Bull Terrier Characteristics

Originally developed in the 1800s as a fighting dog, the Bull Terrier is now commonly known as a loving family companion and show dog. Despite their size, these dogs have a lot of energy and require frequent exercise to prevent bad behavior. If you can meet his exercise needs, the Bull Terrier may be the right dog for you.

Known for its unique egg-shaped head, the Bull Terrier is distinct from any other dog breed. Though they were once known as fighters, we know today that these dogs are full of love and want to please their humans more than anything. Especially playful with children, these dogs have a unique and charming personality that makes them a hit at family gatherings.
 
Standing around 21-22 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 35-75 pounds, the Bull Terrier can be a medium-large dog. Like most terriers, Bull Terriers are territorial and can act out aggressively with other animals, and especially with other dogs. You’ll see this most with the unneutered males. Early socialization will ensure they are well behaved around other dogs.  Positive, supervised visits with other dogs at a young age will be crucial towards the development of your Bull Terrier. Cats and other small animals should be vigilant around the Bull Terrier.
 
The black, white, or blue coat of the Bull Terrier requires very little grooming; just the occasional brushing and wipe-down with a damp cloth will suffice most of the time. Ownership of these dogs is restricted or banned in some cities, so be sure to check with your insurance company if you will remain covered while owning a Bull Terrier.
 

How dog-friendly is Connecticut?

Connecticut has always been a good place for dogs, but the state has given even more effort recently to create a welcoming environment for pet-owners and dog-lovers. 


Pawsafe, a trusted source for dog safety ratings, ranked Connecticut 21st for pet friendliness. They also placed Connecticut fifth for the number of pet services available throughout the state and 11th best for pet-friendly accommodations. 


In recent years, Connecticut has increased the number of pet-friendly hotels, restaurants, and other establishments. If you want to bring your pet with you when you travel, you won’t have trouble finding a place to stay overnight or to dine out.

Pet-friendly rentals in Connecticut

A similar study from Safewise gave Connecticut a less glowing review. They graded the state 39th for pet-friendliness. One of the main reasons they rated the state this low is the relatively low percentage of pet-friendly rentals at just 9%. That’s very low compared to other states.


Additionally, only 24% of Connecticut residents own a dog, which is far below the national average of 40%. In fact, it’s second to last for dog ownership in the United States. In contrast, the state’s total pet ownership percentage is well above the national average with 50% of Connecticut families owning a pet. Maybe Connecticut is more of a cat person? 

A few more pet-friendly statistics in Connecticut

According to the American Kennel Club (AKC) the most popular dogs in the state are large, active, family-friendly breeds: German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, and Labrador Retrievers. Hartford’s most popular dog breeds include Huskies, Labradoodles, and Goldendoodles. Clearly Connecticut loves a companion for the whole family.


Connecticut has 1.4 dog parks per 100,000 residents. There are also many laws and statutes to create a pet-friendly environment. The state doesn't mandate that dogs remain on a leash at all times, as long as you don’t let your dog wander onto another person’s property.
