Choosing the Best Dog Food for an Overweight Bolognese

The Bolognese is a dog breed identified by its distinctive coat. Its fur is white and curly and has a wooly texture. The coat is also long and shaggy and not clipped unless kept as pets. The fur is much shorter on the face, but without an occasional trim, it may grow down in front of the eyes and impair vision. This luxurious coat may benefit from a lot of maintenance, however. Without daily brushing, the hair will become matted which can be very difficult to repair without simply cutting the fur. Alongside daily brushing, bathing the Bolognese at least once a month is recommended to keep its coat in tip top shape. The Bolognese is also known for its small size. Its size is a major factor in this breed’s spot in the toy group and role as a companion, as its size makes it easy to care for and a great fit for smaller living spaces, such as an apartment. The Bolognese is a relatively low energy dog. This is another reason is makes a great pet, but it also means that exercise and a healthy diet are even more important for a more active dog. Make sure to avoid overly processed dog food that may contain fillers like sugar, which can lead to unexpected weight gain, and exercise the dog regularly. Walking a Bolognese for about half an hour a day is recommended, and this can be spaced out into multiple smaller walks, if needed.
