Haircoats and grooming

Victorian bulldog coats are solid white, brindle, red or fawn. They shed an average amount of hair, meaning that they don’t require regular grooming, but weekly deshedding is recommended. If you’re not comfortable grooming your bulldog you can employ the services of a professional groomer. Baths can be given up to twice a month, with wipe downs or spritzes in between.

Temperament and training

These dogs are easy going and fit well within a family. Their loyalty and obedience make them popular with pet owners, with many of them keeping them as guard dogs. Although they may look intimidating, they are very docile and loving. Their athletic body requires regular exercise in order to keep them in shape. Although a small yard would do, at times you may need to walk them in the park and play around with other pets and children both as a socialization process, but also for keeping it in a good shape.

Things to watch out for

Victorian bulldogs are best suited for moderate climates, therefore they need to be in a cool place, and they normally find it difficult to cool down in hot areas. Indoor environments are the best but they also need sunshine especially when it is not very hot. High temperatures make the dog uncomfortable and should be avoided as much as possible.
