Bullmastiffs are relatively easy maintenance in the grooming department all thanks to their short, tight coat. This means a weekly session using a grooming mitt will keep any dead hair off the furniture and their coats looking good and gleaming. It’s also a good idea to keep an eye on a dog’s ears and to clean them when necessary to prevent any build-up of wax which could result in an ear infection taking hold. This type of ear infection can be notoriously hard to clear up.
However, because Bullmastiffs are so prone to develop skin issues on their faces and muzzles thanks to the folds, it is essential for the creases to be regularly cleaned to prevent a flare up. The folds provide the perfect environment for bacteria because they are warm and moist which is everything that bacteria can thrive in.
