General Bulldog Information
A full grown, adult bulldog will require 20-40 minutes exercise per day. You should incrementally increase a puppy's exercise time until it reaches the limit. Bulldogs are not a race dog (as I'm sure your aware!), they are a cart horse. Bulldogs should never be exercised in the heat of the day, the pace should steady but not terribly brisk. Pay attention to coat colour, a dark brindle dog will overheat more quickly then a lighter dog.
The breed standard states bulldogs should be between 22-25kg (50-55lb). Most males will run slightly heavier. They are classed as a large dog even thought they are only approx 36cm tall, but with a very high body mass index! If feeding dry complete adult food give around 285-395 grams a day, normally split in to 2 meals when fully grown.
Bulldogs will not bark unless alerted or disturbed.
Bulldogs are companion dogs, so they love human attention! So much so, they will follow you room to room, they want to be wherever you are! This means they love kids as, of course, they are always the most willing to give them lots of hugs and kisses! Bulldogs are also fine with other pets/animals when introduced from a young age.
We've found many books that are a good resource and recommend The Pet Owners Guide to the Bulldog by Judith Daws available online @ WHSmiths.
As I've said before I do not want to duplicate what already exists on the internet, so I highly recommend reading this page -> Bulldog Rescue Common Aliments
A Bulldog has a short/fine coat that sheds moderately. They require grooming at least once a week but no trimming is necessary. Daily care of tearstains and wrinkles is needed. Sensitive baby wipes or diluted Hibiscrub can be used to clean, kitchen roll to dry and either Lanacane powder and Athletes foot cream to sooth (alternate often).
