Majestueux British Bulldogs
Hi, I'm Tricia C.
Welcome to Majestueux Kennels, home to the British Bulldog! We are situated on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, and over the past years our home has become a haven for our show dogs, and family pets. We are long-time established breeders and showers,. Our British Bulldog breeding program has been developed from select lines, selected for health and breed standard, to produce top quality show dogs and pets. Our dogs are champions, and are from champion dogs that hale mostly from Europe and UK as well as USA, South Africa and New Zealand. All of our dogs are in exceptional health, they have undergone extensive health testing and free from conditions that are too often associated with the breed.
Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
We take the pups out to meet guests & neighbors, take them for rides in the car, and try to expose them to as much pleasant human contact as possible. We also socialise the pups by having them interact with other dogs within our home and move them into different yards to get them used to different environments with different objects.
All our puppies come vaccinated (C3), wormed (at 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks of age), and vet-checked (at birth, and then again at 6 and 8 weeks of age). We also conduct extensive research into all lines that are a part of our breeding program, checking immediate relations, as well as cousins, aunts/uncles and beyond, as thorough as we possibly can. Our current owned breeding stock have all been DNA-tested for genetic diseases (see our 'Health Tests' list below for more information), and all main registered dogs and pups have Canine DNA Profiles which certify the parental lineage noted on their papers. None of our breeding dogs have had any breathing, heat, skin or respiratory / skeletal issues, or have needed to undergo any breed related surgery. Our dog have also undergone various health tests (these vary dog to dog) including Hip, Spine, elbows, thoracic inlet, patellas. We do live in hot, humid Queensland, and our dogs spend a lot of time outside in the heat running around our acreage.
They are raised in the home, and have access to various parts of the house and house yards, ensuring that they are used to normal household noises. They are raised with various sound effects playing in the background, to help prepare them for the rest of their lives. Our pup day-yard is a sectioned part of the house that has various stimulating areas to encourage the pups to become confident adults. They are also socialised with our dogs, including the adult British Bulldogs of various ages.

About the Breeder
Hi, I'm Tricia, from Majestueux Kennels! We are renowned as a British Bulldog breeder, but have recently extended our breeding program to Chows. Our breeding program has been developed from select lines, selected for health and breed standard, to produce top quality show dogs and pets.
Why we got involved in breeding
As an established British Bulldog breeder, we started breeding Chows because we were always standing in front of them in the show ring, and we became obsessed with them! We were looking to introduce a second breed to our show team, and the Chows are almost the opposite to Bulldogs in personality! A little more aloof, but just the loveliest dogs - we just adore them!
Our special touch
We breed family pets that are also show quality, and take great care to do so. We are of the strong belief that even if you are looking for a pet - not a show dog - that you should still have the opportunity to have 'show quality'. Dogs in our breeding program have been show champions, or come from champion dogs that hale from Europe, USA, UK, South Africa and New Zealand.
