About French Bulldogs
The French Bulldog is a companion dog and requires close contact with humans. As a result, they should not be left alone for more than a few hours because these dogs experience separation anxiety if they are alone for too long. This is especially important when French Bulldogs are young, but this issue remains a concern into adulthood. Being alone for too long can cause a French Bulldog to behave in a destructive manner, which can include chewing on household items or furniture or even going to the bathroom in the house. The French Bulldog rarely barks, and if he does it is to draw attention, to point out that he needs something (like attention). This breed is patient and affectionate with its owners, especially with children, who are especially protected by the females. French Bulldogs can easily live with other breeds when the proper introductions are done.
They have fairly minimal exercise needs, but do require at least daily short walks. The French Bulldog is sometimes called “Frog dog” or a “Clown dog.” “Frog dog” is in reference to their wide round face and the unique way they sit with hind legs spread out. “Clown dog” is because they are known to be fun loving vivacious “clowns of the dog world.” Their calm nature makes them an excellent choice for apartment dwellers, as does their sensible attitude towards barking.
Their bulk and their compromised breathing system makes it impossible for them to regulate their temperature efﬁciently. The French bulldog has only a single short coat. This means the dog may easily become cold. Also, they will very likely need to have some extra covering inside during the winter in particularly cold areas. These dogs need warm clothing when out in cold weather. Precautions must be taken when exercising during hot or humid weather, as they are prone to heat stroke. It is also recommended that French Bulldogs who live indoors have access to air conditioning to regulate their temperature. In terms of grooming, the French Bulldog requires regular nail trimming, brushing, occasional bathing, and ear cleaning.
Chaos puppies are raised and spoiled in our home. With the help of our two children and other dogs they will be well socialized before going to their new home.
