Bulldogs have a kind and affectionate temperament. These are stubborn dogs who will often decide they do not fancy a walk today and will plant themselves as an immovable object on the sofa. They make good family pets with their docile nature meaning they get along with everyone. Some can be tricky to train as they are quite independent but most are eager to please.
