GETTING TO KNOW YOUR BULLDOG

At first glance, there’s no mistaking the Bulldog.

Their strong, muscular frame and loose, rolls of skin are distinctive traits that have continued to make them popular throughout history. However, because of their stockier build, it is important to help them maintain their bones and joints. The best food for Bulldogs should give them the nutrition they need with the right vitamins and minerals level to help support their bone and joint health.

Temperament

Bulldogs have a delightful personality and have a reputation as the perfect family companion. Their ability to get along well with children along with their playful nature makes them a joy to be around. Although they sometimes can take a while to adapt to training, their charming nature more than makes up for it.

Weight

The Bulldog has a tendency to overeat and is very prone to weight gain. However, they still need a good nutritional balance in their diets. This is why the best Bulldog diets, such as ROYAL CANIN®'s Bulldog diet, have a controlled calorie count while still giving your pet all the nutritional support they need.

Muscles & Joints

Bulldogs have powerful, sturdy bodies that put extra stress on their joints. It’s important they are fed a diet that helps prevent inflamed joints and helps maintain their overall bone and joint health.  

Skin & Coat

Bulldogs have a short, smooth coat that doesn’t shed often. However, it is still a good idea to give them a grooming session once a week to remove dead hairs and bacteria caught in their folds of skin. It is also a great time for you to bond with your pet.
