Only four days until the new baby arrives. I have the crate, the food, the playpen, some toys and lots and lots of love waiting!!!
I am not sure how bug she will be at first, but I also have some doggie shirts and dresses!!! (left over from my other puppies) We even had a visit from our trainer last night and received instructions on introducing the baby into the pack and how to intergrate her.

I am super excited now!!!

I have three Frenchies a choc Lab and a Basset hound. My Frenchies all get along great with each other. The dogs from rescue sights were probably not trained properly or were abused and that is why they are surrendered. I love my Frenchies and could never be without many!!!!

GO FRENCHIES!!!!

Toys, Toys and did I mention toys!!! My frienchies love the fleece braided rope toys, plain hard sterilized bones. Stay away from Marrow becuase sensative tummies can not tolerate it very well. Make sure you have a bag of dog food your puppy is currently eating. Some sort of collar and lead. Lots of floor cleaner for the accidents. Frenchies can sometimes be difficult to house train. A crate or playpen to confine puppy. Stuffies, stuffies and stuffies!!!! My girls prefer the ones on the smaller side.

I am sure there is more but at the moment I am lost for words!!!

French Bulldog > Dog walker or daycare?

I agree with you Chauncey too. If you can walk them in the morning and at night that is good. You did do the dog walker when the pup was younger. It is hard for any pup to stay in a crate for 10 plus hours every day.

Frenchies are however, people dogs. They like the company of people so you must be committed to spending your evenings with your dog. It is hard when you are a working family becuase you have other commitments as well but it is definately worth the hard work.

I love my Frenchies!!!!

Hold a tasty treat in front of his nose and treat him when he gets up. Take a step and if he follows, treat again. do this a few times and use lots of praise aand he should get up again. I have a stubborn puppy also. She just sits and looks at me. Sometimes I just pick her up and carry her to the sidewalk and then she will start walking. Mine do not like wet grass so they stay put when the ground is wet.

The potty issue is not going to be a big issue its the fact of being home alone that is the bigger issue. Frenchies are social creatures and some do not do well being left alone. Doggie day care or a pet walker would work. If you get a frenchie be prepared to dedicate your time to the dog in the evenings.

Also please read up on the health issues. My girls came from Oklahoma and in the first month we spent hundreds on vet bills and that is cheap. Look to a well established breeder or rescue from FBRN becuase it is way better to spend more money up front on a genetically healthy dog than to shell out thousands in vet bills.

My breeder has some older puppies and some adult dogs for sale. Mittens brother is available.
