Do French Bulldogs Need To Be Groomed Regularly?
Owning a a French Bulldog and want to know how often do a French Bulldog need to be groomed or should you bathe a French Bulldog?
According to dog experts, French Bulldogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that need grooming regularly.
Low Maintenance: Routine grooming for the French Bulldog includes regular nail trimming, ear cleaning, brushing to remove excess hair, frequent cleansing of skin folds, and occasional bathing. Their fast-growing nails should be trimmed regularly with a nail clipper or grinder to avoid overgrowth, splitting and cracking. Their bat ears should be checked regularly to avoid a buildup of wax and debris which can result in an infection. Teeth should be brushed regularly.
Why Brush or Groom Your French Bulldog?
Brushing also assists to distribute healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, ensuring a shining coat and helping dirt to slide off the hair. This can also help to decrease the need to bath and therefore lessen the frequency of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your French Bulldog dog are tasks that help to reinforce the positive connection bond between your pet and you. Brushing should be a pleasant and relaxed experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your French Bulldog
Dogs with short coats frequently require less brushing and grooming compared to dogs with medium to long haired coats as these longer coats can get tangles, mats and debris trapped in them more quickly.
Some very short-haired pet dogs may not need standard 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may rather like to try a soft grooming glove to delicately remove loose hair, occasionally.
Canines should be brushed 'as required'. Owners should keep an eye on the condition of their dog's coat, trying to find any tangles/mats or dullness which indicates they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a few minutes to a number of hours a week depending on your type of dog.
