Training for French Bulldog Puppies

Training is essential

The Frenchie requires minimal exercise but they do enjoy learning.   There is some debate about crating a puppy or a dog.  A crate trained puppy is easier to housebreak and it helps to give the puppy much needed time alone (we call this Nap Time).   A dog regards its crate as its den, a safe haven and home.  If you travel, the dog is safest in a crate in your vehicle and also when you stay in hotels or visit other people. If the puppy should be ill or injured and needs to be kept quiet, this is much easier if he is happy in a crate. In warm areas, cooling pads and fresh water should be placed in the crate too. You should take your French Bulldog to training classes (socialization) as soon as your veterinarian feels they have had the proper immunizations.  This will help your puppy get accustomed to being around other dogs and people, will teach you how to communicate your wishes to your puppy, and will teach your puppy basics like walking well on a lead, sitting, staying, and coming on command.

Traits of French Bulldog Puppies

A lap dog and constant companion

Although cute and cuddly-looking, a French Bulldog has a big personality and needs an adequate amount of training to make it a civilized companion. Contrary to the stereotype as “stubborn”, most Frenchies strive to please their owners and are therefore very trainable with the proper motivation (usually food).  Some of the traits that are not always discussed are Frenchies have the tendency to fart (a lot). 


 Starting off right and repetition is the key to success.  Please remember to use positive re-enforcement (food, praise, toys)
