Rare French Bulldog Colors That May Surprise You

Brindle French Bulldog

The irresistible French Bulldog has had a rich history dating back to the mid-1800s. Immortalized as an active, intelligent, muscular dog of heavy bone, smooth coat, compact build, and medium or small structure, this breed has skyrocketed to popularity. Breeding over time has resulted in a myriad of colorings, including several rare French Bulldog colors! In this post, we'll walk you through some of the most common and most rare colorings for this breed.

There's Much to Love About Frenchies!

Fawn French Bulldog

French bulldogs are well behaved, adaptable, and comfortable companions with an affectionate nature and even disposition. They are also generally alert and playful, but not unduly boisterous. These are the traits that we have all fallen in love with in this vastly amusing and companionable breed. And of course, they come in all different kinds of colors!

Some Background Info on Coloring

Before we can explore the more unique colors of this exceptional canine, we first need to understand the rules. By that we mean, the standards as it pertains to this breed's coloring.

What colors should purebred French Bulldogs really have? According to the French Bulldog Club and the American Kennel Club, the French Bulldog Breed Standard on color states, “Acceptable colors - All brindle, fawn, white, brindle and white, and any color except those which constitute disqualification. All colors are acceptable with the exception of solid black, mouse, liver, black and tan, black and white, and white with black, which are disqualifications. Black means black without a trace of brindle.”

What does this mean for you if your pup is solid black or among the other exceptions you may ask? While he or she may not qualify to participate in the sport of purebred dogs, you’ll still have the pleasure of enjoying the company of your wonderful bat eared, fun loving charmer who's guaranteed to provide laughter, fun, joy and adventure for many years to come.

Simply put, we have Frenchies with colors that are within the standard and those that fall outside the standard. Those outside the standard are often called fad colors and may be referred to as rare French Bulldog colors. Let’s explore the many colors of our Frenchie companion!  One thing for sure as it relates to the French Bulldog is that we love all the uniqueness and wonder they present in whatever shade of color we are fortunate to know or have them.

Now is the time to transform boring into beautiful and create a space your pooch will absolutely love. A great crate cover set makes all the difference, and while your pet will love this re-energized hidden oasis that is now his crate, you will love the new life a little touch of color brings to your homes decor. So, what other pet projects have you been held back from competing lately?

8. Treat yourself and your pet: Have a surprise shipped to you or make it a shopping date

Who doesn't love a surprise? Open a package this St Patrick's Day and unwrap not one, but two fabulous surprises for you and your pooch. The possibilities are endless, but why not relax and let Chic Sassy Pets make this dream a reality with a luxury pet product delivered to your door.

The Importance Of Play For Both Pet and Parent

“I’m up,” the alarm goes off, you squeeze gently into those yoga pants and off you go. What do I know about being a cyclist? You get to your spin class and immediately go to town on the latest peloton bike, not literally but figuratively. Forty-five minutes later you're home tired, refreshed and ready to take on the world, but why?

"I'm up," the alarm goes off, you hastily put on those gym pants and off you go. What do I know about being a bodybuilder? You get to your gym and of course, you ideally choose the biggest dumbbell you can find because heavy is better.  You survive your forty-five minutes of sometimes irrational thinking and return home gassed, refreshed and ready to move a mountain, but why?

"I'm up," it only takes a glimmer of daylight for you to jump excitedly on the bed ready to go.  So what if the entire household is still asleep, you're up and that's all that matters. You're ready to sink those paws into the ground and roll in the misty dew.  Twenty minutes later you return pooped, refreshed and ready to do it again, but why?

Whether it’s a spinning class, a gym workout or a romp in the yard, exercise or play is vital to both pet and parent. “What all play has in common is that it offers a sense of engagement and pleasure, takes the player out of a sense of time and place, and the experience of doing it is more important than the outcome.” says psychiatrist Stuart Brown, founder of the National Institute for Play in Carmel Valley, Calif.

Played Much Lately?

When's the last time you did something that was so engaging, so much fun, you lost track of time?

Play is not just essential for kids, we’ll leave this as an old wives’ tail; it can be an important source of relaxation and stimulation for adults as well. Playing with your romantic partner, yes woof, friends, co-workers, pets, and children is a sure (and fun) way to fuel your imagination, creativity, problem-solving abilities, and emotional well-being. So as it stands, while we can’t rosé all day as we should, or play all day as we must, a healthy dose of play goes a long way.

How About Your Pet?

Now let’s think about our baby, our furry family member, yes, whether it’s chasing a ball in the yard or using the canine treadmills, exercise or play is vital in helping dogs expend pent-up energy, much more so for some more than others. Without that outlet, they may show behavioral problems that can range from destructive tendencies to attention-seeking antics. Just as surely as a couch potato would benefit from a trot around the block, a dog prone to chewing the couch or digging up a garden will find a much-needed release valve in play and exercise.

plush dog toys, plush dog toys made in usa, plush dog toys with squeakers, plush dog toys without squeakers, indestructible plush dog toys, stuffed dog toys for aggressive chewers

Often, such physical activities form an important part of resolving behavioral issues. So let’s ask it, How Often Do You Play With Your Dog? Hey, we get it, today’s pet parents are busier than ever and life happens. So while you work on your schedule, select great designer dog toys and your furry baby will thank you. But with most things take all the caveats seriously, there are myriads of toys to choose from, and simply put just make sure it’s the appropriate everything for your baby.

While we all prefer bonding, and having fun with our pets, they can also enjoy endless fun bundled in a well-chosen favorite toy or toys. So just remember, play isn’t just reserved for your canine companion, you need play as well. Have fun play my fabulous pet parents.

A Clean Dog Is A Happy Dog

What do I mean by "A Clean Dog Is A Happy Dog" and who the heck is that for. A well pampered pooch that's the envy of its peers and the subject of all the chatter not only looks and feels good, but smells great too. But let's be real, if a trip to the doggie spa is out of the picture, why not bring the spa to you. Today's fashionista pet parents are pulling out all the stops when it comes to their furry family members and why shouldn't you.

With a few simple rules of the road, your pampered pooch will be living in a lap of luxury and enjoying the royal treatment they deserve. As with most things moderation is the key. On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the least favorite, most of us may agree that our little bundle of joy would readily check the number 10 box when it comes to taking a bath. Yes, it's that look when your pet is saying; "not sure why this is happening, don't I already do this myself!!"

So what's the deal with bathing anyway?

  1. We all love our pets and spending this quality time in the process is a great way to strengthen that bond you share with them. 
  2. Of course nothing beats a great smelling pooch when dirt and odors are removed from their coat and skin. 
  3. And something you may not think about, but bathing is a great way to protect yourself and the rest of your family members, just keeping it healthy. 

Dog Spa Supplies

How Often Should I Bathe?

How often do I bathe you may ask?  Note this is not intended for you, but I would say at least twice per day or as needed. While this may work for us humans, no robots here, keep in mind that bathing your pet too often can be detrimental to them as well. It can irritate the skin, damage hair follicles, and increase the risk of bacterial or fungal infections. So how often you may ask? The best bath frequency depends on the reason behind the bath. Keep a few simple factors in mind, including health, breed, coat, and activity level, as well as where these activities are taking place.

No mystery here, dogs who spend the day outside rolling around in things they shouldn’t really are going to need a bath far more often than ones who spend most of their time on the couch, and of course sometimes it's a simple nose test; if your dog comes into a room and you can smell him, more likely than not a bath is needed.

What bathing products do I use? 

First, think skin pH, arguably the most important when it comes to picking out the right bathing product. Our babies have sensitive skin so our choice here may or may not have a skin reaction visible by red, itchy skin and hives. Furthermore, ingestion of pet shampoo can cause symptoms like vomiting, drooling and decreased appetite. Are you worried yet? Let's face it, with so many great veterinarians available, if you’re unsure of which type of shampoo to buy, simply talk to your veterinarian, who knows your pets and their medical history and is in the best position to provide individualized recommendations.

Where do I find the right products? 

For today's pampered pets, designer dog spa products are available now more than ever. From deluxe dog shampoos, conditioners and refreshing spays to fabulous dog colognes, the world is your oyster as you can have your pet looking and smelling as great as you do. Our Chic Sassy Pets luxury dog products and accessories boutique has all your pet spa products and dog spa supplies. Visit us online, you'll be happy you did. Shop today! Choose wisely my fabulous pet parents.
