Thanks a lot!
I hope our new frenchie owner reads your advice!
They can be alone for a few hours, like any other dogs. Though not too long. You see, French bulldog’s purpose is to be a companion and there is nothing they adore more than being around their human.
If you’re at work 8 hours a day, you might consider a dog walker or doggy day care.
Young puppies can’t hold it longer than 3-4 hours and will need more attention, since they still require training and lots o exercise and playtime.
Also, may I suggest adoption? There are lots of wonderful rescues out there that need a forever home. If this is an option, I can hit you up with some links.
Experience of not one or two, but multiple french bulldog owners I’ve been in contact with shows that proper individual diet DOES make a HUGE difference. But thank you for your comment anyways.
Well, bad gas is common thing and it also means you most likely will have to change his food. It might take a while to figure out what he is allergic to and find a proper combination. Grain free, poultry free, some brands have special foods for bulldogs - try these first. Switch slowly by mixing with usual food gradually increasing new food amount. If after 2 weeks you see no change, replace the food again.
Also a table spoon of plain yogurt once a day might help with digestion. Add fish oil to his diet as well, it helps with skin and fur and is generally recommended for frenchies. If gas situation doesn’t improve - consult your vet!
Second thing. Harnesses are better than collars, but I would recommend to keep a collar with tags on anyways at all time. There are enough cases of missing pets to take a risk. If your puppy finds his way out, maybe you have to try another size or brand of harness. “Puppia” gets very good rates from frenchie owners.
Let us know how it goes!
