French Bull Dogs -
Activity and Health NoteMost French bull dogs are fairly active around the house, but still need a daily walk for good health, as well as to instill the structure they need from you - their pack leader.
Take care not to overstress them in warm weather when they can easily overheat.
They have a harder time breathing in general than other breeds because of their squished narrow nostrils and narrower trachea. Being one of the breeds subject to the brachycephalic airway syndrome, they are much more prone to respiratory challenges.
Hot, or hot and humid weather exascerbates the problem making it even harder to generate sufficient air and to stay cool.
Space Needs of the French Bull DogsThe Frenchies will easily adapt to house or apartment. But don't try to keep them housebound - the mental stimulation of getting out for a walk is necessary to all canines.
Is This a Good Breed For Children?French Bulldogs are best in families with children old enough to understand kindness and respect for dogs while still being able to show leadership. Also, small children sometimes want to pick dogs up and these little dogs are surprisingly heavy!
In any case, whatever breed is chosen to live with children, it is always the recommended policy to have an adult supervise interactions between them.
Companions For Seniors or Housebound Families?As companion dogs for the sedentary, senior or more housebound families, the French Bull Dogs are ideal. They love the close attention they get being with a family that is home most of the time.
Additionally, their low exercise needs and easier grooming make them more suitable for these type of households.
