Everything you need to know about the French Bulldog

Most people assume that a French Bulldog has a poor temper. But the vast majority of French Bulldogs are extremely intelligent and very friendly. They are very tolerant when it comes to children, and therefore the breed will also make a good family dog. A French bulldog is full of courage and is very outgoing. It is not afraid of other dogs - regardless of their size, which of course can create conflicts.

If you pay attention to how your dog acts towards other dogs during dog training, you will rarely experience any problems. Like the vast majority of dogs, a French Bulldog should be well trained. In this connection, you must arm yourself with ample amounts of patience. The attention span is quite short-lived, and therefore you should only train it for short periods, and preferably with infrequent repetitions of the same exercises.

The temperament and mood of the French Bulldog

The French Bulldog is a very loving dog, which often has a fondness for a chosen person. On the face of it, the French Bulldog is very friendly and affectionate. They are a popular breed due to their compact size and low maintenance grooming needs. French Bulldogs are intelligent and adaptable, and they are good with children and other pets. They are also known for their tendency to be vocal, and they are known to be good watchdog breeds

It is said that the origins of the French bulldog can be traced back to the middle of the 20th century. It is said that a group of workers from England traveled to France with their English bulldogs, which were however a bit smaller than usual. This type of bulldog subsequently quickly became popular in the French environment. To begin with, workers kept the dog breed – especially at slaughterhouses in Paris – but as it became more and more popular, suddenly it was not unusual for even royal households to have a French bulldog as a pet..

How big does a French Bulldog get?

The French Bulldog does not grow very large, which may be the reason why many prefer this small companion dog. The French Bulldog's size is not affected by whether it is male or female. Both sexes grow to be somewhere between 30 and 32 cm tall, and they tend to weigh between 8 and 14 kilos. As soon as you become the owner of a French Bulldog puppy, be aware that it requires socializing right away. It thrives best as the center of the family, and it may be a good idea that it is quickly allowed to socialize with the children.

You don't have to worry about the close relationship between child and dog when it comes to how old the dog gets. Because the French Bulldog can live up to 14 years.

The average lifespan of a French bulldog is between 10 and 14 years, and the children in the family therefore have plenty of time to bond with the new member of the family.

What does a French Bulldog need?

If you buy a French Bulldog puppy, you are in the best position to influence the dog's development. It is important to remember that a French Bulldog can be very stubborn, but also incredibly mischievous. Since it is also a very social dog, it is one of the easier breeds to train because it just wants to be with its owner. The dog's stubbornness can make it difficult to train obedience in the puppy years, and it is therefore an area where you have to set aside a lot of patience and time.

The French Bulldog is a bit of a security junkie. It is at its best when it is with other dogs or people. The dog's social nature means that it is not so suitable for being alone at home too much. It is worth taking into account if your everyday life means that you are out for much of the day.

The balance between exercise and fun with the French Bulldog

It's not like you have to spend an awful lot of time exercising your French Bulldog - unlike many other dog breeds. However, it is a good idea to be aware that a French Bulldog can tend to become overweight. Therefore, you are wise to build up exercise routines while it is a puppy. As long as your dog is healthy and fit, the walk should not last more than half an hour.

The French Bulldog, on the other hand, is very playful, and it burns off a lot of energy through any kind of play which helps to stimulate and satisfy its social needs. The small amounts of exercise means that the French Bulldog can be  content in a house with a large yard or a small apartment. As long as it has its favorite people within sight.
