If you are thinking about purchasing an English bulldog, you should think about these pros and cons before making the final decision.
Temperament: one of the main benefits of the dog is that he has a great character; consequently, he easily gets along with the relatives. He also easily gets along with other pets. If you have small children, you don’t need to be worried of leaving them around the dog.
Requires little space: since he doesn’t like exercising, he doesn’t demand plenty of exercising space.
Rarely barks: unlike other dogs that bark unnecessarily, the English bulldog rarely barks. For instance, when he is very hungry or when he sees a total stranger. The easy going nature of the dog means that you won’t ever have complaints from neighbors stating that the dog is disturbing the peace.
Has a ferocious appearance: the ferocious expression of the dog will discourage intruders from getting into your house or compound; hence, when you leave the dog in your house, you are confident that no one will get into your house.
Easy to take care of: the dog’s coat is easy to take care of since you can easily attend to it without taking the dog to a puppy beauty parlor. The only thing you will need to do is to sometimes trim his toe nails. Since he tends to lose easily, you should also brush his coat regularly to remove loose fur.
One of the disadvantages is that he’s independently minded making it difficult to train him. In addition, he tends to think that he’s the one in charge which further makes it hard to train him.
To live in harmony with him, you need to ensure he understands that you are the one in control.
Another disadvantage is that he likes eating and hates exercising. Both of these attributes mean that he can gain a whole lot of weight which may be dangerous to him. To ensure that he does not gain too much weight, you should ration the amount of food you feed him. You should also engage him in mild exercises.
