Their flat face not only gives them a unique appearance, but also means bulldogs suffer from specific conditions such as breathing difficulties , nasal noises and snoring at night time. For this reason, these dogs can't do intense physical activity.


Due to their condition, they only need 20 minutes of exercise, making them an ideal pet for those who lead more sedentary lives. Despite being a loyal and loving dog, they're not considered suitable for children because they're not very active animals.


This breed is also prone to stomach problems. It's very important to follow your vet's instructions regarding their diet. Additionally, food portions must be kept small . They have a tendency to become obese if they eat excessively due to a lack of physical activity, which could cause health problems.


They can be bathed monthly but their fur should be brushed at least twice a week and the folds of their skin should be cleaned daily , if possible, to avoid allergies and problems. Their eyes are often dirty, but by using gauze and a saline solution to clean them, this can eliminate the problem.


Like any other dog, two visits to the vet per year are sufficient to check their overall condition and determine if they are in good health.


Their physique and individual conditions mean the bulldog is a dog that requires great care. For this reason, you should have enough time to take care of them. However, it is a very loving dog that will thank you for your dedication with love and faithful companionship.
