French Bulldog - Care and Grooming

French Bulldog Temperament

The French Bulldog is an intelligent, lively, playful, and affectionate dog that makes for a delightful companion or family pet. This mild mannered breed loves people, loves to get involved with family play and activities, and loves life. Sweet natured, humorous, and entertaining, the French Bulldog is a very dependable, well balanced, amiable, and sociable breed. These dogs may be small but they have big personalities. Puppies are very playful and energetic, but will start to calm down as they grow older, although they will still enjoy playing and joining in with activities. The French Bulldog is a sensitive breed, but can also be quite stubborn at times. However, his gentle disposition, intelligence, and obedience means that he is well suited to novice owners as well as the more experienced.


The French Bulldog gets along well with other children as well as with other animals, although he may try and hunt very small animals such as rodents. With strangers most will be friendly and welcoming, although some can be reserved. The French Bulldog can make an effective watchdog as he will be vocal if he senses danger. These dogs are very active for their size, and this is something that should be watched, as it can mean danger - for instance, if your French Bulldog falls into a pool he is likely to drown, as most cannot swim. The French Bulldog, in short, makes a wonderful family pet and will get along with practically anyone and anything. However, these are not dogs that will make good exercise companion for those that are very active, as their short muzzles mean that they can get worn out quickly and may be prone to respiratory problems if over exerted.

French Bulldog Appearance

The French Bulldog has a small, compact, chunky build, and a typical pug-like face with a down-turned mouth that makes him look grumpy. However, you can see the intelligence, eagerness, and even a hint of naughtiness in the eyes of these dogs. The coat of the French Bulldog is close, short, and smooth, and the coloring includes cream, brindle, pied, and black and fawn. The weight of the French Bulldog is around 20-28 pounds and the height is around 11-14 inches.

French Bulldog Grooming

The grooming requirements for the French Bulldog are relatively low, which is ideal if you do not have that much time to dedicate to grooming. His short coat needs an occasional brushing to keep it looking good, and you should ensure that the wrinkles and folds on his face are cleaned, and that you check his ears are dry and clean to avoid infection and for hygiene reasons. This is a fairly low shedder on a seasonal basis, and so may prove suitable for those with allergies.

French Bulldog Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The life expectancy of the French Bulldog is around 10-12 years, and there are a number of health problems that are linked to this breed. The short muzzle of the breed means that over exertion can lead to respiratory problems, and they can be very sensitive to extreme temperatures, both hot and cold. Other issues to look out for include HD and elbow dysplasia, elongated soft palate, spinal problems, luxating patella, cataracts, allergies, and thyroid problems. The parents of the French Bulldog puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates, and screening for vWD should also be carried out.

French Bulldog History

The French Bulldog is classed as originating from France, although there is some controversy over the breed's true origins. These dogs became popular as raters in the nineteenth century, and then went on to become popular amongst artists and the like.
