What Every French Bulldog Owner Must Know About Their Diet!


Navigating the world of canine nutrition can be as tricky as decoding a French Bulldog's various grunts and yawns. Yet, it's the cornerstone of their health and happiness. Let's peel back the layers of dog food bags and treat pouches to reveal what truly constitutes a wholesome diet for your Frenchie. Join me on this culinary quest, inspired by my own experiences with Freddie's gastronomic adventures.

Feeding Your Frenchie Right

Nutritional Needs of a French Bulldog

French Bulldogs are little bundles of energy, but they're also prone to weight gain. Balancing proteins, fats, and carbohydrates in their diet is essential. Freddie's journey to optimal health began with understanding the right mix of nutrients that keeps his tail wagging and his waistline in check.

The Great Grain Debate

Grains or no grains? 
That was a big question for us! While some Frenchies do just fine with grains, Freddie's sensitive stomach meant a shift to grain-free options. It was a game-changer for his digestion and overall vigour.

Treats and Training

The Skinny on Treats

Freddie could easily trick me into over-treating with his puppy-dog eyes, but moderation is key. We use treats strategically — as rewards for training and occasionally just because. The secret? Choose low-calorie, high-value treats.

Homemade vs. Store-Bought

In our quest for the perfect diet, Freddie and I explored both homemade meals and premium kibbles. Each has its benefits, but it's essential to consult with a vet to ensure all nutritional bases are covered.


Unravelling the mysteries of a French Bulldog's diet can be as delightful as their quirky personality. Freddie's culinary journey may have had its ups and downs, but finding the diet that keeps him thriving has been worth every chew and chomp. Remember, the best diet for your Frenchie is one that's tailored to their unique needs.
