    Default English Bulldog DOs and DON'Ts

    Thought we all could play a little game, and at the same time we could help our fellow bulldog owners!

    First, list a bulldog DO:

    Then list a bulldog DON'T:



    I will start:

    DO wipe your bulldogs wrinkles and keep them clean and dry

    DON'T leave your dog outside too long if it is hot outside

    Everyday is a party when you own a bulldog!

    Exclamation Do's

    Do feed your bully high quality dog food with no grains and by-products.
    Do keep your bully's nails trimmed and filed.
    Do give your bully healthy supplements.

    Do not let your bully walk on hard surfaces such as concrete for long periods of time, this could cause pressure on their joints because they are a heavy build with short legs.

    Do not leave your bully in hot weather without water. Try a kiddie pool.

    Do not take your bully to the park or any other place where there are many dogs, atleast until they have had all their shots and over 1 year old. Too many environmental diseases out there.

    Thumbs up

    There are so many...

    DO clean your bully babies ears regularly,
    DO make sure their paws stay clean and dry between the pads
    DO make sure they get enough exercise
    DO give gazillions of hugs and kisses
    DO let your bully rule the house (with rules of course )


    DON'T let them overeat
    DON'T let them overdrink (my bully throws up his throat slime when he drinks too much)
    DON'T let them overdo on exercise and overheat

    Just a few :p

    do spoil your bully rotten!
    don't get a bully just to breed. they're companion animals and that needs to be their first and foremost role!

    do give your bully plenty of snogs and hugs.
    don't be shocked when your bully fancies themselves a 'diva' that's part of their wonderful nature

    do consider and support bully rescues--these people/places are saints and dedicate their lives to saving these wonderful dogs, a vast majority of which, come to them in dyer need of $$$ vet care, love, and attention.

    do expect some flatulence
    don't blame yours on the dog!

    don't buy a bully from anyone other than a reputible/responsible breeder. (someone that breeds for the purpose of IMPROVING the breed--not simply to make a 'profit') you *may* get one 'cheaper' initially from an irresponsible breeder, but be assured that you will pay for it many times over in vet bills later on and your beloved bully will suffer from the breeder's greed.

    Do rescue a bully in need.

    Don't forget to do constant research on your new friend and get some wonderful bully forum friends for advice!

    This is such a fun topic. So I must bump it!

    DO give your bulldog healthy treats like carrots, green beans, bananas for snacks

    Do NOT give them cheap store bought treats!

    Do make sure you Kiss and Hug your Bully everyday.
    DO your part to help your rescue group.

    Don't put you Bully on a shelter.
    Don't leave your pizza you got deliveried on your coffee table while you go and use the bathroom. Because when you come back....someone with 4 feet is very FULL. Yep it happen to me.

    DO give your bulldog durable toys to play with (nylabone durables, kongs)

    DON'T give them toys they could POSSIBLY swallow (Samson swallowed a toy, needed surgery to remove )
