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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

Do French Bulldogs drool?

1 Comment


In short, yes. However, it all depends on some factors. With the French Bulldog being a Brachycephalic dog, or a short muzzled dog, this means that they have excess skin built up around their face creating their well known expressive wrinkles. Water, food, and excess saliva can and will easily get caught up in the folds and cause the dog to drool. This breed will also drool more when he / she gets excited, has done physical activity, smells something tasty, or smells another dog in heat. Having a hand towel to wipe away the drool is the easiest way to get rid of it before the dog shakes his / her head and the drool goes flying. Although, constant drooling or dripping can be a sign of a few different medical issues and should be checked by a vet.

What is the best food for a French Bulldog puppy?



The best food to feed your French Bulldog is a grain-free puppy food. Go to your local pet store and ask to see their selection of grain-free puppy food. There will be several different brands/flavors to choose from. Choose the dog food that fits for your budget and it will be perfect for your dog. Then, when your pup reaches between 9 - 12 months old; you can switch to that brands grain-free adult dog food.


Free of chicken and meat, those that are based on salmon or lamb are good, I recommend you taste of the wild pacific stream.


My Frenchie is sensitive and we have had luck with the FROMM food line


The best food for Frenchies is a raw diet. We incorporate fruit, vegetables, sardines and salmon. Knowing exactly what they are eating minimizes if not eliminates the “allergies”, and you see what is best for their health.


Arguably the best raw diet I have found is raw Tripe. It is good for both puppy and adults, especially with sensitive diets. This diet will produce dark firm odorless stools and add shine to their coats.

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

1 Comment


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?



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.


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


If they are a good breeder the dogs will be bred and born at home, the old fashioned way. My frenchie came from a breeder that never needed c-sections, artificial insemination, no breathing issues or hip issues. Not one of her liters had any pups that had health problems. But breeders use that crap to get more money. If the breeder knows what they are doing the pups won't have all of these health issues that so many think comes with the breed. The frenchie was never bred to produce a bigger head, that was in the english bulldog


This answer is for the comment of the buyer that bought a frenchie from a breeder that didn’t need insemination or C-section. We breeders do not make up the crap of insemination or C-section to charge more money. I paid for stud service, to guarantee the health of my pups. Yes there are different factors for the fees we breeders pay: 1) DNA tested for health issues 2) Structure and color is a bug factor. I feed my females with the right food for the breed(not cheap). I have vet bills for not just the insemination, but regular check ups like any other owner. C-section is a MUST, because I love my females and I don’t want to risk her life or the puppies to save the C-section fee that ranges $2000-$3500 depending on the area you live in. Also the puppies get checked ever 2 weeks and I DNA test them for health issues after born and I can continue. There is no intention from us good and responsible breeders to charge more because of those factors, those are just facts for us.

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



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.


There are such a wide variety of French Bulldog structures now a days. The French Bulldog was originally bred to fight bulls way back in the day. Their structure was more narrow, they had a muzzle, and an athletic build. Of corse a 20 lb cobby French Bulldog would be of 1) no threat 2) no capacity to move or guard. But if bred correctly and if the puppy is from a breeder who socializes and trains the puppy for the first few weeks of their life, French Bulldogs can grow up and be extremely obedient and can be trained to do virtually anything else like any other breed of dog. My French Bulldogs are very observant and I consider them great watch dogs. I am looking into placing one of my Studs in protection training just to prove to others it CAN be done, if done correctly. If you are looking for a Frenchie protection dog, an athletic structure is of utmost importance.
