If you’re looking for a cute, happy, up-beat, loyal companion that will bring you lots of happiness and joy to your life, that doesn’t require much exercise, but does require tender and loving care.. THEN YES!! If you want an outdoorsy pet then this breed might not be suitable for you.
Frenchies are lovers for the most part…. I believe teaching our Children and Dogs what is right and wrong from the beginning will make kids and dogs a great combination! Many of my Frenchie babies are in homes with children and they could not be happier. Proper training and supervision is a must with ANY breed.
French Bulldogs are priced relatively high for a number of reasons. They are delivered only by Caesarian, have small litter sizes, and usually need to be artificially inseminated. All of this tends to keep their prices rather high. Please ensure that if you find one that seems to be a bargain, it’s probably an import or from a puppy mill.
Not really, there are exceptions to everything of course, but most French Bulldogs aren’t excessive barkers, but most will warn when someones coming to the door. The majority however, do grunt and snort and make super adorable “Frenchie noises”.
Because of their short face, most French Bulldogs snort, snuffle, wheeze, grunt, and snore loudly. The sounds are endearing to most people.
Although it is important to always supervise young children and dogs when they are together, the French Bulldog does very well with children, French Bulldogs are companion dogs and thrive when they have human contact. They are not a breed that can be left alone for long periods or left outside to live.
Sure, they shed a little. There are some dogs that have hair more like human hair (for example, Yorkies) which do not shed at all, but for a dog with fur, Frenchies are about as good as it gets for minimal shedding.
French Bulldogs make good watch dogs and can become somewhat territorial and protective.
They are fantastic companion dogs. They are fun, entertaining and loving. The French Bulldog is delightful, easy to groom, and requires little exercise.
Wonderfully. This is one reason the French Bulldog has been popular throughout the history of the breed. French Bulldogs like to be where you are and don’t take up too much space at all. It is good to get in a good walk as much as possible for overall health and exercise.
All dogs seem to do better with exposure to other aspects of life, other dogs, and people too. The French Bulldog should never be a mean, aggressive or a vicious animal. It is often recommended and a good idea to take your Frenchie visiting and to various places. This helps your dog be a better dog and not possibly overreact out of fear of the unknown. It also builds confidence and character in your dog. It gives you and the dog an easier time when separated or when traveling together.
Your Frenchie should NEVER be penned up for long stretches of time. He or she needs to be a part of your life.
Sometimes you may find a Frenchie that is noisy or has labored breathing. They may have a longer tongue or an excessive soft palate that is obstructing their airway. Smaller nose openings can exaggerate their already noisy breathing characteristics. Note: Other symptoms of elongated soft palate are spitting up or regurgitating food or foam frequently. Consult your veterinarian for corrective alternatives.
