    Sounds like you've got a yeast problem in the wrinkles...or possibly an ear infection.

    Are you cleaning the wrinkles? If so, with what?

    Also, what are you feeding your bully?

    You should give some bath to your dog with some pet shampoo this only can stop your dog from stinking.

    @KMARINO used to have the same problems with her Vegas. I can't recall exactly what she did though to improve them. I think she changed his food and used a special type of shampoo. Hopefully she'll be able to share some insights!

    Vegas at one time to stunk up my whole house, I was on the verge of re-homing him, UNTIL I found this site. This will be a slow process but what a HUGE difference it makes!! 1. What are you feeding him? 2. Do you wash and DRY his wrinkles EVERYDAY? I had to slowly change his food, he is now on Nature's Variety Instinct which is a grain/gluten free dog food, I was feeding him Iams I did wash his face back then but not everyday and did not dry it just a good washing. It must be dried very well so nothing "grows" in there. I also use Desitin (for baby rash) and rub it in his wrinkles, he hates it but it acts like a barrier. I feed him a big tablespoon of yogurt every morning and night to fight the yeast and I use a shampoo from our Vet that is anti fungal anti yeast, you massage it in real good, let it sit for `10 min. then rinse real good. It will not only help with the smell it will help with shedding. let me know what you are feeding and what your facial washing habits are. I have learned so much from this site, Vegas smells 90% better I still battle with his face, BUT my house does not stink.

    I admit that I dont clean his wrinkles everyday. I use baby wipes about 3-4x a week. He is fed Royal Canine (the bully kind) but after reading through the posts I am going to change him up. What is recommended for the everyday wrinkle cleaning? I will also get some desitin. How often do you apply the Desitin? I will get him some yogurt too. I am in the same boat as you were...my whole house smells awful!!

    @Danielle J, You must clean his wrinkles daily to get a hold on this house smell, I am a fanatic about my house and the first thing you smelled when you walked in was him. I wash Vegas's face 6 out of 7 days with his medicated shampoo, baby wipes will work but make sure it is VERY dry after so nothing is moist and can grow. I use Desitin or you can use 100$ pure cornstarch the kind you cook with, make sure it does not get in his eyes, that also will help absorb the stink, about 3x a week. The food change made a HUGE difference with him. NO potato, no gluten, no grain. I only feed him fruits and veggies for snacks.

    What food are you thinking? Again it will be a slow process but so worth it. I am serious, I did not want him because of being fanatical about my house but I knew NO ONE could take care or LOVE him the way I did. Even my furniture smelled because of him. It is amazing and you will be amazed and how better he will smell with the changes and how he will change, remember he is miserable also, it just sounds to much like Vegas, his were all allergies. He is such a different dog now, not miserable, not itching, not smelling.

    I also took Vegas for the last 4 months to the vet for an allergy shot which also helped with the smell and itching.

    I was in the same situation with Bruno...His face stunk like

    I took the suggestions of people on here and switched his food a few times until I settled on Taste of The Wild Pacific. I also bought and Antifungal shampoo that I bathe him with once a week.
    No more stink. Sheds a hell of a lot less. Happy Home

    OMG if you are feeding Royal Canine Bulldog no wonder he stinks. When my bullies tried that I would walk into the room and be overwhelmed with dog smell and GAS!!!!

    I think you would be happy with any of the 5-6 star foods, literally my bullies have pooped in their bed and I cannot even smell it. Weird right??? You can also check out our 5 recommended dog foods too.

    Now for the face. If your baby has yeast, you must kill it. Also check his gum lines for any signs of tartar- this can cause a real stink. Check his folds for any yellow, green, reddish or brown substance. If it smells of rotten fish, you probably have a yeast problem. Especially check in that nose wrinkle. Now on to the tail pocket and ears. Make sure there is not a yeast build up in the tail pocket, as this can get especially nasty. Not all bulldogs have tail pockets, the only way to find out is to stick your finger up underneath the tail and see if there is a 'cave'.

    The ears should show no signs of dirt and wax. When I look into my bullies ears, I will see very minimal wax- if I see any at all. The insides of the ears should not stink.

    It is sometimes hard to rid the face of smells- most dogs have a bad smell in the face. But it certainly does help if it is not rotten smelling!! Jesse, Yuna and Mandy's faces never ever stink. Molly has a deep nose rope and needs to be attended to constantly. Tidus has gooey eyes in the morning and I think it makes him a big fish, plus his saggy jowels don't help either! Basically these things vary by the bulldog, some are more wrinkly and actually all that wrinkley beauty comes with a price. More daily care.

    Everyday is a party when you own a bulldog!

    @Danielle J, I got Vegas's shampoo from our vet it is an antifungal/yeast shampoo. It does smell good and kills all the bad stuff, I did not mean 100$ cornstarch, that I put in the last post LOL, I meant 100%, that you get in the baking isle of the grocery store. the shampoo will also cut down on the shedding.

    As far as food It took me a few to find one that made a difference, Nature's Variety makes two kinds, Instinct is grain/gluten free, this is what works for Vegas, they also make a Prairie that does contain grains, it just depends on allergies or not. Fromms is another excellent one. I had to do a google to see who even carried these foods, our local Petsmart does not. You might have to google.
