*FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions*



Is A Frenchie Right For Me?
Frenchies LOVE to be loved ... for the most part right. Every dog is different, some are more cuddlier than others of course...  If you want a funny, cute and loving breed, who doesnt require much exercise and will bring you tons of laughter... THEN  YES!!!  Of  course a puppy is just a puppy and there isn't ever a guarantee. If you want an outdoorsy type dog, NOPE, not this breed.... for the most part right. They all vary, most Frenchies wont play fetch, but we have 2 that would out-fetch a Labrador if given the chance... The thing is they shouldnt get the chance because they can overexert themselves, they don't have the Stamina. Read this page for more info on the breed:  [Frenchie Information]

How are they with other animals?
For the most part they do get along very well with their own breed and other breeds... but again, socialization, discipline, environment, it all matters!!!!  How your dog is bred matters also. I have met people who bought their frenchie puppy because it was cheaper... Come to find out it was an Import and those tend to be more hyper and aggressive than your well bred, USA bred French Bulldog from quality lines. You cannot ever paint all dogs with the same brush. Some Frenchies can "act out" when not given proper training... when the owners let them get away with anything and everything. They are BULLDOGS!!! BULL... like they can be BULLHEADED. The human always has to be PACK LEADER... they need to teach the dog right from wrong and what is and isn't acceptable FROM DAY ONE. Our dogs do not act out with us because they know we run a strict household and HUMANS ARE IN CHARGE!!! PERIOD!!!!! Read this page for more information on this subject: [French Bulldog Aggression ]  Many photos of Frenchies and their " non-human friends" are on that page. Just rememebr... no breeder can ever guarantee your puppy will love other dogs and cats and kids and birds and snow and water and well... you get the point. A puppy is JUST A PUPPY!!!!

How Are they With Kids?
     Frenchies are lovers for the most part....  I believe teaching our Children and Dogs what is right and wrong from the beginning will make kids and dogs a great combination! Many of our Frenchie babies are in homes with children and they could not be happier. Proper training and supervision is a must with ANY breed. Again... no guarantee with a puppy... DO not let any breeder tell you otherwise... no breeder can predict the future. Read this page for more info  [ Frenchie Information]

How Much Do They Why Do They Cost So Much? 
French Bulldogs are expensive... for a number of reasons. AKC Champion Sired Frenchies start at 4k... Showing dogs costs a lot of money. They are delivered only by C-Section... thet have low litter sizes if it's a STANDARD AKC BRED FRENCHIE... not these so called rare colors that are throwing larger litters and you have to wonder HOW? How can every litter they have be 7-8-9 puppies, but American Standard Bred AKC Champion Bred Frenchies that go back generations and generations have an average of 3-5 puppies ONLY per litter??? They need to be artificially inseminated because AKC Standard COBBY MALES cannot reach the female. All of this keep their prices rather high. Please ensure that if you find one that seems to be a bargain it's probably an import or a puppy mill puppy. Keeping these dogs the right way and breeding them the right way is not cheap and the time a responsible and reputable breeder spends raising the pups and the adults is priceless... that time can never be given back or repaid. We haven't been on vacation in over 20 years!!!  Read this page for more information on this subject: [French Bulldog Cost]

Are Frenchies Noisy?
As far as barking? Not really, there are exceptions to everything of course, but most Frenchies aren't excessive barkers, but most will warn when someones coming to the door. The majority however, do grunt and snort and make super adorable FRENCHIE NOISES.... some sound like coyotes with the FRENCHIE HOWL and some make sounds you've just never heard before.... quite amusing and quite entertaining and one of the main reasons why this breed is so unique.

Do They Drool, Snore and  Fart?
No drooling... they are not English Bulldogs or French Mastiffs.  Most do snore...   Some do fart a lot, some hardly do and some may fart, but it's not as potent lol... It just depends on your frog dog and what you feed them matters as well.

Can Frenchies Swim?
For the most part this would be a big NO !!!!!!! They are top heavy and will sink.

    Why are they called Frog Dogs or Clown Dogs?

    What should I feed my  Frenchie?
     Again, I have a whole page dedicated to this... Sorry this has not been updated in a while, but look into Fromm Grain Free,  Stella and Chewy Patties, Wetnoses Organic Dog Treats and Feeding your dog homecooked meals with an adequate vitamin supplement would be my suggestion.
