Is a Bulldog the right breed for you?
You first need to ask yourself why you want an English bulldog. If you are looking for a dog that can walk miles, then the bulldog isn't the breed for you. If you're looking for a dog that needs no walking at all, then again the bulldog isn't the breed for you. It is true that some English bulldogs flat out refuse to go for a walk; they will lock their legs and tighten their shoulders so you can't budge them, but the majority of English bulldogs will require a daily walk of between 20-30 minutes once or twice a day and there are some bulldogs you can't walk far enough. If you are looking for an English bulldog specifically because you are at work all day and have heard the rumor that English bulldogs are couch potatoes - it's worth remembering that a bored English bulldog will chew. This is a breed that thrives on human company and all bulldogs are very good at working out what brings them attention. Like toddlers, English bulldogs will do something that gets them into trouble if they have decided your attention is being given elsewhere, usually chewing the chair legs, coffee table, cabinet knobs, or other wooden objects around the home. The bulldog probably isn't the right breed for you if you work long hours. If you work full time wait until your hours are reduced before taking on a bulldog. If you don't yet have children, don't buy an English bulldog as a baby substitute, you'll be surprised how many end up in bulldog rescue because a real baby came along. You may have decided on a bulldog because they are low maintenance…..Well - you know those cute little wrinkles? Those wrinkles need cleaning every day and remember - he can't reach his own backside…..Guess who gets the job of keeping that clean? That’s right and you will want to make sure you keep plenty of baby wipes on hand for the job. Finally, many choose the bulldog because of its reputation for being good with children and in general the bulldog gets along very well with children. But remember English bulldogs also have a reputation for their Sherman tank like mentality - getting from point 'a' to point 'b' is the same route…..Even when a 2 year old is sitting right in the middle of the path!!!
Still want a bulldog? Then it is important to find a reputable English Bulldog breeder. If you decide that a bulldog is the right breed for you then it is crucial that you research English bulldog breeders carefully before purchasing your English bulldog puppy. Anyone can put two bulldogs together, offer bulldog puppies for sale, and can call themselves bulldog breeders but that doesn’t make them reputable or responsible English bulldog breeders. Buying an English bulldog puppy is an important and long term commitment so you want to choose bulldog breeders that have the best interest of the dog, the bulldog breed, and you in mind.
