French Bulldog Training Tips: 5 Simple Ways To Train Your Dog

Properly training any dog is a necessary facet of their ownership. With a smart dog, like a French bulldog, training presents an owner with a few unique challenges. In order to help, we’ve come up with a list of five French bulldog training tips to help you get started on the right paw.

How To Train Your French Bulldog

For training, you will need a leash and harness or collar, your pet’s favorite treats, and your patience. French bulldogs get a bad reputation for sometimes being stubborn during training. This is partially due to their intelligence. Staying positive during the process will help greatly. Below are five French bulldog training tips to make the journey easier.

1. Keep Training Sessions Short

Since French bulldogs are intelligent, and puppies can only focus for short periods of time, they may get easily bored with training. Keep initial training sessions after you get your pup to a few minutes at a time. You can increase the length of sessions as you go.

2. Socialize Your French Bulldog Puppy

This is may be the most important training for a French bulldog. Without socialization, a Frenchie can become shy, aggressive, or territorial around new people and dogs. Make sure to introduce your puppy to plenty of new faces, dogs, and situations in your first few weeks with them.

3. Use Positive Reinforcement

French bulldogs are born people-pleasers. This makes them easy to train, as long as you’re willing to deal with a bit of stubbornness every once in a while. Keep their favorite treats on hand and shower them with lots of praise and affection when they do something you want.

4. Make Training Into A Game

Making training less boring for your French bulldog may seem like a challenge. However, it’ll be more fun for you and them in the long run if you incorporate training into play and your normal games. Give your Frenchie a command before throwing a ball, or hide treats for them to find.

5. Give Them Lots Of Chewing Options

A bored French bulldog may chew up your valuables and furniture if you let them. If you catch them chewing on one of your possessions, direct them towards a chew toy or bone. Punishment for bad behavior is not the way to train your dog. Instead, giving them plenty of appropriate options should discourage them from destroying your home.
