History The Banter Bulldogge is a breed developed by Todd Tripp in the late 1990s. Tripp wanted to recreate the Brabanter Bullenbeisser of the 1700s, a dog breed found in Brabant, a central Belgium province. The foundation of the Banter Bulldogge is a combination of Boxer and a wide variety of other working bull breeds. Tripp was very particular when it came to choosing dogs to form the foundation of the Brabanter Bulldogge. Much research and selective breeding was done before Tripp was able to achieve his goal.
The Banter Bulldogge is used for working, guarding, weight pulling, hunting, and as companion dogs. This breed is recognized by the International Olde English Bulldogge Association.
Appearance These dogs have a powerfully built, muscular, athletic body. They have a square-shaped muscular head with a defined stop between the skull and muzzle. Their teeth are strong, with a slight under bite. These dogs have wide-set, round eyes, and their wrinkled brow give off a look of heavy concentration. Their nose is black or dark red. The back of these dogs should have a slight arch, and their tail must be high set. Their legs should neither be lanky nor stubby, and must be proportional to the length of their body. The front legs of these dogs are well-defined and muscular, and their rear legs are also very muscular. Their body structure allows them to perform strong bouncing leaps. Their feet are compact and round, and their coat is short and smooth.
Colours Coat colours of these dogs include black, fawn, red, and all types of brindle. These dogs can have black masks. They can also have white in their coat, but this must not exceed 30%.
Temperament Banter Bulldogges make excellent family pets because they are loyal to their human family and they get along well with children. These dogs bark when there are intruders or when they sense danger, making them good watchdogs. When properly socialized, Banter Bulldogges can get along well with other canines. Dogs of this breed are also fun-loving and they like playing with their owners.
Weight Male dogs of this breed have a height of 21 to 24 inches and a weight that falls between 50 and 85 pounds. Females are slightly smaller, being 20 to 23 inches high and weighing 50 to 75 pounds.
Problems Dogs of this breed are fairly healthy and have no known genetic health problems. Ailments affecting this breed are those common to other dogs as well.
Living Conditions Being fairly active when indoors, these dogs would do well living in an apartment provided that they are given adequate exercise. It is, however, best for these dogs to have at least an average-sized yard where they can run around and play.
Requirements These dogs need plenty of exercise. They must be taken out for long, brisk walks daily. These dogs also enjoy playing with their owners.
Training Requirements Banter Bulldogges are relatively easy to train. Owners should socialize these dogs at an early age. When training these dogs, owners must not use harsh methods and should instead be kind but firm. When trained properly, these dogs are obedient and loyal to their owners.
Life Expectancy Dogs of this breed are expected to live for around 12 to 13 years.
Grooming These dogs are easy to groom. Owners need to comb and brush the coat to rid it of dead hairs. More frequent brushing is needed during shedding season. The ears of these dogs should also be kept clean and must be checked on a regular basis. Bathing these dogs should be done only when necessary, because frequent bathing can strip natural oils off their coat.
