A Guide To Raising A Healthy Bulldog

Aug 19, 2008
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.

The Bulldog is a great watchdog and has fantastic guarding abilities but they will only bark when necessary. This is another favorable characteristic because you will not have to worry about being kept up all night or dealing with incessant barking throughout the day as you would with other breeds, particularly smaller more yippy dogs. As long as you are sure to give them the love and attention that they crave they will be a very well behaved pet and definitely one worth considering if you are interested in getting a dog.

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.

Just make sure before agreeing to buy a dog from any breeder that you take the time to find out what sort of reputation they have. You want to make sure that they have been in the business for a reasonable amount of time and that they only focus on the Bulldog breed because then you will be assured of their knowledge on the breed.

Remember that any good breeder is going to be more than willing and able to provide you with the information you are looking for, so never feel as though you are overstepping your bounds or crossing the line.
