    Default Bath time

    How often should we bath him and what's the best shampoo please? Also what's the best way to dry around his tail, could we use a hair dryer on low setting? Thanks

    We don't bath ours very much, and I would say no more than twice a month. You bath them too often, and it can dry out their shin. There are many good shampoos out there, and I'm certainly no expert on it, so hopefully someone who baths their bullies more than us will chime in. You can also use a blow dryer if your bully will allow it. Mine would be scared of it and BeBe would want to eat it. LOL

    Agree ^^^^ I use John Paul dog shampoo at this time, but my pups get a bath maybe twice a year unless they get into something.

    We have to bathe ours twice a month minimum. We use Trizchlor 4, Duoxo, or an oatmeal and lavender shampoo.

    we use a tea tree oil shampoo but also have used hertz puppy shampoo. We bathe lola about 3-4 times a year. Her screw-tail pocket I dry with a bath towel, let her run loose for an hour and come back with a soft paper towel to dry inside the pocket again. I just hold the towel and paper towel there to soak up any remaining water. If you want you can go back in/around with witch hazel or douxo - something that is astringent like and will dry out on its own.

    I use a shampoo from 1-800-Pet-Meds called Be Super Clean.

    "Be Super Clean Shampoo is a veterinary strength anti-microbial shampoo that deeply cleans your pet's skin by killing the bacterial, fungal and yeast microorganisms that cause bad odor. Be Super Clean Shampoo is soothing and safe enough for sensitive pets and comes in a fresh cucumber and melon scent"
    Be Super Clean Shampoo - Antibacterial Shampoo for Pets - 1800PetMeds

    I love it, it keeps her fresh smelling and helps prevent any yeast infections We bath Effie about every 3 weeks or once a month
