Characteristics of the French bulldog puppies

To those of you who may not be familiar, there are many different breeds bulldogs – the English bulldog, the American bulldog, and the French bulldog. It is believed that the French bulldog descended from the English bulldog and later taken to France. Presumably because of this migration, French bulldogs suffer from a variety of peculiar diseases – uncommon in other breed of dogs. It is said that some of the diseases suffered by French bulldogs are hereditary. It therefore becomes necessary for owners of French bulldogs to have them medically test at regular intervals and more so, before using it for crossing. Otherwise, the chances are the French bulldog will probably beget unhealthy puppies and pose a threat to the breed as a whole.

French Bulldog Puppies are reluctant learners and you need to exercise a lot of patience while training them. You must evolve some signals and you them persistently for the puppies to grasp. One thing that needs to be said is they desperately need companionship and will feel psychologically let down without it.  The French bulldog interacts well with other dogs, but resent being around small children who may manhandle the puppies. Their soft skin, appealing looks, affectionate nature, pleasant behavior and overall agility make them ideal pets.

Bulldog puppies are not very much different from other puppies and they look small, cute and playful and sleep a lot. They crave for attention from their owners and they succeed in getting it as all owners love tiny little puppies. The real problem arises after your bulldog puppy grows up because a lot of people lose interest in providing company to adult bulldogs.

French bulldog puppy is a compact, physically well-built dog with a smooth coat, solid bone structure with a flat powerful muzzle and a pug nose. Lots of people buy cute puppies in the pet stores but feel disappointed when the dog grows up as sometimes they feel they did not buy the right breed. There are bulldog rescue shelters that collect abandoned and neglected bulldogs and find them new loving families. Bulldog rescue shelters are usually maintained by bulldog lovers who volunteer their time and money to find homes for needy bulldogs.

French bulldog puppies are found in a variety of pleasant colors. The puppies are in great demand and bought by people all over the world. French bulldog puppies that are black in color with brownish hue are usually called as Sea Brindles and these types are the costliest.

There are French bulldog puppies having a coat with regular fawn and black stripes pattern resembling Tiger’s skin. French bulldog puppy with a coat of pale cream color is called as Cream. There are various shades of cream from deep amber to butterscotch and palest gold. French bulldogs covered with black stripe and white areas are known as Brindle pied

The physical appearance of French bulldog puppies is characterized by large, wide and erect ears rounded at the top. The head is of square shape and the eyes are round and sharp and the tail is disproportionately short. French bulldog puppies prefer cooler climates as tropical climate may cause heat stroke and water should always be provided. They mature slowly and their life span ranges 12 and 14 years.

If you are in the market for a French bulldog puppy, you can search the Internet where there are plenty of ads offering French bulldog puppies for sale. However, it is to be noted that all the French bulldog breeders out there are not created equal. In fact even a family dog owner who owns a female French bulldog is a potential breeder when he decides to put his bitch out for mating. Find your perfect French bulldog puppy for sale from any reputable and reliable French bulldog breeder listings.

10 Things to Consider When Buying a Bulldog

10 Things to Consider When Buying a Bulldog

Many people enjoy owning dogs. Whether it’s because they grew up with them, need them for work and/or protection or just want something cute to hold and love. Whatever the reason may be, there comes a time when you must decide (if you haven’t decided already) on which breed of dog you would like to own. Bulldogs are a very popular choice among dog lovers. People choose the bulldog for a variety of reasons. They can be big cute teddy bears. They can serve as good protection. They are great family dogs and there are many types of Bulldogs to choose from as well. Among these types are English Bulldogs, French Bulldogs, American Bulldogs and a few other rare Bulldog variations. Once you have decided on which breed of bulldog you want, how do you determine then exactly which bulldog to buy?

For instance, say you have decided that you would like to buy an English Bulldog; here are some things to consider before making your purchase.

1.       Body Type: There are many types of bulldog shapes ranging from stout to blimpy. Some are low to the ground. Some have skinny legs. There are even a huge variety of head shapes to choose from. If you don’t know which shape bulldog you want, the best thing that you can do is to check the AKC standard and try to pick out the one that most resembles it, but then again some people want their bulldogs to have something slightly unique about them.

2.       Size: How big do you want your bulldog to be? Do you want the runt of the bunch or the big daddy of the group? When you see a bulldog you like, ask the owner how much the bulldog weighs and look for bulldogs who’s mothers and fathers are in that range. A bulldog’s weight range is wider than in most other breeds.

3.       Color and Spotting: What color bulldog do you want? An all tan one, a white one with a spot on the tail, half and half or a grey or brown one? This can be the most important decision a potential owner can make, for aesthetics is almost everything nowadays. Although when you start looking at all of the cute little bulldog pups, you start to not to really care what color they are and appreciate each ones uniqueness.

4.       Sex (male or female): Do you want a little girl bulldog pup or a bully boy? Rumor has it that girls are easier to train and that boys have less emotional issues. Then again they’re just rumors.

5.       Bloodline: How important is it to you to have a dog with historic bloodlines filled with purebreds and champions? It is best to look for full AKC registered English Bulldogs with parents that have championed at dog shows. When a dog has championed, he has proven to enough judges that he is close to the original bulldog standards and is ideal for breeding to keep the awesome breed alive. When you buy a dog with no papers, there’s a good chance that the dog isn’t a purebred bulldog and could be contaminating the bloodlines.

6.       Breeders: What do you know about the breeders? Did they breed the dogs too early? Have they bred bulldogs before? Are they reputable? Are they a puppy mill? Are they a typical American family? Are they breeding to make a profit or are they breeding because they love the breed and aim to make the best English bulldogs they can? This is sometimes the most important thing to consider, for where your dog comes from can go a long way towards a right or wrong direction.

7.       Healthy: Of course, we want a happy and healthy bulldog. But how can you tell how healthy your bulldog is going to be? This goes back to who’s the breeder.  Are the puppies going to be vet checked and up to date on their shots? Ensure that your bulldog is up-to-date on its shots and if possible ask to see the doctor files of the puppy’s parents.

8.       Shipping: Are you ok with your bulldog flying in a plane for a few hours and meeting you at the airport? If so, then communicating with the right breeders is of tremendous importance. The breeders may ask you a million questions because they’ll be “shipping” their little puppy to you. That just shows that they care. Some care so much that they purposely don’t ship during some parts of the year, in particular the summer months, because it can be too hot for the little guys. Most people prefer to see and hold their puppies before making the final purchase. That is the traditional way and probably the securest way of ensuring you get the dog of your dreams.

9.       Age: How old should the puppy be before you bring him home? Many scientists and breeders fight over the best time to separate the puppy from his or her family. Regardless of what they say, a puppy should remain with its mom for at least 8 weeks to feed. However, 12 weeks is probably best because that 3rd month is when they can learn a lot from their parents on how to be a dog in a human world.  Think about the puppy and the rest of its life and try to avoid being so anxious to get him or her that you rush things. Patience is a virtue.

10.   Are You Ready to Be An Owner?  Before making the final decision to get a dog you must really ask yourself, do I really want an English Bulldog or even a dog at all? This is a huge question to ask yourself. When you buy a dog, you are saying;

·        I am willing to devote my life to making sure that the life of this creature is happy and healthy.

·        I am willing to clean up poop and pee several times a day.

·        I am willing to take the chance that my dog will wreck my home?

·        I am willing to set aside a monthly budget for the next 10 years for my dog’s vet bills and food. 

·        I am responsible for how my dog interacts with other dogs and people.

Having a dog is a big responsibility that some people overlook because they are too caught up in the “cuteness” of the puppy. Before you buy a dog, think about the possibility of one day having to move and having to get rid of your dog and putting him or her into a shelter. If you feel that there’s any possibility of that happening within the next 10 years, don’t even take the chance of giving that dog a life that could possibly end with being put to sleep. I don’t mean to finish off on a bad note but there are many puppies being put to sleep everyday because owners don’t fully think about providing a forever home to their puppies. So please, think before you buy.

So now you have it, 10 things to consider when buying a bulldog. Now go find that bulldog you’ve always wanted and give it the wonderful life it deserves!

House training English Bulldogs / Potty and crate training Bulldog puppies

House training English Bulldogs / Potty and crate training Bulldog puppies

CRATE TRAINING:

By putting your Bulldog puppy in a crate you are giving him or her a sense of security and a place they can call their own. Dogs actually like having a “den” to cuddle up in. By putting your Bulldog puppy in a crate while you are gone it will also give you peace of mind knowing that they are in a safe place, away from harm, and not doing any damage to your belongings or themselves.

Crate training will also help with potty training. Make sure you put Bulldog puppy on a regular schedule for meal times & potty breaks and use the crate when you are gone or need your pet to rest. Bulldogs will typically not “go” in their home. They like to keep it clean and will hold it until you can take them outside to eliminate. Remember to always praise your Bulldog puppy when he or she eliminates in the area you want him/her to outside.

Bulldog Puppies have very small bladders so they cannot physically hold it for very very long. I would suggest that you take your puppy out every 2 – 4 hours. As your puppy gets older, naturally they will gain the bladder control and be able to hold it longer. Eventually this time should increase to 8 hours or more.

Another thing to consider when purchasing a crate is to make sure that you buy a crate big enough to accommodate the full growth of your pet. When your pet is a puppy and you are crate training, make sure that the crate has a divider panel. You can adjust the placement of the divider panel so that the puppy does not have full use of the crate thus creating the “den” feeling that will make your dog feel comfortable and cozy. In this situation the dog will not want to go in its den and will keep the area clean. If you give the puppy the full area of the crate it may be too large and the dog will make one area of the crate his potty area and the other area as his sleeping area. Adjust the divider panel so that your Bulldog puppy has enough area to get up and stretch but not enough room to eliminate. I like the life stages crate you can view it here: http://www.champbulldogs.com/bulldogbooksupplies.htm

Crate training your Bulldog puppy or dog is just a smart thing to do for you and your new bullie baby. It will give you the sense of security and peace knowing that your pet is not getting in harms way while you are away

 

HOUSE TRAINING:

So how do we house train our new Bulldog. What if he or she just doesn’t seem to get it? Believe it or not, it’s simple.

I have two key words for you:

Confine and Observe.

While there is a great deal to know about food and water scheduling, timing can vary from dog to dog. (Feeding only two times daily “first thing in the morning” & again around “4 – 6pm in the evening” is a good start. Try to limit water after 7pm.) Now w e’ll just concentrate here on the main concept which is to confine your Bulldog dog to an appropriately sized crate when you cannot observe him.

A properly sized crate is large enough for your Bulldogdog to stand up and turn around, but hardly bigger than that. If you have a puppy in a large crate, he’ll think he’s got a bedroom with a bathroom built in. He’ll wee in one corner and sleep in the other.

The correctly sized crate consists of bedroom only with no “bathroom.” So if your crate is too large, go to the pet store and purchase a crate divider so you can temporarily reduce the accessible area.

Your Bulldog should be in his/her crate unless you can observe him 100%. This means that when your Bully is loose, he/she has your undivided attention. Consider attaching a 6 foot light cord to the collar so you can more easily locate the dog, and prevent her from leaving the room without you. Simply step on the cord to stop him/her.

At the first sign your Bulldog puppy needs to go, whisk him/her outside. Those signs include circling, sniffing, anxiousness, whining among other symptoms.

When you’re not observing your bully puppy with full attention, you confine her/him to the crate. That being said, you do need to ensure your dog has liberty periodically so he’s not all day in the crate. By being diligent now, you’ll be able to give your Bulldog years of liberty with no worries. So it’s well worth the investment in time at this stage.

Be sure you spend time playing with your Bulldog puppy, and also let him or her wander outside the crate. Avoid tossing your bully in the crate as punishment. Alleviate your guilt feelings by placing toys in with him/her.

This method makes it impossible for your bulldog to have an accident. You’re either right there to take him/her out, or he’s in the crate where your bulldog normally won’t want to go. When you’ve had a month with no accidents, you can begin to let you bulldog earn a little more liberty, five or ten minutes at a time.

That means he/she can be out of your sight for a few moments at a time. But only a few. You want to build slowly on a record of success until your dog literally forgets that the house ever contained a bathroom.

For each week with no accident, you can give your bully a few more moments of liberty at a time. However, if there is an accident, go back a step, and reduce that liberty. One accident in the house erases progress made for the several previous days.

Confine and Observe your way to house breaking success. In the course of just two or three months, you’ll have a dog you can trust in the home. It’s going to be worth the effort!getting hungry?

TO or NOT to use puppy training pads. If you use pads it will be harder for your puppy to understand it must go potty outside.

Potty training a dog is one of the most frustrating things you will have to do. Take heart in the fact that once your dog gets the potty training, you won’t have to teach it again. In many ways, potty training can be rewarding too. Not only can you help your bullie to stop making messes on your favorite carpeting, but you can develop a strong relationship of trust and bonding with them to.

Here are 5 steps to make potty training successful in your home.

1.Use a crate. Crate training is very effective. A crate is used to allow your pet to have a place to sleep and teaches them to control their bladder. They won’t soil their bedding. Then, when it is time to get up and go out, you can easily do just that. The bulldog learns from the start that you control potty time.

2. After meals, give your bulldog puppy 15 minutes and then take them out. Food is a trigger not only to eat but also to go. When it comes to potty training success, allow your pet to get outside when the urge is approaching. What’s more is that you shouldn’t leave food out. Put it down for them at the designated time and allow them to eat for 15 minutes to 30 minutes and remove the bowl. Soon he will learn and that again allows you to control potty time.

3. At Champbulldogs.com we always pick a potty spot. Select the area of your yard that you want your pet to go in. Take them to that spot every time to go. This will help your puppy to learn that when he needs to go, he needs to come here. What’s more is that the smell of urine is yet another trigger to your pet to go.

4. Remember that rewards need to be emotional, and therefore it is more successful to give them a reward of a patting and rub down then it is for you to hand them a treat. Also, treats are food which triggers potty time again!

5.Reward success, and limit punishing accidents. Although you will be angry and you will want to punish your Bulldog remember Bulldogs respond much better to love.

Caring for your bulldog is hard work, but very rewarding! When it comes to potty training, success will come much faster when you install these five tips into your program! Best of luck potty training! Champbulldogs.com

Tillman the skateboarding bulldog from the iphone commercial. All clips are from January 2007. Tillman was a little over a year old at the time and is a much better skateboarder now. Tillman does not belong to me, to find out more about Tillman contact Mike Maguire sportsagent82@yahoo.com A little history of this first video. I Filmed the video using a just purchased Panasonic Lumix TZ1. I was bicycling through Venice Beach California when I came upon the skateboarding dog. This was probably the only time I used the Lumix’s wide screen movie mode. I suspect one of the biggest reasons my video was selected, second only to the awesome Tillman, was not much user generated 16:9 content was available on youtube.(iphone is 16:9) Originally the first video had the soundtrack “Giving In” by linkin Park. Once the video appeared in iphone commercials I panicked and removed the video from youtube because of the attention and I had no rights to use the song. As time approached for Apple’s release of the iphone with youtube, youtube contacted me and requested I reinstate the video without the soundtrack. Youtube wanted users to be able to view the skateboarding dog in the store and after purchasing their iphone. Unfortunately youtube gave me only a few hours to re-edited video before the iphone release. The original background sound on most of the clips was ruined by hysterical laughter from a woman watching Tillman so I cut and pasted sound in from other parts of the video to cover
