Health testing is very valuable to us. Every dog that we intend to breed will undergo these health tests.
We think it is important to get a lot more transparency about the outcomes of these examinations. This is why the results of our dogs are published on our website. You can find them on the page of the dog itself.
During the sharing of this information we noticed that a lot of people have trouble interpreting the results. Maybe they don’t understand why that particular disease is tested for, of they do not understand the outcoming. On this page we try to explain why we conduct the tests we do, and how to interpret the results.
When you are on the lookout for a French Bulldog puppy, it is important that you have a bit of knowledge about the outcome of the health tests. It is also important that you know the common diseases that can occur in French Bulldogs. On the Health page you can find a lot of informaton!
Unfortunately, Raad van Beheer (our kennel club) does not require any health testing for French Bulldogs. 2 dogs can be bred without a single test and you will get an FCI pedigree for the puppies.
Breed clubs do require someting, but it is not much. The testing consists of a patellar luxation exam, listening to the heart and the dog must walk 500 meters in 5 minutes.
We think this is nowhere near enough! That is why we made our own protocol and do our own health tests. All the testing we do is voluntarily, unfortunately none of these is mandatory. On the tabs below you can look into every test we conduct and you can read why we chose to perform this test.
