And aside from these, bulldogs are being also as playful, small, and intelligent dogs, having their adorable types of bar ears and of short muzzles. These dogs are in demand now, and for this reason, many breeders have decided on taking those cheap but irresponsible ways in generating these bulldogs.

In order to become one, they must need to put the dogs first before profit through practicing good techniques of breeding, taking good care for their litters, and becoming rigorous when it comes to their customer interactions.

Caring for them and selling them. Set up the whelping box. The box is often rectangular in form and this must be enough for keeping the puppies in. This must be provided with a soft and a clean bedding and as well as source of heat. Always monitor them. Place them in the box together with their mother but be sure to watch over them constantly.

Feed the puppies very well. After the puppies are born, feed them immediately and do this after every 2 to 4 hours. Make sure they are defecating and urinating properly. These type of bulldogs do no know how pee and to poo when born. So the mothers are going to stimulate these actions by licking on their genitals and their anuses after every mealtime.
