HOW TO TAKE CARE OF A FRENCHIE



Sharing buttons:

hi this is Lulu sketches and this is how

to take care of a French Bulldog when I

first wanted to get a French Bulldog I

really wanted some sort of tutorial or

video to follow to know how to take care

of their weird features like their

wrinkles the short nose the bat ears

I've learned a ton since having a French

Bulldog for over a year now and I'd like

to share it with you guys first of all

why I got a Frenchie there are small

dogs there great apartment dogs they

have weird personalities they're these

little weirdos and they are so adorable

they're also very snuggly they're always

by your side so if you're looking for a

cuddle buddy this breed is perfect for

you now a few things you need to know

before you get a french bulldog first of

all keep them cool so they have short

noses so see how short her nose is so

look at her profile meaning they

overheat faster so to keep Mabel cool

when we're outside if she starts panting

we will give her water we will throw

cold water on her we'll give her ice

cube if it's too hot outside we don't

let her outside if you want a doggie you

can go on a hike with French bulldogs

are probably not the dog for you we've

taken Mabel on hikes with us before and

usually she'll walk for a little bit and

then we put her in the back of a

backpack with her head popped out and

carry her the rest of the way next how

to clean your Frenchie there's a lot of

parts to Mabel though we have to clean

she has these big fat ears and they're

open all the time so there's all kinds

of dust and junk getting into there so

we use an ear cleaner put a few drops

into the ear and you massage it like

this for maybe a minute and then you let

her shake it out and then you take

cotton balls and clean all the junk out

next wrinkles so Mabel doesn't have as

many wrinkles as maybe an average

Frenchie sometimes French cheese will

get junk collecting in between these

wrinkles here if you have a

light-colored Frenchie then they can get

tear stains and there are special

products for that the next thing we

opted lien on Mabel is something you

probably haven't heard of and probably

wish that you never knew about French

cheese has something called a tail

pocket French bulldogs

are born with these little tails they're

not clipped they're born like that but

on some French bulldogs their tails grow

directly into their butt basically and

there's a space in there you have to

clean that this is weird I'm trying to

explain this but it's weird okay

Mabel's tail looks like this it's like

this cute little corkscrew and it is

tight against her skin but you can lift

it and underneath there's an area you

have to make sure you clean it's not her

butthole it's all above her butthole

since the tail is tight against it

bacteria can get under there it gets

moist under there they can break out in

a rash under there which Mabel has

before so you have to make sure to keep

that clean the next thing we do for

Mabel is give her a drop Mabel gets

eyedrops in the morning and at night do

they keep her eyes healthy and they keep

debris out it washes the debris out the

next thing we do with Mabel is give her

bath we use a special shampoo that we

got from the vet which is good for

Mabel's sensitive skin many Frenchie's

have sensitive skin Mabel has

experienced some rashes on her stomach

before just from rolling around in grass

the shampoo really helps with that also

when you bathe there Frenchie make sure

to put cotton balls inside of their ears

is there

so open water can get into there and

that can cause an infection my next

topic is get your Frenchie a harness

French bulldogs

have a very particular shape French

bulldogs have big heads big fronts to

their bodies and then small back legs

and small back to their bodies harnesses

help them a lot to pull on the right

place so when you're walking your

Frenchie and they try to pull you

they're not going to choke themselves my

next topic is be careful around water

Frenchie's for the most part cannot swim

because of the shape of their body

they're very very top-heavy they pretty

much will sink there are some exceptions

some French bulldogs can actually swim

on their own Mabel is not one of those

dogs they do make life jackets for dogs

so you can get one for your Frenchie if

you want to bring them swimming feed

your Frenchie really good food you want

to keep them healthy we buy Mabel a

super healthy natural type of dog food

from Petco there's no grain in there

because dogs aren't made to digest grain

Mabel's a favorite snack is carrots

for my next topic

Frenchie's our clingy they always want

to be at your side if I'm in a certain

room navel always follows me into that

room if I go into the bathroom Mabel

will sit at the door and whine until I

come out they're just very loving and

they want to be any other human at all

times so let them love you bring them

with you whenever you can I actually

bring Mabel to work with me every day I

know that's not possible for everyone if

you're going out to eat there's a lot of

places where you can sit outside and

they allow you to bring dogs especially

in Los Angeles if you're planning on

getting a dog that you can just kind of

leave at home all day and come check up

on for a couple hours French bulldogs

are probably not the ones for you in

fact dogs are probably not a good thing

for you if you're just gonna leave it at

home all the time then maybe just get a

cat many French bulldogs are food driven

meaning that they can be trained very

very easily with food Mabel can do quite

a few tricks if we have a treat for her

[Music]

don't get a French Bulldog from some

breeder you found on Craigslist don't

get a French Bulldog from a pet shop

that's pretty much the worst thing you

can do either find a very trustworthy

breeder who only breathes maybe one or

two litters per year or even better try

to adopt one group that I really love is

the French Bulldog rescue network so

I've been following this for years on

Facebook and you should check it out I

will add a link to it down below they

post French bulldogs all the time that

need homes even puppies and also donate

to this network so the last Frenchy I

saw in there I was able to donate a

particular item that they needed which

was awesome and for other French's

before I've just donated money it's a

really great cause if you want to donate

to that link is down below I hope this

was helpful let me know if you have any

more questions about having a French

Bulldog thank you for watching and

please give this video a thumbs up bye
