    Shampoo -- I use John Paul Oatmeal (Paul Mitchell for dogs)
    clippers -- I have my guys done at the vet during visits or take them to a local groomer... many her use a dremel too
    brush -- Kong Zoom Groom... I love it!
    flea/tick -- we have used Sentiel and Vectra 3D for many years without any issues

    Hi there! we just moved to Boston but lived in Toronto with our bullie Lola for 4 years (Lola for 4, us for 7). We lived in the annex downtown, and used the animal clinic on mutual street as our vet (Matthew Richardson is great). We made lots of bully friends, and we used to go to this meetup group Toronto English bulldog club. Go find them, they are super super nice and they don't charge money to join the group and they bring water for dogs and humans (unless otherwise stated). Next meetup is July 12 at cherry beach at 10:30am. (don't think i can post the link but Pm me if you cant find them online).

    welcome to EBN. I miss toronto.

    Default First Timer From Toronto









    Woke up early and picked up my little guy today. Been spending the whole day letting him get use to his new home and surroundings. He's been a joy and has handled the big change very well except that he's been sleeping a lot all day.

    Should I let him sleep in his crate overnight so he stays safe? Also, should he be In the same room as is when it's bedtime so he sees us?
    @aprilemari, I will definitely look into the bully meetup when he gets older. Sounds very fun.

    OMG -- he is adorable!! Yes, best place at night is in crate when they are this young. He may cry/whine a bit, but try to ignore so he does not train you to gethim out on command Also, he will need potty runs about every three hours so be sure to get a schedule set up

    Oh Bowser's adorable! We crate trained Stiggy when we first got him too. It worked for a couple of months, until we gave in and let him sleep in our bed.

    We go to a holistic vet up in East York. They're fantastic, but we find that ebn has so many knowledgeable members that a lot of 'issues' can be fixed with some sort of home remedy.

    Also, what shampoo should I get for him and I also need advice on nail clippers and a good de shedding brush. Is a furminator worth it? And what should I do about flea and tick prevention? Sorry for the plethora of questions but I want the best for this guy.

    Hi and Welcome to you and Bowser, he is adorable. It looks like you have a great list of supplies so far, you can also go to the Home Page and click on Bringing Home a New Puppy for more great tips and suggestions.
    we use Petsmarts Brand of Puppy Shampoo, its called Tearless Puppy Shampoo, it smells great, is gentle, and doesn't irritate their eyes. we use the Kong Zoom Groom brush, I like it because its soft, it removes all the loose hairs, and its easy to clean. we tried the Furminator, but they don't really have long hair, and they were afraid of it, so just use the Zoom Groom. We use Revolution fot Flea and Tick prevention, and it also treats and prevents Mange and Heartworm.
