French Bulldog Breeding

French Bulldog Breeding

Sharing is caring!


French bulldog breeding – French bulldogs are a popular breed of dog, and there’s no denying they’re cute. But prior to you going out and buying one, it’s essential to understand how French bulldogs are bred. You might be surprised at how different it is from how other dogs are created.

French bulldog breeders use very aggressive practices to breed dogs with specific characteristics.

I’m sure you’ve heard about French bulldogs and their distinctive features. You may have even seen one in person. But have you ever wondered how these dogs are bred?

French bulldog breeders are using very aggressive practices to breed dogs with specific characteristics, like the low-slung head and pushed-in face of the French bulldog. 

This is referred to as “selective breeding,” because they’re choosing to breed specific traits into their dogs (like a flat head) while preventing other features from being passed on by not allowing them to procreate (like a long nose).

These selective breeding practices can be beneficial when trying to create new breeds of animals or plants—but they can also lead to some unwanted side effects if done without careful consideration of genetics and genetic diversity.

French bulldog puppies usually come from artificial insemination.

Artificial insemination is a common breeding practice for French bulldogs. The process requires lots of equipment, including:

  • A room with a temperature-controlled environment
  • A bed that can be disinfected
  • A scale to weigh the puppies
  • An ultrasound machine so the breeder can see if there are any problems during pregnancy.

Surgery is usually required to deliver puppies.

You’ll want to be prepared for the possibility of surgery. The dam is too small, and the puppies’ heads are too large to deliver them naturally. 

If you’re concerned about having your dog undergo general anaesthesia, talk to your veterinarian about other options, like fetal monitoring or an epidural block.

If C-section surgery is needed during pregnancy, you must choose an experienced surgeon who can perform this procedure with minimal risk to both mother and pup.

Be aware that it can take a long time for french bulldogs to conceive.

It can take a long time for french bulldogs to conceive. If you and your partner are considering breeding french bulldogs, you need to be aware of this. 

The breed’s fertility rate is meagre, meaning most dogs will not be able to conceive naturally or with artificial insemination. Remember that it could take several years before your female dog conceives and gives birth successfully.

Miscarriage rates are also high among french bulldogs, so be prepared for the possibility that one or more pregnancies may end that way if she does get pregnant. 

When a female dog does give birth, her gestation period ranges from 63–68 days—much longer than other breeds’ gestation periods (about 60 days).

A dog that has undergone a C-section should not breed again.

If your dog has undergone a C-section to give birth and is still healing, you should not breed her again. 

The procedure itself is risky, and the dog’s body will not be able to handle another pregnancy. 

It could also lead to health problems for your pet if she tries to carry a litter to term.

A good breeder may mate the Frenchie with a pug to reduce the litter size or increase the chances of natural delivery.

The pug’s smaller litter size and natural delivery make this an appealing option for many breeders. However, there is no guarantee that an F1 hybrid from such a pairing will have these desirable traits.

The Frenchie’s giant head, short nose, and flat face can make it difficult for her to give birth naturally. She may need assistance from her human family members or even veterinary intervention during labour to help her successfully deliver her babies. 

This is another reason some breeders choose to mate French bulldogs with other breeds to produce litters that are easier for mommies.

Some of the costs associated with breeding include veterinary care, stud fees, and registration fees.

Vet bills can be pretty expensive for a litter of puppies, especially if one or more are ill or injured. 

Stud fees cover any expenses related to the semen used for breeding (including transportation costs). You may also need to pay for DNA testing if you register your dog’s pedigree with particular organizations or registries. 

Registration fees vary from organization to organization but are generally around $100 per litter (this covers the registration of all puppies born in the same litter). 

Additional charges are involved if you plan on registering your puppy with an official kennel club such as AKC (American Kennel Club) or CKC (Canadian Kennel Club).

$70-$110—AKC registration fee; this includes health certificate(s), microchip implantation, genetic testing (if necessary), etc.

$60-$85—CKC registration fee; this includes health certificate(s), microchip implantation, and genetic testing (if required).

Reasons to breed your dog.

The best reason to breed your dog is that you love your pedigree and want to produce more healthy good-quality puppies.

You may be interested in breeding for other reasons:

  • You want to share your dog with other people.
  • You want to make some money from selling the puppies and showing them at competitions such as dog shows or agility trials.
  • Your family has been involved in breeding for generations, so you feel strongly about continuing, even if it doesn’t have any obvious financial benefit for you.
  • You’re hoping that producing more dogs like yours (of course) will help save a breed from extinction. Many species are endangered due to a lack of interest in them coupled with increased demand for purebreds, making it difficult for small-scale breeders who don’t have enough funds or space available at their homes.

The health risks associated with Frenchie breeding make it advisable for owners to get their dogs spayed or neutered.

For your bulldog’s health, it is advised that they be spayed or neutered. French bulldogs are prone to health problems such as brachycephalic airway obstruction syndrome, which is caused by the shortness of their snouts and can cause life-threatening breathing issues.

Brachycephalic airway obstruction syndrome can lead to sleep apnea, which causes dogs to stop breathing while they sleep; this disorder can also lead to heart disease in older dogs due to stress on the heart muscle.

Spaying and neutering prevent these issues from developing and even reverse some conditions like testicular cancer after they appear in dogs who were not fixed before they reached sexual maturity (usually around six months). Spaying female dogs also reduce their risk for uterine cancer by 90%.

Pug breeding with Frenchies carries many similar risks. Pug puppies show identical symptoms when born prematurely with lower birth weights than non-brachycephalic breeds due to their large heads being unable to fit through the birth canal without assistance from C-section delivery methods.


It’s essential to understand what goes into breeding French Bulldogs, but it’s also important to remember that these dogs are worth it. They can be beautiful pets who bring joy and companionship into people’s lives. The hard work of breeders ensures that these dogs have a good quality of life, which is why many people choose them over other breeds.
