Wendy Laymon:  French Bulldog Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs

Is a French bulldog right for me?  There is no breed of dog that loves to be loved more than a frenchies does.  French bullogs are a loving, loyal, funny, happy companion.  They do not require a lot of exerise and will always be excited to see you.  Frenchies are very bonding and attach very strongly to their family.

How are French bulldogs with other animals? French bulldogs get along with other dogs but best with their own breed.  It is extremely important to socialize your new puppy with other dogs, cats, and a variety of animals. It is also important to introduce them to young children. French bulldogs love children and will be a "hit" when you take them to the park.  While socializing your frenchie away from the home be prepared to recieve a lot of attention!   Every one will want you to stop and let them pet your french bulldog.  And, of course, your french bulldog will expect all this attention!!  Frenchie love being the center of attention.

Why are french bulldogs so expensive?  French bulldogs are costly for a number of reasons. Some being that they are delivered by C-section.  Other reasons are because they usually have very small litters, three to four being the average size litter, and they usually have to be artifically inseminated to impregnate them.  These are a few reasons for the high prices.  If you find a french bulldog at a bargain price you may find that it is imported or from a puppy mill or is a scam.   

Are French bulldogs noisy?  French bulldogs are not big on barking.  They will, however, alert you  when someone is at the door.  The majority of french bulldogs do make adorable noises like snorting, snoring, or grunting.  Sometimes they even howl to get attention.  Frenchie noises are very amusing!

Do french bulldogs Drool, Snore and Fart?  No, they do not drool.  Englis bulldogs drool.  Many of the frenchies snore.  Some fart, but that has a lot to do with the diet you put them on.  Snoring, to a certain extent, is common in french bulldogs.  They have a short nose and short nosed dogs tend to snore more than the long nosed dogs of other breeds.  

Can frenchies swim?  NO!! Big NO!! For the most part they can not. Frenchies are very heavy in the chest area which causes their front end to sink.  Please, if you have a pool, have a fence around it.  You can allow your french bulldog in the water but only with a life jacket on them.   

Do you ship your french bulldog puppies? We do not ship cargo on the airlines.  The only way a puppy is shipped is with a companion.  The best way is for you to book a round trip flight, arriving and departing on the same day.  We will meet you at the airport with your puppy and you can fly home with your new little treasure! The other way of shipping, your french bulldog puppy would be accompanied by a "puppy nanny."  This is a certified puppy nanny that flies with your frenchie and you would meet them at the airport and pick up your little treasure.  Of course, you are welcome to drive to pick up your baby also.  We very much enjoy meeting our new frenchie puppy families.

What about vaccinations?  All puppies will be current on vaccinations and your veterinarian will set up a protocal for you for additional vaccinations.

ACA Breed Standard: French Bulldog


It may come to no surprise to many that this breed received its name from France, where they became extremely popular "lap dogs" to own back in the early 1800's. This breed is believed to of been bread down in size and appearance from the original English Bulldog and later crossed with local rat hunting dogs, which created the unique breed that is the French Bulldog we know today.


This breed is a small breed. In general, both males and females typically measure 10-12 inches in height and weigh an average of 20-25 pounds in weight. This breed is built small and stocky. Their square shaped head has rounded edges, creating an adorably framed face, with two small, triangular ears standing firmly on the top of their head. Their two large, round eyes are generally hazel to black in color. Their tail can be either straight when relaxed or curled upwards towards their back. This breed has a single layer, short hair coat that should always demonstrate a natural shine. Their coat is available in brindle, fawn, white, cream in all solids, color combinations and pie bald.


The French Bulldog has an incredible personality and giant fan club! Known for being "The Boss" in most house holds they live in, it is very important to set rules and boundaries within your living space for your Frenchie to learn to follow, to avoid any behavioral issues associated with "small dog syndrome". This breed is known for their human-like personalities, and 'dry sense of humor' glares they can give; they truly make magnificent family additions to the right families. This breed can be difficult at times to potty train, so they require a confident and consistent owner who only uses positive reinforcement training methods. This breed only requires a short daily walk and playtime indoors, which is what makes them suitable for apartment and country living environments. In general this breed is fun, loving, affectionate, calm and a true treasure to own.


This breed requires daily brushing and bathing when needed. This breed does shed.


** NOTE: We cannot stress enough that this breed is VERY heat and cold sensitive. Temperatures too hot/humid, or too cold are FATAL to the French Bulldog. Each year, owners are losing their beloved companions to lack of knowledge of this. Please fully educate yourself about this breed before considering owning one, to ensure that you can meet their requirements. Please note that this breed may require special vet care due to their physical features. A proper fitting harness and leash while outside at all times is recommended; or a properly installed fence to ensure safety of your dog while free roaming outdoors. Do not add a new dog to your home unless you are able to care physically and financially for the life of your new pet. All dogs originate from wolves (Canis Lupus). Each breed of dog was originally created by mixing different breeds together in an effort to bring forth certain characteristics. Once a breeder has created acceptable “breed characteristics” within their bloodline and these “breed characteristics” have shown to be reliably reproduced in the offspring for three (3) generations, the bloodline may be upgraded from the category of “foundation stock” to “pure-bred”. The same “pure-bred” breed standards vary from different continents, countries, territories, regions, breed clubs, and canine pure-breed registries depending on the goals of their breeders. Dog DNA testing companies can have accurate results for a specific bloodline of a small colony of dogs. However, there are tens of thousands of different bloodlines in the world which have not yet been tested for marker baseline results by Dog DNA testing companies as of 2017. For this reason Dog DNA testing companies do not guarantee the 100% accuracy of their breed lineage results and will also show different marker results for the same pure-bred breed in different continents, countries, territories, regions, breed clubs, and canine pure-breed registries depending on the goals of their breeder.
