5 Things You Don’t Know About Frenchie Puppies

February 15, 2019

French bulldogs also known as “Frenchie puppies” make the cutest dogs you’d ever did see!

Here at Petland, we want you to know everything about the pup you are seeking to add to your family. Did you know Frenchies give birth by c-section due to their narrow hips – natural birth is almost impossible? Their litter is usually three to five pups on average. We will share some additional fun facts about French bulldogs to help you determine if they are right for you and your lifestyle.

What they eat is probably the most basic, but frequently asked question. It definitely makes sense to find out what a certain breed eats before making an investment. Frenchie pups should have a diet that is limited on grains. Limit giving your pup chicken as it can cause gastrointestinal irritation. Be sure to choose a higher quality food to ensure your dog is getting the best nutrients to be healthy. Petland feeds Health Extension brand dog food!

What do I use to walk them?

Use a harness instead of a collar to avoid choking them during walks. It teaches your pup not to pull when walking which can restrict their airways.

Are they good swimmers?

Make sure to use a life jacket when swimming with your pup as they are top heavy and make horrible swimmers!

Summer puppies or winter puppies?

Frenchie pups don’t like the heat. In hot temperatures, be sure to find shade if you’re out with your pup. Be sure to keep water to make sure they are hydrated as well. French bulldogs also have a short coat and can be sensitive to cold weather in the winter. Investing in a coat to wear while your Frenchie pup is outside may be your best bet.

Are they good family dogs?

Of course, this is definitely a deal breaker for any pet owner or potential pet owner. Fortunately, French bulldogs are easy to train, love affection, and are adorable.
