Not really, though this depends on the dog. However, as a breed, Frenchies are less barky than many other small breeds.

Curious and playful, there’s never a dull moment when you have a French bulldog.  French bulldogs are sweet and love to cuddle, they also tend to appreciate their beauty sleep more than other dog breeds.

Yes we DNA everyone of our  breeding dogs.  We test for every disease that is known within the Frenchies.  Not just the tests we know they will pass.

No, they have their fair share of health issues.  This is why you need to buy from a registered breeder who does DNA testing and who can SHOW you the results of these tests.  Please do your homework when buying a Frenchie and dont buy on the basis of the cheapist one you could find.  There is often a reason they are so cheap.

Flatulence, or gassiness, is a common issue that many French Bulldogs suffer from. Farting in French Bulldogs is typically caused by a change in diet or something else the dog ate that isn’t sitting well with them. It can also be exacerbated when they eat their food too quickly, causing air to end up in the intestines.
Hey, you can always blame the dog!

French bulldogs can be easy to train but they can also be stubborn.  Consistency is the key with any training but they are smarter than you think.

French Bulldogs normally live between 10 to 14 years.  

French Bulldogs have ALOT of expenses associated with the breeding and raising of pups.  Breeding usually involves Artificial Insemination Procedures.  This then involves a lot of vet blood testing to know when to breed or not.  Then there are scans and tests during the pregnancy, followed by a C-Section birth if you have a successful pregnancy.  Once the puppies are delivered by C-Section, then the physical work starts with 2 hour feeding shifts for the first 1 to 3 weeks.  French bulldogs mums are well known for accidentally smothering their pups, mainly due to their size and inflexibility.  So as dedicated breeders, we take on this role with mum.  Also, the pups can have trouble maintaining their temperature, so are often placed in incubators.  The vet expenses and physical work required to raise a healthy and strong litter all add to the cost of a puppy.  Honestly, we all work for well below the minimum wages for the time it takes to raise a pup to eight weeks of age.

When you purchase a pet, then this is what it is.  A pet.  You are not to breed with a pet and should have them desexed around 6 months of age.

When you purchase a pup on Mains registration, then the breeder is agreeing to possible breeding rights with that pup. Only the best of the best should become future breeders.

Absolutely, a big fat YES.  We are always here for the lifetime of your puppy.

Each puppy writes their own rules on this.  Some can do it from 4 weeks of age and others from the same litter may not do it until 10 weeks of age.  But they all get there eventually.
