Tom Kings Puppies FAQ 3

Questions and answers after arrival

TRAIN YOUR PUPPY

French bulldogs are very popular because it is a very flexible breed.
They are fine with sleeping all day if you have to work at your workplace, and at the end of the day they are very happy when you get home. They are ready to walk anytime or hike with you all day, if you do a lot of outdoor programs.
Couple of our buyers take their puppies with them to work too.
Some of the adopters crate train them and keep them on a safe place until they are not at home. Others hire a dog walker on very busy days.

Many of our adopters bring their Frenchies in a pet hotel when they are on holiday.
The most important thing is that Frenchies can get used to anything and be happy with it.

The chip can be found in the left shoulder of your angel. Your puppies microchip number is written in the passport on the 3rd page.

You can register your puppy’s microchip in the US on this link:

All of the Frenchies’ ears are flopping when they are babies and they stand up gradually as they get stronger! There are puppies whose ears are weaker, their ears straighten a little later. By the age of 4 months old, all of the puppies ears are standing!

You can also help them stand up by taping:

1 day taped 1 day rest and his ears will stand up soon:)

(Please, give your Frenchie some calcium too, you can find that in any pet store!)

You need to start off with a healthy, low calorie treat that your Frenchie loves.
Every dog is different and it might take a little bit of trial and error. If you don’t know your Frenchie’s favorite flavor, you’ll want to start sampling different flavors. Once you figure out what really gets your Frenchie going, buying in bulk will surely save you lots of cash in the long run. 
Just like we wouldn’t put anything harmful into our bodies, the same goes for our Frenchies! I stick to all-natural treats made with the best ingredients. Stay far away from those made with artificial preservatives, artificial coloring, and chemical humectants.
Here are couple good ones: 
Baby Carrot
Celery
Carrots
Apples
Lamb lungs
Antlers
Charlee bears
Rawboost mixer
Greenies
Zukes

Any French Bulldog can get warts, but they are more common in young Frenchies, who spend a lot of time around other dogs. Warts on dogs are described as looking like a small head of cauliflower, but other, rarer types do exist, including an inverted papilloma  (usually a firm lump with a dot in the middle) and dark, scaly plaques of skin that have an irregular surface. Warts can develop in and around a dog’s mouth, around the eyes, between the toes, and almost anywhere on the skin. 
Warts generally disappear on their own within a few months . However, there are times when veterinary treatment is necessary.
If just a single or small number of warts is of concern, surgical removal is the treatment of choice. This can be done with a scalpel, laser or through cryosurgery (using intense cold to destroy the wart). 
It is great that you asked us, about your concern regarding the bald spot behind the Frenchie's ear. I want to reassure you that it isn't a health issue, in case it's fairly frequent with Frenchies (even more, that is frequent with other breeds as well). If there isn't any symptom, or sign, like scratching the ears, please don't worry, your Angel is totally fine. If you notice any other sign, please feel free to ask us, like we always say, there isn't a wrong question!
Sadly Giardia infection is a common problem. Most Frenchie puppies and other dog breeds become infected when they swallow Giardia cysts that have been passed in the feces of infected animals; this route of infection is called fecal-oral. Typically, for or a very long time veterinarians have been treating this infection with an ANTIBIOTIC in combination with a DeWORMER. The antibiotic used is “metronidazole” and the dewormer is called “Panacur“.

Many Frenchies  are used to wearing clothing, due to short fur and a habit of their humans to walk outdoors in all weather conditions, even snow or heavy rain. A coat, sweater or costume shouldn't interfere with the movement of your Frenchie's vision, hearing or when doing his/her business. Some frenchies really enjoy wearing clothing, but not all do. It's important to be respectful and considerate of your angel's desire to wear clothes– or not.

Luckily Frenchies have short hair and short tail, despite of that we recommend wiping them after they are done, because that way they are surely clean 🙂
