Q: What should I be looking for in Dog Food when it comes to the English Bulldog Breed? A: More commonly, you should look for a food that is grain & corn free, has plenty of enzymes and probiotics, and a good source of protein. Typically, unless you have a rare case of an active bulldog (a skateboarder for example), you want to feed less cups per day than what is recommended on the bag by half, and definitely want to reduce the protein intake. Grain & corn free is best for most bulldogs. With much study and investigation, we have found what we think are the best dog foods on the market for bulldogs.

So you got a new Bully? Or maybe you’re in the process of getting one. Now you need a name? We’ve compiled a list of the names of our member’s bullys and some of their favorite names. Hopefully this will help the sometimes daunting task of choosing a name.

Learning how to read through the vague and horribly regulated dog food labels can be a chore. The front of your dog food bag has gorgeous cuts of steak, fresh fruits and vegetables..... and has a catchy healthy name like "Beneful". These foods make you, the consumer, believe that your are purchasing something really great for your dog! But flip that bag over, and look at the ingredients. This dog food is one of thousands out there that are feeding you a LIE. This dog food claims right on their website: "Protein-rich nutrition, with real beef, to help build strong muscles" INGREDIENTS in Beneful Original Formula: Ground yellow corn, chicken by-product meal, corn gluten meal, whole wheat flour, animal fat preserved with...
