French Bulldog Breed Maintenance
The French Bulldog's coat is easy to maintain with minimal brushing. Brushing your Frenchie once a week is sufficient to keep her clean and well groomed. Bathing and shampooing should be avoided, if possible, due to this breed's increased chance of developing dermatitis. Excessive bathing will strip the French Bulldog of much-needed oils that keep her skin healthy. The Frenchie can have loose and wrinkled skin, especially on its face, and should be checked for dirt and debris to prevent infections. Unfortunately, French Bulldogs are more prone to tooth and mouth disease, so it is recommended that you brush your Frenchie's teeth at least three times a week and annual dental hygiene visits are highly recommended. You should only use approved tools and cleaning agents recommended by your veterinarian or canine dental hygienist and consult with them to learn the best method of cleaning your dog's teeth. The French Bulldog is docile and well suited for apartment and urban living. This breed is quiet and not very active. The Frenchie doesn't tolerate too hot or too cold of climates and allergies can be a problem for this breed, so indoor living is preferred. The French Bulldog is a small dog that requires 1 to 1.5 cups of food divided into two meals, daily. How much you feed your dog will depend on your Frenchie's age and metabolism. This breed is not very active and is small, so overfeeding can easily occur.
