Bulldog Breed Maintenance
The Bulldog is very easy to maintain and keep with their short soft hair only requiring a firm bristle brush once a week and a face wipe with a damp cloth every day. It is important to wipe in the folds of their skin though, to remove debris and check that there is no inflammation, sores, or parasites lurking. Make sure you dry these fold after the wash. Other grooming needs are nail care and dental hygiene; get them used to this at an early age so that they enjoy it. Also, check their ears and wipe them out carefully, removing dirt and wax with a cloth, and never poke anything in the ear canal. They are inactive indoors, ideal for apartments, and have a low to moderate energy level. They do need a good walk each day to help them to stay in shape and keep fit, as they love food and can put on weight easily. Because of their pushed in faces, the Bulldog doesn’t do well in the extreme heat or cold, for that matter, they need air conditioning in hot weather as even 30 minutes outdoors in 85-degree temperatures can be fatal for them. They need plenty of water to drink and will love a shallow child’s play pool to cool off in, but because of their massive heads, they are not good swimmers so protect them from your swimming pool as they can drown easily.
