French Bulldog Vs English Bulldog Appearance:
The French Bulldog, or the Frenchie. These little dogs were bred to be companion animals. They are striking in unique, and their big "batty" ears really make them stand out from the crowd. They had compact, yet muscular little bodies. With a sunken muzzle that makes their faces almost seem a little smooshed. Frenchies can grow up to 13 inches tall and weigh up to 28 pounds. They have short coats and can come in many different colors, such as solids, piebalds, brindles, and even tan points.
The English Bulldog, on the other hand, it somewhat larger in height and heft; they can grow up to 16 inches tall and weigh up to 50 pounds. This breed is pretty instantly recognizable thanks to its popularity- with its wide stance, big floppy lips, short face, and distinctive wrinkles. The English Bulldog has short, coarse fur, and they come in a variety of colors like solids, piebalds, fawns, and brindle.
French Bulldog Vs English Bulldog Exercise Requirements And Grooming Requirements:
Both the Frenchie and English Bulldog can be pretty laid back when it comes to exercise. They do require exercise, and it is recommended to prevent them from becoming obese. Since both of these breeds are brachycephalic or flat-faced, too much exercise in extreme weather can cause breathing issues- making it imperative to keep an eye on them while they are getting their workout.
For grooming requirements, both of these breeds can be demanding, and it isn't so much the grooming that is the issue but all the other care they need. They do both shed and need a brush down with a bristle brush or rubber curry comb once a week and baths once every month or two. Ears will also need to be cleaned, eyes inspected- possibly even flushed, ointment applied to eyes, and their wrinkles need special to care to be kept clean, free of debris, and completely dry.
French Bulldog Vs English Bulldog Temperament and social needs:
As we go forward with the rest of the video, it will be with the assumption that the dog has been given proper socialization and training from a young age. It will also be assumed that the dog is of correct temperament and disposition for its breed.
The general rule with most Bulldogs is that they adore their people, are devoted to them, and would be miserable to be confined to live outside or long hours away from their person. The Frenchie and English Bulldog are no exception to this rule.
The Frenchie is a big lover, but it hasn't seemed to forget that once it was a warrior. The Frenchie tends to be calm, dependable, and adaptable. But there is a stubborn streak in there. When they feel threatened, they tend to disregard and forget their size. These little dogs are friendly, but can be a little more standoffish at first and need some time to warm up. If they do- they will quickly forget there was ever an issue and move in to make friends. The Frenchie gets on great with kids and small animals. Though, there might be some issues with dogs of the same gender.
The English Bulldog is friendly, calm, and can be pretty laid back and make themselves comfortable as lap dogs. They share some of the Frenchies stubbornness, though, and may even have retained more of it. The English Bulldog is humorous and full of personality. English Bulldogs absolutely adore children. They often employ themselves as Nanny dogs and follow the little ones around and keep a watchful eye on them. They also do well with small animals and generally with other dogs too. But, there are cases out there of English Bulldogs with dog aggression and same-sex intolerance.
French Bulldog Vs English Bulldog Trainability:
Both the Frenchie and the English Bulldog are difficult training projects. Have you ever heard the saying "As stubborn as a bull"? It very much applies here. These dogs are loving to their people, but they are independent as well. They have a mind of their own, and sometimes laziness can even get in the way. It is a real effort to get a Bulldog breed's attention, hold it, and convince them what you want them to do is a great idea. Consistent leadership from a young age is the best tool you will have when trying to train either of these breeds.
