We had been looking for a French bulldog for a while and came across barking bulldogs when searching for a reputable breeder. When some puppies became available we were able to view the pictures online and choose one and also see videos of him growing before he came home to us. He is such a good quality puppy he’s settled in nicely and we love him! Nathan also does weekly zoom calls so we can ask any questions around training etc which has been really useful. Would definitely recommend as a breeder if you’re after a French bulldog.

When my partner and I decided to bring into our family a Frenchie I googled the top 5 breeders in the UK and Barking Bulldogs came up as one. I quickly navigated on their website and I was so happy with what I read that I decided then and there to call Nathan up. I was so lucky as Nathan did have a litter and puppies were available. We really wanted a boy and we chose him over the cute picture that was posted on the website. Never regretted it   From that moment on till the very minute we picked him up Nathan kept us updated , gave us so much help, support and advise, also sent us pictures, videos and even live video calls where we could see our little boy growing day by day. Nathan is also an animal canine behaviourist and his advice has been and always will be gratefully brought on board .

Thank you Nathan for bringing this little wonder into our lives, we can’t be more grateful. He is an amazing, healthy and loving puppy

Got my Frenchie from them. beautiful puppy happy and content help and advice always available
lovely knowledge people, would recommend to family and friends. definitely made the right choice.
thankyou Nathan for everything

“I first contacted Barkingbulldogs by email and Nathan responded very quickly. We were looking for a little girl “Frenchie”. He was very helpful and informative,  without being at all pushy which we liked.
He kept us up to date with our puppies progress before we received her which included texts and video calls which was not only a comfort, but fun on the video calls to see her live so to speak.
I have no hesitation in recommending him and his company and we adore our new edition to our Family.”

Hi Sam & Nathan,
I would just like to give you some feedback from purchasing cloud from yourselves. I started by googling French Bull Dogs for sale and your website popped up I clicked on it and liked what I saw,
I came across Cloud by scrolling down the picture and then looked on your reviews and still liked what I saw.
My partner and I decided to contact you and place a deposit.

From the Day we made contact I could not ask for better service from better breeders that have now become friends
We received videos of cloud, Facetime calls, photos and daily updates on him on how he was getting on until the day he got delivered.
We also received everything that we needed from Sam & Nathan regards to a puppy pack and all the info we was unsure about.
I also could not thank Sam & Nathan enough for letting us have their favourite boy we also thank you for delivering him to us.
If anyone is wanting to purchase a French Bull Dog we recommend Sam & Nathan 100 per cent.
You would not receive the service we received from anyone else.
Thank you to you both fo the service you provided and the continued support we could not ask for anything better.
Kind Regards
Carley Watson, Ashley Harcastle & Family

From start to finish, Nathan has provided an exemplary service. Not only have we had the pleasure of dealing with a complete professional, but we’ve formed a great friendship.

Nathan is a superb breeder.

His dogs are second to none in temperament and quality. Our boy couldn’t be gentler, smarter, more trainable or more good natured. He’s also such a fantastic looking dog that we get daily compliments walking him down the street.


From first contact, through any problems, Nathan has been so fast to respond, helpful and knowledgeable. He’s dedicated to giving his dogs the best homes and makes you feel like part of the family.


We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone and we do all the time! If you want top quality, incredible frenchies raised with the best care, don’t go anywhere except Barking Bulldogs. Five stars all round!

From the moment I contacted Nathan until the day he drove half the length of the country to hand deliver our puppy, he provided the most outstanding puppy buying experience.

I received weekly video calls, constant updates, photographs, and videos of our growing girl until the time she came to live with us.

Nathan gave amazing advice on training, behaviour, and diet and continues to do so.

Lola is the most beautiful, happy, healthy, sweet-natured puppy and there is no doubt this is due to the excellent care and love that she experienced before coming to join my family.

I can't thank Nathan enough for all that he has done and continues to do. Not only have we got the most perfect and precious new family member, but we have also made a good friend too.

We picked up our puppy Arnie on 4th August 2017, right from the very start of viewing him up until he was ready to leave Sam and Nathan gave us endless helpful suggestions, advice and updates. Arnie is growing very well and he is very chunky, we have stuck to the raw food diet as suggested and he loves it! He is perfectly healthy and a very happy, playful and cuddly puppy. We absolutely love him and can't wait to see him grow even more! We can't thank Sam and Nathan enough for all their support and help, and knowing they are always there if ever we need advice is wonderful.

Thank you for your message and continued support. 


Our beautiful puppy is settling in really well and house training is almost spot-on! A few accidents here and there but to be expected - she is a credit to your breeding/rearing expertise. We are very pleased with her. 


We have named her ‘Aria’ (the Italian word for ‘song’) - the music teacher in me couldn’t help it. She is already being spoilt rotten and being loved to death! 

Just after a day she has melted our hearts and we can’t wait to share in her journey as she grows and have a lot of cuddles, snuggles and laughs along the way - she is SO funny and SO perfect!


Congratulations on breeding such fabulous puppies and a massive thank you both and your family, who have brought us such joy!

Our journey from initially enquiring about a French bulldog puppy up to the collection of our pup Betsy, was faultless. Nathan and Sam were very accommodating, answering all our questions arranging viewings, and regularly sending updates on her growth and development.

We can’t thank them enough for their advice and support they clearly are passionate about French bulldogs, and nothing was too much trouble. We collected Betsy on the 16 th of August 2018 and have a beautiful adorable French bulldog, she has an amazing personality and is growing fast. I would not hesitate to contact Nathan and Sam in the future for any further advice.

I bought my puppy jasper from Samantha and Nathan a few months ago he is a fantastic-natured dog, loving and has a brilliant personality. Sam and Nathan offered all the support to me if I needed it just to text or call them, as I was a little nervous as I hadn't had a dog for 8 years so felt a little rusty, that was a great comfort. I would highly recommend them as breeders they know what they are doing and are very experienced. Thank you to you both

Susan Savage

Brilliant pictures, we appreciate you keeping us in the loop :) we are really looking forward to bringing this little champ home :) thanks again for the updates :)


I picked up these furbabies in June, originally me and my partner were after 1 but after looking at the photos we decided on taking the last 2 boys as I could not bring myself to separate them. Sam and her husband have been amazing before, during, and after getting Elvis and Dave, I feel like they have become friends, not just dog breeders. They have been amazing with advice and keep in regular contact with us and offer fantastic support.  The pups were in amazing condition and we have kept up with the raw food as you can see by the pictures they have grown incredibly. I would like to thank Sam and her husband for helping us and letting us take them both home. 


Hi, we are back home with him. He wasn’t sick in the car on the way home was just sleeping most of it. And now he’s just playing with his toys. Thanks again for everything.

Jade Spenser

Amazing! Thank you so much for the update, love that! She looks gorgeous! Can’t wait to get her! I’ve already bought her everything pink ready! 


On 12 Aug 2019, I contacted through the website via email, I had longed for a blue French Bull Dog for years and wanted to ensure I had done my research into the breed and also to find an established professional breeder too. 
The website's professional look grabbed my attention and I started to read. The information provided is to such a high standard, qualified breeders really stood out for me, kennel club registered, health checks , original paperwork and not forgetting the many qualifications that are on show from Canine behaviour training to nutrition, first aid, animal nursing and welfare animal psychology and a degree in Animal behaviour the list went on, I knew at this point these breeders had a wealth of knowledge and had their pups best interests close to their heart.
degree in Animal behaviour the list went on, I knew at this point these breeders had a wealth of knowledge and had their pups best interests close to their heart. 
I received a quick response to my email, from the lovely Sam and Nathan who thanked me for getting in touch, and advised they were awaiting a litter if I wanted to be held on the waiting list, I jumped at the chance. 
On the 9th Sept the litter arrived, I received pictures and videos of the pups with their mum and dad it was just lovely to see their progress, I made my choice a Blue Boy!
There was never a long wait for responses, I was kept up to date weekly by email with pictures and videos of my growing puppy, I could call, text or email Sam and Nathan, nothing was ever trouble, I felt a real warmth from responses I received. 

On the 2nd of Nov 19, I collected my long-awaited for Frankie!!  my heart just burst with pride and love, he is such a well-behaved, pup and at 9 weeks is already doing well in the toilet training it is clear to see he has come from love care and knowledge. 

He is so loving and obedient, fantastic around my kids stole our hearts for sure!! 


It's great to know also that Sam and Nathan are only at the other end of the phone, for any questions I may encounter in the future with Frankie, continued support just shows how much Sam and Nathan just love what they do and that the best start and continued growth and development is always a priority. 

So Sam and Nathan, thank you ever so much x

With lots of Paw Love 

Ashley, kiddo

Nathan, we can’t thank you enough, the support you continue to give us throughout the course of our dog training is exceptional. This man really knows his stuff about dogs and people, how we are with our dogs and how we act. If you are looking for a behaviourist, Nathan is the one to call. Not only have I gained knowledge about my dog, but I have also, I have gained knowledge about myself. Nathan thank you and we look forward to seeing you again. 

Jordan, Lauren & Idris.

Nathan has provided my German Shepherd (Buzz) and myself with excellent training and advice.

Which has given me positive guidance and transformed my dog's behaviour in a very short space of time, in a positive way and I am grateful to Nathans commitment to his work and would recommend his services to any dog owner in need of his help

Michael McGuire

Very understanding Behaviourist. We have learned so much from Nathan and his training methods. We have never felt left alone and was able to achieve great results in a short time period. We would highly recommend to anyone that is having an issue with their dog.
Thank you Nathan.
