Every Bulldog is different.
For example: some like to sleep in our bed; some have severe allergies; some can only go to the bathroom at exactly 3:03pm; etc. We can all agree that whatever the situation and circumstances, we love and care for our bulldog, and will do almost anything to make them happy. This makes us happy.
A win-win and a happy home
(*Please note: these are tips and suggestions. Please consult with your pet's veterinarian for overall pet health guidance)
Nutrition for a bulldog is key to a long, comfortable, happy life... and poop.
For bulldogs under 1 year of age, we recommend adding a little bit of organic goats milk to their dry food. It is extra protein and calcium for a growing puppy.
Bulldogs need their fruits and vegetables too! Substitute some strawberries or cooked broccoli for their treats - small pieces to avoid choking. (please use caution and be aware of any signs for allergic reactions)
As for their main food, whether it be dry food or wet food, please consult your physician for proper guidance about ingredients. Single protein and zero grain is known for being most ideal for easier digestion and results in less allergies.
They say "practice makes perfect". It's true - no matter what age your bulldog maybe, getting them to follow a command or trick takes a lot of practice and patience.
We here at The Bulldog Republic also believe that mentally stimulating your bulldog is very important.
How would one do that? Practice doing sign language when you are practicing commands and tricks. Sing the ABC song or count to 20. Try doing same commands and tricks in another language.
Of course, we highly recommend positive reinforcements in the form of tasty treats. We do not condone harsh words or physical abuse as forms of correction.
"Let's go play!" "Want your ball?" "Where's your rope?" Those are just a few of their favorite phrases. Spending time with your bulldog and playing with them - even for 5 minutes - is not only good for them. It's good for you too.
Studies show that playing with our bulldogs help us both relieve stress, improves our mood, helps us relax, and it is good exercise.
Do not overplay or over-exhaust your bulldog at any age. As soon as they start to show signs of fatigue, or even if they start panting and breathing heavy, it is time to take a break and get some water and rest. And that goes for the both of you.
Bulldogs are more prone to physical health problems due to their body type and breed history, especially if they are not purebred.
We also recommend to try to keep your bulldog inside and play as much as possible indoors. It can get too hot for them playing outside very quickly, and breathing can be a problem, especially if they have asthma, allergies, etc.
Please play with caution, but have fun!
It is always recommended for you to take your bulldog regularly for check ups. Do not miss appointments for vaccines and required shots. This will help, especially when they meet other dogs that may not be so protected.
For ailments or pain, consult your if you would like to take the more holistic approach and want to use natural remedies.
Consult with your vet about nutrition and diet. It is strongly recommended to avoid processed foods as much as possible. This factors into their overall health.
Bulldogs are known for their wrinkles. It is highly recommended to clean their wrinkles, folds, ears, nose rope, etc daily. Trim their nails at least once a month (or as often as you like).
We also strongly recommend using family safe household cleaners and products. Otherwise, they can cause major harm. Baking soda and vinegar work perfectly as natural alternatives.
As bulldogs get older, so does everything else, like their bones and joints, etc. It is recommended to consult your vet about possibly taking supplements or pet-cbd. Companies like Happy Again Pet and VetCBD have great products for what your bulldog may need.
