Breeding difficulties of French Bulldog

In the past two hundred years, the French Bulldog has been hybridized with several breeds many times, so it is definitely not the dog that nature wants to exist. In fact, if human beings and our scientific knowledge were not as advanced as they are now, then this species might not exist at all. In most cases (about 80%), French Bulldogs cannot breed naturally. Because of the size of their hips, men cannot install women. Therefore, the French Bulldog needs artificial insemination. Because the French Bulldog birth canal is very small, and the French Bulldog’s head is also large, so there will be obvious complications in the process of delivery.
Therefore, cesarean section is needed to deliver. Let’s look at these two main issues.

French Bulldog needs artificial insemination

Usually, breeders find stallions that supply sperm. They don’t usually keep a stallion on site, but “rent” them. Finding the right stallion is a key part of the process, because breeders need to have confidence not only in the health of the stallion, but also in its parents and history. If you want quality, the cost of stallions is very expensive. It’s common for stallions to cost between $500 and $2000. Overnight delivery can easily add another $200. For breeders, however, costs (and potential risks) are just beginning. First, they won’t do it themselves unless they are properly trained in artificial insemination. They need to have their sperm checked by a veterinarian and have them inseminated. It may cost about $100, but it seems to make a big difference.
