French Bulldogs are very similar in appearance to breeds like American Bulldogs, Pitbulls, and Boxers. These are dog breeds known for their inclination to aggressive behaviors.
It is therefore a common misconception the Frenchies are also aggressive. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Here are some of their personality traits for some perspective.
French Bulldogs are super gentle dogs that are not known to be aggressive. So no, you cannot get a French Bulldog for protection purposes. They are simply too mild-mannered and sweet for the job. However, this trait makes them great dogs for homes with children.
French Bulldogs are highly affectionate dogs that are big into cuddling. They tend to form very strong bonds and may display clingy behavior especially towards human companions who feed or play with them a lot.
French Bulldogs are not the type of dog that you leave alone for too long. They are happiest when there is someone around to play with them, preferably their human best friends. However, they will be ok with pet-sitters or even in the company of other pets.
Leaving them all alone on the other hand is never a good idea as they very easily develop separation anxiety.
French Bulldogs may not be the smartest of all dog breeds but they are clever enough to train and live with peacefully. Unfortunately, they tend to be very stubborn which could make training a bit difficult.
It will cost you about $500 for professional training of the puppy Frenchie. However, with patience and the right tools you could do it yourself. For this, we recommend Brain Training for Dogs for tips and tricks to help you successfully train your pooch.
