They are very muscular in build and they have wrinkled faces with squished In noses. I’m going to give you a little bit of history on the bulldog, and then I will go into English Bulldog Training Tips.

Little History

The English Bulldog originated from the British Isles around the 13th-century, during the reign of King John. They had a blood sport called Bullbaiting, a stacked bull would fight a pack of dogs while spectators bet on them. These dogs were muscular, ferocious, brutes, they seemed to have no tolerance for pain. Around 1835 England banned this blood sport. After that the Bulldogs almost went in extinction, but people started transforming this breed into lovers not fighters. This breed is sweet, friendly, and mellow and they love children.

The first animal to all sports mascot was called Handsome Dan he was Yale’s university mascot the Bulldog.


Bulldogs need to have there faces cleaned often because of their wrinkles. I suggest using dog wipes or peroxide to keep clean regularly and to prevent moisture and food to build up in between the wrinkles causing irritation and infection. Also they need to be kept dried and you can use cornstarch for that.

The bulldog is not a sport dog but they do like their playtime. They are more of a laid back relaxing pet.

Bulldogs with their squished in noses get overheated quickly. Make sure they have fresh clean water available at all times.

We usually see bulldogs in commercials on skateboards and something on wheels. They do like wheels mine liked to go for rides in carts and in the wheelbarrow. He would try to get the tire or wheel if he didn’t get to get in it. So if you take them for rides just make sure you watch them carefully so they don’t get hurt.
