French Bulldog Breed Maintenance
The coat of this compact dog is easy to maintain with minimal brushing. Brushing your Frenchie once a week is sufficient to keep them 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 much-needed oils that keep the skin healthy. The French Bulldog can have loose and wrinkled skin, especially on their face, and should be checked for dirt and debris to prevent infections. Unfortunately, they are prone to tooth and mouth disease, so it is recommended that you brush their 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. This serene dog is docile and well suited for apartment and urban living and they are 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. 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 friendly companion's age and metabolism. This breed is not very active and is small, so overfeeding can easily occur.
