Resisting the cute, wrinkly face of an English Bulldog puppy is nearly impossible. And that may be why you have one running around your house as you read this. But there are tricks to keeping those cute wrinkles clean and your English Bulldog puppy healthy and happy!
English Bulldog puppiesrequire very little grooming because of their short coat. That doesn’t mean that baths should be a rare occurrence. Baths should be given to your English Bulldog puppy when he is need of one and you can clean the wrinkles while in the tub! Simply wet down your pup as you normally would and soap him up. After he is lathered, get a damp cloth without soap. Wipe between each wrinkle thoroughly to remove any dirt, grime or dampness that may be hiding. Now rinse your pup as usual. When you have completely dried him, apply a small amount of corn starch or baby powder between the wrinkles. This will help to keep out dampness which can breed bacteria and infections.
Be sure not to miss the wrinkles on the face of your English Bulldog puppy. There could be left over food, irritants and allergens from sniffing the grass outside which all can easily cause infections. It may be easier to use a cotton ball or Q-Tip on your puppy’s face until he gets used to the cleaning routine. Do not apply corn starch or baby powder close to his mouth or where he can lick. Ingesting too much could upset his stomach.
Although maintenance is very low for English Bulldog puppies, you must understand the dangers that lie beneath the wrinkles if not taken care of properly. Clean wrinkles make an even cuter English Bulldog puppy for all to kiss, cuddle and love!
