What's Going On at Entourage Bulldogs?

For one, we are expecting a new litter in a few weeks between our Ace x Thelma. Can we say “take-out” for Thanksgiving? This is a new breeding between the pair so we are looking forward to seeing the results. The puppies will be ready for their new families after the new year and the holiday festivities have calmed down which I’m sure we all could agree is a plus for everyone especially if your home is like ours with family and friends coming and going during the holidays. Chaos! Our pricing and shipping details for these little munchkins can be viewed on our website at https://www.entouragebulldogs.com/policies/. We will start accepting deposits on this litter beginning November 30, 2018.

We also have a few older puppies available from our summer litter. So if you are looking for a well-socialized, gently-used, slightly older puppy who is ready to go to his (or her) new home, please visit our website at https://www.entouragebulldogs.com/available-bulldogs/ for more information.

For now, I bid you adieu.

Bulldogs vs. the Tenacious Mosquito

As the weather starts to change, we start preparing our homes, cars, and bulldogs for the winter. In Texas, however, our winterizing seems to be evolving more around battling pests. The cooler weather, especially in the mornings and evenings, is such a welcoming change but the humidity has been exceptionally high and what should be an enjoyable time of the year is ruined by the insurmountable problem of mosquitoes and biting flies that come with - what we Texans consider to be FINALLY - nice weather. This week the mosquitoes and biting flies got so bad we decided to rid our yard of anything we thought encouraged pests to call our yard home. (This included emptying our bird bath.) Other radical options we considered included hiring one of those expensive pest control companies to spray for mosquitoes, backhoe our swimming pool, or put a torch to our landscape. (I’m joking! We would never hire a pest control company.) Although bats occasionally visit our yard, and we are okay with them visiting, we don’t want to encourage them to stay for obvious reasons. Buying bug foggers and lawn sprays, lighting tiki torches and citronella candles have worked for many year but not lately. So I am looking into a new product, something safe and effective, called the Mosquito Magnet mosquito trap to protect us from the myriad of health problems mosquitoes can cause for both humans (e.g. West Nile Virus, yellow fever, dengue, and encephalitis) and dogs (e.g. Heartworms, skin allergies, equine encephalitis). And, although, dogs should be on some sort of heartworm preventative year round, the everpresent mosquito this time of the year is a reminder of how important it is to make sure our beloved bulldog is protected from the life-threatening effects of a Texas-size mosquito problem. Our heartworm preventative of choice is Ivermectin prescribed by our veterinarian. We also recommend topical preventatives that include mosquito repellents. (Featured photo is of Logan.)

The Life of a Modern Day Bulldog

Entourage Bulldogs blog is about all things bulldog ranging from breeding, raising puppies from birth until they leave our home for their forever homes, senior bulldogs, and the overall care of the bulldog breed. Bulldogs were originally bred for the sport of bull baiting in England presumably as early as the 13th century and gained more popularity during the Elizabethan era. When bull baiting was ultimately outlawed in the 19th century, bulldogs found themselves without a purpose and had it not been for a particular bulldog fancier they would have gone extinct. Imagine that? A world without bulldogs. Today, bulldogs have changed dramatically from their lean and active predecessors and are considered a non-sporting breed. The life of a modern day bulldog is spent either as a pet or show dog. We have learned a great deal about being owned by a bulldog since acquiring our first bulldog in 2005 and it is always our goal to make sure we breed healthy bulldogs and according to the standard of the American Kennel Club and the Bulldog Club of America and that new owners leave our home knowing they can always contact us with questions on how to care for this breed to assure a long, healthy life like our Mona who recently turned 11 years old. While some may perceive bulldogs as fat and lazy, bulldogs in reality can be just as energetic as their ancestors. And, in many cases, if they are not allowed to exert that energy they can become a tad bit bored. This is why we tend to ask about your lifestyle in our application. You do not necessarily have to be a homebody to own a bulldog. Some bulldogs can handle the great outdoors longer than others - with caution and supervision, of course. We tend to know which puppies, especially if they are with us longer, are more active and those who are less active. So before you set your sights on a particular puppy, always ask about their personality. More bulldogs than not tend to have a clown like personality, love to goof around and be doted on by anyone and everyone. Follow us for regular updates on our puppy availability, breedings, and more bulldog news or trivia. (Featured photo of our Mona Mi.)
