One of the first questions everyone asks is, “At what age can we bring our French Bulldog puppy home? This is a great question so you can properly prepare for you little bundle of joy. With our sister company, The French Bulldog of Colorado, we place our puppies in their homes at 10-12 weeks old due to the fact that we find Frenchies need a couple of extra weeks to mature and fully thrive in your home. By 8 weeks old most of the babies are eating well but sometimes we have picky eaters that need a little extra time to gain weight and be ready to join you. Frenchies grow at different rates just like human babies do. Usually by 10 weeks our puppies are ready to go but please be understanding if we decide to keep your little one a little longer. We are doing it out of the best interest of your Frenchie. If you are working with another breeder, you will need to confirm with them and be flexible as puppies are biological systems. Good breeders know when a pup isn’t quite ready to join their new home.

What to do before you bring your French Bulldog home?
There’s lots to do while you wait for your Frenchie to be 10 weeks old. All of the todo items are in The Prep for Your French Bulldog Course we give you access to after you pick your baby at 3 weeks old which is included with your pup. Getting a pup from another breeder? No problem. You can access the course here.
When you receive your Frenchie at 10 weeks old they will have their first DA2PP shot at 8 weeks old and been dewormed twice. We do preventative treatment for giardia and coccidia. All dogs carry coccidia and giardia is everywhere. When under stressful conditions both of these can flare up. Stressful situations may include joining a new home, changing diet, etc… You will be required to finish the final shots according to your vets recommendations. We also recommend you take a stool sample and if needed give the puppy the recommended regimen. Again, if you are working with another breeder, they will give you your pups short record.
We will make arrangements with you to pickup your French Bulldog puppy in Colorado Springs. For our Colorado Springs location, we have two AirBNB’s in our walkout basement. You are welcome to stay. Here’s the link to book. If you are planning on using our flight nanny ($600-1000), please let us know at least two weeks in advance as we need to make arrangements for you.
