French Bulldog Exercise Needs


The French Bulldog loves long walks but can go with short walks.

French bulldogs normally tolerate frosty weather. The mobile and playful bulldog floats on the snow and does not seem to feel cold. This is helped by thick, thick fur and thick skin. However, with the heat, things are worse. The short snout makes it difficult for the Frenchman to breathe, and if it is hot outside, he will breathe heavily and will prefer the comfort of home. There, the French Bulldog feels best on hot days.

In order for the puppy to develop properly and grow normally, he must be given the opportunity to run and jump, and in warm weather enter the water. Even a long walk on a leash cannot replace a small dog running free or playing with other dogs, especially in the park or in nature.

Walks are needed several times a day, starting with 10 minutes and gradually – longer. During the walk, the puppy should not sit on the cold ground.

Each time after a walk, wipe the puppy’s paws first with a wet and then dry with a dry towel. The dog must not go outside until all vaccinations have been completed. The dog should be spoken to in a calm voice, without haste, constantly and consistently educating him on the necessary habits. In no case do not lose patience and do not shout at the puppy. It is not your fault if you are not in the mood and do not have to bear the consequences.

Walks with the puppy should be at all times, preferably 4-5 or more. You need to carefully allow the animal to get used to going out.

It is recommended that the puppy be taken outside before feeding. After a strong excitement (running outside) it is good if you can not start eating an hour after harvest. If the walks are after eating, running and playing with other animals can lead to intestinal entanglement.

From the beginning of going out (for example, at the age of 3 months), the training to lead an occasion should also begin. Before leaving, repeat the word “walk” and put the occasion. It is difficult to get used to the occasion – when he feels his limited freedom, the puppy begins to stutter and does not want to walk. In this case, you should not pull it, on the contrary, go after it. When he feels that no one is holding him back, he will calm down. In the yard or on the street, the puppy is taken only on occasion to avoid an accident! It is very useful to guide the animal on a small slope. This helps to form high, convex and arched paws. The dog is led to the left leg – teach him this from the first walk. The owner must choose such a walking speed that it is easy for the puppy to walk next to him. On special walks, outdoors or out of town, you can let him off the leash but watch him closely at all times.

Dogs are very sensitive to the intonations of the voice and therefore you can express your disapproval with strict notes in the voice (but not with screams). Your dog will understand you.

At first, the owner must protect the puppy. Later, when he becomes an adult dog, he must again closely monitor the situation during the walk. When larger and stronger dogs appear, it is good to tie your kennel to an occasion to avoid unwanted encounters.

During the walk, try to avoid carrion and other impurities, as dogs like to wallow in them. If this still happens, never punish the dog, but take it home and wash it well.

While you are going out, the puppy should not run down the stairs, down steep hills, and jump over obstacles. It should not be walked by children, but by an adult. And never leave your puppy on the street waiting for you – this is often the case.
