Health issues

One of the biggest red flags when buying a French bulldog is health issues. French bulldogs are prone to certain health conditions, such as hip dysplasia, skin allergies, and respiratory problems. Make sure you ask the breeder about the health history of the dog and the parents. A reputable breeder should be able to provide you with health records and genetic testing results. At Royal Empire French Bulldogs, we are committed to providing transparent services so that our clients are informed throughout the breeding process.

Breeder reputation

It's important to do your research when it comes to finding a reputable breeder. Breeders who sell puppies through pet stores or online ads are often illegitimate, and may not provide the level of care that these dogs need. Reputable breeders will usually have a waiting list and won't have puppies available year-round. Our team provides anticipated litter dates for all of our dogs to ensure our clients know what timeline they should expect.
