Choosing the right French Bulldog puppy breeder is an important decision, as it will have a significant impact on the health and well-being of your new Frenchie puppy. With the rise in popularity of being a dog breeder, a French Bulldog breeder in particular, it has become increasingly difficult to find trusted, reputable, and knowledgeable breeders. Luckily for you, we have been breeding Frenchies for seven years. This gives us the experience and knowledge that will be evident to you when you reach out to us for your new puppy. Here are some tips to help you choose the right breeder:
1. Research different breeds.
Learn about the different breeds of dogs and what their specific needs and characteristics are. This will help you decide which breed is right for you. Likely you have your heart set on a French Bulldog, which is why you are here! At Blue Bayou Frenchies we are committed to breeding high-quality french bulldogs that align with the breed standard as set forth by the American Kennel Club. https://www.akc.org/dog-breeds/french-bulldog/
2. Visit the Frenchie breeder.
Schedule a visit to the breeder's facility so you can see where the puppies are raised and meet the parents. This will give you an idea of the environment in which the puppies were raised and the overall health of the breeding dogs. This is in our opinion one of the easiest ways to tell the difference between ethical, responsible, and professional breeders from those that run what are often called puppy mills. At Blue Bayou Frenchies, we always welcome potential clients who would like to make these observations for your decision-making. For those who are not in the San Francisco Bay Area, we can easily schedule facetime calls to show you our puppies and the environment they are raised in.
3. Ask for references.
Ask the breeder for references from previous puppy buyers. Contact them and ask about their experiences with the breeder and their puppies. The Blue Bayou Frenchies Google Business profile is filled with reviews from customers who have been happy with their experience working with us. I encourage you to check that out here. https://goo.gl/maps/dDHRYE27QGgmv6pD9
4. Check the Frenchie puppy's health.
Make sure the puppy you are interested in has been examined by a veterinarian and has received all necessary vaccinations and deworming.
5. Evaluate the French Bulldog breeder's care.
Observe the breeder's level of care and attention to the puppies, and their willingness to answer your questions and provide you with information about the breed and care of the puppies.
In summary, finding a reputable breeder who is committed to breeding healthy and well-adjusted puppies is crucial for ensuring that you bring home a happy and healthy new addition to your family. It's important to do your research, visit the breeder, and ask for references to make sure you're getting the best possible puppy.
