Understanding The Bulldog

Mar 26, 2008
The Bulldog is one of the favored breeds of dog, one reason being that they do not require a great deal of time spent on grooming. The Bulldog definitely has one of the most favorable personalities and temperaments in the canine world, and they make a great family pet even if younger aged children will be living in the home. It is going to be well worth it for you to take some time and find a legitimate and reputable breeder to purchase a Bulldog from.

There are hundreds of different breeds of dog that you can choose from but a few in particular that are especially popular. This includes the Bulldog for one, who is a favorite around the world but especially so in the United States and England. Descended from the Asiatic mastiff, the Bulldog was actually developed in Great Britain and they are considered as being a non-sporting breed group.

One of the main reasons that the Bulldog is such a favored breed is that they are so easy to take care of. Unlike many other breeds, the Bulldog's coat is close, straight, glossy and smooth, and so there is little shedding and there is also no feathering or curl. This cuts back significantly on the time it will take you to groom the dog, which is very advantageous, and it also means that they look great all year round, with little effort from you.

The appearance of the Bulldog, as aforementioned, is definitely respectable, but there are other characteristics of the Bulldog that are quite favorable as well. They have a fantastic personality, and they are loyal, affectionate and deeply devoted to their family. They make wonderful pets even in homes with younger aged children, and they will get along with other pets in the home but may react differently to other strange dogs and animals when you are out and about.

This is due to their embedded guarding abilities, which are good to have in a dog because they are always alert and on guard but will only bark when necessary, when they sense a danger or threat. Training is still important with Bulldogs even though they have a great personality to begin with, especially since they have a tendency to be very stubborn and domineering. As the owner of a Bulldog you need to make sure they are aware of who is in charge.

The bottom line is that although there are literally hundreds of different breeds of dog that you can choose from, Bulldogs are definitely one of the best. They are easily one of the most laid back and friendly dogs, and make for a great family pet. Once you have decided that you do in fact want a Bulldog, the best idea is to take a bit of time and find a reputable breeder that you can buy from.

This is important because although there are certainly many legitimate and respected breeders out there, there are also many that are known as mass breeders who are more in it for the financial means than because they actually care for the dogs. Make sure you ask a potential breeder a lot of questions before agreeing to do business with them, and have them provide you with the proper paperwork. A good breeder will be pleased that you are concerned with these sorts of issues and will never make you feel as though you are overstepping your bounds.
