An adult male British bulldog should weigh about 50 pounds (23 kg); a mature bitch should be about 40 pounds (18 kg).

The once ferocious British Bulldogs are now friendly and playful. They are sensitive and affectionate. When they are young, they can be rowdy and full of energy. As an adult, they are laid back and quiet. Depending on the dog, they may like meeting people, or they may be timid and shy. 

The more they are introduced to people and other dogs when they are young, the more outgoing they may be. It all depends on the dog’s personality. You will need to watch the dog around other animals to determine their temperament.

They are not often thought of as watchdogs, however, they can be tough. British bulldogs do not bark much but they are intimidating and can latch onto an intruder with their strong jaws.

When dealing with a British bulldog, you can get frustrated. They can be stubborn because they know exactly what they want, and they will disobey from time to time. British Bulldog puppies need to be properly trained at an early age, so they know you are in charge.

Maintenance of a British Bulldog

British Bulldogs are not energetic dogs. They like staying indoors and relaxing. However, if they are allowed to lie around too much, they will easily become overweight. They need at least 20-40 minutes of moderate exercise every day. This is as simple as taking them on a short walk.

If it is too hot outside, it is not a good idea to leave the bulldog outside. Hot temperatures can be lethal to a bulldog. British Bulldogs should be kept in a cool environment to prevent a heat stroke. If you do need to take the dog out in the heat, always make sure that you have fresh water for them to drink.

When feeding a British Bulldog, count calories. This breed of dog often requires around 1145 calories per day. Their calorie intake will greatly depend on the dog’s energy level and age.


British Bulldog Appearance

British Bulldogs do not shed as much as many other dog breeds. They often have a fine smooth coat which makes cleaning up dog fur an easy job. With proper grooming, you will not have to deal with much fur on your clothing or furniture. If you notice that your British Bulldog is shedding excessively, see your veterinarian. The excess shedding could be caused by several different factors.

Their teeth need to be cleaned regularly. This will help prevent bacteria and tartar buildup. It will also help prevent infections. You should brush their teel at least two to three times per week.

A British Bulldog should get a bath at least once every six weeks. And their wrinkles need to be cleaned every few days. Cleaning the wrinkles with help prevent irritation, infections and yeast/bacteria buildup.

Give your bulldog a good ear cleaning once a week. This will remove dirt and buildup preventing infections.



British Bulldogs are not for everyone. A lot of people want to own one because of their looks. But they are a special breed that requires unique care. You must be able to devote time to them and have the money to cover their vet bills. They are known to have a lot of issues and require veterinary care more often than other breeds.

Another thing to think about when adopting a British Bulldog from a British Bulldog Breeder in Australia is, do you have young children or other pets? Bulldogs do not usually get along with cats. And they are possessive and food aggressive. If you do have children or pets, it is important that you feed your Bulldog away from them.


English Bulldog Trainability  

British Bulldogs can be trained, but it is hard to do so. They are stubborn and do not like to be told what to do. They do need to be trained and socialised so they do not become aggressive. British bulldog puppies should be trained at a young age before they are set in their ways.


British Bulldog Puppies

British bulldog puppies are rowdy and fun. However, they need to be trained from an early age. It is very important they know right away that you are their boss and the rules of the household. This does not mean you need to hit the dog. Instead, use positive reinforcements such as treats and praise. They will learn quicker, and you will both be happier. When you hit a dog, you are not training them to listen. Instead, you are teaching them aggressive behaviour.


When feeding your British bulldog puppy, do not feed them big meals. Bulldogs have a small digestive system. If you give them too much food, they can get sick and have accidents. Instead, give them 3 small meals a day. When they are done eating, wait about 15 minutes to take them outside to urinate. In another 15 minutes take them outside to finish their business.   


British Bulldog Health Problems  

They are known for having serious health problems. They already have a compromised respiratory system due to their shortened face. This is what causes their panting and snoring. This compromised respiratory system makes it risky for these dogs to go under anaesthesia. They are also known to suffer from skin problems, hip problems, and heart problems. Also, during hot weather they need to be kept cool, so they do not overheat and have a heat stroke.



If you are intending to breed your British bulldogs, there are some concerns you need to think about. The bitch (female) is put under a lot of strain during pregnancy. The pregnancy can be risky and could be life-threatening. The British bulldog breed is known to have complications at a high rate. Many British bulldogs cannot whelp on their own. They need the help of a veterinarian and often require a cesarean section (C-section). This can be costly and dangerous.

British bulldogs should never be bred more than 3 times. They will usually have 3 to 4 puppies per litter. The mother does not have good motherly instincts. So, she needs to be monitored around the clock. It is not uncommon for a mother to lay on top of the puppies and kill them.


History of British Bulldogs

Bulldogs originated in England during the 13th century. They were used for the sport of bullbaiting. In 1835, England banned the sport. Since the bulldog was no longer needed for fighting, it faced possible extinction. Fans of the bulldog took it upon themselves to make sure the breed survived. 

The bulldogs used in bullbaiting were ferocious animals that needed to be transformed. After years of work, the once savage dogs became loving companions. People began showing the dogs, and in 1864, a club was organised to enhance the breed.

Lately, people have attempted to re-establish a breed similar to the original bullbaiter.  Examples of these breeds are the Olde English Bulldogge, Renaissance bulldog, Victorian, Continental and Dorset Old Thyme bulldog. But we think the British Bulldog is perfect just the way it is.
