The Boston’s sleek, fine coat does shed somewhat, though not a lot. Weekly brushing with the Hertzko Bristle Brush or Pet Grooming Mitt & Fur Remover will help to remove the loose hair. A good brushing also promotes new hair growth and distributes skin oils throughout the coat to help keep it healthy. Bostons need to be bathed only occasionally, unless they get into something messy. As with all breeds, the Boston’s nails should be trimmed regularly, because overly long nails can cause the dog pain as well as problems walking and running. Use either the Hertzko Professional Nail Clipper & Trimmer or Hertzko Electric Pet Nail Grinder.
