The French Bulldog is a small pup packed with a huge personality. The French Bulldog was developed to be a miniature Bulldog in England, and, when lace-makers took the breed to France while trading, the breed became known as the French Bulldog. The Frenchie, as the breed has come to be called, was intended to be a companion dog. Even today, the French Bulldog makes a wonderful apartment dog. The Frenchie does not need a great deal of exercise, and, their brachycephalic nose makes it imperative that the dog not become overexerted. However, you can still enjoy bonding time with your pup even if you aren't running laps around the neighborhood!
The French Bulldog makes a great lap dog, but they will still need a small amount of exercise daily in order to maintain a healthy weight. Daily activity will also prevent boredom in your pup as well, which can lead to behavioral problems. Remember to keep water handy when exercising outdoors, and always work out during cooler times of the day.
