Breed Profile

If you own a French Bulldog, you already know that they are affectionate and spunky. French Bulldogs are one of a few breeds of dogs that were never meant to be anything but companion pets. That's their one and only job, and they excel at it! These bat-eared bulldogs in miniature were a hit in French haute society and street society alike, and by the early 1900x were such an elite breed of dog that only the likes of the Rockefellers could get their hands on one. The breed's popularity has yet to waiver, and the number of registered French Bulldogs has increased over 300% in the past ten years! Here are some characteristics that make your dog distinctly a French Bulldog.

Attitude and Behavior

French Bulldogs are clownish and fun loving companions. In fact, they're often described as "a clown in the cloak of a philosopher." They are playful, gentle, and generally good with children. In fact, they're all-around amiable dogs, getting along well with other pets, strange people and strange dogs. French Bulldogs are regarded as excellent family pets. Despite their stocky build, they'd prefer to be a lap dog if you'll let them.

French Bulldogs are eager to please, and tend to form strong bonds with their owners. Nevertheless some can be stubborn, particularly when forceful methods of training are used. Reward-based training (such as with games or food) is best, but be careful not to reward with food too much, or your French Bulldog's waistline may suffer!

Exercise and Nutrition

French Bulldogs show a tendency toward obesity. Weight can be monitored with this simple test: you should be able to feel the ribs, but they should not be noticeably by sight. If you can't feel them at all, your French Bulldog may have packed on a few extra pounds. Feed a balanced diet, as recommended by your veterinarian, and adjust calories and exercise if needed.

French Bulldogs make calm and trustworthy housedogs as long as their exercise needs are met. A leisurely walk supplemented with ample play time will usually do the trick. Most French Bulldogs can't swim. Dog parks make a good alternative for the social French Bulldog. Be sure that any off-leash area your dog plays in is properly enclosed.

Dear New Parent

As a dog breeder, animal health is my top priority. That’s why NuVet Plus immune system builder is required as part of your pet’s Health Guarantee.

Initially your pup is receiving most of his immunity from his Mom through the milk, but once weaned he needs help to build his own immunity to protect him in his new environment. NuVet was specifically formulated with potent antioxidants to assist your pup during this trying period and for years to come. He is already enjoying it as a treat and will be looking forward to it at your home. Please order prior to receiving your pup.

Hundreds of thousands of dogs and cats are using NuVet to protect against most ailments (from back yard pesticides, pet food allergies and hormones, toxic formaldehyde in furniture and carpeting, ailments transmitted from dog parks and the vet’s office, etc...), while maintaining a beautiful skin and coat.

This is not just a vitamin. It’s an immune system builder with a precise balance of vitamins, minerals, omega fatty acids, amino acids and high-potency antioxidants. That’s why it works so well through all three stages of a dog’s life.

For younger dogs (under 2 years old), it strengthens their immune system, while building and strengthening the cardiovascular, skeletal and nerve systems.

For dogs in their prime (age 2-8), it improves the luster of their skin and coat while protecting against allergies, skin and coat problems, staining from tears, digestive problems, etc.

For older dogs (over 8 years old), it helps protect against, tumors, premature aging, cataracts, heart conditions, diabetes and many types of cancer, while extending the life and improving the vitality of many dogs.

I highly recommend NuVet Plus to keep your pet on the path to perfect health! It’s not available in stores, and is only available to the general public with an order code from an authorized pet professional.

Royal Canin Mini Puppy / Chiot

Our moms and puppies start with Royal Canin starter food for moms and pups. Your puppy will be on Royal Canin while it is here, either mini, small breed puppy or medium breed puppy. Petsmart carries this food as well as other online sites. We do recommend this food, but if you choose to change food, make sure that you have Royal Canin on hand to mix with new food in order to ease the transition.

Puppy Care

We suggest a setup similar to these, as the puppy doesn't feel locked up. A mudroom or spare bathroom can also be use in the same manner.
