More details about the Bulldog

Bulldog: Origins and history

He comes from combat dogs used in the Medieval Age against bulls, hence his name. He is the result of a selection that aimed to create a dog with a powerful bite, very fierce and courageous, insensitive to pain. This unhealthy selective breeding regime, which sought to produce only "war machines", was due to be eradicated due to his great ferocity. Thus, the English Bulldog was almost extinct until a group of breeders took an interest in him and began to work on his personality by eliminating any traces of aggression. Today the English Bulldog is a very friendly, sweet and quite balanced companion dog.

Training a Bulldog

This hound may be difficult to motivate but when you have his attention, he is rather docile. On the other hand, if he perceives confusion or unfairness in the attitude of his master, then he may express his disapproval.

Education should be initiated as soon as you get an English Bulldog puppy to prevent him from learning bad habits.

As he may have a thick head on occasions, any training exercises will have to be repeated regularly and in the most positive way possible, but with a dose of firmness. The sessions should be short to prevent the loss of the dog’s concentration and to guarantee success.

Teaching him to be alone is recommended to prevent this dog from stressing as long as you don’t push your luck with long absences.

Walking on a leash without pulling will also require a swift star to the learning process if you want walks to be enjoyable, both for the master and for the dog.

Bulldog: Purchase price

The price of an English Bulldog varies depending on his origins, age and gender. It is between £1460 and £1700 for a dog registered with the KC. The high prices are generally justified by the titles won by the breeding parents at dog shows.

The average monthly budget ranges from £35 and £45 in order to fully meet the needs of this dog, including conventional food and care.
