    Default I am a bully and EBN newbie! :)

    Hi all. My name is Deanna and I am the proud mommy of Cali, my 4 1/2 month old English Bulldog! My boyfriend and I have had Cali for 2 months now and we absolutely adore her! She is smart, loving, funny and perfect! (In our eyes at least) I am a worry wart and want what's best for my pup. Sometimes I ask too many people for advice and end up becoming even more of a neurotic mommy! I don't know if being on this site will worry me more but it's worth a shot!!!

    First question-- is it normal when my baby sleeps that she breathes heavier and faster than normal? It has been this way since we got her, and she has been to vet several times for routine shots check ups etc. but I would love some advice (and hopefully reassurance!)
    thanks all!

    to EBN. Bullies usually snore when they sleep, or at least are noisier than other breeds, when breathing in their sleep. I don't know of any reason why she should be breathing faster-unless she is too hot.

    Bulldogs breath heavier then any other breed, they have smaller air passages. I dont think you have anything to worry about. She's a beautiful bulldog. to EBN!

    Hi, and welcome to you and Cali, so glad you joined EBN. You will love it on this site, there's tons of information and lots of great people to ask questions, share advice, and share their experiences. English Bulldogs are a breed of dog called Braphaphalic dogs, they include EB, boxers, pugs, French Bulldogs, and other dogs with flat faces. They have shorter noses and tracheas than other breeds so they breath heavier and snore, so it's normal for your EB to do this. Some dogs do have problems with their breathing, and sometimes require surgery of the nasal passages to allow them to breath better. This isn't always necessary, only in extreme cases, but you do have to watch these breeds more carefully when it comes to exercise, especially in hot weather, or extreme cold weather. EB don't tolerate extreme temperatures even a little hotter temperatures are not good for them, and many but not all EB don't tolerate long walks, usually 20 to 30 mins is enough for them. You want to watch out for overheating and panting.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    I'm a worrier too and sure sometimes things I read makes me stress, lol, but I've learned SO much from being on here so I'd say it has made me a warrior instead Now I know what to stress about and what to leave alone, what to "do" and "not do" in certain situations, what questions to ask when at the vet and so much more. This site is the ultimate when looking for advice, reassurance and support, I hope you'll feel the same

    Cali is precious I'm not sure about the breathing... mine would breath faster when they're warm... but as long as it doesn't sound like she's struggling I don't think you need to worry It might just be her "thing" since she checked out clear from the vet
    You were born with the ability to change someone's life, don't ever waste it.

    Welcome here. Ace when he was younger would sometimes breathe rapidly when sleeping and it worried me, but he grew out of it. Now when he is sleeping his breathing is slow and rhythmic and sometimes the snoring is louder than at other times but compared to the rapid breathing it was a relief. Actually the snoring now helps me sleep. When he was younger and at times the breathing was irregular and the snoring uneven I would giggle the crate and he would change positions and the breathing would become normal
