You will understand: the Frenchie bulldog and the children get along wonderfully. Always ready to play, the French bulldog loves the company of the little ones and they make him feel good. At the center of attention and caresses, the scamp sees all his emotional needs met.
To successfully create this harmonious and lasting relationship, take care of the quality of the exchanges between your children and your dog, especially in the early days. The mutual respect and sharing your attention is the secret to a healthy and friendly relationship between the French bulldog and children.
Growing up in the company of a French Bulldog is an enriching experience and very beneficial for the youngest who learn the sense of responsibility, organization and respect for the rules. It only remains for us to wish you moments of frank fun with the family!
Check the inside of the ear every week; it should be clean with some hair in it. When you see a brownish smear or crust in the ear, use a good quality ear cleaner. Depending on the ear cleaner, drop a few drops into the ear canal and massage it. You can then remove the superficial dirt with a tissue.
Never use a cotton swab; this will push the dirt further into the ear canal, with the risk of inflammation. A healthy ear is clean and odorless. If the ear is bright red on the inside or if a black or green substance comes out, go to the vet. Chances are that the dog has an ear infection. Often an ear infection can also be smelled; a bad odor comes from the ear.
Eyes and folds
Dogs are less able to see than people. For the Frenchie dog, the eyes complement what he perceives with senses that are more important to him, such as nose, ears and feeling. The conjunctiva of the eyes can become inflamed. They are then very red, while the dog tears abundantly and blinks. Conjunctivitis can lead to corneal infections, in which a gray haze spreads over the cornea, which ultimately makes the dog completely blind. Conjunctivitis and corneal infections require veterinarian therapy. There is no tear duct in some dogs. Excess tear fluid then slides down the nose through the inner corner of the eye. So-called tear stripes can develop over the nose. In these cases, some extra attention is never gone: clean the inner eye corners and the nose more often. It is best to remove dirt in the corners of the eyes with sterile gauze cotton wool can fluff. Dab the gauze in boiled lukewarm water and wipe the dirt from the inner corner of the eye towards the nose.
