Introduction

French Bulloxers are happy, outgoing, and gentle dogs who will be excited to spend time with you no matter what you're doing. They are a pawtastic cross between French Bulldogs and Boxers who tend to weigh between 40 and 65 pounds. Because they're a mix of two muscular breeds, your French Bulloxer will likely be a sturdy dog who is up for lots of exciting adventures! 

Because French Bulloxers are a brachycephalic breed, which means they have short faces, you'll have to make sure they don't overexert themselves in hot weather where their breathing could become compromised. They don't require tons of exercise, so quick walks and other activities will keep your pup active and healthy. Here are a few ideas for fun ways to spend time with your French Bulloxer!

Visiting an off-leash dog park with your French Bulloxer is a pawfect way to keep them active and socialized. Your dog will have so much fun running around and meeting new friends, and at the end of your visit, you'll have one happy and tired pup! On particularly hot days, don't bring your French Bulloxer to the dog park, because exercising in the heat can be very challenging for them. Offer them lots of water during your visit, and plan to stay for no more than an hour so your dog doesn't get too tired out. This is a great choice for a (usually) free activity that's easy to complete with your French Bulloxer!

Visiting a dog-friendly beach with your French Bulloxer is an activity that both of you will love. When the weather is nice, a day at the beach is ideal for a combination of relaxation and exercise while you walk on the sand with your dog or even take a dip with them if the water is warm enough! If you're visiting on an especially hot day, make sure your dog cools off in the water and that they also have constant access to drinking water. Some beaches have parking fees, but if you head there on foot, this is a free and fun activity!
Step
1
Find a dog-friendly beach
Perform a quick online search for dog-friendly beaches in your area. You'll want to check if the beach allows off-leash activity or if your pet will have to be restrained the whole time. You can also find out if the beach has its own supply of doggy bags and drinking water or if you'll need to bring your own.

Visit a dog-friendly beach
Once you've found the ideal dog-friendly beach for you and Rex, it's time to have a blast with your pet in the sunshine! While you're at the beach, the two of you can sit and watch the waves or get some sun, play a game of catch, or even splash around in the water together if your dog likes to swim.

Activity description
Remember how much fun sleepovers were when you were a child? Your dog can have just as much fun having a sleepover with their doggy best friends! This is an activity that can be done in any weather, and it's especially great for brachycephalic breeds who shouldn't overexert themselves. If you have a friend or family member with a pooch who your dog has a lot of fun with, why not see if they can come to your house for a night and hang with your dog? Your dog will be kept busy for hours playing with their pup pal, and it's an excellent way to socialize your pet!
Step
1
Find a friend for your dog
When you're planning a dog sleepover, you don't want to invite a dog over if your dog hasn't met them yet because they might not get along. Pick a dog who your pup has spent time with in the past and gotten along well with. Ask their pet parent if they can come for a sleepover to spend some time with your dog and keep each other busy!
Step
2
Plan activities for the sleepover
While most dogs just need each other to play with, you can also plan for games and treats to entertain the dogs. Perhaps some novelty treats will add to the excitement, or even buying a puzzle toy for the dogs to play with together would be a good idea! You can also plan to just cuddle up with the pups and watch a movie depending on their activity level.
Step
3
Make a cozy place for the dogs to sleep
If your pet usually sleeps in the bed with you, you might invite the visiting dog to join you both up there too. Otherwise, plan for a cozy space where both dogs can sleep. If a dog bed you already have isn't big enough for both dogs, you can quickly make a second dog bed out of old blankets or clothing, and the dogs will be thrilled to cuddle up together for their pawtastic sleepover!
