Positives

  • Good with children, but always supervised
  • Very adaptable, happy living in an apartment or house
  • Intelligent, easy to train but mischievous
  • Good choice for first time dog owners because Frenchies are easy to train and house train with the added bonus being they thrive on being in a family environment
  • Only need shorter walks several times a day rather than fewer long ones
  • Low shedding although like other breeds they drop more hair in the spring and the autumn
  • Wonderful companions because they are so amenable and eager to please without being overly demanding
  • Frenchies have become the most popular breed in the UK and for good reason. They are people-oriented, easy to train and extremely adaptable

Negatives

  • Expensive to buy a well-bred, pedigree puppy from established, reputable breeders
  • Can be stubborn and demanding at times
  • Prone to developing “Small Dog Syndrome” if they are too pampered
  • Can be overly possessive of owners and families
  • Need grooming every week paying special attention to folds and tails
  • Fold and flaps need checking and cleaning regularly either on a daily or weekly basis
  • Can be smelly at times if their coats are not correctly cared for
  • Prone to certain hereditary and congenital health issues
  • Do not tolerate being on their own for any length of time and often suffer from separation anxiety
  • French Bulldogs overheat very quickly in warm weather because of their flatter faces
  • Pied and White Frenchies can be deaf in one or two ears and dogs should be BAER tested when they are 6 weeks old
