STANDARD CONFORMATION BY: BlueCoat
The advice, tips, and information on French Bulldog standard conformation, involve my experience with building lean structure on French Bulldogs. The questions below are real common questions ask by clients regarding French Bulldogs and on maintaining healthy weight gain.
I just bought a French Bulldog puppy and I want to know how to keep his conformation solid, like your male Stud. What is the best supplements I can use?
THE RIGHT SUPPLEMENT AND EXERCISE
A little play time everyday, which may include, ball fetching, free play and the occasional walk, is suitable. Additionally, I feed my French Bulldogs a balanced quality dog food, and I add a DAILY HEALTHY SUPPLEMENT, that is the extent of my French Bulldogs solid conformation and weight gain results. The wide shoulders, the deep chests, the muscular frames and big heads you find common with BlueCoat brand French Bulldogs are due to Genetics, good diet and modest exercise.
What should I give my French Bulldogs to build a well-tone conformation and good show dog standard?
MY FAVORITE TRICK FOR WELL-TONE CONFORMATION
If you take a look at photos of some of the French Bulldogs that were top AKC champions, they would look like the Frenchies we are breeding. Although those French Bulldogs were trained for hours everyday to prepare, they did not stay thin and toned, with well defined-muscle without a good-balanced diet and exercise. Now if you simply want to add structure or balance weight to your Frenchie; so he will look his best, do this: develop a good exercise routine based on what your French Bulldog enjoys.
START YOUR FRENCH BULLDOG ON AN EXERCISE ROUTINE HE ENJOYS
Every dog is different. Find a well-healthy exercise your Frenchie enjoys and then work that into your dog's conformation routine. Someone told me that their dog loves to run on a treadmill. The dog goes and stands on it, barking until it gets turned on. My dogs have never shown such interest. But most of my Frenchies love running high speed around the yard! I would first start with a short sprinting and go from there to build tone. Point is; make sure it is something both of you enjoy. If you can have fun doing the well-toned exercises and enjoy your time together, you will see good progress and enjoy conformation building and definition on your French Bulldog.
NATURAL CONFORMATION WITH A BALANCED DIET
Conformation building prior to 18 months of age can result in extensive damage to skeletal and muscle tissue on a dog, in particular, dog joints are very susceptible to stress. Therefore, exercise with a little patience while allowing your French Bulldog to properly mature and build his natural fame with a well balance diet and "puppy play" exercises before introducing them to extra activities.
NUVET ARE MY TOP FRENCH BULLDOG SUPPLEMENT FOR TONING AND LEAN CONFORMATION
As far as supplements for toning and lean conformation on a Frenchie; I have experimented with a few variety of different French Bulldog supplements. If you want to tone your Frenchie, here are the all-natural healthy supplement for French Bulldogs that I would start with. There are a number of good supplements for dogs that many are having success with. I can't list them all, but I have found what work exceptionally well for my Frenchies. My top choice is NuVet Canine Supplement. This vitamin is all-natural and formulated for their immune system, coat and skin. Every French Bulldog Breeder I know who uses NuVet agrees that with it, you note a marked improvement in the dogs coat. This is a sign of good health. If your dogs coat is thin, dull and sheds excessively, it is often an indication of poor health or a poor diet and therefore you will have a hard time building tone solid conformation on a French Bulldog.
START YOUR PUPPY OFF RIGHT WITH FROMM PUPPY GOLD OR TASTE OF THE WILD!
A critical time in a dog's life is when they are growing. The right supplements can make all the difference in the world in helping your French Bulldog to become a champion caliber dog with good conformation. Everyone knows that French Bulldog puppies require quality nutrients while growing. Sadly most commercial dog foods lack many of the important ingredients that a growing dog needs. Fromm Puppy Gold or Taste Of The Wild starts your dog out with the best nutrients so that when it is time to build conformation, your French Bulldog is ready. If proper nutrition was lacking while growing, a dog will never reach his full potential. You only get one shot at it. You cannot turn back the clock and start over.
