Things your puppy will need:
French Bulldog are sensitive to high temperatures and humidity. Since they are brachycephalic breed, they have trouble regulating their body temperature in hot weather. So, when the temperature climbs above 75°F, don’t let your dog stay outside for too long, especially if he is running or playing. Otherwise, he may literally overheat and die.
French Bulldogs are bad swimmers! Bulldogs in general are too top heavy, so they tend to sink easily. Don’t ever leave your dog unattended on the beach or near the swimming pool, unless he is wearing a life vest.
Create a regular schedule
Life can be quite hectic, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t create a schedule in the midst of all of the chaos. Take your puppy out at the same times throughout the day. For example, take them out first thing in the morning, after eating and drinking, after being in their crate or room, and before bed. It’s also important to feed your dog at the same times so they start to create habits… one of which is relieving themselves outside!
Teach the “Go Potty” command as early as possible
It can be difficult to teach a dog a new command, so you want to start the “go potty” command as early as possible. When your pup starts to do their business, tell them to go potty and praise them when they are done. The goal is to associate the action to the command so that they will perform the action when you say the command.
That’s right, no treats. Treats can cause Tummy issues for your new FURmily member. Don’t worry they don’t need treats to learn commands. You can use toys, praise and lovins, or pieces of their regular food. I know they are so cute and you want to spoil your new little cutie, but let’s put health first. If you decide to introduce treats as they get older try organic or homemade.
