Olde English Bulldogge Grooming

There is very little to do when it comes to grooming an Olde English Bulldogge and almost all of it has to do with typical brushing, cleaning, and feeding. Basically, these dogs are easy to groom with a weekly brushing, a bath every month or so (unless they get into the mud or some other mess), and a daily cleaning of their face wrinkles to prevent fungal and other infections.

Olde English Bulldogge Styling & Haircuts

Due to the Olde English Bulldogge's history — which is both brief even as, in a way, it is long — there is just one way to groom this type of dog. Of course, you can always let the coat grow out and then go crazy with a mohawk down the back, or chemical-free, water-based veggie dye for a party or doggie date. Still, these are not dogs given to a variety of styles as they have a short, smooth, and low- to medium-shedding coat.

The broad, strong head, the barrel-shaped body, and the medium-length, powerful legs come together to form a well-known look of its own. As such, there's really no need to do much more than let your olde style English Bulldog be herself! The tail offers little to play with too. Whether it's docked (which fortunately is less and less the case these days) or the all there (as it should be!), it will be just fine unadorned. If you are wondering about a show dog look, the standard set forth by the United Kennel Club doesn't so much state what is expected as what will disqualify one of these dogs. Some are genetic (such as albinism and coat colors) and simply must be left that way. In any case, the show dog look is a very straight-forward one that requires basic grooming (and training) to acquire.

Perhaps the most "grooming" that tends to be done is muscle-building. This should not be done until after she is at least a year old. Even then, it should be done only after carefully consulting with your vet and an experienced Bulldog trainer. Adhering to a good diet that prevents obesity and health issues is also essential. Done properly, she can look all that an Olde English Bulldogge is meant to be: powerful, beautiful, and healthy!
