It is essential that your French bulldog be groomed on a regular basis in order to ensure that they continue to enjoy good health. Grooming is also a wonderful way to interact with your pet, and if your dog is trained to anticipate and enjoy the experience from an early age, it will be something that your dog looks forward to. Because Frenchies have short coats, the process of grooming them is simpler than it is for many other long-coated breed types. However, even a few minutes every day dedicated to the task of grooming will assist to guarantee that your pet continues to enjoy good health.
Basic brushing Brushing the coat of your frenchie will help to remove dead hairs and skin, which could otherwise cause your pet to scratch. It will also help to smooth out the natural oils in their coat and this prevents odours. It is one of the most essential yet simple parts to grooming your pet; there are a variety of brushes and combs available at most pet stores which are suitable for your frenchie. As the French bulldog has a smooth short coat a weekly brush might be all that’s needed to keep their coat in great condition.
Caring for the ears
The ears have to be kept clean to avoid getting infections, on a daily basis check the ears looking inside them, make sure they are a healthy pink colour and if all looks fine then gently swab the inner ear with a damp cotton bud. If you notice any symptoms such as a foul-smelling odour or discharge then seek the advice of your vet, never push cotton buds deep into the ear canal.
Take care of the teeth
Dental care is as essential for your dog as it is for you; always check the teeth as part of the grooming process, poor dental hygiene can lead to bad breath from tooth decay and gum infection.
The feet and nails
Check the condition of your dog’s feet on a daily basis paying particular attention to the pads on the bottom of the feet, make sure they are clean and nothing is stuck on the pads. Nails will also have to be trimmed on a regular basis as these grow just the same as in humans, depending on if your dog spends a lot of time on concrete nails will have to be trimmed less regularly as the concrete will help to wear them down. Never cut the nails too deeply as you can cut into the quick and cause them to bleed. Special nail clippers designed for dogs can be bought easily form most good pet stores.
Check your dogs eyes on a regular basis to make sure they are clean and not weeping, if there is any matter in the corner of the eye gently clean it using a damp cotton bud, if the weeping persists this could be a sing of an infection and the vets advice should be sought.
About once a month you should give your pet a through clean in the tub, if you have followed this procedure from an early age then hopefully your dog wont put up too much of a fuss. Special dog shampoo can be obtained from the pet store or vets with which to wash your dogs coat, avoid getting soap into the ear canal and eyes of course.
😍 These gadgets are on my Frenchie’s wishlist, maybe your Frenchie needs them too? 🥰
✅ We laughed so hard we had tears rolling down our cheeks. Watch funny clips HERE
✅ My Frenchie has been self-conscious about his hair for years. He finally has the confidence to go on walks now. Other dogs don’t even know it’s a wig! What a steal!! LOL
✅ These matching sweaters are absolutely adorable. Fits my 22lb French bulldog like a glove, his shirt is super soft.
✅ Lots of folks said it was the cutest thing they had seen in a long time! It came with adjustable straps just in case the Frenchie gains weight (again.)
✅ Safety first, right? My Frenchie loves bike rides in the backpack but not so much in the rain, this Goggle/Hemlet set really helps keep the rain out of the eyes and ears.
✅ Omg too cute😍 I do not need to explain why your Frenchie needs it right?
✅ The hoodie is really well made and super soft fleece-lined! My Frenchie has been in it for hours, which is not common… safe to say it is puppy approved!
✅ You only need this one high-quality water-resistant jacket for Winter. Necessary piece. Make sure you check out the reviews to get the right size instead of keeping returning.
✅ There are built-in ear holes for comfort, which is how my Frenchie usually wears it, but sometimes we just have to keep those ears covered up and keep the heat in on the super-cold days.
✅ This playpen is a life saver! They can be linked together if desired to create a larger pen.
✅ No animal should have to sleep on the floor and hurt or be cold. I asked my Frenchie for a review – unfortunately he’s too busy snoring, farting and sleeping on it to answer me…lol
✅ This is a fantastic car seat w lots of clever features. The entire seat can collapse to fit into its own carrying bag, though it’s easily put together again in 30 sec. The cover that the dogs rest on is silky soft faux fur which doesn’t seem to snag dirt and debris. It easily zips out for washing, and during the summer you can reverse the cover so the canvas side is up and not the fur. The pillow that boosts the dogs up in the seat has a soft foam side akin to memory foam. It’s very roomy and well made for a small Frenchie.
✅ The couch is stylish and lightweight but definitely sturdy. As an added bonus the legs have non-skid pads on the bottom so it won’t slide when he gets in and out of it. Holding up pretty good even when Frenchie digs in it…
✅ Let me do you a favor and let you know that you NEED this NOW!!! It was very comfortable for me at this height. No pain or awkward positions and I didn’t get soaked.
✅ I don’t remember seeing any other pet strollers using this kind of high-end wheels. Perfect for the small puppy that is old or can’t walk much.
