The Bulldog dog Breed Tips And Essential Information

Jun 16, 2008
French Bulldog puppies are very eager to please and friendly by their nature. They are gentle with humans despite their aggression with other dogs. However, you still need to take a lot of time to properly socialize your French Bulldog puppies with people and other pets. If you notice any signs of aggression towards humans then they need to be taken to a professional trainer right away.

So from an early age your should take French Bulldog puppies around other people and pets. Take them to public area and let strangers pet and play with them, but be sure to establish your authority over the dog. This dominance needs to be established early on in order for you pet to be obedient later in life. French Bulldog puppies are extremely dominant and if you don't establish authority early on it will be extremely difficult to get it later on. Also proper socialization early can help your puppy to develop an even temper.

You also want to make sure that French Bulldog puppies get their vaccinations early and that you constantly keep up their yearly booster shots to prevent them from getting common diseases. Also be sure to ask your veterinarian about the best flea control products and worming treatments for your puppy. For French Bulldog puppies you also want to make sure you feed them a high-grade dog food. Meat should be the first ingredient in any high quality dog food. Make sure it contains no less than thirty percent crude protein, twenty percent crude fat and four percent fiber.

Each day you want to make sure your puppy gets at least thirty to forty-five minutes of exercise. Due to their active nature, French Bulldog puppies will require a lot of activity. To avoid fights with other dogs, make sure your puppy is on a leash when outdoors. Even the calmest puppy at home will quickly turn into an entirely different dog once it is faced with another dog on a walk outside.

You also want to make sure you start obedience training early. You want to command your puppy through voice alone because of the dominance of the breed. You will likely get best results through positive reinforcement rather than physical since the breed is eager to please. When disciplining French Bulldog puppies the cold shoulder approach works best. Since the breed relies on attention, not giving it to them is worse than any other disciplinary methods you can come up with such as a newspaper.

Remaining calm is also important when you raise French Bulldog puppies. This is very important for this breed. If your dog senses you are afraid of a person or feels you are in danger for any reason then they will quickly attack that person. Therefore, when around strangers it is important to remain calm otherwise you need to maintain tight control over your dog so they don't needlessly injure another person.
