This loyal, affectionate breed is extrovert and sociable, a great companion for children, always desiring attention. Getting along well with other family pets, they may be quarrelsome with unfamiliar or strange dogs, possessing a strong sense of determination, being dominating and stubborn at times. At times, they snore while sleeping. During their puppy days, they are lively and energetic but get less active as they grow old.
Obedience and socialization training should be imparted since their puppy days to help them get along well with strangers. Be assertive to prevent it from being stubborn or emerging as the ‘pack leader’.
The Mini English Bulldog puppies should be fed at least 2 to 3 times a day when they are 2 to 4 months of age. The adult dog should be fed with high-quality dog food divided into equal meals. Overfeeding should be avoided.
