Before our puppies leave for their forever homes, all of our puppies will be seen by our Veterinarians for a usda certified health check. They are up to date on their vaccinations and dewormings. Every puppy comes with a little care package, a health guarantee and unlimited guidance and communication so we can help in anyway possible. Last but not least, they will come pre spoiled and loved!
French Bulldog Temperament
He's been called "the clown in the cloak of a philosopher," and this loveable little companion dog is exceptionally good-natured. He is particularly affectionate toward his master and the children, and can even be a bit possessive. They are excellent with children! He will need to be a part of the family and will want to be in close contact with you. Each "frenchie" possesses his own unique personality, but they are usually independent thinkers, intelligent, with a bit of a mischievous side.
French Bulldogs are usually well-behaved if trained to be. They are trainable, but stubborn, and do best when they are convinced that they are interested in the task at hand. Their favorite task, of course, is that of lap-warmer, and that requires little to no training. You will need to be willing to share your favorite chair. They are compatible with other pets. They are active, alert, and playful, but they don't require a lot of exercise. They will have short bursts of high energy, but these are interspersed with long periods of napping and lounging around. Because of their short nose, you have to be careful that you don't exercise them to the point that they overheat.
They can be territorial and protective, and will sometimes alert their owners to danger, but not all the time. Some frenchies never bark at intruders. They are typically a quiet breed and are not excessive barkers.
French Bulldog Care
Keep them cool - Their short noses make it difficult for them to regulate their temperature. If you take them outside, especially in the summer, make sure it is not for a long time as they can over heat.
Bodies of water - Most Frenchies cannot swim. If you have a pool, a dock, live on a lake, etc. please make sure your puppy is wearing a life vest and is never unattended.
Walking - Frenchies love to go on walks when it is not too hot. When walking your frenchie it is best to use a harness to keep them from choking and pulling.
Jumping - Frenchies are compact and therfore have short spines. Jumping on and off of things is jarring and compresses their spine when they land. Most IVDD instances are due to trauma from jumping. We have lots of stair and ramp recommendations.
It is important that you are consistent with everything you do. If you maintain how you feed, exercise, train, clean their eyes, ears and wrinkles with occasional baths and nail trimming, you will do just fine and your Frenchie will be happy and healthy.
We start the potty training process by going potty outside at about 6 weeks. Before they are 6 weeks of age they are box trained. When you get your new puppy home start house breaking immediately. Get him/her on a regular feeding schedule and make plenty of trips outside. When the puppy runs around like he/she is looking for something... he/she is. Take your puppy outside immediately (or to the designated potty area). Upon waking from sleeping, right after eating, right before bed time and anytime you just get home take him/her out.. Praise your puppy like crazy when he/she has went potty in the desired area, we make such a big deal out of our puppies going potty (in the designated area) that we call it a FRENCHIE PARTY! Accidents will happen. If you catch your puppy in the middle of the act rush him/her outside (or to the designated area). Every Frenchie has his/her own rate of learning, but they are usually potty trained by four to six months of age.
