Our commitment to successful insemination means that we only guarantee it if the dam has undergone up to two cesarean sections in her lifetime, as any more could pose a risk to both the mother and puppies. Additionally, we recommend that dams are not inseminated before the age of 18 months to ensure successful insemination. If your female has had progesterone testing confirmed by a veterinary document, but does not conceive on her most fertile days, we offer a free re-breed at her next season.
Please note that if shipping of semen is required, the Buyer is responsible for shipping costs. We cannot guarantee the litter without progesterone testing, and the stud fee along with any shipping fees are non-refundable. A litter is considered to be 2 healthy puppies, and in the event of less than 2 healthy puppies, a free repeat breeding will be given, with the Buyer only paying shipping costs.
Basics of Breeding
Breeding French Bulldogs is a challenging endeavor that requires a significant investment of time, energy, and money, as well as specialized knowledge and techniques from breeders. To start, the female Frenchie needs to be artificially inseminated with the semen of a healthy and robust stud. Due to the narrow hips of the Frenchie mom and the large size of the pups' heads, a C-section is required for delivery. Typically, the puppies are born between 58-63 days after insemination, requiring constant monitoring of the mom from the 58th day onwards. As the exact delivery time is hard to predict, a dependable and readily available veterinarian is essential!
Before delivery, the breeder must prepare a special whelping box for the puppies with a heat lamp overhead, as well as a separate, lockable cage or room for the mother. After surgery, the female Frenchie requires time to heal, so the breeder must care for the pups in their first few weeks, feeding them every three hours and constantly supervising them. They must also ensure that the puppies are not left alone with their mom, as she might unintentionally roll over and harm them. It is crucial to encourage the mother to eat even if she does not feel hungry to ensure that she produces enough milk. As the puppies grow bigger and stronger, regular vet check-ups are necessary to monitor their development, administer necessary vaccinations and health screenings.
How to Choose a Stud
Finding the perfect French Bulldog stud is an important step in breeding these lovable canines. To start, you must be familiar with the traits of a perfect male Frenchie, which includes a short, stocky body, short legs, large head, short nose, small ears, and short tail. Next, it's essential to take into account any flaws that your female Frenchie may have to balance them out with the stud's characteristics to achieve the desired French Bulldog look. For instance, if your female Frenchie is larger in size, you should consider selecting an extra small male, and vice versa. Similarly, if your female Frenchie has a long nose, you should choose a male with an extra short nose, and if she has long legs, you should select a male with extra short legs.
Additionally, producing a desired color or pattern in the offspring requires careful DNA research. Even if two Frenchies of the same color are bred, there is no guarantee that their puppies will inherit that color. Breeding French Bulldogs also comes with some vital rules that breeders must follow. For example, merle French Bulldogs should only be bred to a dog with a solid coat color to prevent double merle puppies who often suffer from sight and hearing impairments.
