An all-around vivacious, playful, outgoing and dependable dog! In addition to being an ideal companion, the French Bulldog almost demands human contact and does not like to be ignored.
Having inherited some of the Bulldog stubbornness, the French cousin is a bit more cooperative and will eventually respond to obedience training. Exercise patience, consistency and gentle praise with no aversives, as harsh treatment will squash this breed's sweet spirit.
An almost-perfect little dog otherwise, Frenchies can be at risk for many unforeseen dangers due to their unique build with heavy head and squat body. They can not swim properly, with many lost in drowning incidents. Additionally, they are deceptively top heavy and clumsy for some to lift. As important to be aware, the structure of the face and nose does not regulate temperature efficiently, therefore protection & care is necessarily in the heat and cold, as Frenchies can also become moody under such discomfort.
