      Hi Lisa,

      Your breeder likely has a good understanding of what works best for their pups. However, what you have mentioned is quite a common starting diet for puppies.

      If you’re concerned I would talk with your vet.

      Hi Beth,

      Thanks for reaching out and I’m sorry to hear about the challenges you are having with your Frenchie.

      We home cook all meals for Frankie so we know exactly what goes into them, this may be your best approach from a cost perspective as well.

      One way to find out which foods are causing problems is to use an elimination diet. Start with a very bland cooked lean meat and slowly start to add in rice or rice noodles, and then some vegetables. If at any point your pup gets sick or has a reaction then you can determine the culprit.

      If you think your pup isn’t getting all of the vitamins they need from this diet you can add in supplements such as fish oil spray etc.

      I have an 8 year old Frenchie . I got him at 4 months old. I feed him Orijen Six-Fish dog food. He loves it and the food is made in the US now, originally in Canada. They have other flavors which we have tried but he loves the six-fish variety.
      My vet agrees it is a good food for him. It is up there in price but I feel well worth it. Here is the company’s usa website: https://www.orijen.ca/us/foods/dog-food/dry-dog-food/six-fish-dog/ The site has alot of information on what is exactly in their foods etc. Hope this helpd.

    I have just returned from the US to Paris, France, my home. While in the States I picked up my almost 7 month old Frenchie. I did not want a young puppy to have to go through house training as I live on the 5th floor in an apartment. While I love my girl she will not eliminate outside and doesn’t always use a puppy pad inside. To make matters a bit more difficult she has come into heat. How long does it take to house break a Frenchie?
    Thank you

      Hi Billie,

      Thanks for your comment!

      Unfortunately, when it comes to potty training, it is all about patience, positive reinforcement, and repetitive habits. Keep persisting. Some pups can take between 6-8 months to properly train, and when they are put into a new environment this can throw them off.

    we just got a pied fawn frenchie, oliver, he is the sweetest thing, he sleeps a lot. i am worried though, he will not drink from his water dish he will only drink water if i add it to his food. also, we work during the day i have a puppy pin for him and a puppy pad put down plus his bed, we also have been taking him outside, my question is will he be okay if he is alone during the day while we work? once he has all of his shots i will look into puppy daycare but i can not afford it everyday.

      Hey Heather,

      Thanks for reaching out! Yes, he should be ok by himself during the day – but every puppy is different. If he’s not drinking water then monitoring the situation in shorter bursts would be preferable. With any new habit, it is best to slowly move a pup onto a new routine. A few hours here or there away from them will help them get used to you not being there. Eventually, the key thing is to give them enough food and stimulation when you are there, so they can sleep happily while you’re not!

      If in doubt, get some advice from your vet.

    I have a 8wk old Frenchie. His nose is really wet. At time he does this thing where he blows through his nose. Is it normally for him to be stuffy and have a runny nose?

      Hi Cyndal,

      Yes, this is quite a common thing for a Frenchie due to the structure of their face and nose. However, it is still something that is worth speaking with a vet about to be sure.
