The French Bulldog has become a fashion breed. Many people want to buy French Bulldog puppies, which is why I’m going to outline here what French Bulldogs cost. 

The Average Price at which a French Bulldog is sold is $2200. The price range at good breeders usually start at $1200 and can go up to $15,000.

The French Bulldog is a very family-oriented dog that can be left alone at times, which is best practiced from puppy age.  

However, you should not leave the animal alone in the apartment for more than four to five hours a day, as the French Bulldog suffers when the owner is not around.

Especially with a puppy, you have to consider that the animal has to walk more often than an adult dog. The French Bulldog loves daily exercise, regular walks, and mental work. Also, one must also take care of the dog. 

You can read more on how to care for a French Bulldog puppy in our post.

The French Bulldog has a short coat that is very easy to groom.

It is also important to remember to clean the ears and facial wrinkles at regular intervals and to check the teeth and eyes. Thus the care expenditure with these dogs keeps itself solidly within limits.

Buying a French bulldog

Before you buy a puppy, you first have to clarify a few general things. Some special features should also be considered in advance when buying a French Bulldog.

What do french bulldogs cost?

Of course, you can not determine for what price they are selling, but there are price ranges that can be specified. 

The problem of information about the price starts with whether the buyer buys one from private or whether he is looking for a breeder who is also a member of the relevant breeding associations.

The connoisseur assumes that the breeder will sell a baby for 850 dollars and more, while the private person will only ask from 400 dollars. 

If you look at the price carefully, you will notice that its mix of colors has an impact on price. The black bulldog puppies or mixed-breed puppies are slightly cheaper.

The breeder in the association may find that an animal with the wrong color or a mix will be slightly cheaper than one that fully meets the requirements of the association. 

And other characteristics of the animal, such as the question of whether it was allowed to enjoy an upbringing or house-trained, can reduce or increase the price from the seller’s perspective.

Where can you buy a French Bulldog puppy?

Buy puppies from the breeder

Buying puppies only from a good French bulldog breeder has nothing to do with prestige. The serious breeder is not interested in producing cheap puppies, but in keeping the breed as healthy as possible.

Puppy producers, however, save on the nutrition and health of the animals. You also avoid the examinations of the parent animals, which reveal possible hereditary diseases and should exclude sick animals from breeding. 

Many of these propagators do not even know about such necessary investigations.

Many diseases only show up in adulthood, so you should not believe that a puppy that makes a healthy impression is healthy.

Buy A French bulldog puppy from the shelter

If you want to buy a French Bulldog puppy, you can also take a look around the shelter. Animals that come from illegal reproduction and have been confiscated often land here. With these, the risks mentioned above are to be expected.

Nevertheless, it is, of course, important that there are people who take care of such a dog. B

reed-specific animal welfare organizations such as “Bulldogs in need” also mediate older animals – often those with a bad past.

Why should my dog ​​have papers if I don’t want to breed or exhibit?

If you want to buy a French Bulldog puppy, you often ask yourself why you should attach importance to good papers when you are only looking for a dog to love. 

Aren’t papers just driving up the price? The answer is: no! Papers from a good breeder association have their authorization even without the dog being shown.

In the breeders’ associations, a distinction must be made between an association that belongs to the VDH (for French Bulldogs, this is the IKFB ) and a so-called dissidence association.

The advantage of a dog with VDH papers is the certainty that the dog comes from a good breed. French Bulldog breeders who are members of the VDH must pass a fitness test for their dogs and undergo various health tests before breeding with the dog.

Breed-typical diseases and hereditary errors are very likely to be excluded in this way. 

The French Bulldog breeders connected there are without exception hobby breeders because multipliers and traders are excluded from the association.

If you want to buy a French bulldog from a dissidence club, you should ask the breeder what prompted him not to breed under the VDH.

What needs to be considered by the breeder

The dog should have received all vaccinations, be chipped, and dewormed. The litter has been checked by the association (“litter acceptance”).

The puppies should be lively and friendly and not afraid of people. Both parents should be able to breathe freely. A slightly longer nose is advantageous and not a completely flat one.

How do you raise a French bulldog as a puppy?

The smaller, sweeter, and more affectionate the miniature version of the four-legged friend is, the better the upbringing is. Once he is fully grown and older after a few months, it is all the more difficult to bring up new rules of behavior during the upbringing. 

As with children, the best way to get up and running in the first few months as a puppy is through play, so the dog owner can achieve good results. Place, seat, and other commands can be trained in this way.

French Bulldog education means not eating shoes or biting on table legs. With patience, you will be persuaded to let these bad habits stay. A loving, living being like this will appreciate praise and always be happy when it can get a treat.

If you, as the light-hearted owner of a French bulldog, always take note that this dog breed wants to be a member of the family, you will achieve the best results. But it should always be clear that in the end, she is an animal with her own will and temperament. Always stay focused on training and try to achieve long-term success in education.

If you start raising your French Bulldog early as a puppy, you will no longer have any problems with the age of the animal.

How can I properly care for my French Bulldog?

Due to its extremely short fur, it is easy to care for a French Bulldog. His coat doesn’t have to be brushed often, and a visit to the dog groomer can also be omitted.

Instead, during the upbringing, the owner should make sure that he cares well for the skin of his protégé. Many animals of his type suffer from allergies. This is where it is worth buying children’s shirts and sleeveless shirts that he could wear.

Other areas of care are also part of the education of a French bulldog. The ears and especially the wrinkles on the face require attention so that no inflammation will form here either. 

A veterinarian with experience will recommend care products that help to prevent the skin in the folds of the body from becoming inflamed. 

Here, the dog owner can also get the best remedies for the allergy consequences so the skin can recover from possible scratching attacks.

Tip: In general, the doctor should examine the nose because the flatter the dog’s nose, the more likely it is that breathing difficulty may occur. 

If you share the bedroom with a French bulldog, you will usually have to be prepared to have a co-sleeper who breathes loudly and also snores.

What is the best way to employ a French bulldog?

As an owner of a French Bulldog, one suffers permanently paranoid because she is very affectionate. And masters and animals belong in the opinion of this dog always in the same space. 

But there will also be rooms and areas in the house where this breed should not enter. For example, he should wait at the entrance to the kitchen or wait on the top step of the basement stairs.

For a sedentary owner, this can mean that the animal spends many hours sleeping on his favorite blanket or couch. Since we don’t want this, exercise and fun accessories come into play when it comes to education! 

If you want to get your darling moving, you should buy robust toys, because pulling is the favorite game of this breed.

In the same way, balls and squeaky animals can be good accessories for movement. The French Bulldog likes to be on the move when you throw a ball, and he brings his toy back with ease.

Of course, the owner will experience a certain joy of walking in female animals when raising his French Bulldog at a young age. 

He is suddenly unexpectedly spurting through the apartment and mostly exhausting herself. This behavior subsides later and rarely occurs.

If you think of movement for the pet, you should first determine what type of Bully he is. There are two types of Französischer Bulldog known. Their education is very different: 

The regular Bully is the friendly couch potato that life always concerns very quiet. Here you have a friend for life who will neither climb stairs nor jump on the couch.

But the sports Bully can hop on the sofa, and run up the stairs at a fast pace. He will get enough exercise for himself and will be happy to follow his master’s everywhere. 

If you want to have an athletic companion for agility, you should consider choosing a French Bulldog.

How often should you go for a walk?

The French Bulldog is not a typical walker because he can’t stand the heat at all. For many animals, this means that only winter is suitable for a fun walk. 

Autumn and spring also allow the dog to go outdoors, but only if the temperatures have not risen above 20 degrees.

Since many dogs suffer from allergies, the dog owner must also pay attention to the worst pollen times. Instead of going for a walk, it is better to have a garden where the ball of fur can spend a short time several times a day.

How Often Do You Feed Them, and What Does The French Bulldog Eat?

For every four-legged friend like the French Bulldog, there should always be a bowl of fresh water and dry food. This dog breed is also keen on raw food such as carrots or apple. 

The French Bulldog will love food that contains duck, pork, or chicken during the upbringing. Generally, with food with the meat, you can always give her pleasure in the bowl.

When it comes to nutrition, you should trust the animal completely when raising the French Bulldog. It is not one of the breeds that always eats everything. 

Instead, this breed lives up to its cliché as a fan of French cuisine, because the French Bulldog divides its food well and will only go to the bowl when it is really hungry.

Whether chewing sticks, bull peas, or pig ears, the French Bulldog has a great set of teeth and likes to use them. 

As a full member of the family, she will always expect to get her share of the meals. It must always be ensured that the right dog food is used for the upbringing.


Many animals bark at every sound or like to bite shoes and furniture. The French Bulldog, on the other hand, is mostly free of these vices. 

And he proves to be a very pleasant contemporary when it is house-trained. 

As an owner, you have to be able to endure snoring and severe flatulence, which cannot be weaned off through upbringing. Still, you do have a nice bed and couch mate who does not expect his owner to walk with him for hours.

For the little ones, in particular, he is a child-loving, playful friend with a happy, lively personality and character. And for the neighbor’s someone who will always be well accepted even at bedtime. 

As a dog owner, you have to pay attention to allergies, shortness of breath, and skincare when raising the French Bulldog. But otherwise, this companion can only be described as an easy to care for friend. 

This has probably resulted in the popularity of this dog breed, especially among families with small children.
