French Bulldog Harnesses
All French Bulldog, or Frenchie, owners know that these lovable companion dogs can come with many complications. While famous for their distinct characteristics of bat-like ears, flat faces, stocky builds, and front-heavy bodies - these same characteristics derived from their specific breeding lend themselves to health complications that all Frenchie owners should be aware of in order to take the proper precautions.
What Type of Harness Is Right for My Frenchie?
Beast & Buckle started out with the mission to provide the best French bulldog harnesses - a perfect combination of safety features made to ensure comfortability without sacrificing style.
All of our Frenchie harnesses are made with premium materials, including high-quality neoprene breathable mesh - which is used for all of our reversible dog harnesses - or a lightweight oxford material for our No Pull harnesses. Many of our soft padded harnesses come in reversible styles with matching cooling bandanas to help express their personalities.
These easy-on harnesses are secured with adjustable straps and quick-release buckles to ensure a secure and comfortable fit for your pooch. While we sell matching dog leashes for almost all of our cute harness designs, the sturdy D ring leash attachment on the back of all French bulldog harnesses will fit any standard dog leash.
Our French bulldog harnesses come in a variety of sizes, so whether you need one for your new French bulldog puppy or to update the style of your adult Frenchie, Beast & Buckle has you covered.
What Size Frenchie Harness Should I Get?
When determining what harness size to get, make sure you measure your pup correctly using our size guides. However, we get it - sizing for dogs can be tough and mistakes happen, especially when it comes to figuring out the sizing to slip over the blockhead of a Frenchie. That’s why we always offer free exchanges so that you can get a new size harness set for your Frenchie stress-free, and you can contact us directly with any of your sizing questions!

What Do French Bulldogs Look Like?
French bulldogs have small compact bodies, that are front-heavy and fairly muscular, with large square heads and a bow-legged gait. Frenchies come in a variety of colors, most commonly in variations of cream and light brown - many with brindle patterns or black masks. They are well known for their bat-like ears and wrinkled flat faces. Frenchie coats require occasional brushing, as they can shed a moderate amount.
How Much Do Frenchies Weigh?
On average, healthy adult Frenchies weigh around 20-28 pounds, while their English Bulldog ancestors can weigh up to 50-60 pounds.
What Health Concerns Do Frenchies Have?
While their flat face is a much-desired trademark feature of this small dog breed, dogs with this feature are referred to as “brachycephalic’. Like other Brachycephalic dogs, Frenchies have extremely narrow nostrils that can cause breathing problems and respiratory distress. If your Frenchie cannot properly oxygenate themselves, they can often overheat. Owners should be aware of this condition when exercising their Frenchie, taking periodic breaks to ensure that you are not over-exerting their respiratory system.
One of the easiest and most important ways to help prevent breathing problems for your french bulldog is using a properly fitting Frenchie harness, rather than a traditional dog collar.
Traditional neck dog collars can further irritate the breathing process, especially if your dog is known for being a puller on the leash causing a tightening on the throat and limiting oxygen flow. Beyond just breathing problems, since French bulldog’s bodies are front-heavy, and thus are usually unable to swim. When near any body of water, it is important to have a safe way to control your dog’s body and movements without causing any damage to the dog’s neck. So instead of going for the traditional collar and leash set, use no-pull dog harnesses to help safely lead by your dog’s chest on any adventure you and your pup take together!
