Is My French Bulldog Potty Trained Before Arrival in My Home?

Is My French Bulldog Potty Trained Before Arrival in My Home?

You may wonder, “Is my French Bulldog potty trained before joining me in my home?” The answer is yes and no. We use a litter box filled with recycled newspaper pellets to train our Frenchie pups. The box is placed in their area around 4-5 weeks old and they are encouraged to use it. This method works great and we encourage you to continue using it until they have their full series of shots as puppy diseases like parvo can hide out in the ground. Place the box next to the door so it’s an easy transition for them. 

You may have reasons for continuing to use this system. 

  • You may live in an apartment and getting your pup out in time may be a bit of a hassle. 
  • One may be leery of taking the pup outside when they have to go in the middle of the night. 
  • You may have mobility issues and taking your pup outside just isn’t feasible. 
  • You may work long shifts and need a space for them to relieve themselves while you’re away. 
  • When you have in climate weather this may be a back up method for your pup. 
  • You may have a busy schedule.
  • Or you may just want to because this method would work best for you. 

5 Easy Steps We Use-French Bulldog Potty Trained-Litter Box

  1. Find a location. Choose a spot for your litter box. This needs to be away from the where he sleeps and eats. If you plan on keeping you pup in a playpen while away longer than he could hold it, place the litter box as far away from their sleeping area and food & water as possible. You may think about adding two boxes. One in the playpen and one where he has access to outside of the playpen. If you are using this as an interim until your pup receives shots, a good place to place the box is next to the door. This makes an easy transition to taking your pup outside to potty when they are ready to do so. 
  2. Create a routine. Place your pup in the litter box and tell them “go potty” after he wakes up in the morning, after eating & drinking, after playing hard, and after getting up from a nap. You may consider setting a timer for every hour and increase the time until he is trained. Be consistent with the command you use. Go pee sounds different than go potty. Chose one. 
  3. Give positive reinforcement. When your pup potties or poos in the box give lots of praise using the proper voice inflection. 
  4. Celebrate. When your Frenchie pup easily goes in the litter box  shower him with praise and love so he knows it’s a positive experience to go in the box. 
  5. Be patient. Accidents are likely to happen. When this occurs, clean it up, increase the positive reinforcement, and adjust your timer to take your pup to the box more often. 

Items needed to litter box train French Bulldogs

  1. litter box with a lip to allow easy entry into the box. 
  2. Pellets or pee pads for the box. 
  3. scoop to remove waste. 

Order Potty training on Amazon:* litter boxPelletsScoop

There are several different types of pellets for litter box training. You can even use pee pads. Personally, I really don’t care for pee pads. The pups tear them up, they are a choking hazard, and terrible for the environment. I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ll be using recycled newspaper pellets. The wood pellets could potentially be toxic to your pup if they eat them. You have to remember as a pup everything is fun including playing in the pellets and chomping on them. Newspaper is the safest and most eco-friendly option. If you have access to a Tractor Supply Story you can get the best deal on the newspaper pellets for horses. It’s fine it doesn’t say dog as they are the same thing. I’ll tell you a litter secret. Anything that’s packaged for dogs they increase the price even though it’s identical. You can also purchase the pellets at a pet store or online here via Amazon. Order the biggest bag as you will go through it quickly. 

Directions on how to use the litter box. 

  1. Spread 1-3 inches of pellets evenly over the bottom of the litter box. 
  2. Remove soiled litter with a scoop daily. I do this anytime I see poo. 
  3. Refill with new litter. I suggest cleaning it weekly with soap and warm water. 

Please remember that when a pup comes into your home you will need to establish his potty training habits. Congrats on your new Frenchie pup and good luck on litter training French Bulldogs. I believe you will be happy with the results.

Teach Your French Bulldog to Come

Teach Your French Bulldog to Come

When bringing your Frenchie home make sure to teach your French Bulldog to come. It may be cute to watch your little one run away while you chase him and scoop him in your arms. But what you are teaching him is it’s OK to run away from you. This won’t be cute when he is 20+lbs and a lot faster than you or when there’s a car coming and it’s a life and death matter for him to listen. I suggest you and everyone in the household start as soon as your pup arrives and I’ll give you some pointers. I am by no means a certified dog trainer as of yet. You never know when or if I will do so as I am a learner and love to collect certifications. 🙂 I will give you best practices in my almost 40 years of being born into the dog breeding world. 

First, Frenchies are a braceycephalic breed. This means they have a short nose. Everyone talks about the disadvantages of this with their breathing but did you know it’s actually a benefit for them in receiving visual cues from you? Those wide eyes and short noses allow them to see your cues better and do the command you are visually cueing them to do. Every since I learned this, almost 20 years ago, I’ve incorporated visual cues into my communications with my flat nosed friends and it works. 

With almost every command, I start with a snap, cue with my finger , and state the command with my voice. The snap alerts him that you are about to give a command which gives him the opportunity to listen to your voice and/or look to your hand for the cue.

Teach your French Bulldog to come

  1. Put a leash and collar on your Frenchie. 
  2. Go down to his level. Snap. Point Finger towards yourself.  Pull on leash while saying come. 
  3. When he gets to you reward him with praise, pets, and if desired a healthy treat. 

Once he’s mastered the leash, remove it and practice in a safe enclosed environment.

Treats or No Treats? 

I typically do not use treats as I believe my love and praise should be all they need but I totally get why you would want to use a treat. You will need to practice your own reward system that works for you and your pup.

In real life, when you tell your pup to come and he just looks at you like you are crazy you have to do something about it. I go directly to them and pull them back to where they were supposed to come. Then I give praise and love like they did what I said. The dragging shouldn’t be fun but shouldn’t harm them in any way either.  I can allow my Frenchies outside with me now, snap my fingers, and tell them to come. They listen which is an important aspect of safety. Make the time to go practice the come command with your Frenchie.

5 Tips-Teach Your Frenchie Biting on Fingers is not OK. 

5 Tips-Teach Your Frenchie Biting on Fingers is not OK.

When your little ones arrives you will almost 100% guaranteed need to teach your Frenchie biting on fingers is not an acceptable practice. Puppies are like toddlers. They learn by putting things in their mouth including your fingers. It might seem kind of cute at 4lbs but remember anything that won’t be cute full grown needs to be addressed as a pup. One of the biggest reasons dogs are placed in rescues is due to nipping or biting. Let’s nip this in the bud at an early age and create your own good Frenchie citizen. 

#1 Get the whole family on board to train your Frenchie biting on fingers is not ok.

Frenchie pups want to play and your fingers look like a great play toy. Discuss with the whole family how important it is to no engage with teasing/playing with pups via their own fingers. I’ve noticed sometimes kiddos and teenagers think it’s funny. 

#2 Don’t put your fingers in their mouth. 

I see a post almost every day, “How do I train my Frenchie to not bite my fingers.” Rule #1. Don’t let them put your fingers in their mouth. 🙂 

#3 Say no & redirect

Firmly say no and redirect with a toy. 

#4 Use the calming hold technique to train your Frenchie biting on fingers isn’t ok

If they are still persistent after the no and redirect, use the calming hold technique. You pick your pup up in a vertical position, place him firmly against one side of your body, place your arm that’s on the same side firmly over the front of his body, wrap your fingers around the base of the pups inside leg. This keeps your fingers out of the way of their mouth and typically calms him down. If the squirming continues use your other arm to hold across the bottom half.

I’m a 3rd generation breeder and this is what I have done since I can remember…probably around 5 years old. It works. I have taught my sons (5 &7 years old currently) to do so as well. They do it and it works for even the kiddos. You hold them like this for a minute or two and can put him back down. If the behavior continues, keep on repeating this until he stops. 

#5 Place in a crate or playpen for a time out. 

If all else fails place him in his crate or playpen away far away from your fingers. Give him time to play with toys. After 5-10 minutes, bring him back out. He may just need to run out some energy. 

Remember bringing a Frenchie pup into your home is a really exciting and fun experience but you will need to be prepared to teach your Frenchie biting on fingers is not OK. Good luck and happy training. We’d love to hear from you on how these tips worked for you.

How to Potty Train Your French Bulldog

How to Potty Train Your French Bulldog

So you have a new Frenchie coming to join you! Congrats! It’s an exciting time in your life and you will want to start to potty train your French Bulldog puppy the moment he arrives. You want to start the potty training process early in their life but realize just like human babies every Frenchie pup will potty train at different rates. I really want for you to be successful at this as training issues are one of the most common reasons a dog is turned into a shelter. I do not want that for my Frenchie pups or any Frenchie for that matter. It’s important that from the get go you are consistent and you housetrain them correctly from the beginning.

Keep your Frenchies space small & clean

In the wild, puppies naturally learn to not go the bathroom where they sleep or eat. When the pups are small the Frenchie momma immediately cleans up after her little ones when they pee or poo. Without the scent of pee/poo around the puppies do no associate the area with relieving themselves. How can we take advantage of this? 

  1. Crate train your pup. A pup doesn’t usually want to dirty his own space. Keep the space small and increase it as your pup grows and/or shows he’s trustworthy. 
  2. Utilize a playpen. If you let your pup roam the whole house, he can easily go to a corner of the house that far away from where he eats and sleeps to relieve himself. Instead of letting your pup roam, place him in his playpen when you’re eyeballs are not directly on him. As he becomes trustworthy in that space increase the size of the space he’s allowed to be in unattended. 
  3. If your pup pees or poos in the house, clean it up and deodorize it immediately

Keep Your Frenchie on a Schedule

Your Frenchie pup not only needs to associate not to pee in the house but also that the outdoors is for going to the bathroom. How do you do this? By implementing a schedule

  1. A young pup may need to be taken out once every hour. As he grows, the time between bathroom breaks will increase. Take the cues from your own Frenchie pup. If he pees before the house at the 45 minute mark, then you may need to take him out every 45 minutes. Your Frenchie will likely be able to hold it twice as long during the night time. I have found a 10 week old Frenchie when sleeping with me, can hold it most of the night. If I crate train, then it’s a shorter amount of time. 
  2. Take him outside after every feeding, waking up, and after playing. 
  3. If you catch your pup in the act, swoop him up, take him outside, and show him where he should go. It’s not suggested to discipline him for making a mistake. 

Use Verbal Cues & Praise your Frenchie

When taking your Frenchie outside, cue that it’s time to go potty. Say go potty or go pee. Choose one phrase and stick with it. This is not the time to play or pet him. You ignore him until he does his business and/or continue to cue him to potty. I usually wait until they are about half way through going and then begin praising by saying good boy or girl repeatedly and when they are complete I pet them while continuing the praise. If you choose to use treats, this is the time to give him one. I always say my love and attention should be all they need so I don’t personally give treats but I understand why you would choose to do so. 

Why does my Frenchie target the carpet? 

You will find your Frenchie pup will target the carpet that they find far away from where he sleeps and eats. Why is this? Because the carpet is soft under their paws and makes them think they are standing on grass. If you can, block of any carpeted area while potty training. 

What about puppy pads? 

I am not a huge fan of puppy pads. One, they are terrible for the environment. Two, you want to begin training your pup the way you want them to be potty trained as an adult. It’s confusing to change methods. Three, they tend to play with them and tear them apart which is a choking hazard.  I understand you may be using them until your pup gets its full series of shots, especially if you live in an apartment complex. My suggestions is to place  the potty pad as close to the door as you can or even on the balcony if you have one. This way they associate the door with going to the bathroom and it’s just a few more steps outside to go in the great outdoors. You may even consider a grass pad made for pups. 

Again there’s nothing more fun than brining home a new Frenchie pup. Your pup relies on you to be consistent so he can learn  good manners so he can become a proper canine citizen and seamlessly mesh into your families life.

What is the difference between congenital and genetic issues in French Bulldogs?

What is the difference between congenital and genetic issues in French Bulldogs? The French Bulldog of Colorado Blog

Many people do not know the difference between congenital and genetic issues in French Bulldogs. I would say even many breeders out there do not even know the difference between the two words. We want to help you understand the difference. Often having a good set of knowledge will help you better manage your mind if you face either issue. 

So what is the difference between the two? Glad you asked. Genetic means it was passed on from the parents. Some things are dominant meaning they only need one copy to display the characteristic. Others are recessive meaning they receive one copy from the mom and one copy from the dad for a total of two copies to display the characteristic. Coat color examples for this are merle coloring. In order to express merle the puppy needs only one copy of the gene to do so. If they are not merle then they do not carry the gene. In order to be blue the pup much carry two copies of the blue gene to express this characteristic. In breeding when concerned with health, you are mostly concerned with the recessive characteristics that could pop up in your Frenchie puppies. There are 5 of the most common things that can be passed down among Frenchie’s. We are currently working on having testing done on each of our Frenchie’s and awaiting the first set of results from our males.

That being said we have found in the 20+ years we’ve had Frenchie’s that there are more congenital issues (although still rare) then genetic. Congenital means they were born with it and it wasn’t passed down from the parents. Think about thalidomide and how women experiencing nausea who took this had babies with missing limbs. Missing limbs were not passed down from the parents but there was a transcription error in the formation of the baby. Most congenital issues are caused by abnormal genetic coding when building the body in utero such as single gene defects and chromosomal abnormalities. Other ways they can inherit congenital characteristics is via environmental teratogens (chemical exposure) and micronutrient deficiencies (think cleft palate). Technically, a genetic issue they puppy would be born with but I want for you to just understand that there is a difference. Congenital defects are not passed down from parents and may be detected at different times in a pups life. It may be seen at birth, as a young pup, as an adult, in older age, or may never be detected. Some congenital issues can be seen in the heart, gi tract, urinary tract, etc… 

Now you know the difference between genetic and congenital characteristics. DNA testing can help with some of the issues a Frenchie could display but that does not mean your Frenchie will not have a congenital issue that pops up later in life. Loving a Frenchie, a kid, a spouse always comes with a little risk. I’ve always viewed it as at least I had the opportunity to love this person, kiddo, or pet and it is a reminder to love each one just a little more each day because these are things out of our control. Here are a few things we do to keep our pups as healthy as possible: 1. We give multivitamins to all of our Frenchie’s to make sure mom isn’t deficient in anything even before she is pregnant. 2. Each Frenchie gets a cup of cooked fresh food daily instead of just giving kibble. 3. Our males have been genetically tested and we are next working on our females to ensure they are properly matched. 4. We proved a 2 year health guarantee on genetics and congenital defects. 5. We use “clean” cleaning products to prevent the momma being exposed to harmful chemicals. 

If I live out of state, how will I receive my Frenchie?

If I live out of state, how will I receive my Frenchie? the French Bulldog of Colorado Blog

Many people ask, “If I live out of state, how will I receive my Frenchie?” We realize you need to figure out the logistics and some of you don’t have time to make a long trip happen.  Let’s go over all of the options you have for receiving your little one. 

Pick-up in Colorado Springs

This option is free of charge and we can arrange pick up at either location. Puppies are always with one of us so no strangers in transporting. You are given the address a few days before your arrival. 

Meet you at the Colorado Springs airport. 

This option is free of charge as well. Confirm your flight plans with us to make sure we can meet you there at the time of arrival. Please note the location of the airport. The Denver airport require transportation fees which must be prearranged before booking. 

Use of a flight nanny. 

A flight nanny can bring your Frenchie to the nearest major airport within the 48 states. Fees for this are typically $800. Your baby will ride in luxury under the seat in the cabin area of the plane. Typically I, Amanda, will bring your baby to you. Arrangements must be made ahead of time and paid ($300) before booking the flight. We allow puppies to be flown at 12 weeks old or later. We can also fly to Alaska and Canada at higher rates.

Drive Part Way

Our Frenchie Care Specialist has some availability to meet you part way. She will travel up to 3 hours one way. The fee for this is $350. 

Specials on transportation

Sometimes we run specials on transportation if we know we are going to be going there anyway. Don’t count on this but feel free to ask.

What airlines allow French Bulldogs to fly in the cabin?

What airlines allow French Bulldogs to fly in the cabin? The French Bulldog of Colorado Blog

We are often asked, “What airlines allow French Bulldogs to fly in the cabin?” There’s confusion as to whether they can fly or not. Snub nosed dogs like Frenchies cannot fly in the cargo area of the plane but they can fly in the cabin of the plane underneath your seat. There are some things to consider but this is not an exclusive list. You must call the airline to confirm you are following all rules they have as each airline is different. 

  • Most airlines have a minimum age of 8-10 weeks old. (United is different and we do not recomment them if you’re picking up a puppy). 
  • You must have a kennel of some sort that fits under the seat. We recommend soft ones as they can more easily fit. 
  • Puppies must be up to date on shots. Some airlines ask for documentation some do not. 
  • Most airlines typically require a rabies shot if over 16 weeks old. 
  • Most have the requirement that they are 20lbs are less. Some airlines weigh them and some do not. 
  • Your Frenchie must have room to stand up and turn around in the kennel. 

Tips for flying with your Frenchie: 

  • Book a seat in the aisle so your Frenchie has more air flow to stay cool. 
  • Typically they do not need to be fed during a typical US flight but bring dog food and collapsible bowls in case your flight is delayed. If my travel is 8 hours or less, I do not feed them as I do not want to deal with pooping. If your Frenchie puppy is on the smaller, you may consider feeding but typically it’s not necessary. 
  • Place puppy pads at the bottom of the kennel in case your pup has an accident. This way you can easily clean it up. 
  • Don’t act nervous about flying with your pup. Your Frenchie pics up on your energy and will act accordingly. I literally have flown with 50 or more different Frenchies. None of them have given me any trouble but I hear about it from others. 
  • Visit the airlines pet policy page to understand the guidelines. 
  • Call the airlines to confirm any questions you need clarification. 

My favorite airlines to fly with are Frontier and American Airlines. On Frontier I can book my pet when I book my flight and there’s no need to check in when I arrive. American Airlines I can take two puppies in one kennel as long as they weigh under 20lbs (check-in required and they weigh them). My least favorite airline for flying puppies is United. Do not use them if your puppy is under 16 weeks old. You likely will not get them on the plane.

Airlines that allow pets to fly in the cabin (Google airline + travel with pet in cabin):

  • American Airlines
  • Frontier
  • Southwest
  • Delta
  • United
  • Alaskan Airlines

Will my Frenchie come with a health guarantee?

Will my Frenchie come with a health guarantee? The French Bulldog of Colorado Blog

As a potential Frenchie owner you may be wondering, “Will my Frenchie come with a health guarantee? The answer is yes. We provide a two year health guarantee on genetics. Before you pick up your puppy we will email your health guarantee which also serves as a receipt as well. You will e-sign it before pickup and a copy will be emailed to you as well. 

Before leaving us your puppy will be checked out by the vet and will have a clean bill of health. Part of the health guarantee states you have 48 hours to take your puppy to the vet for a puppy wellness checkup (96 hours if picking up on the weekend). This is important to make sure your vet agrees with our vet. If something were to appear in the check-up, you are to contact us immediately so we can deal with the issue immediately. 

You will have access to the health guarantee in The Prep for Your French Bulldog course. In one video we review the health guarantee in depth and you have a pdf version accessible to review as well. If you have questions, please ask. 

How old should my French Bulldog be before being taken to the park?

How old should my French Bulldog be before being taken to the park? The French Bulldog of Colorado Blog

How old should my French Bulldog be before being taken to the park is a great question. We say around 16 weeks old after your little one has had his/her full series of shots. We give a combination shot called DA2PP at 8 weeks old. Typically you pick up your puppy around 10 weeks old. Your puppy needs two more shots in the series to have it’s full immune response. Each puppy has a different immune response to the first and second shot. Some will a little response, some a big response, and the rest will be in between. This means they are not fully protected until after the third shot in their series which should be complete at 16 weeks old. 

You may also choose to give your Frenchie bordatella (protection against kennel cough) and that will likely be complete at 16 weeks as well. 

We recommend to not take your puppy anywhere you do not know the history of the dogs before they have their full series of shots. For example, keep them away from dog parks, pet stores, the floor at the veterinarians office, and puppy pee areas. You may even want to wait a couple of weeks after their final shot in the series to allow time for the immune system to develop a full immune response. 

Also, beware of other dogs if you decide to take your Frenchie to the dog park. Many owners have much larger dogs and not all dogs are well behaved or well controlled by their owners. Keep your eye out to keep your Frenchie safe. 

How often should I feed my French Bulldog puppy?

How often should I feed my French Bulldog puppy? The French Bulldog of Colorado Blog

One of the questions we get at pick up is how often should I feed my French Bulldog puppy? Your puppy has been on unlimited food all of the time. When you bring your puppy to your home you will want to place him/her on a schedule of 3-4 times per day. If on the smaller side (5lbs), we recommend four times per day. If a little bit stouter, you can start with three times a day. We recommend giving them as much as they want at each setting while they are growing babies. As they age and grow you can take it down to 1-2 times per day. Two feedings per day seems to be the amount of times most people end up feeding their Frenchies.


When you place your puppy on a feeding schedule it helps with the potty training as well. After eating, take them outside to potty. Make sure to tell your little one how good he is for doing his duty outside.

Keep in mind they are used to eating their kibble soaked as when they were with their siblings they’d spill it if left dry. If you find your Frenchie isn’t liking their food, try soaking it as that it what they are used to. Basically you just fill the water up to the level of the dogfood.  If they continue to turn their nose up at the kibble, try adding a bit of canned dogfood to the kibble. Puppies are like humans. Some overeat when stressed and some undereat. Changing to a new home is an environmental stressor even though we are sure your Frenchie is enjoying being the center of your world. 

Each Frenchie is different and each human family is different. Do your best at scheduling for you and your Frenchie to live your best lives. 

How to Keep Your French Bulldog Safe!

How to Keep Your French Bulldog Safe! The French Bulldog of Colorado Blog

A big question everyone is now asking is how to do I keep my French Bulldog safe? No one wants to have their very own Frenchie baby lost or taken from them. Here is a list of everything we recommend and use ourselves to keep your Frenchies safe and sound from escaping, theft, and other dogs.  

Have a collar with identification on your Frenchie.  

One of the easiest ways to keep your French Bulldog safe is to have identification on the collar or tag. If he escapes someone can easily call you and you’ll be reunited with your baby. You can add a dog collar tag to the collar or purchase a collar with the information engraved on the collar or buckle. The information you can include can be name, phone number(s), and address.  

Register your Frenchies microchip.  

We typically use AKC microhips and will give you the information to register the chip. If your Frenchie escapes or is stolen and someone scans your Frenchies microhip you can be reunited. The microchip is connected with your information. For this to happen it is essential that you register the microchip and keep your contact information up to date.  You can do this when registering your puppy with AKC or complete the AKC reunite form we provide you at pickup. Please do this simple step ASAP. I can’t tell you how many calls we’ve received in panic because their Frenchie escaped and they never registered the microchip number and can’t even find the information to do so.  Always remember to double check the microhcip number we provide you at the vet’s office. Human error is always a possibility.  

Keep your French Bulldog safe with a FitBark GPS system.

We love the FitBark GPS system where you will get Wifi safe zone alerts when your pup enters or leaves one of your designated safe areas. If lost, you can quickly tack your Frenchie anywhere in the U.S. with 1-minute location updates until reunited with your baby.  

Walk with a Taser and Pepper Spray 

I live out in the country walking on dirt roads where dogs are often left to roam. They come running up to my Frenchies which want to protect their momma. Of course Frenchies cannot properly defend themselves as their little snout usually can never sink their teeth in their target. Dogs are even more sensitive to pepper spray than humans. I carry a taser to protect against humans and a pepper spray to protect against other dogs. I used to just carry a taser but I was made aware that dogs are quick targets that are difficult to taser.  In case ever needed (hopefully not), I will use pepper spray to protect the little Frenchies.  

Set up a security system  

Consider setting up a security system for your backyard to warn you if someone/something comes over the fence or through a gate that’s not a dog.  

Add locks to gates 

Most of the time we hear Frenchies escaped because someone in the household didn’t secure the gate. Consider adding a lock and minimizing the amount of usage for the gate.  

Other good practices to keep your French Bulldog safe:

  • Keep tight lipped about your Frenchie and where you live.  
  • Never discuss how much you paid for your Frenchie.  
  • Reconsider that Frenchie Instagram account you were planning on creating.  
  • Do not leave your Frenchie alone outside.  
  • Do not leave your Frenchie alone in the car.  
  • Make sure your doors and windows are locked in your home.  
  • Set your alarm every time you leave.  
  • Double check your fences before placing your Frenchie can escape.
