The French Bulldog, like many other companion dog breeds, requires close contact with humans. They have fairly minimal exercise needs, but do require at least daily short walks. The French Bulldog is sometimes called “Frog dog” or a “Clown dog”. Frog dog is in reference to the unique way they sit with hind legs spread out. Clown dog is because they are known to be fun loving vivacious “clowns of the dog world”. Their calm nature makes them an excellent choice for apartment dwellers, as does their sensible attitude towards barking.
