The Pros and Cons of Owning French Bulldog
by Pet Qwerks Toys on March 17, 2019
French Bulldog is a very adorable pup to cuddle up with. But like any other pet, people want to know what they are getting into. So if you are looking to get a French Bulldog and need to know about what are the ups and lows you will have to deal with, then you have landed at the right place.
Pros of getting a French bulldog:
1. They don’t make a lot of noise
Okay, they might snore, snort, grunt and talk a little, but they do not bark as much as the other of the noisy small breed dogs. But if they do bark, don’t consider them as throwing tantrums. It means that they are going through some weird emotions such as fear.
2. They don’t require a lot of grooming
Their shiny and shirt coat does not require much of grooming to remain healthy. You can just do away with a quick brush which helps distribute the natural oils and remove any loose hair.
*Their shed is also minimal, so you don’t have to worry about that all the time when you have guests coming over or when you are wearing a fancy dress!
3. They are great companions!
French Bulldogs are known to have a healthy balance of enjoying time inside the house, while resting and cuddling, and out of the house, having an enjoyable and energetic interaction with their human family as well.
4. They don’t require heavy exercise routines
These little cuties do not require a lot of exercises. Only a 15-minute daily walk is all they need to maintain their physical and emotional health.
Cons of getting a French Bulldog:
1. Breathing Issues
Because of their flat-face and short snout, they are vulnerable to have breathing complications, and this anatomy also makes them prone to heating up during hot and humid temperatures.
2. Other health issues
They are also seen with several eye conditions and skin allergies also. The later calls for expensive foods to save them from allergic reactions.
3. Excessive Drooling
Their short snout and flat face make them struggle a lot to cool down, so as a way to do that, they drool excessively. This is their way of getting rid of the heat. However, this is not something that is only exceptional to them, a lot of other breeds of dogs are prone to drooling as well.
4. Costly creatures!
French Bulldogs are really expensive. One usually purchases them for anywhere between $1500 and $8500. And when you factor in the expenses of food, vaccinations, grooming, and veterinary care provision, then the cost increases astoundingly.
4. They snore…
We are not going to hide, they are loud snorers! These poor souls can’t help it though, it’s their anatomical suffering. There are ways to reduce their snoring such as changing their bedding, or taking care of their sleep position, or leaving a window open at night, so there is proper ventilation.
