    Matilda goes to the groomers about once a month. Her groomer is just WONDERFUL - I'm never able to get her as clean and white as they do! She GLOWS when she comes back from them. They also let her run around the store and give her treaties... she never wants to leave. I have to bribe her back to the car with me. I'm also scared to clip her nails myself (hah) so she gets those trimmed as needed - usually every 2 weeks. I like to take her in and get them grinded down so they're smooth!

    Here is our routine:

    Daily: We use an antiseptic concoction her vet makes (the line is called Vet4Bulldogs) to clean the tail pocket and any skin irritations (Tilly is very sensitive to grass, so I usually wipe down her tummy with it to prevent a rash). Then, we use baby wipes to clean lady bits, paws, and face wrinkles. We finish up by putting Vaseline in the face wrinkles and squirting a teeth cleaner in her mouth. It is also from Vet4Bulldogs. You just squirt it in on either side of her mouth near her back teeth, and Til's smile is perfect We also use the Kong ZoomGroom to brush her out - as she sheds like CRAZY right now. I'm thinking of picking up a FURminator.

    Weekly: We get a full bath, using Bobbi Panter Baby Bebe shampoo (it smells wonderful and you don't need a lot!). Matilda LOVES the bath, and has several bath toys that float - including a rubber ducky. So she plays while we scrub her - it makes it so much easier. The best investment for bath time though is the detachable shower head. It takes two seconds to soap her up and rinse her off! We also clean her ears with a V4B ear cleaner. You just pour some on a cotton ball and squish it in there. Matilda HATES it, but what can you do? We clean between her toes, tail pocket, lady bits, wrinkles, all in the bath, and finish up with Vaseline in her face wrinkles and her teeth cleaner. Then all done and yummy treats for being a GOOD GURL.

    As you can see by the picture I have a whole SPA treatment for my babies ... They get their daily fold, tail pocket, overall body wipe down and then once a week they get their SPA DAY I use the Tomlyn Pearls Au Lait Milk Bath Shampoo, Southbark Blueberry Facial & Kelco Ultra Silk Conditioner to give them their bath and condition (those 3 products are a doggie staple in my home).
    I suffer from "M.B.S." (Multiple Bulldog Syndrome)
    because one bulldog is NEVER enough!!

    I wash Usko when needed and that means usually maybe twice a year...We have what we call a dayspa every week when we use dremmel on his nails, clean ears, put eye drops, clean in between the toes and put cream on his paws. Facial folds, under the tail and privats are cleaned 2-3 times a week or if needed more often. I should brush him more often, but bc I'm raw feeding him he hardly sheds at all.
