As I have always had dogs I'm not sure if this is ok as with pups I would always feed at least 3 to 4 times a day at that age but before I do that I would love some advice. I have researched online but always like to get advice from owners.
    Hi don't live to far from you just in Leitrim. My bulldog is 7 and a half months now and i still feed him 3 times a day, and I think a young puppy really needs 3 feeds. Just out of interest what food are you using?

    Just noticed your post and seen your name, my mothers maiden name was O'Toole, she was from Co. Carlow. Not at all bulldog related sorry. I hope you get to visit someday Galway is really beautiful.

    Hello & welcome to you & Daisy. Such a pretty girl, & she needs belly rubs from me & a woof from Maggie. My family is from Galway & had a fantastic time there this summer. We are one of the 14 tribes...Browne. Hope to get to Belfast next time.
    Home is where the Bulldog is.

    Have just looked at the food rating link and the food she is on only got 1 star, looks like I will be moving her to a different brand. What do your guys feed your dogs?

    Since you are in Ireland.. I think Acana and Orijen are available to you.. They are good options... Be sure to get grain free

    We feed Maggie Royal Canin bulldog puppy. Will switch her to bulldog at 15 months; 10 months now.

    Hi there welcome to EBN
    you are in the right place for answers and lottsa reading everything Bully
    Daisy is beautiful, glad you sent a pic need many many more of course as were a bit addicted to pics around here lol , you will see that on this site lottsa pics and vids
    I have Rosie now moving to 7 months old but was 8 weeks old when i picked her up from the breeder , I feed for the first year 3 times a day and 1 cup each feeding , but I also monitor her weight constantly after the first 6 months to keep a eye on her weight = possible joint issues later in life , also at six months i started her on a GOOD supplement joint related as a precaution , Bulldogs like many pure breeds can have joint issues . VERY IMPORTANT on what you feed Daisy read our dog food posts it is very important as they can have food related allergies , I personally feed puppy food some prefer all ages food , I do only feed kibble
    Glad to have you here do not hesitate to ask questions , find a BULLDOG VET there worth there weight in gold !
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.
