Can French bulldogs stay outside?

Are French Bulldogs good with children?

All young children need supervision around dogs, especially puppies.   This is often for the puppy’s sake as well.   That said, French Bulldogs are typically good around children.

Are French Bulldogs good with other dogs?

This is very much a matter of personality combined with experience.  For any individual dog, it is a question that must be tested to find the answer.  Be sure that the test is supervised at all times.

Do Frenchies snore?

Yes, Frenchies can snore and some are rather loud at it.  Snoring is also aggravated by breathing deficiencies.

What breathing problems?

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.

Potty training?

Some dogs are harder than others.  Crate training is very helpful in house breaking.  A dog perceives it as their “den” and will not soil it.    Develop a routine after they eat, before bed and first thing in the morning, and be consistent.  A minimum of three potty breaks a day are necessary. For puppies, potty breaks should be every two hours.  Remember a puppy’s little bladders may not be under control as quickly as we’d like so be positive.

Are French Bulldogs good watch dogs?

French Bulldogs make good watch dogs and can become somewhat territorial and protective.

How do Frenchies take to apartment living?

Wonderfully.  This is one reason the French Bulldog has been popular throughout the history of the breed.  Frenchies 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.  If your Frenchie only gets the occasional walk to the grass outside, is at least something.

Are French Bulldogs sociable?

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.

Are French Bulldogs good with cats?

That very much depends on the individual dog and whether the dog or the cat was introduced first to the household.  If you already have a cat be prepared for possible failure.

Are French Bulldogs easy to train?

They can be very willing.  They can also be very stubborn and hardheaded too.  If you make it a game they’ll want to play all the time.  Frenchies are often considered people pleasers and love to be the center of attention.

What about feeding?

Use consideration to feed a French Bulldog properly, We feed Royal Canin and Canine Caviar (limited ingredient diet) A healthy Frenchie is not overweight.  Too many pounds can damage their physical structure and shorten their lifespan. Note: Wheat products are known to be flatulence producing in some French Bulldogs.  Corn products and fillers that are an additional source of protein may cause hives (skin rashes or irritations).
