Breed Info

The French Bulldog is a companion dog. The breed is small and muscular with heavy bone structure, a smooth coat, a short face and trademark “bat” ears. Prized for its affectionate nature and balanced disposition, they are generally active and alert, but not unduly boisterous.

Family pet

Frenchies get along well with children, elderly people and young couples. They are a perfect family pet.

Bred for companionship

If you want an outdoor dog who can be left alone for long periods, the Frenchie is not the breed for you.

Excellent housekeeper

French Bulldogs make excellent watchdogs and will alert their people to approaching strangers, but it's not their style to bark without cause.

French Bulldogs do not need a lot of exercise, but they do need daily walks to keep them at a healthy weight.

We breed very carefully and have our dogs tested, we work hard with Inqaba Biotec, Africa’s Genomics Company (Anushka) and Fourways Animal Hospital. We do have our tests certified as we breed only with the best according to the breed, which reduces the risk significantly, but unfortunately this is still not always a guarantee. These are live Animals, so many things can go wrong . You need to get pet Insurance like Medipet if you own a French Bulldog. French Bulldogs are a man-made dog breed, they do have problems like any other breed or human. They are not the type of breed for just any one.


French Bulldogs do not need a lot of exercise. They have fairly low energy levels, although there are exceptions to every rule. To keep their weight down, however, they need daily exercise through short walks or play times in the yard. Many French Bulldogs enjoy playing and will spend much of their time in various activities, but they are not so high energy that they need a large yard or long periods of exercise.


Recommended daily amount: 1 to 1.5 cups of high-quality dry food a day, divided into two meals.


French Bulldogs are fairly easy to groom and need only an occasional brushing to keep their coat healthy. They are average shedders. Begin grooming your Frenchie at a young age and teach your puppy to stand on a table or floor to make this experience easier on both of you.
