    Default Your Daily Bully Regimen

    I'm hoping to pick up some more tips!

    What are some of the things you do daily for your pups? I was looking at frank's slew of products on the table and felt like a crazy person! I never knew I would get so involved with a dog! I knew bulldogs were a high maintenance breed but sometimes I feel like a crazy dog mom Especially when I have friends over and they laugh about me wiping his butt or helping him off the couch!



    frank is in *okay* health right now, better than he's been in months, so our regimen is shorter than usual. I will usually do an overall body check and see how he's doing. then wipe his 4 face wrinkles with a maleceb pad, then dry and powder the 'problem wrinkle' as I call it. the one I can never seem to keep dry! I also wipe the chin after every meal since he's prone to breakouts.


    I do a capful of apple cider vin each day in his water. and dog smog as needed when he's been farting a lot. I use vitacoat plus at night, and just started giving yogurt at night as well so I'm hoping that eliminates the need for the dog smog. I wipe his ears and paws daily with various wipes. wipe the booty after every #2 bathroom break. and we use an ear cleaner once a week since he is prone to ear infections.

    my boyfriend will try to get in a solid couple play sessions and I will do a 20 minute walk.


    oh yeah, can't forget our daily snuggle session!


    hmmmm... WHAT ELSE!! haha

    I wipe Armstrongs butt daily lol well his tail pocket. Its constantly infected and stinks from the yeast. Clean his eyes daily. Thankfully that's it so far. Has been this way since he's been about 1 and hes 4 almost 5 now so super healthy for a Bulldog. And of course snuggle time nightly!! I wake to either myself spooing him or him spooning me. Oh yes he spoons me i have pics to prove it! Lmao
    The love and affection of a Bulldog is a Blessing and one of a kind!

    Being a Crazy Dog Mom isn't so bad....haha
    I do a lot of the same with my gaggle of puppies. I haven't started the Apple Cider Vinegar because they spill their water everywhere constantly, and will jump in the bath tub and drink the drips of water before they will drink it out of their bowl....I've thought of getting them a hamster water thing. Anyway, So, I give my pups a NuVet Plus with breakfast, I've noticed a difference in their coats, ears, shedding, etc. and, as soon as this work rotation from Hell is over, I'm going to go grab some Coconut oil because of this quote from @Vikingirl that i found while researching benefits of fish oil vs coconut oil:
    "COCONUT OIL
    Coconut oil consists of more than 90% saturated fats, with traces of few unsaturated fatty acids, such as monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Most of the saturated fats in coconut oil are Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs). The main component (more than 40%) of MCTs is lauric acid, followed by capric acid, caprylic acid, myristic acid and palmitic. Coconut oil also contains about 2% linoleic acid (polyunsaturated fatty acids) and about 6% oleic acid (monounsaturated fatty acids). Coconut oil is higher in Lauric acid than most foods. The only other abundant source found in nature is breast milk. Lauric acid plays a large role in keeping infants from getting viral, bacterial and protozoal infections.
    In much the same way, coconut oil can help your dog with specific ailments and contribute to overall health. Capric and caprylic acid have similar properties and are best known for their anti-fungal effects.

    I wipe Bella's eyes, as needed. Every few days I use Malacetic in her ears, which hazel in her face wrinkles, and witch hazel in her tail pocket. Lately, I've been cleaning her tail pocket more frequently because I'm worried about gunk getting in there. I brushed her teeth once. I'd like to keep doing that, as I want her to have great oral hygiene. She seemed to like the teeth brushing process, so that's good.

    In her food (Fromm puppy), I add coconut oil. (I've been adding this since I first got her.) I also add fish oil and ACV. That's it.

    We have a the same schedule that starts at the same time everyday at 0530 and ends between 2000 and 2130. Any deviation from the schedule makes the little princess unhappy and that includes a missed butt wiping.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I wiped Brett with Unscented baby wipes too after he does #1 and #2. I always clean his paws too every time he goes and cleans his wrinkles too..luckily no tear stains. Also been giving him fish oil and Ester-C and a teaspoon of yogurt as well. Haven't started on giving him ACV yet. He'll probably won't like it. I stayed with Kirkland Nature's Domain Beef and sweet potatoes since his Breeder started him on that. Although someday I want to do raw diet.

    Oh and also I have a small towel nearby every time he drinks water so I can always wipe his mouth.

    Sounds like you've gotten off to a good start w/your baby...

    Daily I do the daily face wipe w/duoxo pads, and use gold's bond powder or diaper ointment on his bad wrinkles. I only have to butt wipe and ears once a week… but I also use a furminator brush to loosen the undercoat then use a Kong brush to give him a good brushing.
