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

Creating a successful grooming routine is an essential part of dog ownership. French bulldogs, with their short coats, are a lower-maintenance breed when it comes to bathing and brushing. Other aspects of their care, however, are a different story. We’ve crafted a list of five French bulldog grooming tips to help you keep your dog looking fabulous.

Grooming Your French Bulldog

Dog grooming is more than caring for their fur, or making sure shed hair doesn’t get all over your house. A French bulldog will need additional attention to their teeth, faces, eyes, ears, and nails. Luckily, a few routine actions at different times throughout the month will help you keep a solid grooming routine going. Below are five French bulldog grooming tips to keep your Frenchie looking good from head to tail.

1. Brush Every Week

With their short coats, French bulldogs have very easy grooming needs. Brushing them once every week will help loosen shedding hair and spread natural oils throughout their coats and skin. Use a gentle rubber brush or grooming mitt to prevent skin irritation from over-brushing.

2. Bathe Every Month

French bulldogs do not need frequent bathing. Giving a bath too often may result in issues with dry, irritated skin. They really only need baths when they get stinky, around every month or so. Use a high-quality neutral-pH dog shampoo. If your dog has an allergic reaction, consider switching shampoos.

3. Check Their Ears

French bulldogs have narrow ear canals, which can lead to wax overproduction and chronic ear infections. Make sure to check inside their ears regularly. Clean any wax buildup with an ear cleaning solution meant for dogs and cotton balls or swabs. If not addressed, ear infections in your French bulldog may result in a painful burst eardrum.

4. Clean Their Face Wrinkles

A French bulldog‘s scrunched up, wrinkly face is one of its signature features. Unfortunately, those wrinkles make great breeding grounds for bacteria, especially in hot, humid weather. Wipe their face wrinkles with special wipes every day, drying them completely.

5. Brush Their Teeth

Because of their jaws’ unique shape, many French bulldogs suffer from dental issues. Regularly brushing your dog’s teeth, at minimum 3 times weekly, will help curb periodontal disease and other tooth issues. Use a specially-made dog toothbrush and a toothpaste in a yummy dog-friendly flavor like chicken or seafood.
