The French Bulldog Face: How to clean the folds + more

French Bulldog Face: Cleaning the folds + more

Those outrageously cute wrinkles on a french bulldog face are definitely one of the most recognizable earmarks of the breed. Almost all frenchies have deeply pronounced facial wrinkles, called ‘folds’, as well as many other brachycephalic breeds like Boston Terriers, Pugs, and English Bulldogs. Just as you might have to remove the occasional dingle-berry from your frenchie’s fanny, you should also occasionally give their other crevices a good cleaning. For this post, we put together a video (below) on how to clean your french bulldog’s face and facial folds, as well as make a couple of recommendations on what to look for in good products to keep your french bulldog’s face and folds clean. Click here to jump to the video.


In the photos below, you can see the clearly pronounced ‘wrinkles’ that create ‘folds’ on a french bulldog’s face. A french bulldog’s incredibly short muzzle, their wiry and thick fur, and their delightful chubbiness all contribute to the formation of their facial folds. These folds need occasional cleaning. So, we put together a short guide on how to clean your french bulldog’s face and folds.

Regularly cleaning your french bulldog’s face and folds helps keep their eyes clean and free from detritus. It also reduces the build of bacteria that become trapped in their facial wrinkles. We recommend you clean your french bulldog’s face weekly, or with every bath. As you can see in the bottom photo above, not cleaning your french bulldog’s folds and face can lead to serious skin problems. You should regularly check your french bulldog’s folds for any signs of trouble.

Note: Sorry about the noise caused by the camera focusing. We’re still learning. =)

French Bulldog face cleaning products that we recommend:

These products are negligibly cheap, so we recommend keeping them around. A tear stain removing will help reduce those dark “tear stains” beneath your frenchie’s eyes. We like the sodium hydroxide-based tear stain removers. They’re gentle on your frenchie’s skin but can visibly reduce tear stains, just make sure you wash off any excess. We also use “moist wipes”, or wet wipes as some people refer to them. We use the human-variety, but there are also specialty face wipes available from Amazon and other places. It’s your call. Below (and in the video), you’ll see us reference “Snout Soother“; this is optional but it really does work wonders for your french bulldog’s nose. We can’t recommend it enough if your frenchie’s nose gets even the least bit dry.
