French bulldog's tails are not docked or cut in any way like in some other breeds. Docking is a cosmetic practice for no medical reason and I am not a fan of this practice. French Bulldogs are naturally born without long tails. They are genetically bred to have short, stumpy little tails.

It's commonly believed that dogs wag their tails to convey that they are happy and friendly, but this isn't exactly true.

Dogs do use their tails to communicate, though a wagging tail doesn't always mean, "Come pet me!" Dogs have a kind of language that's based on the position and motion of their tails.

As a general rule of thumb, you should feed a French Bulldog puppy aged 8 to 12 weeks around 1 and a half cups of food a day, in 3 separate meals. As your Frenchie gets older, the number of cups of food you should feed them will change.

No problem. These dogs go without tails (or much of a tail, anyway), and they like it that way.

While many dog breeds have traditionally had their tails docked, these 7 breeds are born without a wagger.

They include the French bulldog, Boston terrier, Welsh corgi, and some lesser-known beauties, too.

Here's the long and short of it.

Historically, tail docking was thought to prevent rabies, increase a dog's speed, and prevent injuries.

For hunting and herding breeds, tails could collect burrs and foxtails, causing pain and infection.

The longer tails of herding dogs could also be caught in gates behind livestock.

Tail docking is the term given to the surgical removal of puppies' tails for cosmetic purposes.

There are over 70 breeds of dog that traditionally have had their tails cut off a few days after birth.

The reason some breeds and not others are docked is simply because of the fashion set for that particular breed.
