So you have decided on a Bulldog puppy. Congratulations. You should do some things and buy some things to make sure he settles in as fast as possible. Like any puppy he is going to be nervous of his new house and missing his mum with his fantastic litter mates.
Where will be your puppy going to sleep? I would suggest whilst he’s young that a room having a hard non porous floor needs to be your selection. Accidents will probably be inevitable and you don’t wish to have to often be on your hands and knees scrubbing the carpet. We use baby stair gates to make sure we could keep our puppy in a when we should.
What is he going to sleep on?
Please purchase a plastic bed to suit your needs puppy. He will be testing his teeth on everything along with a wicker bed will be demolished in a day or two. Ensure the bed is plenty sufficient as well.
Your Bulldog puppy will grow really fast and definitely will soon outgrow the smaller puppy beds that exist. Cover his bed with lots of washable blankets. I use specially made dog blankets who have rubber on one side as well as a man made fleece like fabric on the other since they’re machine washable and are available out from the spin dryer almost bone dry.
Buy a couple of big round stainless-steel bowls to your puppy. They are non chew-able, long lasting plus much more hygienic.
If to want to invest inside a pet crate as soon as well as dog bed. Dog crates are constructed with thick wire and they are collapsible when not in use but are invaluable when taking your dog to your show. Get the puppy used to the crate when you can so that when you put him inside it in the car he can feel safe and relaxed.
Puppy Proof Your Garden.
This is typical sense really. Bulldogs rarely wander but all puppies are inquisitive so ensure your fence is safe without holes within it especially low down at walk out. Place some fine wire mess low down on any wrought iron gates. If you have a pool ensure it is securely covered as although bulldogs can swim they’re not as able as other breeds.
