Right now the french bulldog breed is really popular. The average cost for a AKC french bulldog puppy in the United States is $3500. There are some french bulldog puppies that are less expensive and others that are more expensive. The less expensive puppies are typically the product of a “puppy mill” or from parents who are non-conforming to AKC standards. Puppies from “mills” are not socialized or healthy. These puppies come with a health burden and are often more costly than a puppy purchased from a reputable breeder. The more expensive puppies are typically the product of AKC champion bloodlines or the puppies have “rare” colors or markings. The average family is looking for a companion puppy. French bulldogs are great companions. Breeding french bulldogs comes at a great expense to the breeder. Proper diet, veterinary care, testing, and devotion are necessary to ensure a successful breeding. Once the puppies are whelped, both mom and puppies require around the clock care until puppies are ready to meet their forever families.
