English bulldogs are definitely special dogs. You can just look at them and you will see that. Their tail is short, their head is big and their shoulders are broad. Totally opposite than other dogs. It is not just their look. They have a very special character too. Sleeping is what these lazy dogs do most of their time. It is funny how they get tired after 10 or 15 minutes of playing. They get bored after few minutes.
Go for a walk with them. It is a great possibility that after a while bulldog will just turn around and started walking back or sit down. They are curious dogs and they have to take part in everything. What ever you may do, bulldog has to see it.
You have to be careful not to feed them too much. Believe me sometimes that will not be easy. They always seem hungry. They will eat everything you will give them. They do not stop. So it is you, who has to make sure they do not get overweight. You also have to make sure they exercise enough although it is not always their favorite activity.
These dogs are very friendly and they would not hurt any body. It is interesting that many people think they are violent. Their lower teeth jutting out of their mouth is probably funny to English bulldog owner, but a bit scary to other people, who do not know what these dogs are like. As a matter of fact they are appropriate for families with small kids. They get a long with children very well. English bulldogs are patient dogs.
English bulldogs are also very stubborn. Many bulldog owners say that they had problems training bulldogs. English bulldogs always want to have things done their way. But it is not impossible to train them. You just have to be patient. And do not forget that training starts when they are only puppies.
What they require is a lot of love. They need your presence and they are satisfied.
