CKC Bulldog Standards
Vidic’s Bullies is dedicated to breeding top quality English Bulldogs. To ensure top quality pets for their new owners, we breed according to the English Bulldog standards put out by the Canadian Kennel Club. Also to protect the well-being of our dogs, the breed, and the future of the breed, we are proud to follow the Code of Practice for CKC Member Breeders, that you can find on the CKC website
Please BE AWARE of what it means to be a Bulldog owner. Once you own an English Bulldog, you’ll never want another breed, that is something that all owners and breeders can agree on. Though they are a dog with a personality of their own, a true best friend and a real joyful addition to the family, they are NOT your average dog. A bulldog is an indoor dog, not an outside crate guard dog that some movies will imply. Due to their facial structure, the Bulldog is very intolerant to the heat and prone to heat stroke when temperatures rise and they are not being monitored. Needless to say, if you are looking for the active dog who likes long walks and jogging in the park, the precious Bullie is not for you. On the other hand, regular short periods of excersise is needed to ensure the overall health of your dog.
Though the Bulldog is likely to roll around in the grass, mud and all the other places you prefer he didn’t, he still needs to be kept clean. Infections in the wrinkles and on the skin will be accompanied with sour smells and expensive vet bills if not properly cared for (cleaning tips and recipies are included in your Vidic’s Bullies puppy pack). Eyes and wrinkles should be cleaned daily or every 2 days. If owners stay on top of this, expensive and painful problems can be avoided.
The overall health of the Bulldog is the responsibility of both the breeder and the new owners. As the breeders we breed only healthy females to healthy males and keep our dogs on quality food, keep them up to date on all vaccinations then continue this standard with new pups when they arrive. Also we advise everyone interested in the breed and looking to purchase an English Bulldog, to do your research or contact us with any questions or concerns you may have first.
At Vidic’s Bullies we take preventitive maintanance very serious. A good diet, regular short excersise and proper grooming will benefit both your new family addition and you, the proud new parents of a Vidic Bullie.
