    I brush them with the zoom groom at least once a week and I wipe their paws with baby wipes or damp cloth

    The one and only time I had Petsmart clean Vegas's ears out while getting his nails dremeled he got an ear infection. I cant use them to bathe Vegas because he is on a special shampoo Pharmaseb, and they will only use their own products.

    Walley-Bubba, the English Bulldog, gets his nails trimmed and buffed at PetCo for $15.
    He got bathed and a nail trim/buff there last month for around $40.
    The groomer who does the work is both a dog lover and an SRT-4 lover also.
    And he doesn't believe in bowing a Bullie which is fine with me.

    Ann takes Shadow, the Yorkie, to PetCo as well and he does fine also.
    And yes, he is cute so he gets bowed

    I guess it all depends on who you get to do the work?

    WB and Shadow both go to PetSmart for Banfield vet work (top notch so far).
    But neither for any grooming because they are always so busy.
    We go to PetCo for that.

    Finally, in the interests of equal time (for us) PetFoodExpress had the best deal on Antlers (larger and cheaper).

    We have a do-it-yourself bathing place that is awesome! It has a tub up at waist high, and a ramp to walk the dog up to it, so you don't have to do any lifting. You can either bring your own bathing products, or they provide them (included in the price of the wash). They have good stuff too, which we use the oatmeal shampoo. They also provide all the towels, wash cloths, and even have a blower to use after. The cost is only $17 here and it is a huge back saver (no more bending over in the tub at home) Maybe there's one in your area?

    I was going to mention the local do-it-yourself dog wash too. The ramps are a big help for those who have larger pooches.

    I have used Petco in the past and they do a good job, but the same girl works with Pickle every time. She is very consistant and Pickle loves going to see her. But Pickle stays pretty clean due to her being inside so much but I bathe her every three/four weeks.

    I use a wash cloth or baby wipes everyday to keep her "lady parts" and her face wrinkles clean. When I bathe her I use the shower stall with a sprayer and I use J&J Baby Shampoo. I avoid her face and head with the sprayer but use a wash cloth to do that part of the job. I have been thinking of switching to a different shampoo when this bottle runs out tho.

    hey!! ive always given hogan baths at home. i dont see a point in wasting money on that stuff when you can have one on one time with your dog...plus its so cute haha. i was recommended by my vet to use oatmeal free shampoo since english bulldog are prone to getting yeast infections. we were using just a generic brand from petsmart but will be switching since he now has a yeast infection in his paw and tail. we also do not use cotton balls in the ears. it is perfectly fine to wash their face, just make sure that you completely fry their face and ears so they do not get a cold =) enjoy hehe

    I can't shower him by myself he's so strong and I can barely carry him into the tub. But I have done it. I get bad back ache after I shower him. I need to look into all the do it yourself doggy bath places.
