Hi Everyone,

Since this is my first bulldog, and my first "white" dog, I'd like to know if you all use sunscreen on your dogs in the summer?

Arlo's just a little bit pink around his nose still (my husband's really hoping it will all turn black), and I just read the below thread about pink/black noses and was curious about the chances for sunburn.

Yes! I use Bullfrog on my boy. Believe it or not (not sure where you're located) but they can get sunburn in the dead of winter, too! I put it on his ears and his belly.

Hi Kasco,

Thanks for the reply. We're in Michigan (never see the sun in the winter, LOL).

Do you not put it around his nose? I'm thinking that's where Arlo's more pinkish, but what the heck do I know.....that's why I asked :wink:

I use sunscreen on Chico's face. He gets red on the area above his nose and on his forehead. He's very fair skinned though. My brother's name is Arlo!!!! I'll tell him he shares it with a really cute bullie too!

Thanks for the info.

Arlo thanks you for the compliment too! We think he's adorable, and somehow that name just seems to "fit".

This board is great - everyone's very helpful. I appreciate the responses.

Maddi gets sunburned on the bare spots around her mouth and nose. I use a spray sunscreen, so I usually just douse her whole head and belly, lol.
