When bringing your new addition home we recommend puppy proofing your houses, toxic plants, cords/wired, dangerous blinds, rodent poison, etc
Give your new puppy a small space to get acquainted, a laundry room, bathroom, bedroom or kitchen is a good start. You can use baby gates or a puppy play pen! I like to kennel train, associating a kennel as a safe cozy place. I feed the puppy in there and also use it for when I leave the house. If your puppy cry’s in the crate it should only take a couple days for your puppy to get used to his new safe place, as long as the puppy isn’t crying out of pain you can cover the kennel with a blanket for nap times, make sure your puppy never wears a collar in the kennel. Your puppy should be supervised at all times to prevent choking, chewing and accidents.
I will send a bag of food home when your puppy goes home. I feed VICTOR.
I do soak the kibble in hot water until kibble expands.
I only feed out of stainless steel to prevent allergies and mouth ulcers.
Please provide fresh water available at all times. I offer puppies a small amount of food 3 times a day I will post a feeding chart below.
Take your new puppy out as often as possible, especially after a meal or water intake. Consistency is key! TIP: Puppies are known to sometime eat their poop, give them pineapple or pineapple juice and they won’t go near their poop.
Frenchies don’t need to be brushed and shed more at different times of the year, for the most part they don’t shed to bad.
Keep the folds of your frenchies face dry and clean, use a mild Castile soap and warm water on a washcloth and dry.
I use baby shampoo or Castile soap to wash my dogs. Maintain their ears with a cotton swab and witch hazel or hydrogen peroxide. To help with tear stain add a small amount of ACV to their daily water!
Keep nails clipped and I recommend keeping up with this and getting them used to this as a puppy, offer a reward after!
I recommend waiting until Atleast two rounds of vaccinations before you introduce your puppy to other pets! I do not recommend going to parks or public areas with your puppy until FULLY vaccinated! Make sure to give everyone lot of love and praise when introducing each other so no jealousy occurs! FACT: french bulldogs can’t swim! Watch them around water and I advise you get a life jacket!
