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.

Does your French Bulldog bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new French Bulldog puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

French Bulldog Questions

What is the best food for a French Bulldog puppy?

Answer:
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.

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

Answer:
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?

Answer:
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.

Answer:
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.

Answer:
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!

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

Are French Bulldogs good watch dogs and good for protection?

Answer:
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.
