Full Answer

With some practice, English Bulldogs learn to enjoy a bath, but they can't swim and may drown if left unattended, according to Boise Bulldogs. Bulldogs are not tolerant of extreme temperatures because the distinctive flattened nose limits the dog's ability to pant in order to cool itself or heat cold air up quickly enough to prevent chilling. English Bulldogs are best kept indoors, which makes them perfect companions for apartment residents.
