Frenchie Bulldog Pet Supply
Each month, Frenchie Bulldog partners up with different animal charities from around the country who are doing exemplary work in rescue, rehabilitation, sheltering and fostering. This month, we are partnering with Road Dogs & Rescue (roadogsandrescue.org), a Burbank, California-based charity focusing on Pit Bulls and American Bulldog breeds.
Having a dog for a pet is so common that it could be considered a rite of passage. Most Americans own one or more pets throughout their lives and dogs are among the most common. To anyone about to go through the exciting experience of canine cohabitation for the first time, here are some things you might consider...
It’s official!—Summertime is here! A time when Alaskans rejoice, and when Arizonans hide in their air-conditioned homes. But what of dogs?—what do they like to do in the summer? The reality for most dogs is that their existence is pretty closely tied to the realities of their owner’s lifestyle.
Face it: As a dog owner, you will inevitably go through many pet accessories as they break down over time due to soiling and wear & tear. Your pup is growing after all, and exploring the environment all around them, and so they’re going to need accessories—leashes, harnesses, collars, etc.—that will go the distance with them as they venture out into the world.
You’ve probably also heard of Schutzhund, (German for “protection dog”) a sport for dogs which developed in Germany in the early 1900s and where all the commands are given in German. As Schutzhund requires canines to carry out complex maneuvers through obstacles based on their owner’s commands, the sharp consonant sounds of the German language (often single syllable) are ideal for communicating clearly and eliciting the desired results.
In case it was not abundantly clear, one of Frenchie Bulldog’s featured releases for June is the RAINBOW Pop collection. When your pup is dipped in such colorful ‘drip’, they’ll be the eye-catchingest of dogs strolling to the park. Strap Harness, Duo-Reversible Harness, Comfort Collar—all of our Elevated Pet Essentials have been given the full multi-color treatment.
It’s hard to name a better inter-species team-up than human beings and dogs. In contrast to other pets, canines are highly trainable and willing to take our lead in many useful ways: Sled dogs and police K9 units can enthusiastically perform physical work alongside their humans, while service dogs drastically improve the quality of life of individuals. Yet the true beauty of the human-dog relationship is companionship, and since companionship doesn’t require size, strength, or resilience, it has opened up the door for all sizes and shapes of dogs to be bred—including toy dogs, such as our beloved French Bulldogs.
The year is 1984. It’s Friday night. You drive your Gremlin to the video arcade and scoop all the change out of the cupholders before exiting the vehicle. Neon flashing lights cast a surreal glow on the arcade’s interior and rows of pinball machines emit various noises which blend into a bombastic hum.
Look at your pup. What do you see? An obedient, spirited friend? A docile lapdog? A precocious tyke? Are you aware that once upon a time your pup’s ancestors were fierce hunters who prowled the landscape felling gigantic prey, and moving swiftly, dangerously through the prehistoric world?
Animals don’t have the same hygiene standards (or tools) as humans. It’s not like our dogs can brush his own teeth or his own hair—so us owners have to do that for them. Just like when you have a self-care day and do your ten-step beauty routine, your dog needs to have their beauty routine done too. So, primp and pamper them with our easy “how to” guide on how to maintain your dog’s hygiene.
We’re going to state the obvious here: dogs are messy. Not just because they're furry and lick their own bodies, but because they're animals. And animals simply can’t clean up after themselves. If your dog spills their food, gets their muddy paws on the couch, or has an accident in the house they can’t exactly bend over and pick it up. So as a fur parent you’ll have to step in and save the day! But where to start? How do you clean up after a dog?
A competitive dog show involves a presentation of purebred dogs (although our favorite mutts are starting to carve out their own categories!). These delightful events are basically beauty pageants for dogs. It’s mostly just for fun and an excuse to watch a bunch of cute dogs, but the real purpose of dog shows is to evaluate quality breeding and the integrity of a breed. It’s the crème de la crème of dog breeds and if you’re interested in joining a pet show here are some things you should know.
