Breed Care Tips
All That Comes With An English Bulldog
When you bring home an English Bulldog puppy, you are accepting a dog who will be friendly, gentle, and loyal. English Bulldogs also tend to be protective of their families. This may sometimes make them territorial, and the breed has a stubborn streak, but with proper training and discipline, these traits can be shaped into something endearing rather than irritating. Illinois English Bulldog Breeders and families also love how well English Bulldogs get along with kids and other pets. Of course, every dog's personality is unique, but these traits are common to the breed.
How to Feed Your English Bulldog
Your dog's lifelong health depends on good nutrition from an early age. It is important to feed your dog the right food, in the right amount, at the right times. As your puppy grows, he or she will need different require different balances of nutrients and different calorie amounts from his or her food. Boxers should be fed a regular, consistent diet to prevent digestive problems. Consult your Illinois English Bulldog breeder and your vet for advice on choosing the best food for your English Bulldog. To minimize overfeeding and prevent behavior problems, establish routine feeding times and stick to the schedule.
The Vet and Your English Bulldog's Health
English Bulldog puppies from our Puppy Breeders in Illinois will deworm your puppy and provide his or her initial shots. It is up to you to continue your puppy's medical care with veterinary exams, vaccines, and other treatment as needed. Dental hygiene will make a big difference in your dog's health, so care for your puppy's teeth and seek regular professional cleaning. Learn about potential health risks to your puppy and how you can avoid them. If you have questions about your puppy's health, consult your veterinarian.
Grooming Your English Bulldog Puppy
English Bulldogs are very easy to groom and keep clean thanks to their smooth, short coats. You will need to brush your puppy regularly with a firm-bristled brush, and you should wipe the wrinkles around his or her face with a damp cloth every day, but you puppy will need to be bathed only when he or she is sweaty or dirty.
Playing and Exercise
Dog Breeders in Illinois and everywhere else know that English Bulldog puppies are little bundles of energy. Your puppy will be playful and energetic, but adult English Bulldogs tend to be calm and sedate as adults. At any age, your English Bulldog will need daily walks, but as an adult, your dog may not be inclined toward much more exercise. English Bulldogs are susceptible to overheating, so be careful not to over-exert your dog in warm weather.
