    Duds has had two baths in 18 months, he's not a big fan the way he carry's on you would think we were bathing him in acid!! not tepid water and baby shampoo!

    Ive been giving Chapo a bath 1-2 times a week. Bulldogs start to smell fairly quick. I was actually trying to research strong products i can use to remove the deep dog smell. Some say Cinnamon spray.

    might be the food you are feeding does not agree with him.... bathing that often will strip his fur of natural oils and cause dry skin

    How do you manage 3-4 year? Do you do a daily hygiene routine? Just curious!

    Not sure bathing 2x week is good for them. Strong smell could be a symptom of another issue.

    Raw food keeps their coat almost self cleaning. There is natural oils in dogs coats that really do that if let to do their job and if their nutrition is something that promotes it, like raw is. Once my Usko brushed himself against the car and got his side all black and dirty. I was too busy to wash him right away, so I just brushed it clean as much as I could, but still stere was a gray spot on his side. Being too busy for a few days and not washing him I noticed the dirty spot just going away by itself and it didn't even feal dirty! I of course washed in him eventually... Then once I experimented with his food and cooked him some millets and quinoa with his raw meat, that made his coat feel sticky and dirty. When I quit giving him those it cleared up in few days. I you wash your bully too often the natural oils are gone and stay gone and then you really have to wash them often.

    You can come and smell my bullies any time and they don't smell at all.

    I might of over exaggerated with the deep dog smell. Its actually not too bad but I guess im trying to keep him smellin fresh all the time. I have a light weight Ocd problem with dog Hygiene. I will cut down on his bath.

    Great to know! It makes sense why raw food would promote a natural balance. Thanks for explaining!

    Pippy and Lala can go 6 weeks as long as they don't do a bunch of digging(Pippy) and playing chewy face(Lala). Zoey has a super greasy coat and can go no more than 3 weeks between baths.

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind

    Since our bully is an inside pet, we bathe him once a week or every two weeks. It depends really. He has really bad allergies, so during allergy season, he always gets a weekly bath. Non allergy season, we try to stretch it out to once every two weeks. Our vet had mentioned before that you really shouldn't bathe them once a week because it isn't good for them, but we feel comfortable with our routine and it's worked well for us for 2+ years.

    We do it once every two weeks. That is what everyone told us and it is ideal for us. If he gets too dirty, we may do it when we feel like it but we mostly stick to the twice a month schedule.

    Wow once and even twice a week is alot. You'll lose the natural oils in your dog's skin. Read some recipes in the link attached. Will guide you for maintenance.
