    Upper Respiratory Infection

    28 Mar 2020 in Uncategorized

    Upper respiratory infections     Is there anything better than sweet bulldog puppy kisses?  How many pleasures top snuggling with a 10 week old bulldog on a sleepy Sunday afternoon?  In the world of Bruiser Bulldogs, there is nothing better!  Many a bulldog pup has pitter pattered its tiny feet across our hardwood kitchen floor and yet the sound never tires; it’s always new, always welcomed.  The kisses, the snuggles; they are always precious, never a drop of monotony.                ...

    Why The AKC Must Change to Save the Bulldog Breed Ever feel like the rules are stacked against you?  Like you literally cannot win no matter how hard you try?  Recently, I took a trip to beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada – the land of fun and fantasy.  The buildings, food and even the shows are dripping of luxurious entertainment.  It’s easy to forget that Las Vegas, from the Bellagio to Circus Circus is simply a business model with rules designed...

    Bruiser Bulldog Health and What That Means For You There is nothing like tooting your own horn right?  Some days it seems like our health “message” feels exactly like that; self-complimentary and aggressive.  We repost testimonials that tout the extraordinary health and experiences past adopters have had.  Most of the content on our YouTube, Instagram and Facebook is never too many steps away from a nice reminder that we are different in our approach to breeding.     Part of...

    Working towards creating a bloodline that excels in health

    11 Jul 2016 in Uncategorized

    Recently we agreed to partner with a trusted breeder within our network to use their stud, Hollywood (pictured below) in a series of 4 breedings. Hollywood is everything that I believe in and want in our bloodlines. From a phenotype standpoint, he breathes better than any bulldog I have been around which means he has a huge trach and no palate issues. His snout is extended slightly by about 1/2 inch which gives more room for his palate and reduces...

    A Healthy Show Dog

    11 Jul 2016 in Uncategorized

    This photo has been on my mind the last couple days. It’s a photo of one our offspring cleaning house at a ABKC (american bully kennel club) bulldog show. She took on 150 English bulldogs in the ring and won best of breed. What you all need to know is that this would have never happened in an AKC show ring. The ABKC has intentionally developed a bulldog breed standard that requires the dogs to have athletic and healthy features....

    09 Jul 2014 in Uncategorized

    What is the most important ingredient for successful bulldog breeding? Occasionally I am asked what the single most important factor in producing healthy, English Bulldog puppies is.

Obviously, the ideal bulldog is very important to us. It is however becoming increasingly more obvious to me that we need to explain how we go about reaching these ideals as...

    Why The Overdone, Heavy Wrinkled Bulldog Is Killing The Breed.

    28 Feb 2014 in Bulldog Care & Health

    The foundation that drives our breeding program is health. If you have spent any time at all researching the bulldog breed, it is certain you have come across the statement that the bulldog has many “health issues” and is a complex dog to care for; “but what are these health issues?”. Our first step in creating a healthy bulldog is to actually define and address the major “health issues” the bulldog suffers from. One of the most glaring issues that...
