How to care for Bulldogs
If she seems a big dominant, it may be just a puppy thing, writes Isabela Hatzmann of Bully Make. She suggests some ideas that would help with this. A couple of them are exercising your puppy to get rid of that excess energy. And another idea is to have interesting toys ready to keep their mind and body busy. Even though they do not need a lot of exercise like some other breeds, adding physical and mental stimulation enriches our Bulldog’s life.
What to do for your Bulldog if you live in a hot climate
Bulldogs do not do well in heat. So if you live in a hot climate, keep your dog indoor during the hot part of the day. Bulldogs overheat easily, and their panting cannot cool them off as easily as other dogs.
Isabela suggests some ways of taking care of your Bulldogs on hot days. Keep an eye on them. If you have a swimming pool, they might try to get in the water to cool off. But they are not swimmers. If your house has air-conditioning, that’ll be great. If not, keep your Bulldog in the coolest part of the house. If you have tiled floors, that would help.
What to do if your Bulldog overheats
If you see that your dog is overheat, remove him from the hot area right away. Then put him in some cool water, and pour some cool water over his head. Make sure the cold water soaks his paws, and give him plenty of cold water to drink. You can read more about this topic here. Enjoy listening to this feisty English Bulldog puppy.
