Bulldog Event and Social Gathering MUST-DO MUST-HAVE

Due to the unique medical sensitivities of the bulldog breed, particularly ones concerning airway problems, it’s crucial to make specific preparations and exercise foresight to ensure the safety of rescue events, social gatherings, and outdoor bulldog group activities.

If you are planning a bulldog event, you should adhere to this safety fowling shortlist.

Bulldog Rescue Event Safety

Bulldog Event and Social Gathering: TRANSPORTATION

Offer a shuttle “Uber service” from the parking lot to the event, recognizing that the distance could be exhausting for many bulldogs and stressful for some, especially on a hot and humid day. It can be anything on wheels (electric, handheld 4-wheelers, etc)

Bulldog Event Safety ADEQUATE HYDRATION:

To ensure the well-being of bulldogs, who can quickly overheat, it’s essential to provide adequate hydration, water, and water bottles.

Bulldog Event Safety COOLING AREA and SHADE

To ensure the well-being of bulldogs, who can quickly overheat, it’s essential to provide ample shade at strategically accessible locations throughout the event area.

Bulldogs and French bulldogs are prone to heat stroke, in addition to water and shade you can add ice and fans

Bulldog Event and Social Gathering Safety HEALTH SCREEN:

If there are going to be physical activities, such as

  • play
  • parades
  • racing

I recommend a health screening for those suffering from  potential airway issues  such as Brachycephalic Syndrom

You should screen those bulldogs exhibiting stridor and stator, noisy bully breathing, and those who seem to stress out with even mild activity or excitement.

Whenever feasible, ensure the presence of a veterinarian and veterinary nurse on-site, equipped with an emergency medical kit. This proactive measure can address health concerns or emergencies that may arise during the event, providing attendees with peace of mind regarding their pets’ well-being.

Safety Steps for Bulldog Events: FOOD STATIONS:

Many owners find themselves standing in line with their bulldogs at food stations and vendor locations, often in exposed and crowded areas, causing stress to the pets.

To address this, ensure there are

  • Offer sufficient locations to help keep short lines
  • Offer “baby seating” for the pets, allowing them to wait comfortably while their owners are in longer lines.
