Temperament and Personality
The Bogle is a very playful, energetic, alert, loyal and excited dog which is inherited from its parents. Their personality is borrowed from the parents, for example, the Boxer side makes them a little wary of strangers. They are even gentle, calm and amiable and have a cheerful disposition. These dogs can amuse people with their funny nature coupled with confidence and dignity. They can be aggressive if disturbed during their sleep and eating time. They can mingle easily with other pets if taught at an early age.
They belong to a large breed of dogs, but it does not require much activity. 30-40 minutes of daily walking and jogging is an excellent way to lose out its excess energy. However, they like staying indoors with short outdoor tours. Playing games like agility, flyball, dock jumping can also stimulate its body and mind.
Minimal grooming can keep this breed away from infections and other complications. Brushing 2-3 times a week can lessen dead hairs and bathe them only when their coats appear to be dirty and stinky. As they are prone to ear infection, it is essential to clean twice or thrice a week. Clean the teeth and trim its nails as and when required.
They do not have any personal health issues but can inherit some from its parents. Like other designer dogs, it can face problems such as eye infection, hip dysplasia, patellar luxation, hypothyroidism, cardiovascular disorders and gastric issues.
The pups are easy to train but the trainer should be firm and consistent while offering regular reward treats. In the initial stage, introduce the pet to play with kids and other pets to avoid aggressiveness later on. Home training is necessary to learn the basic etiquettes and good habits.
The dog requires a significant amount of food to remain fit throughout the day. However, offer 2-3 cups of high-quality proper diet with at least 25% of protein a day divided into two or more meals. Their food should also include a proper quantity of fish, meat, egg, carrots and pumpkin. For slow-burning carbohydrates, offer sweet potatoes and brown rice.
