French Bulldog Breeders in Texas:  French Bulldog Owner review

If you are thinking of adopting a French Bulldog puppy, I hope this review will be helpful.

French Bulldogs are small-sized dogs that make really good companions to families (as well as single people, of course.) They are one of the most popular breeds in the world! They do not require too much space in your house or even apartment and are actually quite calm dogs (unlike many small dogs). They spend a lot of the day napping (unless they are still a puppy) so they are quite “easy” dogs to have. Relative to some other breeds, of course.

Taking care of your French Bulldog

They are actually quite easy to take care of. We wash our Frenchie when he seems dusty or dirty or when we have been walking in the rain or when he got himself in something smelly (which does happen regularly!). They don’t really have to be brushed because their coats are very short. There is also no need to take them to a groomer unless you are very particular about how shiny their coat is etc. (or plan on showing them!)

Health can be French Bullies’ weak side. They do have some breed-specific health issues such as breathing problems due to the anatomy of their nose. Even a healthy Bulldog will be quite noisy due to this. They breathe noisily and usually snore when they sleep. (That’s quite a bit of noise for such a small dog!) This is why Bullies don’t do well in the heat and it’s very important not to let your Frenchie to get overweight.

Allergies are another common health issue in French Bulldogs. Many dogs are allergic to various grains or even chicken! Usually, it’s easy to notice if some food doesn’t agree with your pup. They’ll have skin rashes, vomiting, diarrhea, eye discharge etc. (All of these or, more often, some of these symptoms). It’s important to be aware of potential allergies in your dog and only feed them what is safe for them.

In terms of weight and size, our French Bulldog weighs about 27 lbs and that’s pretty average. Girls will weigh less than boys. We try hard not to overfed our pup and not to give in when he begs for treats. He is fairly active (we are both cyclists and he gets quite a workout running after our bikes regularly!) but he gains weight very easily! (Like some people I know!)

When it comes to personality, our French Bulldog is a very happy, enthusiastic, outgoing and cheerful dog. He is also very curious and will get into absolutely everything we do. He needs to know everything, see everything. He is there when I am cleaning, cooking (of course!), or trying to work (I work from home).

He is very loyal to us, his family. He gets really stressed when one of us is out of town and he doesn’t see that person for a while.

He is also very stubborn. He knows plenty of commands and it’s obvious he understands what we tell him to do, but he just won’t do it if he doesn’t want to. Unless it’s for a treat! Then he’ll do all the commands he knows and even something random that no one has ever taught him just so he can get that bit of food. He is very food motivated!

When we scold him for something, he gets visibly upset. He’ll go and sit in the corner and will sulk for inordinate amounts of time! We never hit him or even yell at him, but he is very sensitive to the tone of our voice. And I guess he is also quite an actor.

We did have some issues with nervous urination when he was younger. He would pee whenever he got excited, which was when we had any visitors over, or even when one of us got back home from work. Thankfully that went away after a while.

What I really love about our Frenchie is how smart he is. He seems to understand so much of what we are saying! Especially if it’s about going for a walk, going to the park, etc. He also senses our tones of voice and always knows when he is doing something he isn’t supposed to. (Not that he would stop doing it!)

Taking care of your French Bulldog

He is also very brave! He is a tiny dog, but he is fearless when it comes to protecting us from any (usually perceived) danger. He will step between us and the (perceived) aggressor and bark and growl like a big dog. It’s funny but it’s also very sweet, to know that someone loves you this much! We have a little nice, and he thinks he is her babysitter. He will watch her at all times and will start whining or barking when he thinks she is getting in trouble.

I could probably name a few downsides of owning him, of course. As with any dog, issues and problems to crop up from time to time. One thing we somewhat struggle with is his snoring! He snores very loudly for such a small dog. We try to teach him to sleep in his dog bed in the hallway instead of our bedroom for this reason. It’s heartbreaking to not let him sleep near us, but at the same time we both work and need our sleep.

He also farts quite a bit! But that is mostly just very funny and cracks us up. He acts as comedic relief in our lives which we really appreciate! He makes a lot of other noises too – he eats loudly, and when we are on a walk, his breathing gets quite loud too so it sounds like he’s always croaking and sighing, and, well, we just got used to it.

Overall, this is a wonderful dog. They are smart, fairly independent, they don’t have much of a doggy odor and they are very loyal to their owners. As some of the downsides, I would say it’s noise and some of the health issues that you may encounter with this dog. Of course, all of the downsides are quite tolerable when you really love the dog.
