Overview
The French Bulldog is a small energetic breed. They have large, rounded, bat like ears and a square flat head, similar to that of a English Bulldog but smaller. Their skin is quite soft making them very appealing to pet. Very comical little dogs they are always great for a good laugh and long friendship.
Character
The French Bulldog has a very even and pleasant temperament, which makes him a perfect candidate for a household companion. French Bulldogs are very playful, yet some males may be dog aggressive. This breed gets along well with most other animals, and does best with older children.
Temperament
This hilarious little dog makes a wonderful playmate and is very affectionate. Alert and clingy, this breed does require lots of human attention to thrive. This is not a kennel breed and should always be kept in a family environment. Given proper socialization the French Bulldog can do well with other dogs, but should not be around small children, as they do not tolerate rough play.
Care
This breed is an average shedder and does not need much grooming. Brushing with a rubber brush will remove any dead or loose hair. Due to the flat muzzle, the French Bulldog tends to drool so the mouth should be cleaned regularly. Bathe only when necessary.
Coat
The French Bulldog sports a very short and smooth coat that should be fine to the touch, to a certain degree. This breed does not require much grooming, but under the folds of skin should be regularly cleaned.
Training
The French Bulldog can be somewhat willful so consistency is required. Even this being a sturdy little breed, they do not respond well to harsh training methods. This dog does best with a patient handler. With the correct handler, this breed can go far.
Activity
The French Bulldog can easily become overheated due to the flat muzzle and breathing problems during extreme temperatures. Proper shade and water should always be provided. Not recommended for outdoor life. Do not exercise this breed in hot weather as this can cause heatstroke. If it's too hot outdoors, move your exercise and play indoors to prevent complications.

Annual cost of owning a French Bulldog puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a French Bulldogs true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

How long does a French Bulldog female stay before delivering pups?

1 Comment

Anonymous

A dog is pregnant for an average of 62 days. But can give birth as early as 59 days or as late as 68 days. Responsible, reputable and knowledgeable breeders will be in constant contact with their vets and have their dog monitored for when it is safe for the dog to give birth. Since it is rare for a French Bulldog to be able to give birth naturally, a C-section is normally needed. So the vet will schedule that sometime between day 61 - 64.

Why are French Bulldogs so expensive?

4 Comments

Many French Bulldog's cannot reproduce naturally (the male cannot mount the female easily) and need to be artificially inseminated. Also, due to their large heads and small hips, almost all French Bulldog's mothers must undergo a c-section to remove her puppies. All of this costs quite a bit and is reflected in adoption costs.

Anonymous

There are several reasons why the French Bulldog is such an expensive breed. The reasons I am listing are not limited to just those. Some reasons include that the French Bulldog is going through a popular state right now, the breed has an average of 3 - 5 puppies and breeders need to make their money back that they put into the pregnancy/dam and sire. This breed needs a C-section to get the puppies out, as they can not deliver naturally with such big heads and C-sections are very expensive. This breed has quite a bit of health problems and breeding a healthy litter of puppies, doing all the medical tests on the dam and sire prior to breeding costs a lot of money as well.

I personally believe a lot of the Frenchie pups listed are overpriced by $500. I'm an owner and despite its popularity, issues with breeding, etc. It's crazy that breeders can justify these crazy prices!

if you want a quality pup with good DNA then you pay the price

Anonymous asked:
Are French Bulldogs good watch dogs and good for protection?

1 Comment

The French Bulldog is not considered a watch dog or a protection dog. These are friendly little dogs that enjoy the company of humans and other animals. Though they will bark when someone rings the doorbell or knocks on the door, the breed is not aggressive and not considered as a dog for protection. Their shortened muzzles don't allow them to do everything physically needed as a protection dog. If you are in need of a protection dog, contact a trainer and/or business such as Vohne Liche Kennels which specialize in training protection dogs for people. Do not train a dog yourself, please let professionals do so for you.

Avoid wheat/corn/grains at all cost in food.

I Recommend Orijen, This is a very good food for Frenchies!

Royal Canin is a very good and balanced food that Frenchies do well on. Another food you can try is "Blue" No Grain Salmon and Potato. It should work well for hair. Another thing you can try using Vitamin E, and just rub that into the area where the hair is lost, do it one or twice daily for about a week. But most of the hair loss is due to skin allergies and 90% out of a 100% is food related. I have all my Frenchies on Royal Canin and some on Blue and they are all good.

It's probably seasonal alopecia and although it's not really treatable, it's nothing to worry about. My Boxer goes through it every year.

It could also be that your French Bulldog is a flank biter. They are bored because of lack of exercise. It could be your dog just needs more exercise. Ask the veterinarian.

Flank Alopecia. Try melatonin for a couple months.

Anonymous

Your Frenchie has allergies, try a little bit of local honey to help build their tolerance or an allergy pill. As far as dog food, I use Organix. Organix has nothing to do with allergies but for everyone out there, I do not recommend Instinct. I fed that to my little one and she ended up with liver issues and her ALT levels were off the charts. We changed her diet back to Organix and got positive test results back.

If they ruled out hypothyroidism (should have checked T4/Ft4 bloodwork not generally run in a normal CBC/CHEM panel) then this is a condition called "cyclical or seasonal flank alopecia", it generally develops during the Winter and hair will grow back in the Spring/Summer only to fall out again the next year. You can supplement with Melatonin. Dosage for a Frenchie is 3mg twice a day, it is safe but can take a long time to work (ie month or months of therapy), some people whose dog develops this condition either start the treatment before the season in which the hair usually falls out or since it is a benign therapy continue it year round to prevent a relapse. This is a cosmetic condition, however they can get secondary bacterial infections on the skin where the hair falls out and lighter skinned/coated dogs can get sunburnt and need sunscreen (Rec. baby bullfrog or other non-zinc based baby sunscreen).

How much different is a French Bulldog from a Boston Terrier?

3 Comments

Anonymous

Frenchies are a little heavier boned and they come in a wide variety of colors. I'm not an expert of Bostons. I raise Frenchies and English bulldogs. Overall the Bostons and Frechies are similar in what dog breeds created them. I think the Frenchies are more "bull doggy" meaning they are more heavy bodied and they seem more laid back.

Anonymous

French bulldogs come from English bulldog Chinese plug and Boston terrier the breeds are mixed differently that's the difference.

Anonymous

The Frenchies & Bostons are very similar. Both are affectionate, short, soft hair. Love to be petted, have no fear of anything & size means nothing to them. Slow, loving, consistent training w/treat and praise is the only way to go. Have had 3 Boston's and all were hilarious, intelligent, loving members of our family. Each one slept w/us. I've always trained & talked to all of my special members as intelligent humans. All were easily potty trained, sit, lie down, stay, leash & no leash, talk, kisses, count & etc. Bostons are taller and less bulldoggie(slighter built) ears naturally are more pointy & less bow in legs. Personalities are similar & both will test you once in awhile.(like bullheadedness) But they're so darn cute at it!!!.
