Are French Bulldogs Lazy?

French Bulldogs are probably one of the highest ranked in terms of favorite dog breeds, and if you know anything about them you’ll likely agree.

Even cat lovers often can’t help but smile when watching these little guys showing off their big personalities to the world.

With that being said, you may have heard some commonly mentioned characteristics they possess and may wonder things such as:

Are French Bulldogs Lazy?

This seems to be a commonly debated topic due to the fact that frenchies have such big personalities that seem to go from one extreme to the other, with no in-between.

On the one hand they are energetic and rambunctious little creatures, but on the other they are quite content to just lay around on the couch all day.

Add to this that they are also notoriously stubborn when they want to be, and perhaps this combination is what has people wondering if they’re just lazy.

Furthermore, another reason leading people to this conclusion could be their sleeping habits.

Do French Bulldogs Sleep A Lot?

The short answer to this question is ‘yes’.

French bulldogs will generally sleep throughout the night, napping periodically for a couple of hours at a time throughout the day.

It’s essential that they do, in fact, because if your frenchie is not getting adequate amounts of sleep it could affect his/her attitude, temperament, and even their overall health!

Like people (and, well, most creatures in general) not all french bulldogs will sleep the same amount of time.

How Many Hours A Day Do French Bulldogs Sleep?

It might seem worrisome to you at first (especially if this is your first french bulldog) to notice your sweet baby sleeping for long periods of time but fear not because this is completely normal.

While all dogs (much like us humans) require different amounts of sleep, on average, most adult french bulldogs will generally sleep for about 14 to 16 hours a day.

Puppies and older dogs will need a little bit more, usually totalling about 18 to 20 hours.

Are French Bulldogs Lap Dogs?

If you’ve ever noticed that many larger-breed dogs believe themselves to be lap dogs, you’ll understand when I say that size is not the only characteristic of a good lap dog.

In fact, there are some small breeds (such as the pomeranian, for example) that don’t fit the role of lap dog.

Rest assured, however, that french bulldogs do indeed make for good lap dogs because they possess other important traits, such as being fantastic snugglers, and feeling peaceful and content when resting on your lap.

Final Thoughts

All in all, french bulldogs do need a lot of sleep, and they can be lazy, but neither of those characteristics speaks for their entire personality.

Likewise, each and every french bulldog has their own unique personality.

Spend some time with one of these little pooches and you’ll quickly realize that while they all possess these traits, by no means are they defined by them.
