Having a family with kids can be more delightful with a puppy. But puppies grow to become adult dogs and they grow at a faster rate than humans do. So, sometimes a dog can become too large for a kid and can be a hassle and a burdensome companion. But with French bulldogs, you don’t have to go through this predicament. They are relatively small in size even in their adulthood. Plus, if you have 2 French bulldogs and one is a male and the other is a female, you can be rest assured that even if they develop their own family, you won’t get stuck with a pile of dogs.

A French bulldog’s litter is relatively small. Most commonly, a female French bulldog would give birth to a litter with only 3 to 4 pups. Plus, many dog breeders would agree that breeding French bulldogs are very difficult, and that’s the reason why they are pricey and there are not really much of them around. So this means that it is very unlikely that French bulldogs owners will have problems with many of this active canine overwhelming their homes.

This is especially good for smaller homes. Plus, a small home with too much inhabitants can have a warmer environment, and if you live in an area where the weather is predominantly hot, your French bulldog may develop several health conditions. French bulldogs are more accustomed to colder areas, so as much as possible keep them cool at all times. If left in a warm environment, your French bulldog may develop heatstroke, breathing problems and certain skin conditions. Aside from what has just been mentioned, caring for a French bulldog is relatively easy. Even your kids can help you raise a French bulldog.

Another way to care for your French bulldog’s health and appearance Is by ensuring tht its clean and well groomed. A French bulldog’s coat is short and brilliant, it is also smooth and fine, and doesn’t over shed. Regular brushing will help maintain the brilliance of their coat and keeps dirt away, avoiding instances where the hair will be matted.

Other care required would be the same that are required for other dogs such as brushing the teeth with special dog toothpaste and toothbrush twice a week, occasionally checking and clipping their toenails, and taking them to their veterinarian for their regular checkup.

As discussed at the start, French bulldogs don’t grow too large for kids. They usually grow to about 12 inches from their highest point and are relatively light. There are two weight classes for this sociable dog breed with the lower weight class averaging 19 to 22 pounds and the higher with 23 to 28 pounds.

And there you go. There’s nothing quite like a well rounded family home with a dog or two by the side, and there’s nothing quite like a French bulldog as a family companion, friend, watchdog, and a family member.
