Bulldog - Care and Grooming

Bulldog Temperament

The Bulldog is a gentle, easy going, and affectionate dog, with a wonderful nature, a comical outlook on life, and a really entertaining personality. The national symbol of Great Britain, the Bulldog is known to be extremely amiable, friendly, and loving, and loves to spend time with his family. Known to be one of the most dependable breeds around, the Bulldog makes a wonderful family pet, and is fine for the more inexperienced dog owners as well as those with experience. The Bulldog can have a stubborn streak, but is also a very docile breed with plenty of affection and devotion to give to his family.

 

The Bulldog is known to be excellent with children and will get along with other pets too, but be way of his jealous streak of another animal tries to take his food! His sweet nature and comical attitude makes him a big hit as a family dog. This is a breed that has inbuilt laziness, however, so don't expect your Bulldog to go romping around and playing Frisbee with you. It is important to exercise him for health reasons, but this should be along the lines of gentle strolls and walks in cooler weather. With strangers the Bulldog may be reserved, although some will be quite friendly. He is a sensitive and intelligent dog, and is ideal as a pet in a relaxed household.

Bulldog Appearance

The Bulldog has something of a comical appearance, with a short, stout body and a rather glum and reproachful expression. The skin on his face falls in folds, and his legs are set wide apart. Although short and stout, he also has a sturdy build. The coat of the Bulldog is short, sleek, and tight fitting, and the coloring can be white, red, fawn, brindle, piebald, or fallow. His ears are small and hang folded to the side of the head. The height of the Bulldog is around 14-15 inches, and these dogs weigh in at 40-60 pounds.

Bulldog Grooming

When it comes to looking after the coat of the Bulldog the requirements are not demanding, and you simply need to brush the sleek coat of the Bulldog on an occasional basis. The Bulldog is a medium shedder, so you may need to brush a little more regularly when he is shedding more heavily. You will also need to ensure that you clean the folds on his face carefully to prevent infection, as well as the skin around the tail.

Bulldog Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The lifespan of the Bulldog is relatively short compared to some other breeds, and is around 8-10 years. There are a number of health problems that can affect this breed, and this includes heart problems, thyroid problems, ectropion, entropion, cataracts, elongated palate, a range of eye disorders, inverted tails, recessed tails, stenotic nares, and skin problems. Being short haired means that the Bulldog should not be exposed to extreme temperatures as this can be dangerous, and neither should he be over exerted as his short muzzle can mean that he develops breathing problems under these circumstances. The parents of the Bulldog puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.

Bulldog History

The Bulldog originates from Great Britain, and has a long history, now reigning as the national symbol of Great Britain. These dogs have been used for many purposes over the years, from guarding and hunting to baiting and fighting.
