French Bulldog Temperament

Breeding for temperament is as important to an ethical, responsible breeder as breeding for physical health. No one wants an unbalanced dog.

French Bulldogs are known for their sunny, happy and silly personalities. They are very playful and love their families with a passion.

Don’t expect your French Bulldog to make a good guard dog. Although they are not prone to barking, they may bark briefly to let you know there is someone at the door, or in play. But in many cases, a Frenchie will ask anyone to let them lick their face, get a pat and even a belly rub!

French Bulldogs can be stubborn, like many bulldog breeds, and sometimes house training can be a bit of a challenge. Patience, positive reinforcement and routine are crucial to successful house training for your Frenchie, and it should start as soon as possible.

Yes, sometimes hyperactive, or dominant French Bulldogs can be found; behaviours can be influenced greatly by a French Bulldog’s home environment and treatment, but it is crucial to buy from a breeder that makes breeding for temperment a top priority with their dogs.

Frenchies were bred to be companion dogs, to live indoors and be part of family life. They do not do well if left alone for long periods of time. French Bulldogs are NOT backyard dogs to be left tied up and forgotten. They will suffer both mentally and physically.
