This dog is wonderful with children and usually gets along with other dogs and pets in the family but it does require natural leadership and an assertive master who can display proper leadership skills.


This short-coated breed does not require much in grooming as its coat will be in top condition with once a week brushing.

The dog will need a natural leader who can display proper packleader skills to motivate this dog to training. Positive training methods will yield positive results.


The Original English Bulldogge is not a very active breed of dog, rather it is more of a laid back breed that will enjoy more being indoors watching T.V with its family rather than going outdoors. A daily walk should be enough to keep this breed healthy. For its low exercise needs, the dog is very suitable for apartment living and does not need a yard.
