Personality Traits & Trainability ★
French Bulldogs are playful, intelligent and affectionate. They are happiest when they are around people, especially their owners, and are generally good with other animals. Frenchies are intelligent and easy to train but their free spirited nature can result in some stubborn behaviours so they need motivation - treats - when learning a new behaviour. Frenchies need strong leadership from their owner and can feel insecure without it. Although they are generally quiet dogs, French Bulldogs are good watch dogs and will alert owners to intruders.
Frenchies have very short nasal canals which results in them snorting, snuffling and grunting. Their short noses makes anaesthesia more dangerous and makes French Bulldogs more susceptible to overheating when there is a spike in temperature, meaning they do not cope well in hot weather. In addition, Frenchies are prone to spinal problems, heart defects and eye problems due to the prominent position of their eyeballs.
Fun fact ❤
Due to their heavy heads, French Bulldogs cannot swim. So if you’re planning a life on the water for you and your pup, this is not the breed for you!
