well as other dogs and even people, the more likely to be successful at managing them both in and out of their surroundings.
American Bulldogs are healthy dogs and do extremely well with a range of high-quality dog food. American Bulldog puppies should be fed a large-breed puppy diet during the first 14 months of their lives to maintain steady and slow growth. Puppy dogs shouldn’t be fed additional calcium until they’ve graduated from adult foods. Adult dogs should be fed good quality large breed diet, with additional supplements to help with joint, muscle, and coat maintenance.
