French Bulldog Temperament

The French Bulldog is a playful, alert and affectionate breed. They are enthusiastic, curious, sweet and have a very comical personality. They fit well into a family environment and get along well with other dogs and household pets, given they have been well socialised as a puppy.

French bulldogs are intelligent so training is best achieved by being firm and consistent, and using lots of praise. It is important that the owner is aware of the type of care that is required for Frenchies to minimalise health issues, and prepared for the snorting, snuffling and flatulence that is generally associated with this breed.

French Bulldog Health Issues

Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome: A medical term that relates to multiple upper airway problems experienced in short-nosed, flat-faced breeds. These issues are due to the physical characteristics of these breeds, such as narrowed nostrils, an abnormally small windpipe or an overly long, soft palate.

Patella Luxation: An abnormally shallow groove in the knee, which causes the knee cap (patella) to slip out of position.

Hip Dysplasia: A common disease where a malformation in the hip joint results in the joint rubbing and grinding. This can lead to irritation, pain and impaired walking ability.
