Popularity: Extremely popular;

Trainability: English Bulldogs are highly trainable and are actually quite sensitive to their owner's voice. They're such good dogs at being trained, as a matter of fact, that they actually assist trainers when they're training other breeds. When attempting to train a Bulldog, it's important to be consistent and fair. This is a curious and intelligent dog that will learn extremely quickly. There's no need for harsh methods with this breed, yet at times, it can be unpredictable or stubborn;

Size/Weight: Medium sized dogs, weighing in at an average of 45-55 pounds;

Origin Location/Date: English Bulldogs were first bred in England during the 1500s and were used for bull baiting as well as fighting. They became quite popular and were imported to the United States shortly thereafter. In 1886, the American Kennel Club recognized them as a breed and the Bulldog Club of American was formed shortly after in 1890;

Energy Level: English Bulldogs are of a moderate to low energy level. They're not well suited to going for long walks or runs and really are better at resting and being around family. This isn't to say that they don't like going for walks, trots or playing for a while in the back yard, it's just that this breed isn't as active as many others are. It's also important to note that the Bulldog doesn't handle heat well and should be kept inside on hot days. It also isn't a swimmer, so it should be kept away from water that's more than a few inches deep;

Temperament: The English Bulldog is a sweet and companionable member of the family. This breed is great with kids and adults of all ages, even the elderly. This isn't a jumpy dog that requires a lot of exercise, so lying at grandma's or grandpa's feet is just fine with him. This breed gets along well with other household pets, such as cats and other dogs and is simply a relaxed friend to have around the house;

Necessary Space: Since the English Bulldog is such a low energy breed and since it's so compact, this is a great dog for apartment living. The best part is that you won't need to walk him for hours on end daily. Going outside to do his business and then walking up and down the road is just fine. Of course, it's always nice to play at the park for a little while too because you'll want to keep this dog in shape and healthy;

Talents: The primary talent of this dog breed today is that they are loyal family members that are a pleasure to have around. Just follow the rules set out above and you should be a fine owner;

Life Expectancy: 8-10 years;

Group: Non-Sporting Group;
