Living conditions of the French blue Bulldog
blue Bulldogs have the same conditions of the other breeds French Bulldogs and this some living conditions for this breed:
1-Always and only in a house.
The French Bulldog is an ideal apartment dog because it has short hair, very little drool, is not a too barking dog, and knows how to adapt to circumstances (frantic play or absolute tranquility) with great intelligence and intuition. He is very sensitive to the moods of his master.
2-French Bulldog in an Apartment:
life is perfect for this little mastiff. Rather calm by nature, especially in adulthood, he does not need to exercise intensely and will be satisfied with a small interior space.
A house with a garden will also suit him, but be careful not to leave it outside during hot weather or even in the middle of winter. Its flattened muzzle and lack of undercoat do not give it good resistance.
Moreover, being a very poor swimmer and having a tendency to sink, the presence of a water point in his environment could represent a danger.
3-Need for exercise/sports:
This brachycephalic breed (flattened muzzle) is not made for intense physical exercise but this stocky little dog still needs daily outings to be fully satisfied.
Its musculature and strong bones must be maintained and physical expenditure, even moderate, is necessary for this small dog who can quickly exceed its healthy weight if it is not sufficiently stimulated.
4-Travel / Ease of transport:
The small size of the French Bulldog could facilitate his transport, but it is not, and for two simple reasons:
First of all, the weight limit for dogs that can be transported easily and inexpensively, especially in trains, is 7 kg, but this sturdy little dog generally weighs around 10 kg, even if it seems less.
On the other hand, its flattened muzzle causes heavy breathing problems in this brachycephalic dog, so it will not be comfortable in confined and poorly ventilated places, as is often the case with conventional modes of transport (car, train, plane).
Blue Bulldog health problems

Blue Bulldog get cold easily
Some owners have stated the Blue Bulldog gets cold easily, we are unsure if this is just a myth or based on actual research. Either way, French Bulldogs can’t regulate their body temperature well. Having any Frenchie in a cold climate is not ideal due to their short coat. If you live in a cold climate there are ways you can keep your Frenchie warm.
