Over time, there have been many changes in how we raise our American Bulldog breeds. One thing that has been changing is the dog’s ears. It is now more common for us to trim or remove the bully’s ears altogether.
While this is an improvement in some ways, it comes with its own problems! Take a look at this article for tips on how to prevent and handle these issues!
Crocheting is a great way to keep your American Bulldog entertained and mentally stimulated. You can make toys, blankets, scarves, and even clothes for them! This guide will show you how to crochet an American Bulldog toy.
What is an American Bulldog?
The American Bulldog is a gentle giant of a dog bred in the United States. He is known for his large head, sturdy body and soft fur. Bulldogs are intelligent and adaptable animals and make great family pets.
Why Do Bully Breeds Have Cropped Ears?
Bullies have cropped ears because they were bred to intimidate their prey. The short, wide ear flap prevents wind resistance and makes the Bulldog more sensitive to changes in air pressure. This trait is also seen in other breeds bred for fighting, such as the Rottweiler and Boxer.
How to Crochet Your American Bulldog
Crocheting your American Bulldog can be fun and provide hours of enjoyment. You’ll need basic crochet stitches and materials, and following these simple steps will have you crocheting like a pro in no time.
To start, make a chain sufficiently long to fit the overall length of your dog’s body. Once you have made your chain, join it to form a loop by inserting the hook into the top left corner of the chain and pulling up a loop (you now have one-half of your foundation chain). Chain 1, make another loop, and then do this across the entire foundation chain (see video below for help).
Next, work two single crochets into each of the Foundation Chains loops (see video below for help), then turn your work so that it is facing away from you. This is where things get tricky – you need to start working into the top loops only (the ones closest to you).
To do this, insert your hook into the top leftmost loop only, yarn over and pull up a loop (this makes an “L”). Yarn over again and put your hook into the next top loop, YO and pull up another “L” (3 L’s in total).
Now put your hook back into the first “L” from before, yarn over and pull through both loops on the hook – this completes the first stitch. Do this again in the following top loop only and continue doing this until all stitches are.
