Why Choose a Bulldog for Your Pet?
The Bulldog is one of the most popular and widely loved breeds of dog in the world. There are a few characteristics in particular which explains why the Bulldog is such a favored breed, but more than anything this relates to their appearance and personality. The coat of the Bulldog is close and glossy, and it is of fine texture. This is favorable because you will not have to deal with feathering or curl. There is also a lot less shedding because they have such a close cut and thin coat.
Caring for the Bulldog is also relatively easy, and they do not have many concerning problems in regard to their health or wellbeing. You can typically feed them one standard food and they will be provided with the necessary nutrition. However, you will want to make sure that one of the first ingredients listed on the label is a meat product such as chicken or beef and not meat byproduct like chicken bones or feet.
They have a fantastic personality and they are loyal, affectionate and deeply devoted to their family. They make wonderful pets even in homes with younger aged children, and they will get along with other pets in the home but may react differently to other strange dogs and animals when you are out and about.
This is due to their embedded guarding abilities, which are good to have in a dog because they are always alert and on guard but will only bark when necessary, when they sense a danger or threat.
Training is still important with Bulldogs even though they have a great personality to begin with, generally since they have a tendency to be very stubborn and domineering. As the owner of a Bulldog you need to make sure they are aware of who is in charge.
How To Choose A BullDog
The bottom line is that although there are hundreds of different breeds of dog that you can choose from, Bulldogs are definitely one of the best. They are easily one of the most laid back and friendly dogs and make for a great family pet. Once you have decided that you do in fact want a Bulldog, the best idea is to take a bit of time and find a reputable breeder.
This is important because although there are certainly many legitimate and respected breeders but there are also many that are known as mass breeders who are more in it for the financial means than because they actually care for the dogs.
Make sure you ask a potential breeder a lot of questions before agreeing on doing business with them and have the provide you with the proper paperwork. A good breeder will be pleased that you are concerned with these sorts of issues and will never make you feel as though you are overstepping your bounds.
The best way to make sure your dog is healthy is with these checkups and make sure your puppy is healthy to begin with. If you buy from a breeder who is offering the puppy for under $1,000, then it is likely they have some health issues already; $3,000 and above is the good price for a healthy dog.
