The breed is somewhat hardheaded and is harder to train than your typical dog, but they are known to be very affectionate to their owners. A bulldog loves to cuddle and is sure to give you that doggy love you’ve been searching for. Bulldogs love children and try to get the most attention from them that they can. This makes them a great dog for those who have children and want a dog to protect them, as bulldogs can be very protective of their owners, while never thinking of harming them.
Bulldogs are somewhat known for their destructive behavior, however, this is just an attention seeking act. If they are not getting the attention they are looking for, they will cause mischief as a way to receive that attention. Because of this factor, it is important that you only choose one of these dogs if you have a lot of time to spend with them. They are also great watch dogs because they do not like strangers much and tend to bark loudly if they approach. Next to a lab, I think a bulldog is the best choice for a large family who is looking for some good company.
