We are a canine breed club, located in Northern England and Scotland, for all Frenchie enthusiasts that own, have owned or would like to own a French Bulldog.
Even though we are based in the Pennine's and Scotland we still welcome members from where ever you may live. If distance means you are not able to take part in any of our events, our online community can provide you with information, support and advice in most Frenchie related aspects.
