”Remarkable book, very informative and comprehensive. Even seasoned bulldoggers could stand to learn a few things from this book,” W.J. SHOPLAND, EXTREMEBULLS, MIDDLESEX, UK

Start off on the right foot with the 236-page Bulldog Handbook, the only reference book you’ll ever need & essential reading for anyone getting a puppy, adult or rescue Bulldog.

Canine author Linda Whitwam has teamed up with breeders, owners & professionals to produce the 'Bulldog Bible,' packed full of colour photos, info & insider tips. It answers the dozens of questions new & prospective owners have, providing a blueprint for a successful lifelong partnership between you & your Bulldog.

Learn about the typical traits and habits of this stunning dog with the big heart; what Bulldogs love & hate, exercise - how much and how often, grooming, dealing with puppy biting & caring for an ageing Bully.

If you haven’t got your puppy yet, save money & potential heartache by following our guidelines & steering clear of unhealthy pups. Learn:

  • Where NOT to Buy a Bulldog From
  • How to Spot a Poorly-Bred Bulldog Pup
  • How to Find a Good Breeder & The Questions to Ask
  • How to Pick a Healthy Puppy or Adult Dog
  • How to Pick a Puppy With the Right Temperament For You
  •  Male or Female?
  • Bully-Proofing Your Home
  • Finding & Caring for Rescue Bulldogs


Once home, the book guides you through the first days, weeks & months, incl:

  • Where Puppy Should Sleep 
  • Getting Your Bulldog Used to You & Your Home
  • Understanding & Bonding with Your New Arrival
  • Housetraining & Crate Training
  • Obedience Training incl. Sit, Stay, Down, Recall, Walking on Lead & Clicker Training
  • Socialisation

There’s over 20 pages on Feeding, incl Feeding Puppies, Feeding Charts, Calorie Counters, Raw Diet, Feeding Senior Dogs & Maintaining a Healthy Weight, which can sometimes be a challenge with Bullies!

Bulldog Health is covered at length with proven medical & holistic treatments. There are tips on Keeping Your Bulldog Healthy, Preventing Overheating, Protecting Eyes, Wrinkle Cleaning, Spaying, Neutering, Vaccinations, Worming, De-Fleaing & the Bulldog Facts of Life.

There really is no other breed like the Bulldog. Bullies make superb pets with the right owners, but like all brachycephalic (flat-faced) dogs, they require a little extra care from their humans. This book arms you with all the specialist knowledge you’ll ever need for the challenge & rewards of owning one of these unique & very loving dogs.
