The classic and dignified face of a British Bulldog is hard to miss. British Bulldogs (or English Bulldogs) are built square and stout, giving the appearance of power and strength despite its shortness in height. These dogs are attention-seeking, yet typically calm and well-behaved, and are sure to develop an everlasting love for its family. Bulldogs are a slow moving breed which means they are not suitable for fast and constant physical activity. When listening to your commands and during obedience training their slow-responsiveness must not be mistaken for laziness as Bulldogs like to consider the command before acting on it. British Bulldogs are great travellers and will love accompanying you for a ride in the car.
Lifestyle and Living Environment
British Bulldogs are indoor dogs that prefer a relaxed lifestyle. While they don't require extensive amounts of exercise, they do need some to prevent them from gaining weight. Take a walk with them during the coolest part of the day, and after a solid 15 minutes they will be ready for a nap. Bulldogs don't do well in extremely hot (or cold) weather. They breathe heavily when they're hot and don't dissipate heat well. It's important to provide them with an air-conditioned environment and plenty of fresh water. Also take note that Bulldogs are also not swimmers. If you have a pool, spa, or pond, it's necessary to protect them from falling in.
