French Bulldog Temperament: What’s good or bad?
The French bulldog is one of the most popular dog breeds in the world. It was first created in France during the 19th century. Today it is recognized worldwide as a very intelligent and friendly companion animal. However, there are some drawbacks associated with this dog breed. These include:
1) They tend to be stubborn and have a tendency to get into fights.
2) Their ears may stand up when they sleep.
This causes them to wake up in the night. Therefore, they need extra time to fall asleep.
3) Their eyesight is not perfect due to their short snout and large head shape which makes them prone to glaucoma (which affects vision).
4) Their teeth are not perfectly straight.
5) They do not bark at all.
Some owners believe that barking helps keep them off guard so they will attack sooner instead of waiting until the last minute.
The French bulldog temperament is a combination of these disadvantages and other problems such as: lack of exercise, poor socialization, over training, and mismanagement by its owners.
Now that you have a better understanding of the French bulldog temperament, you can take steps to fix these issues and increase its well-being.
Take your dog to a pet store where they sell pet grooming items such as brushes, combs, toothpaste and toothbrushes. Brush their teeth on a daily basis.
You can also get them a doggie dental stick called ‘Greenies’. They are designed to fight plaque and tartar buildup.
