    Bulldogs for Dummies should be handed out with every puppy! There are so many out there...seriously! I think this website will better prepare you than any book, but the Bulldog for Dummies is a great one.

    I had never had a Bully before Gertie and Ida. I found this website the day after I brought Gertie home and I've never even looked for books. This site is seriously my "Bully Bible". I can't imagine any book giving you the info. you receive here, plus getting questions answered. It's great!

    The internet has been my greatest source for all things bully. But this site has things I didn't read ANYWHERE else. It's pretty much all here.

    @wfd38383 I found this website when Horse was almost 4. So, for the first 4 years of his life, I relied on what I read (bulldogs for dummies, and multiple bulldog books given to me by my uncle, an ex marine and lifelong bully owner). I can tell you that I have learned WAY more in the 6 months-ish I've been a member of this site, than I learned in the 4-years before that from books and bully owners I met!!! So, yes read bulldogs for dummies (i'd be willing to mail you my copy if you'd like, you can email me your address- laurentourville@gmail.com), but also read through this site and ask any questions you may have, this is the best place ever for all things bulldog!

    We have a book (not sure what it is called even) that was given to us and we did read it before we got Cutty but it just gives the basics which I am guessing most any bulldog will do. Better than nothing and fun to read while waiting for sure but you will learn all the bigger, more important things on this site, thats for sure. Maybe WE should all get together and write our own book?!?!?! haha

    @wfd38383 I read in your other post that you're from MA, I grew up in Southampton (right next to Northampton), and now live in Vermont. I have a bunch of Bulldog books that I wouldn't mind mailing to you, books are inexpensive to mail, especially since you live so close! Let me know if you want to borrow them! You'll also learn a ton from this site, so you may not even need the books. It's such a good thing that you are doing your research before getting your puppy, and it's great that the breeder lives so close to you!
