The English bulldog was used as far back in the 16th century for entertainment and sporting events where the dogs would be wagered on to pin a bull’s head to the ground. Hence the name “bulldog”.
It was seen as somewhat of an animal gladiator, thus accounting for its muscular physique. However, this act would be prohibited in the late 18th century, England as it would leave most dogs severely or dead.
Of course today the English bulldog is less aggressive and muscular compared to its ancestral lineage due to lesser physical demands.
The English bulldog is a fun-loving dog with an affinity towards children. Known to be stubborn and withstanding, the English bulldog is a territorial animal and very loyal to its owner. These homely pets have a warm nature and are most mildly aggressive.
Due to its warm and fun-loving nature, the English bulldog would breed perfectly in an apartment setting where all its instincts would be stimulated. Just enough space for it to move around and interact with objects and not necessarily a large expanse of land to roam.
Due to their low-end endurance, these purebred dogs are naturally territorial and an enclosed or fenced environment would do. The English bulldog does better in a cooler climate as they become irritable in the summer and tend to get exhausted after movement.
The English bulldog has a unique physique which plays a major role in its aging process. The large upper body in proportion to its legs makes it difficult for this dog to move about for a long time so as to avoid wear and complications on the joints.
About 30 minutes of exercise would be enough for an English bulldog. A simple stroll in the area or walk down the block would keep it strong and healthy. Intervals of additional exercise are also ideal every 3-4hours about 10-15minutes.
A healthy routine that is just right is key when it comes to this dog’s exercise. Too much exercise, however, can develop into complications in the future.
The British bulldog has a nice silky coat that should be gently brushed every day with a soft-bristled brush due to its coat not being far from its skin.
These dogs don’t often require baths as some other adventurous dogs would, but it is necessary when it becomes visible they are dirty or smell offensive.
This should be done with shampoo for dogs. The English bulldogs unique wrinkled face should be wiped with a damp towel every day so as to avoid dirt and bacteria clogging up in the folds. Other areas the dog’s tongue cannot reach like the anus should be wiped also.
