Fresh Flat Face Wash Has Your Dog Kissably Sweet FAST!

Did you ever lean in to give your Bulldog a kiss and wonder what that nasty smell was? Did you check your shoes, the trash can and even look under the sofa? It was the mustiest, funkiest smell since your little brother said smell this and stuck a rotten egg under your nose. After a frantic search you sit back down and your Bulldog jumps up beside you and it hits you, literally and figuratively, it is your dog!  You realize your dog's wrinkles, which are adorable, are hiding a stinky, gooey gunk. Ugh, what to do?

Many flat-faced dogs can develop a thick, pastey, crud in their folds and wrinkles. If left uncleaned it can irritate their skin and lead to ugly infections. Even if your dog's face is not gooey, tears trapped in wrinkles or facial folds can cause an unpleasant odor. FYI, dogs with inverted tails can have the same issue where their tail pushes back into their body. Trust me on this one, you want to catch it early.

Blissful Dog Bathing Tips

Blissfully Clean Dog Bathing Tips

  • First, don’t rush. Make sure you have plenty of time to make bath time positive and maybe even fun. If you feel yourself getting frazzled, stop and breathe.
  • Determine where the bathing will take place. The kitchen sink or a laundry tub may work for your smaller dog. Large dogs may require the bathtub or shower. If weather permits, bathing your dog outside could be a fun family event
  • Gather your supplies prior to the bathing extravaganza
  • Suggested Supplies: Your choice of Blissfully Clean Dog Shampoo or Soap, towels (at least three), cotton balls, collar & lead (if needed), yummy dog treats for after bath, wine/chocolate for your job-well-done after bath treat (if needed)
  • Use an encouraging happy voice (use that baby talk voice, yeah, we all do it) and talk to your dog throughout the bath
  • Put a cotton ball in each ear to keep water out – this is a biggie and will save you potential ear infections and expense
  • Wet your dog thoroughly from the ears back with lukewarm water (not hot)
  • Tip: DO NOT squirt water into their face…dogs hate that! Use a washcloth or small bath puff for face cleaning
  • Grab your shampoo/soap and work up a lather
  • Start behind their ears and massage the suds into their coat from ears to tail (don’t forget their toes)
  • Rinse, rinse, rinse and then rinse one more time just to be sure!
  • Towel dry very gently
  • Let your dog shake – they really, really want to, so let ’em have a good shake! It's part of being a dog
  • If you used soap put it on a soap dish, let it dry, then pop back in its tin
  • If needed, blow dry with a very cool setting. If you will be drying your dog often invest in a special dog blow dryer
  • Praise them, pet them, make this a FUN occasion
  • Most dogs have the rip snorts after a bath! Let them run!
  • Treat yourself to a job well done! Have that glass of wine or treat of your choice
