Exposing puppies to new experiences is an important part of their development. So we made sure that Wilson had a trip to the seaside. He was not too sure about the water but soon discovered how much fun it can be.
We walked through the fun fair and even stopped for a bite to eat, teaching Wilson all about how to behave in open spaces.
He has also visited the local town a few times now, popping into shops, saying hello to lots of lovely friendly people. He also often visits the stables to say hello to his equine friends. But Wilson’s favourite thing, is being out exploring the countryside on our daily walks.
Raising a Dogue De Bordeaux
Dogue De Bordeaux are huge dogs who love their family and thrive on Love and Kindness. But raising one is definitely not for the faint hearted.
The breed is known for being exceptionally stubborn and so, even more than ever, it is important to maintain clear, consistent boundaries. Training from day one is highly recommended. It is not only an important part of raising a well socialised dog, but its is also a fun way to bond with your puppy.
Because of their size and the rapid rates at which they grow, care needs to be taken to protect their joints. This is crucial during the first 18 months.
Feeding and Insuring a Dogue De Bordeaux is far from cheap so new owners need to be prepared for these costs.
Wilson, like our previous dog Harvey, is fed a RAW diet, because we believe it provides him all the nutrients that he needs and illuminates ingredients that are not healthy.
