    Im sure just like humans, it varies from bully to bully. We bathe Princess Gracie every two to three weeks. She doesn't stink per se but by the time we give her a bath you can tell she needs one.. LOL.

    I bathe Vegas every two weeks, but I wash his face about every 3 days. His body starts to smelling at about the two week mark, his face is a different story, with all his allergies and tear stains his face stinks more often.

    Frank gets one about once a month, but by the time I get him in the bath, it is definitely needed. In the meantime, I clean his face wrinkles every other day and his tail pocket about once a week. Also, he gets the occasional wipedown with a baby wipe between bathings because sometimes he pees on his foot or he pees on a leaf and it bounces back onto him. Sigh.

    Schultz will have a bath every 2 weeks ....with the whole bubble bath experience...but he get's the washcloth bath every day, maybe 2x a day...he's so low to the ground and loves dirt that he gets filthy outside....and his face gets cleaned after every meal, just water on a wash cloth.... Plus I may have a bit of OCD....haha....we won't blame that on the bully

    Wilson gets a bath every week. I think Wilsons allergies make his coat kind of greasy feeling and he usually has little scabs so they usually come off with a dog brush that's for bathing. Wilson gets the most "detailing." His face I have to do daily. BabyGirl every two weeks but mostly to wash her tail pocket more thoroughly. Her lady parts daily. Her face only as needed. Wilson gets dandruff shampoo followed by a second wash of baby shampoo then Avoderm Natural coat conditioner or Cloud Star's Buddy rinse conditioner. BabyGirl gets perfect coat natural oatmeal shampoo and same conditioner as Wilson.

    Being a puppy, right now Raven gets a bath once a week, sometimes a three times a week depending on what she has been up to once we leave her in her crate. I wash her face and lady bits every night, and tend to wipe her bottom after every poop since sometimes she has a little bit of debris sitting around. Hopefully when all is said and done and her potty training is done, we can get down to a weekly bath with just daily face and girly bits getting wiped down.

    We usually bathe Lola weekly, but missed last weekend and it was fine, so we will probably be bathing less frequently. It will be great to only have to bathe her every other week...it's a wrestling match sometimes Her face, I wipe down a couple times a week, as it also gets stinky pretty quick. Her lady parts also a couple times a week.

    Who closed the door .... ? we're not finished yet........ ....
    .



    I bathe Jack every Sunday just before church....
    He nor I go to church .. I just mentioned it for a point of time of day reference......


    Bullys are constantly smelling everything and with their stub nose they need to really get it deep into whatever they're smelling... So needless to say, a daily wipe down of their face is highly recommended...
