Do Boerboel Dogs Need To Be Groomed Regularly?
Owning a a Boerboel and want to know how often do a Boerboel Dog need to be groomed or should you bathe a Boerboel?
According to dog experts, Boerboel Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that require grooming regularly.
Low Maintenance: Grooming is only necessary once in a while to maintain upkeep. No trimming or stripping needed.
Why Brush or Groom Your Boerboel Dog?
Brushing also assists to spread healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, promoting a shiny coat and helping dust to slide off the hair. This can also help to reduce the need to bath and therefore lower the frequency of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Boerboel dog are tasks that help to reinforce the positive relationship bond between your pet and you. Brushing should be an enjoyable and comfortable experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Boerboel
Dogs with short coats commonly require less brushing and grooming compared to dogs with medium to long haired coats as these longer coats can get tangles, mats and debris trapped in them more easily.
Some very short-haired pet dogs may not need traditional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may instead like to try a soft grooming glove to delicately remove loose hair, occasionally.
Dogs should be brushed 'as required'. Owners should keep an eye on the condition of their dog's coat, looking for any tangles/mats or dullness which suggests they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a few minutes to a number of hours a week depending on your type of dog.
The Boerboel is self assured and fearless. It is highly devoted to family and affectionate with children it knows, but can be aggressive toward strangers. Friends and other pets should be introduced with care, preferably early in the dog’s life. The Boerboel has an unusually high requirement for human companionship—periods of isolation will result in destructive and disobedient behavior.
