Yes, French bulldogs like to be picked up. They love nothing more than to be cuddled. Just make sure to pick your dog up in a manner that’s safe and comfortable for them.
To pick your French bulldog up safely:
- Start with a verbal cue such as ‘up!’ so you don’t start your dog.
- Place your stronger arm underneath its body, between its front legs.
- With the other arm around its backside, cradle its back legs and stand up slowly.
Young children may need to be taught that a French bulldog should never be picked up by its neck, its collar, its tailor its legs, as any of these methods could cause pain or injury.
