We all know that owning a dog is one of the best things in the World, however, finding their hair everywhere in the house might be the worst thing. When we talk about the French bulldog shedding circle, the good news is that they don’t shed much.
The frequency of dogs’ shedding depends on their health, breed, and season. Since during summer, most dogs don’t need thick coats to keep them warm, dog owners should expect to find their hair on furniture, clothes, and in cars as well.
What do you need to know about the French bulldog coat?
Frenchies are famous for their short, shiny and smooth coats. They should present the mirrors of their overall health and tell a lot about the care they get. French bulldog coats usually shed twice a year- in spring and fall.
On the other hand, these gorgeous dogs are also known for their sensitive skin that requires special care. Since it can become dry and flaky, I advise you to include a simple Coconut oil to your furry friend’s cosmetics. You can use it to soothe your Frenchie’s nose, paws, and even his dry skin.
In order to escape using soaps and shampoos for bathing, I suggest you trying the Frenchie World® Oil Extracted bathing salt. It’s made especially to suit their sensitive skin and eyes and is available in 3 fragrances – milk, grape, and bamboo.
When choosing cosmetics for your French bulldog, you need to pay special attention to the ingredients. Do not ever try to use a human type of shampoo or soap because they have different ph balance. The best way is to stick to natural and hypoallergenic dog shampoos that are rich in different oils such as almond oil, olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil, and shea butter.
The following French Bulldog Professional Shampoo Brush presents a great choice for bathing a Frenchie’s coat. You can add a few drops of shampoo and fill it with water, shake, and start bathing your batpig.
How to best prevent your French bulldog shedding?
We all know that it’s impossible to keep a house free of dog’s hair. However, there are ways to keep the French bulldog shedding under control and make it less ‘hairy’.
Don’t forget on regular grooming
Grooming a dog’s coat presents one of the most important rules when owning a dog. For keeping your Frenchie’s coat free of dull and dead hair, I advise you to to perform it once a week. If you’re not sure what type of brush to use, you’ll never make a mistake by choosing a brush glove.
A brush glove is softer than grooming brushes that sometimes can make additional damage to a short and sensitive Frenchie’s coat. Check out the following glove that is great for reaching all parts of a dog’s body.
Protect your Furniture
If you’re the type of owner who allows a dog to freely sits and rolls wherever he/she wants, then this Frenchie World® Breathable Furniture Mat could be one of the solutions. It can be a great way to keep your Frenchie’s body smell and hair out of the sofa. It’s definitely easier to wash a mat then a sofa, right?
Dry your Frenchie’s fur after bathing
Well, one thing is for sure. You don’t need to use a hairdryer to dry your gremlin’s coat. On the other hand, leaving your pooch with wet hair can lead to rapid loss of body temperature and catching a cold. That’s why you need to absorb the water from his fur by using a fast absorbing towel. Frenchie World® Super absorbent microfiber towel helps quickly dry your pet. It’s perfect for dog baths, muddy paws, and slobbery jaws.
Wear clothes in case of allergy
Unfortunately, the French bulldog breed is known for its tendency to develop food and environmental types of allergy. In case your pooch tends to show an allergy to dust, different house chemical, pollen, and dirt, I advise you to dress him or her in sort of dog pajamas or onesies. They will much prevent your furry friend from itching his/her skin and will prevent the shedding too.
Provide a Frenchie with a very own bed
Every dog needs to have his/her own bed that will present its special and safe place in the house. By teaching your pooch to use a dog bed for resting, chilling and sleeping, your living place will definitely become hair free. Frenchie World® Sofa Bed is great for cozy sleeping with elevated edges, while a self-cooling mat presents ‘a must’ for preventing a Frenchie from overheating in summer.
Choose the right nutrition
In case you haven’t heard for this fact, choosing the right nutrition can actually prevent your French bulldog shedding a lot. The diet affects the health of your dog’s skin and coat, so you’d better choose wisely.
As a French bulldog breeder, I highly advise you to choose the BARF diet for feeding your furry gremlin. It includes choosing fresh veggies and fruits and raw meat for your dog’s menu. Here you can read about the benefits that the BARF diet leaves on your dog’s health.
