What is a French Bulldog like?
The naturally friendly disposition of French Bulldogs makes them one of the most popular companion dogs in Singapore. Loving dogs who craves for your affection, they desire to be loved by the owner. Their elation when this is achieved is highly evident.
However, these dogs can suffer from separation anxiety. Ideally, they like to have their owners in their sight for at least a few hours each day. As such, they tend to do very well in large households, especially those with children. In this way, there is at least someone who will always be with them, and show them the love they so desire.
Male French Bulldogs are generally more mischievous, whilst the French Bulldogs are a bit more docile, sometimes even a little timid. However, their personality is largely dependent on their environment and the training they are exposed to when they were younger.

Coexisting with a French Bulldog
The French Bulldogs come in a large variety of colours. You can see them in black, white, and several different shades of tans.
They also has a short, stocky body that gives a rather muscular appearance. Everything about them suggests an abundance of strength. They are built compactly, with short but strong legs. Not only that, they also have necks that are heavily muscled as well.
French bulldogs typically have bat-like ears, short noses, and a curious expression that they always wear. The skin around the head is famously creased and wrinkled.

Basic profile of a French Bulldog
01. Exercise Requirements
Whilst well-built, French Bulldogs surprisingly do not require a great amount of exercise. As such, a short walk everyday is more than sufficient to meet their exercise needs. They also relish the odd game of catch every once in a while. French Bulldogs also do well in agility training.
However, keep a close lookout for them whenever they are in the outdoors. They can easily run out of breath after exerting substantial energy. Watching after them ensures this doesn’t develop into anything more serious.
03. Potential Health Issues
Unlike other water retrieving dog breeds like the Poodle, French Bulldogs do not take to the water well. They are unable to swim, and so should never be left exposed to a body of water on their own.
Meanwhile, eye conditions such as juvenile cataracts, or entropion, where the eyelid is rolled inwards against the eyeball, is common in French Bulldogs. Take them for regular checkups at the veterinarian so that problems are detected at an early stage. Treatment administered early allows these dogs to lead generally healthy lives.
02. Obedience Training Style
Whilst French Bulldogs are naturally inclined towards strangers and other domestic pets, it is still important to enrol them in early socialisation classes.
Obedience training is also crucial in reining in the mischievous behaviours of the French Bulldog. They can be rather stubborn and strong-headed, so it is important for them to develop good habits at an early age. However, they are companion dogs at heart who are eager to please. This quality will serve you well, making them easier to train.
04. Nutritional Requirements
Similar to most other dog breeds, French Bulldogs can be prone to obesity. It is therefore important to monitor their diets faithfully. Dial back on their daily food intake if you notice them gaining weight over time.
However, quality can substitute for quantity. What this means is that if you start feeding them a higher quality of food, the quantity of meals they demand will start to drop. This can be an important tip to help reduce their chances of being obese, all whilst ensuring they have the sufficient nutrients intake.
