GROOMING YOUR AMERICAN BULLY
American Bullies may be a large type of dog but since they have short coats that moderately shed, grooming them is not much of an inconvenience. It is easy and manageable to keep them neat and posh. Brush them at least once a week; too much brushing will damage their coats and they will shed more than usual. Bath them only when necessary. When it gets cold, keep them indoors and give them blankets. Always check their skin for any signs of allergies, irritations, and parasites.
