Mocha
Good Morning Everyone! My name is Heather and I am a new Bulldog owner. Mocha is 5 weeks old today and she will be coming home is a few short weeks. I have spent alot of time researching the breed and learning as much as I can. I am so glad I happened upon this site while doing research. I am here to learn as much as I can so I can be a successful pet owner. I haven't owned a pet in 20 or so years.

Look forward to meet and exchanging thoughts with everyone!

:welcome4:

Welcome to EBN. There is tons of great info in here. We have very knowledgeable members that’s willing to help. Guess we know Mocha‘s colour? :) We also LOVEEEE photos.

Only advice for now when furball comes home is get yourself a vet that knows bullies, seriously do, you won’t regret it. There’s a list posted of recommended bully vets in US. We do have a member that lives in NJ. Next best advice is start puppy on a high quality kibble like Acana. Even better start with a raw diet. And last, never have all vaccines done in one shot. :no: split them up. Some pups have hard time with all the side effects. No rush either, so very wise to split them up. :)

Hello helsonwheels! Yes, as you can see how Mocha got her name (within a few minutes of meeting her:)) You answered so many quick questions right from the start for me! Thank you! I found Acana pet food on Castlewood Bulldog site. They have a "puppy supply list I have been working from and Acana is on the list! I would love to start her on raw food actually. I am looking for a doctor that specializes in Bulldogs...I am going to have to find the NJ member and see if I can get a referral.

Thank you so much for the help!

There you go, da list. Try to meet them if you want so you get a better feel. Mind you right now you dont want to wonder NY surrounding.

Definitely if you start a puppy on raw would be the best thing you’ll ever do for Mocha. You can order also online. Im in Canada so I cannot really help you where to buy but like you saw with the vet address these members are on the ball to help everyone. I’m more the holistic way n essential oil person...when you do any protein, start with one meat protein at a time. Like that you can monitor “ if” any allergies. Puppies don’t usually have allergies just yet but definitely do give chicken immediately so Mocha’s immune system will get use to n build up good protection. Always rotate your meat protein so eventually Mocha can eat anything and have no problem down the road. I would rotate every 2-3 weeks with raw when my dogs were pups. I still do. Nyala is 4.5 n Jake is 3ish. Neither have allergies. I don’t buy raw with veggies or fruits in it as I prefer monitor their veggies and fruits. I personally rather they eat more meat. Go on page12 of this thread below n you’ll find everything you need. And yes you can always ask. We’re all here to help..

Hi! And where did you look for information when choosing a breed? By what criteria did you choose a bulldog? I am currently reading information about dogs on https://www.bestpetstips.com/pet-animals/. I also want to choose a breed that is perfect for me. After all, a dog is part of the family and it is very important to take care of it properly. This is a big responsibility and I want to approach this issue seriously. Therefore, I am looking for all possible information about dogs, their habits and breed characteristics. If someone advises me something, I will be very glad.
