This is the most important thing you can do for the health of your Bully, a high quality diet. American Bullies are known to have common food allergies that can cause havoc on a dogs body. We prefer to feed our dogs a raw diet because of the advantages of it but we do understand that a lot of people are still kibble feeders.
Grooming & Bathing
The smooth, short-haired coat is easy to groom. Brush on a regular basis with a firm bristle brush, and bathe or dry shampoo as necessary. A rub with a piece of toweling or chamois will make the coat gleam. This breed is an average shedder.
Exercise & Training
American Bullies must have plenty of regular exercise including a long brisk daily pack walk to relieve mental and physical energy.
