French Bulldogs in general are funny, happy, sweet natured, affectionate canines. The standard breed dictionary describes them as: Lively, Playful, Athletic, Alert, Easygoing, Bright, Keen, Patient, Affectionate, Sociable. All of which we agree on... for the most part. You see, every dog is different and displays a different personality very much like human individuals display more of a particular trait and less of others. We can describe a frenchie based on the majority but ultimately a dog of any breed is going to display behaviors that are taught and act depending on how that individual puppy was brought up and raised - again... similar to human babies.French Bulldogs can be stubborn when it comes to house training. Be patient, be consistent, and consider the use of paper training or puppy pee pads to get around the problem (although it's always best to get the pup outdoors). Start training your puppy the day you bring him home. Even at eight weeks old, he is capable of soaking up everything you can teach him. Don’t wait until he is 6 months old to begin training or you will have a more headstrong dog to deal with. If possible, get him into puppy kindergarten class by the time he is 10 to 12 weeks old, and socialize, socialize, socialize.
Many Frenchies are friendly with everyone, while others are politely reserved. French Bulldogs will bark to announce visitors, but are otherwise quiet dogs.
Usually peaceful with other pets (though some French Bulldogs will hunt small rodents), males may bicker with other males.
The French Bulldog is quite stubborn and can sometimes be challenging to train, yet also surprisingly sensitive, remembers what he learns, and responds well to early, patient, persistent training that utilizes food motivation. This sweet, friendly, and companionable dog is willing to please. As a clownish lap dog, the French Bulldog loves playing and enjoys entertaining its family. It is fond of snoozing with and cuddling its favorite person. Frenchies are very sweet and lovable, making great family and house pets. They may sometimes have a mind of their own in family matters. For the most part however, this breed is a socialite, getting along well with other people and dogs and guaranteed to make your life exciting with never a dull moment as this little dog will bring everlasting joy to the whole family. :)
