Bull Terrier puppies can be tough to house train. It will often take a lot of time and patience for them to learn to go outside.

Bull Terriers do not like strangers. If you are not around to correct them, they can become aggressive. They do not get along well with other animals either. This is why they need to be socialised at a very early age. They need to be introduced to many different people and situations.

Bull Terrier Health Problems    

Bull terriers are normally a healthy breed. However, they still are susceptible to certain health issues.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder:

Bull Terriers are known for being susceptible to obsessive compulsive disorder. They will often chase their tail for hours. OCD can be treated with medications from your veterinarian. Never give your dog human medications.


White Bull Terriers are more susceptible to complete deafness. While coloured Bull Terriers are more likely to only lose hearing in one ear.

Skin Problems

Bull Terriers have sensitive skin. They can develop rashes and sores. When you own a Bull Terrier, you may have to change your detergent and cleaning chemicals. They may also have allergic reactions to their food. You will need to inspect the skin regularly. If there are any sores or rashes, they need to be treated immediately.

Hereditary Nephritis  

This is a serious kidney disease that is often discovered at an early age. It is due to undeveloped or faulty kidneys. This leads to high protein levels in the urine. Bull Terriers who develop hereditary nephritis will often die before they reach three years of age. However, some can live as long as 6 to 8 years old.

Heart Disease

Heart disease is an issue that is sometimes found in Bull Terriers. The severity of the issue can vary from a heart murmur to heart failure. Treatment will depend on the seriousness of the disease. It can sometimes be treated with medication. More serious issues may require surgery.

Lens Luxation

The ligament holding the lens of the eye can deteriorate, displacing the lens. This condition may be treatable with medication or surgery. In some instances, the eye must be removed.

Breeding Bull Terriers

A female Bull Terrier will often have an average of 5 puppies in a litter. However, they can have anywhere from 1 to 15. The pregnancy must be overseen by a veterinarian.  

Females should not be bred with males larger than her. This can lead to the puppies being too big, leading to delivery problems. The puppies can get stuck, and emergency surgery would need to be performed.

Complications are high during a Bull Terrier birth. Make sure you are ready to get help immediately if needed. This can have a large financial impact.

Female Bull Terriers are not always the best mothers. They are impatient and stubborn. There is a good chance you will have to take care of the puppies yourself.


Bull Terrier Puppies

Bull Terrier puppies are naturally aggressive and need to be trained early. They require socialising to learn how to act properly. They should never be left alone with other animals or small children. The dogs will treat these objects as prey, since they were bred to hunt.

Bull Terrier puppies need high-quality food that includes natural calcium. You will have to watch them constantly and safe proof your house. They are not picky eaters and will eat anything they get a hold of.


History of the Bull Terrier Breed

Bull terriers were developed around 1835, in England. They are a cross between the Bulldog and the Old English Terrier. Then they were crossed between the Spanish Pointer, English Terrier and Dalmatian. This breeding created a strong, unique dog.

Bull Terriers were originally bred for blood sports and hunting. They were powerful dogs that are strong and fearless.

Today, Bull Terriers have become domesticated. They are kinder and friendlier than their ancestors. But they are still tough and courageous dogs.

They make great pets for some people. But are not suitable for all families due to their stubbornness and aggressive tendencies.
