Many dog aficionados lovingly call French Bulldogs ‘Frenchies’ they are also unflatteringly referred to as ‘frog dogs’ or ‘clowns’. These names, although sounding harsh, are quite apt considering the looks and the playful manner of a French bulldog.
The breed name is quite misleading for this small companion dog as it would lead one to believe that the French have played a major role in its development, however many experts agree that American and British breeders are responsible for and have had a huge hand in the development of the French bulldog.
As a potential online buyer, you have to know that there are many differences between American Bulldogs and French Bulldogs. The purchase price for a pure breed alone can vary greatly. French Bulldogs are generally much more expensive and puppies can fetch anywhere from $1,500 to $2,000.
Be very wary though, the internet has become a bastion for the breeding of spurious websites. So it’s highly probable that there are numerous websites that are posing as legitimate dog sellers but are in fact far from it.
One way to determine if a seller’s reputation is dubious is by looking at their prices. If puppies can be purchased too cheaply then the offer is all too often too good to be true, it probably isn’t worth your time pursuing a purchase.
Many websites find that slashing down prices would indeed attract more customers, but if those prices are unbelievably low, then it’s a high probability that they are not selling purebreds.
It is of utmost importance that you don’t get lured by these low prices and end up committing yourself to purchasing an animal you don’t really want.
The next thing that you should consider is that the price tag should fall as the dog ages, so if the price does indeed seem incredibly low, maybe it’s because it’s a year old French Bulldog. Try to compare the prices of different websites. Many genuine websites today have developed a system to ensure that they have a reliable user base. This usually means verifying their customer’s identity and asking them to register to their website. The registration is normally free. Choose websites like these for your comparison.
Choosing which website to purchase from doesn’t just mean the one with the lowest price. After carefully considering if the website is genuinely reputable, then most would choose where they can get the best deal. The best deal doesn’t just mean getting the lowest asking price for French Bulldogs. You should also see if the dog is already registered and if they would provide a certification in writing.
Plus, they should also provide ample and comfortable transportation means for your dog when it is delivered to your home. This usually means that the transportation environment is air-conditioned.
Collecting this information and listing down the pros and cons of each website will help you determine where you will be able to get a good deal.
French Bulldogs are very active companions and can be a great friend. They are very playful especially if you get the purebred. So take the time to choose the right website to buy your French Bulldog this is an investment where both the owner and the pet wins all the time.
Once you have bought your French Bulldog I’m sure you’ll probably spoil it rotten! However, you can make life much easier for yourself and your new Frenchie, if you start obedience training at the earliest possible juncture.
With that being the case I can’t encourage you enough to check out this Training Program which I believe is ideal for owners of Frenchies and Frenchies themselves.
