How to Give Your French Bulldog a Bath

Gather Supplies

Before you begin bathing your French Bulldog, you need to make sure you have all the necessary supplies on hand.

These include shampoo, conditioner, towels, cotton balls or swabs for cleaning the ears, a slicker brush for brushing out tangles after the bath is complete, and a blow dryer if you plan on using one.

Make sure all of these items are within easy reach so that you don’t have to go searching for them during the bath.

Prepare the Area

Before bringing your French Bulldog into the bathroom to bathe them, make sure that everything is ready.

Fill up the bathtub with warm (not hot) water and set out all of the necessary supplies.

You may also want to put a non-slip mat in the bottom of the tub so that your dog doesn’t slip around while getting washed.

Start Bathing

Once everything is ready, bring your French Bulldog into the bathroom and start by wetting down their coat with warm water from head to tail.

Make sure that their entire body is wet before applying shampoo or conditioner.

Start lathering up with shampoo starting at their head and working down towards their tail.

Work up a good lather before rinsing off thoroughly with warm water from head to tail again.

Rinse and Condition

After rinsing off all of the shampoo from your dog’s coat, it’s time to apply conditioner if desired.

This helps keep their fur soft and manageable after washing as well as preventing tangles and mats from forming in between baths.

Apply conditioner starting at their head again and working down towards their tail before rinsing off completely with warm water once more from head to tail again.

Dry Off

After rinsing off all of the soap and conditioner from your dog’s coat it’s time to dry them off.

You can either use towels or a blow dryer set on low heat settings for this task (never use high heat settings).

Start drying off at their head again working down towards their tail until they are completely dry before letting them out of the bathroom area or taking them outside for some fresh air if desired.


Once your French Bulldog has been dried off it’s time for brushing.

Use a slicker brush designed specifically for dogs which will help remove any loose fur or tangles in between baths as well as helping distribute natural oils throughout their coat which keeps it looking shiny and healthy.


Bathing your French Bulldog regularly is an important part of keeping them healthy and happy.

By following these steps you can ensure that they get a proper bath every time without any issues or messes.
