20 Things All English Bulldog Owners Must Never Forget

Despite his gloomy mug, the English Bulldog is one of the most amiable of all breeds. Some English Bulldogs are friendly with strangers, while others are politely reserved.

Though stubborn, the English Bulldog is surprisingly sensitive, remembers what he learns, and responds well to patient, persistent training that utilizes food motivation. Jerking this breed around accomplishes absolutely nothing.

It’s been often said that dogs are the only creatures on earth that love you more than they love themselves. Well, English Bulldogs are no exception!

But sometimes, we take our furry friends and wonderful companions for granted. There are important life lessons that are sometimes easy to forget in our hectic lives, that all English Bulldog owners must never forget.

  1. We have two 1.5 year olds, and one of them had this issue. They excrete like an oil which seems like sweat. Ask your vet about it. We had to bathe him with a special shampoo for a bit, but for the last 11 months, he has not had this problem. Below is an article I found that explains it better, and Malaseb shampoo is what we used.

  2. The info below is from this linkhttps://www.justanswer.com/dog-health/276g3-does-dog-feel-sweaty-stomach-sometimes.html: Dogs have very few sweat glands so what you are feeling is oil from the sebaceous glands. These glands are spread all over the body. Their function is to lubricate and protect the skin and also to coat the hair fibres. Normally the amount of oil secreted isn’t enough to be too obvious. A “healthy coat” is often the only clue we have to adequate oil production. However some dogs have excessively active oil glands and the oil becomes more noticeable as a clammy feel on the bare parts of the skin. This build up of oil can also facilitate the breeding of skin bacteria and yeasts. So these bugs are breeding in the oil and dead skin layer on the surface, they are not at this stage invading the skin and causing a true infection. As they break down the oils they create odour. This is the strong “doggy smell” you are noticing. So when you bath her you remove the top smelly layer but the layer of oil below still contains the bacteria and yeasts and they continue to break the oil down and the smell returns straight away.
    You will need to switch to a medicated shampoo that will penetrate deeper through the oil layer and into the dead keratin layer on the surface of the skin. Malaseb shampoo (http://www.malaseb.net/) is specifically designed for this and will also control the yeast and bacterial overload. It is available over the counter at most vets.
    This is a common problem in dogs and needs some attention because eventually the bacteria will penetrate into the live layer of the skin and cause a dermatitis which may require medication.
    I hope I have been of assistance.

  3. Aleksandra Todorovic , Sorry for the long comment, but we were perplexed as well! George was our puppy that had the same issue, and he had Demodex (puppy mite issues) which may be what caused the skin issue. Seriously, that shampoo helped so much. Good luck!

  4. This is my last night with her. She has cancer. My heart is broken and I can’t sleep. We had to give her a sedative to calm her. She has cancer. I just want to listen to her funny snoring and kiss her cheeks. She is the best listener, nurse, protector and friend.
