Are Frenchies Smart?
The French Bulldog, commonly known as the Frenchie, is one of the most popular dog breeds. The AKC ranking lands them a spot only behind the Golden Retriever, German Shepherd, and Labrador Retriever. All three of these breeds are known for their intelligence and abilities to excel in obedience and training… but what about our beloved Frenchie? Are Frenchies smart?
Ranked #4 out of 195 breeds by the AKC, the French Bulldog continues to gain momentum with their unique appearance and friendly personality (Greenberg, 2017). This ranking lands them a spot only behind the Golden Retriever, German Shepherd, and Labrador Retriever. All three of these breeds are known for their intelligence and abilities to excel in obedience and training… but what about our beloved Frenchie?
It’s safe to say that the Frenchie prefers fun over performance! While they aren’t top competitors in agility, sports, or specialized training and obedience, they are front-runners for fun and games. However, that doesn’t mean that Frenchies are not smart! In fact, Frenchies are very intelligent and even a little mischievous! With a little planning and creativity, you’ll be able to observe just how intelligent your Frenchie is through training and play.
Best practices for training your Frenchie include creating a lively environment and fun methods for teaching new tricks and behaviors while rewarding success with love and treats! Instead of demanding performance through strict repetition, try turning your training session into a game for your pup! French Bulldog’s aim to please their owner all while having fun with their pack. Why not use that time to sharpen your Frenchie’s skills?
While they may not show their intelligence quite like other leading dog breeds, Frenchies definitely prove their smarts through their quirky, investigative, and fun personalities.
