Bulldog Grooming Tips: 5 Ways To Have Your Dog Looking Fabulous

Sticking to a regular grooming routine is important even for low-maintenance breeds like bulldogs. Even though bulldogs have short hair, their fur can get matted and lumpy if not attended to. Plus, there are other parts of their body which need your regular attention. We’ve created a list of five bulldog grooming tips to inspire your daily routine with your pet.

How To Groom Your Bulldog

These bulldog grooming tips don’t just apply to their coats and skin. Head-to-toe dog grooming involves paying attention to their faces, eyes, nails, and teeth as well. Though bulldogs are a relatively low-maintenance breed and don’t need haircuts, you should not take their ease of care for granted. Here are five great tips for bulldog grooming.

1. Brush Every Day

Take your bulldog outside, if you can, for a short brushing session every day. Daily brushing will prevent matted fur. Use a brush or comb which will let you be gentle, since bulldogs are known for having sensitive skin.

2. Bathe As Needed

Bulldogs only really need baths when they’re visibly dirty or start to smell. Bathing too often can strip your dog’s hair and skin of its natural oils, causing more problems.

3. Pay Attention To Their Face

As a breed, bulldogs have naturally wrinkly faces. Wiping in their wrinkles every day can rid them of dirt, bacteria, and eye discharge buildup. Use a cotton swab and a gentle cleaning agent. This skin is especially sensitive, so make sure to be careful.

4. Wipe Tear Stains

Tear stains are a common problem with bulldogs. Thankfully, they’re easily wiped away with a damp washcloth every few weeks or so. If you’re seeing them frequently, it may be time for a vet visit to check your dog’s eyes.

5. Take Care Of Their Nails

Once your bulldog starts to bite its nails, it’s time for a trim. If you don’t feel comfortable trimming or grinding their nails, ask a professional groomer to do it for you. Make sure to avoid the quick, or the vein in your dog’s nails. The quick is easier to see in white nails than black ones. If you accidentally hit the quick, put flour or styptic powder on the nail.
