Owning an English Bulldog Puppy

The loving and gentle English Bulldog is one of the most well liked companion dog breeds around the world. A breed of English origins, the Bulldog was first recognized as a non-sporting dog by the American Kennel Club in 1886. The original use of this breed was Bull baiting, which was eventually considered outlawed with the establishment of the Cruelty to Animals Act of 1835. This legislative act made the act of Bull and Bear baiting both illegal. The current role most suitable for the English Bulldog is as a companion or family pet, given their sweet demeanor.

Temperament: Can you say Sweetheart? While the breed makes an above average watchdog because of their courage, this breed is a loving companion at heart. The Bulldog is excellent with kids when socialized and should be very agreeable with guests of the house. The English Bulldog breed as a whole is heralded as one of the most well liked companion breeds in the world. The Bulldog should do well with other family pets as long as properly introduced and socialized. Owners should be aware of the breeds stance on unfamiliar dogs they need to be socialized early and often to curb any negative feelings towards strange dogs.

Trainability: The English Bulldog is relatively easy to train, but definitely takes some work for more complicated commands. If you are looking for a breed to sit, stay and play dead for treats, this is the breed for you. While they may not be the sharpest tool in the shed compared to some of the other highly intelligent breeds, they are easy going and apt to please their owner. Training this breed will be accomplished with less difficulty if you make the training reward based, as I have never seen a Bulldog that doesn’t love a treat.

Adaptability: This breed is generally agreeable to most environments. Although they easily adapt to a noisy and chaotic household, they are not very tolerant to extreme weather, whether it be hot or cold. They will also greatly appreciate it if you do not leave them alone for extended periods of time, as they are known as a “People Puppy” and crave human interaction.

Owner Experience: You do not need to be a professional dog trainer to own an English Bulldog. They are good for most novice owners because they are passive by nature.

Health: Although they are well liked and very popular, one must be aware of the potential health pitfalls with this breed. Some of the potential issues you can see with the breed is Cherry Eye, Entropion, or dysplasia. This breed also has a high risk for weight gain, so this should be monitored. An average Bulldog life span is between 8 and 12 years.

Grooming: The English Bulldog is an average shedder, so brushing him twice a week with a firm brush will be a good idea. Also, they can have a tendency to drool, so making sure you wipe their face off everyday can help assure they do not suffer irritation on their faces and between their wrinkles. Because of the amount of wrinkles they have, it is recommended that you clean between the wrinkles fairly often to avoid irritations. You should also make sure you brush this dogs teeth at least twice a week to avoid dental issues.

Activity Level: The English Bulldog is a generally low energy breed. They do not require a lot of exercise, but when they do play, they play hard! Because they can be intense when they do have an energy burst, an owner must be aware of overexertion. They can be very playful but do tend to tire out quickly.

Size: The English Bulldog is a short, stocky breed that should weigh between 40-50 pounds.

When purchasing an English Bulldog puppy it is essential to be aware of all characteristics of this breed. Looking for a puppy to bring into your family is an exciting process, but having the knowledge of what to expect with any dog is the key to successful integration into your family. A puppy is a huge commitment, so being knowledgeable about how to train and care for your English Bulldog puppy is particularly valuable.
