One of the gentlest breeds, the English Bulldog has grown in popularity. Originally bred for baiting bull, this breed can be intimidating but is very affectionate and surprisingly gentle. English Bulldogs do fairly well with children. This breed is sturdy and can withstand child play.
This short nosed and stocky breed loves attention. A very reliable, loving, and gentle breed, this dog makes an excellent companion for children and adults. More of a human companion, the English Bulldog also does well with other dogs and cats. This breed is always looking for guidance from his owner.
The English Bulldog can display dominating behavior and requires a firm handler to show him his place. Great for a loving family, the English Bulldog gives a lot of love and attention, and expects it in return. This breed has been used as a guard dog, and does exceptionally well given the correct training.
A rubber brush will be sure to remove any loose or dead hair. Combing will also eliminate much of the hair. The English Bulldog is an average shedder and should be bathed only when necessary. Mouth should be cleaned regularly and underneath the folds of skin with a damp washcloth.
The coat of the English Bulldog is very short. It should always consist of smooth, straight, and flat hair that lies close to the body of the dog, and be of fine texture.
This breed requires a firm hand and consistent training. Relatively lazy, this breed doesn't need much activity to make a great companion. Does very well as a guard or watchdog. A dominant owner is a must if this breed is to be well mannered.
The English Bulldog doesn't require much exercise but would do well with a short walk occasionally. This breed tires out easily and considering the flat muzzle, should always have available water.

Annual cost of owning an English 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 an English 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.

What known health problems do Bulldogs have?

1 Comment


The English Bulldog breed is sadly riddled with many health problems. These can be minor to major depending on the linage or pedigree of your puppy. If you are thinking of getting an English Bulldog, not only should you research your breeder to make sure he/she are breeding the 'most healthy' dogs he/she can. But you should also look into health insurance for your puppy / dog before hand. Some insurance companies will not even insure English Bulldogs now because they are at a high risk for health problems. The list below are just some of the most common health issues. These include but are not limited to major respiratory problems (Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome), overheating / heat stroke, severe skin allergies, eczema / dry skin / acne, arthritis, degenerative spine disease, cherry eye, hip and elbow dysplasia (more than 80% of bulldogs will get hip dysplasia in their life time), joint / ligament injuries, idiopathic head tremors, progressive vomiting / regurgitation issues (not being able to swallow their food), fold dermatitis, heart disease and cancer.

Are English Bulldogs good with kids?



It is not in your best interest to have young children and an English Bulldog. This breed is very stubborn and tenacious. Without proper socialization, the dog can become very possessive of things such as family members, territory, other animals, food and toys. If the dog feels that a child's toy or food is theirs, they will take it and they are normally stronger than a child. Because of this and other behavioral traits, the breed can also have aggressive tendencies towards other dogs of the same gender. If a child were to get in the way or be holding the leash at the time, the dog would not notice the child and he/she could get hurt. I would only ever recommend children at or over the age of 13 that are dog experienced to be in the household with an English Bulldog.


I couldn’t disagree more! EBs are extremely gentle and tolerant of children. My EBs love kids and every EB I have had loved children. In fact, EBs are very protective of the children in their family. Anonymous should probably not have dogs or children.


I totally disagree!!! We have had 15 bulldogs during my son’s life ( he is 14 ). They are his best friends!!! They have NEVER shown any aggression towards him!! The first person commenting must not have Bulldog experience!


I disagree we having a 3yr old girl and 3 teenage boys. We also have 7 English Bulldogs. It's how you raise them! Love in your heart and give them love your dog will give love in return. We have had English Bulldogs over 10 years and never an issue. They are like little humans.... they know!


I completely disagree, our English Bulldog was AMAZING with children. He was honestly like their nanny.


I disagree with this statement as well! I got out first puppy when my son was 2 years old and they've become the best of friends.

Anonymous asked:
Hi, When a bulldog is fully vet checked, should it therefore have a separate one from the injection certificate and should it state if it is HUU clear?? or at what age is it tested to see if it is HUU clear if both parents were also.

1 Comment


A simple blood DNA test is what is needed to test for HUU. A bulldog puppy can be tested for this before or after he/she leaves the breeder and goes to the new owner. Some breeders do genetic testing on their puppies before they go off to their new homes to show the new owners that their puppies are healthy and free of genetic defaults. However, some do not. The term "fully vetted" normally refers to a puppy having their complete shots and check up before going off to their new home. It does not include genetic testing unless the breeder specifies it. The HUU test will be on a separate certificate then the shots and vet check.

Is it okay to buy two English Bulldog's at the same time?

1 Comment


When bringing a new dog into the home, it is best to bring one at a time. That way you are able to focus your attention on the new dog, go through obedience training with the dog and work with house training and house rules. Bringing in multiple dogs, either puppy or adult dogs into a new home can be a great challenge as they will bond heavily to each other instead of the new owners. Behavioral problems can arise if that happens.

I don't know if the female English Bulldog I acquired has been spade. Where exactly would the scar be?



The scar of a female's spay should be right below their belly-button on their stomach. If you are unsure, it is best to bring your dog to the vet. If your vet can not find the scar, he/she can take an ultrasound of your girls stomach and that will determine if the dog has been spayed or not. Sometimes if the spay was done early on in the dogs life, the scar can barely be seen or go away completely.


The Vet doesn't spay puppies under 4months of age if you received your new baby around 8 - 12 weeks and you do not see an obvious scar nor received a spay certificate from the breeder than your baby isn't spayed. Hope this helps.
