    Question Who else has raised their Frenchie from a puppy?

    Most of the questions I ask on here will be puppy specific, so I just want to get an idea of how many people have experience and wisdom!

    I have not raised a Frenchie puppy specifically, but raised many bulldog puppies

    Would you say their temperaments are pretty similar?

    I got Chelios when he was 8 months old, so he was past puppy stage.

    Absolutley not. Each pup will differ in temperament. Some pups are "docile" while others are "alpha". Some pups are big chewers while others just want to cuddle. Some are inbetween. The key to training each pup differs from their personality type, but the training should be very similar no matter what personality type you have. Consistency and leadership is the key. I find that many puppies end up being misbahaved due to the owner's ability to be consistent. (LIKE MY POOKIE BEAR!) I'm a softie when it comes to him and during his young puppy phase I did not take as much time as I should have with training. Now I am trying endlessly to reverse it but he's a smart little turd.

    Re: Who else has raised their Frenchie from a puppy?

    Thank you! That's very helpful. I live with my sister who is a school teacher currently on vacation. She thinks I should be the primary bearer of discipline since he's technically my dog, but I tell her that if I discipline him for something and she doesn't it will only confuse him. Consistence is key! Can I get an amen?

    We recently just got Hazel and she is almost 3 years old, but I have raised several English Bulldog pups, and as @bullmama said, it's all about the training. All pups are different and have different challenges, but are worth it in the end. They will try your patience, but just keep your cool and be patient and they will bring you more love than you could ever imagine.

    Re: Who else has raised their Frenchie from a puppy?

    Just remember and tell your sister the same thing, and you may already know this, but you can only discipline him for the things you catch him doing. After the fact he will not know what he is getting in trouble for. Plus on potty training, if he potties in the house it is your fault not his. It's your fault for not taking him out when he needed to go. At first you will think that's all you do is take him out and sometimes that's all you will do, but he will learn in time.

    Re: Who else has raised their Frenchie from a puppy?

    Frenchies have a bit of more energy than your typical english but that's not to say they aren't closely related. They are both in the smooshy face family which carries it's own issue's so in that sense yes they are quite similar. Bull headed, yep. both breeds. So typically I would raise them both the same. As far as heat, cold, grooming, all that's the same, only difference in the grooming dept. is frenchies ears are less likely to become infected because the get more air in there.

    I got Stella when she was just a pup. I have to say that she has probably been the most difficult puppy I have ever raised though. Lol

    Re: Who else has raised their Frenchie from a puppy?

    I have raised 6 EBs from pups and my Buster is half OEB, half FB. One major difference is how playful Buster is and I can see a real eagerness to please. It's like he'll run up along side me and look up and say, "Here I am, Mom! What can I do to please you?" He is an amazing puppy!
