A: Boerboels are a unique ,they are athletic, active and need plenty of exercise. If they have a large yard to run and play ball, great but if not they need at least one long daily walk.
A: This depends on; 1. How much exercise does your boerboel get? 2. What type of diet are you feeding your boerboel? 3. Boerboels size and age can also play a factor. We feed all of our adults and puppy Boerboels "Royal Canin & Jock " which is a great all stages food.
A: Boerboels are fairly easy to groom. Bathe occasionally or if they get into something stinky! Boerboels are average shedders. Main things to remember are regular ear cleanings (especially if they are around dirt/dust) and having their nails clipped regularly

A: No we don't remove dew claws. ( On request yes for additional fee) Yes we do micro-chip your puppy for no additional fee.

A: We recommend early puppy training, followed by a basic obedience course. It is important to what is acceptable and what is not when they are young (8-16 weeks). Boerboels are an eager to please. However they are also incredibly strong and can be strong willed so training is important. You don't wants to have a 100+ Kg dog that is not under control.
