The perfect French bulldog is not born perfect. He is the product of his heredity and creation. Whatever you want from him, look for one who has had parents with a good personality and who has been socialized since puppies. Any dog can develop unpleasant levels of barking, digging and other inappropriate behavior if it is bored, untrained or unsupervised. And it can be a huge challenge during adolescence, and in the case of the French bulldog, “adolescence” can start at 6 months and go up to two years old.
Buy a Frenchie puppy that has been raised at home and make sure he has been exposed to different places and sounds, as well as people before going to another home. Keep socializing, always taking the house of friends and neighbors, as well as public walks. Before buying a puppy, find out how to choose the ideal puppy and be sure to talk to your breeder, describe exactly what you are looking for in a puppy, and ask for help in choosing a puppy. Breeders tend to live with puppies every day and can give excellent recommendations once they know a little about their lifestyle and personality.
French bulldog Care & Maintenance
Start getting your Frenchie dog used to being brushed and examined from a puppy. Streak paws frequently – dogs tend to be sensitive to their paws – and look into their mouth and ears. Make this maintenance a positive experience full of praise and rewards. When checking it, look for bruises, scratches, wounds or signs of infection such as redness, swelling, or inflammation of the skin, ears, nose, mouth, eyes and paws. This quick scan can lead to diagnoses earlier and prevent major health problems.
Nails, ears and teeth
Brush his teeth 2 or 3 times a week to remove tartar and bacteria that proliferate inside mouth – daily it is even better to prevent gingivitis and bad breath and to prevent premature teeth falling out. Cut nails once or twice a month if they are not worn naturally. And check ears once a week for dirt, redness or a bad smell that may indicate infections.
Baths and brushings included
French Bulldogs are easy to maintain and care for, and need only occasional brushing to keep their hair healthy and shiny. They shed hair in moderation. When it is time to shed hair, use a rubber brush to remove loose hair.
