Are Frenchtons Good Guard Dogs?

A small yet sturdy crossbreed, there is nothing dainty about the Frenchton. Boisterous and confident, these dogs think they own the world and will rule the roost in any home. Playful with children, they do require supervision around little ones as they can be quite rowdy when excited. Rarely shy around new people and always eager to make a new friend, the Frenchton makes a poor guard dog.

Frenchtons as Watch Dogs?

They enjoy tummy rubs and cuddles from children and adults alike. Due to their friendly nature, Frenchtons are not the best guard dogs. The ideal owner of this dog is someone who stays home constantly.

Are Frenchtons Aggressive?

We could do with some further information to establish what has triggered this change in behavior? What is your dog’s history? How old is she? When you say aggressive, what behavior is she displaying? Do you have other females in the home or is this when you take her for walks? There is always a reason behind all behavior. Has she had a bad experience with another dog? Has something recently changed in her life? Have you had a checkup with the veterinarian to rule out any health issue that is causing her to behave in this way? There are plenty of strategies we can look at to help your dog, so please feel free to give some further information.

Frenchtons Background

Family and Bonding

“Great experience. The breeder was very responsive to our questions and everything went as expected. We love our puppy!” – Michele H.


Frenchtons enjoy company and don’t like to be left alone. Another dog or even a cat will help meet their companionship needs. They’re typically friendly with dogs and animals.

Frenchton Nature

For a Frenchton, you can expect a typical lifespan of 8 to 15 years. A little longer than their Frenchie ancestors likely due to the mixed breed nature.


Frenchton’s love people, but this doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be socialized from a young age. They should especially be socialized with other animals that live at the house from a young age, so they learn there is nothing to be afraid of.


Frenchtons as a Pack Animal

You guessed that right. Frenchtons are no less than French bulldogs. They are big clowns packed in their small stature.

Physical Traits

Despite the small size, Frenchtons enjoy walking and exercising. If the weather is pleasant, take your Frenchton for a walk around the block. If it’s too hot or cold, get your fur baby moving in the house. They enjoy playing games, so find something your pup loves to do and do it together. They usually need at least 30 minutes of active time each day.
