About Banter Bulldogge

The Banter Bulldogge is a designer dog breed that Todd Tripp developed in the late ‘90s. His goal was to recreate the Brabanter Bullenbeisser of 1700s Belgium. Starting with Boxers and other Bulldog breeds from the working group, Tripp combined careful thought, research, and selective breeding in order to create the Banter Bulldogge.
Food / Diet
To keep your dog happy and healthy, feed him a high quality food that is designed specifically for canines. Opt for a brand that uses whole food ingredients while avoiding artificial ingredients and allergens.
Once you have chosen the appropriate food, you can give your dog anywhere from 2 to 3 cups of dry food each day, splitting this amount into multiple feedings. If you want to also give your pet some canned food for dogs, simply reduce the amount of dry food accordingly so your pooch doesn’t end up overeating and gaining too much weight.
If you have any questions regarding what you should feed your dog, or how much he should be eating, consult with your vet. You can also talk to your vet about giving your dog a homemade or raw diet.
Because the Banter Bulldogge is obedient, this breed is also easy to train.

Common Health Problems
Like all other hybrid canine breeds, the Banter Bulldogge might be prone to developing the health conditions that most commonly affect its parent breeds. It is always a good idea to be aware of what the potential health problems are so that you can keep an eye out for symptoms. And it is also a good idea to purchase your pet from a reputable breeder who has proof that the parents are healthy and they are housed in a safe and clean environment.
There is no guarantee that your Banter Bulldogge will inherit any of these health problems, and there is no way to predict a dog’s long-term health, but your pet might be susceptible to heart problems, hypothyroidism, hip dysplasia, cancer, epilepsy, allergies, bloat, and eye problems because of its Boxer lineage.

Although the athletic Banter Bulldogge will have less energy when he’s inside the house, he should still be provided with a variety of toys that will keep him occupied and mentally stimulated.
When outside, these dogs love to play and run around. If you have an enclosed backyard, you can let your pet run off-leash. Interact with your pooch, as he will thrive on the attention and affection you provide.
Take your dog on daily walks to give him a good workout and let him release his energy in a positive way. You can also take your pet to the dog park, where he can interact with fellow canines. And if you are an active person who goes jogging or hiking, as a couple of examples, you can take your Banter Bulldogge with you, as he will enjoy the exercise.

You can also bathe your dog when he gets too dirty.
