Supplies to Buy Before Your New French Bulldog Arrives

Lola, a female French Bulldog

There’s nothing quite like the anticipation of bringing home a French Bulldog puppy. These delightful little companions, known for their distinctive bat ears and affectionate nature, are a wonderful addition to any family. You’ll want their first day in a new home to be special, so you have to be prepared. Here’s what to buy before the arrival of your French Bulldog.

Comfortable Bedding

First and foremost, your French Bulldog will need a comfortable place to rest. Look for a bed that’s soft yet supportive, as they love to lounge and nap in cozy spots. Make sure it’s appropriately sized so they can stretch out or curl up snugly. A bed with a washable cover is a plus, as it will help you keep their sleeping area clean and odor-free.

Food and Water Bowls

Invest in a good pair of food and water bowls. French Bulldogs are brachycephalic (short-headed), so bowls that are slightly elevated can make eating and drinking more comfortable for them. Stainless steel or ceramic bowls are durable and easy to clean, making them a great choice for keeping your Frenchie’s feeding area hygienic.

Quality Dog Food

French Bulldogs can have sensitive stomachs, so it’s important to choose a high-quality dog food that’s appropriate for their age, size, and any specific health needs. Consult with your vet to find the best option. Also, consider picking up some healthy treats for training and bonding.

Grooming Supplies

A soft bristle brush is good for their short coat, nail clippers for regular paw care, and toothbrush and toothpaste for dental health. Don’t forget flea and tick prevention, as recommended by your vet.

Toys and Entertainment

French Bulldogs aren’t the most active breed, but they do enjoy playtime and mental stimulation. A selection of toys, including chew toys, interactive puzzles, and soft plushies, can keep them entertained and help prevent boredom.

Safety Gear

A well-fitting harness and leash are essential for safe walks. French Bulldogs have delicate necks, so a harness is preferable to a collar. Also, consider an ID tag with your contact information and a comfortable crate if you plan to crate train.
