Today we will be taking a look at the French Bulldog Temperament
If you want to have a happy pet you need to know something about his habits and needs. Luckily, French Bulldogs are not a demanding breed, and you should be able to provide them with everything they need to be content.
French bulldogs are a companion dog breed, meaning that they are very sociable, which doesn’t only mean that they get along well with people and other animals, but also that they need that contact and interactions if they are to be satisfied. They can be quite energetic, but that usually comes in short bursts and is followed by long periods of resting.
As such, they don’t require a lot of exercise, a short walk every day should do the trick. Take great care that the dog is not exposed to hot weather during that walk. Because of their short muzzles, they are terribly inefficient at cooling themselves and are very prone to suffering heat strokes.
They will respond very well to training as they are quite intelligent, but despite that, they can be a bit tough to housebreak (this is a common trait of many small dogs), so you should expect that and be patient and understanding with them.
They never bark without justified cause and are generally well behaved. Apparently, the only exception to that rule are dogs whose owners didn’t show enough authority to assert their dominance. Such dogs can develop a condition that is called Small dog syndrome and that is characterized by the dog thinking that he is the pack leader. He will behave accordingly – refusing to respect your demands, and sometimes even becoming aggressive. This is the reason why, even though you should always be kind and gentle with your dog, you have to make sure that the dog knows that you are the boss.
If you manage to prevent this condition from developing you will have a very affectionate and cuddly friend that will enjoy your company as much as you enjoy his.
