    I am also a first time bulldog owner and mine will be a year this month. See what I posted in http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...tml#post649378 for what I have learned and would recommend.

    Here is another post of name ideas English Bulldog News Forums - Great Female English Bulldog Names

    Good luck with her, she's a cutie.

    I am bias to Mia..... second choice would be Ladybird

    Shampoo.... I use John Paul by Paul Mitchell, 6 bucks at TJ Maxx But, I only bath my guys maybe twice a year or when they get into something the should not.
    Harness... at this age, just get something that is good, but not too expensive. The one that many on this forum love is the K9 Julius, but you might want to wait till she is about 10 months or so to get it
    Toys..... Kong, Nylabone, deer/elk/moose antlers and raw marrow bones are great for them. NO, no ,no rawhide or bully sticks.... both are choking hazzards

    I used the Puppia harness until he was too big for it. It expands so it is good for puppies. I think I got the large. As a tiny puppy don't worry about a harness because they will just follow you around and not really go for walks yet.

    I bought the Kong puppy toys. Stuffies were quickly nixed because he chews through them. Water bottles are always great throw away toys. I got him soft toys as a puppy and when he had gotten his adult teeth I switched to firmer toys. The Planet Dog toys have lasted me a while and may be ok for puppy teeth.

    I recommend buying a toy you can freeze for the teething stage.
