Since a high percentage of our world lives in apartments many will ask, “Will a French Bulldog do well in my apartment?” Fortunately, the answer is yes. Frenchies are quite adaptable little dogs…a characteristic which I believe drives people to the breed.
Exercise is needed but not in the quantities of other breeds. A quick walk around your apartment building or playing fetch even in your living room is enough for most Frenchies. In fact, you want to be careful not to over-exert these guys. Every French Bulldog is different. One of mine can go for long walks without a blink of an eye. My Paris can barely make it around the block without huffing and puffing especially in the heat. So be careful when taking your Frenchie out when the weather warms up to prevent overheating.
Frenchies are a nice size as well to use pee pads or artificial grass which is great for apartment dwellers. We have even seen these placed these on the balcony in the past as long as there are no areas your little Frenchie can squeeze through and hurt himself. We do recommend pee pad or turf training your Frenchie until he has his full series of shots as they have not built up their complete immunity against such diseases as distemper, adenovirus, parvo, etc… These diseases can easily be picked up in the grass where other dogs have been.
