Do French bulldogs like to be picked up?

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.
