What makes Bull Terriers great pets?

Fun, energetic Bull Terriers make popular show dogs and family pets. Despite their reputation, they generally have great temperaments – although you may need to set some ground rules to ease them into home life. Having pet insurance for your Bull Terrier can help you enjoy your time with your pet, without worrying about the cost of taking them to the vet.

 

Do Bull Terriers have any known health conditions?

The Bull Terrier Club strives to keep the breed’s health issues to a minimum, and hopefully your Bull Terrier will live a long and healthy life. But it’s worth knowing that they can be prone to:

  • deafness
  • kidney and heart disease
  • skin and coat disorders.

What types of pet insurance policies are there?

There are four main types of pet insurance for dogs. For an overview of each, head to our pet insurance page:

Tips for keeping your Bull Terrier happy and healthy

  • Diet: Bull Terriers are fast growers, so it’s important not to overfeed them. Provide your pup with a high-fat, sucrose-based diet that’s low in protein to avoid triggering allergies. If you’re uncertain about your dog’s dietary requirements, it’s important to talk to your vet to make sure they’re getting all the nutrients they need.
  • Exercise: Daily exercise is very important for your dog’s health and happiness. An hour of exercise every day, including walks and chasing balls, will keep your pup physically fit and energised.
  • Staying social: An active social life that includes both human-to-dog and dog-to-dog interaction will help your pet gain confidence – so he’s able to adapt to new people and situations quickly. Find your nearest dog park,or team up with other dog walkers in your area, to ensure your Bull Terrier can engage in social activities.
  • Vet check-ups: Veterinary visits aren’t fun for any dog. However, regular health check-ups, vaccinations and deworming are vital for keeping your dog in tip-top health. Try to get your pup used to going to the vets from a young age, to save stressful visits later on.
  • Oral health: Brushing your Bull Terrier’s teeth at least once a week will help prevent the build-up of nasty bacteria and keep periodontal disease at bay. You can also give your pup dental treats or chews to help promote all-round oral health.

What our expert says

“Bull Terriers are often thought of as quite an aggressive breed. However, with the right training, they become gentle and obedient pets. Engage your Bull Terrier in regular obedience training from a young age, then watch your pup grow into a loyal and loving companion.”
