Shopping for a new puppy can be a difficult decision, often it comes down to deciding between two very similar  breeds. French bulldogs and Pugs are two similar breeds that can be difficult to choose from. Here are some key differences between the French Bulldog and the Pug.

Origins

The French bulldogs are successors of bulldogs that were owned by an Ancient Greek tribe, the Molossians. The first of the breed was brought into existence through crossing bulldogs from England and local ratters in France after their owners’ immigrated to France for better opportunities.

The Pug originated from China. They were presented as prizes by people from royal families. In the 16th century, they were imported to Europe and they became popular among the royals.

Puppy training

Training French bulldog puppies is not as challenging despite the fact that they quickly lose interest in repetitive activities. This can be solved by having shorter sessions with lots of treats. With consistency puppy training for French Bulldogs usually takes about 6 months.

Puppy training Pugs is more challenging and requires more patience and time. They are stubborn and independent and get bored more quickly. It is advisable to train your Pug during their first six months.
