The female will only breed when she goes into heat. You can tell she is going into heat by the swelling of the vulva and vaginal discharge. Then put them together every other day until she is out of heat.(it will probably be 1-3 weeks because it varys in dogs) She will not allow breeding for the first few days and some will not allow it until 2-3 weeks in! So you just have to wait until she is ready. The male will breed any time she will allow it. Also if you dodn't know the answer to this question then you probably don't know how long they are pregnant, how to tell if they are pregnant, the care during this and nursing time, what to expect in labor, how to make a whelping box, etc. Failure to know these things can result in death. Before you consider breeding know all these things and more if you can. If you breed make sure you find promised homes for the pups before they are born so they don't end up unwanted pups in a pound. Make sure the parents are not related, are up to date on their shots, and are checked for all diseased notorious in this breed. Those are the minimum standards. Good luck to all! For info on whelping and making a whelping box go to http://www.hilltopanimalhospital.com/reproduction.htm and if you want to know how far along your dog is in her pregnancy go to http://www.schaferhund.com/pregnancy.htm

actually, the second week of the "heat" is when she is most likely to get pregnant. Just like with a human there are certain days when she is most fertile. BUT you do not breed bulldogs, you are supposed to have them artificially impregnated by the vet.Male Bulldogs do not have the stamina to breed. If you are a breeder than you should know that bulldogs do not have sweat glands and they should NOT be allowed to get over heated. AND a female should not have the puppies on her own, she has to have a c-section. DO not consider breeding this type of dog unless you know what you are doing,  you may loose all the puppies and mom if you are just in it to  make quick $$$$.

As was mentioned you will be able to tell when the female is in season because of the swelling of the vulva.  It is almost impossible for the bulldogs to breed naturally.  The male bulldog is very heavy chested and the female is unable to hold the weight of the male bully.  It is better done by an experienced breeder and the best way for both male and female dog is artifical insemination.  Your work is only beginning... the female most times is unable to deliver naturally due to the large heads of the pups.  Also, the pups usually are not kept with the mother due to her laying on the pups.  Every three hours pups must be put with the mother and then removed to a warm area that is dry and clean.

most bulldogs can't breed w/o help because of their size and health risks.  not to mention bulldog puppies are not like any other puppy, they are completely helpless for 1-4 weeks of their life, requiring incubation.  feeding is another issue due to the size of an adult dog and many moms don't produce milk.

Angela is correct, I am a breeder as well.  Just breeding a bulldog can result in death, almost always have to do an Artificial, then...90% of the time the mom has to have a C-Section, then... most bulldog moms aren't gentle with their pups and you get to stay up all night for 2 hour feedings and making sure she doesn't roll over on them.  It is not an easy road, bulldogs are the hardest dogs to breed, birth and raise.

Breeding Bulldogs is very complicated.  You should get assistance from a Vet the first few times.  For better results, Bulldogs should be bred by artificial insemination. It is very difficult for Bulldogs to breed by natural means.  I have also had better results with more puppies resulting from artificial insemination.  Bulldogs often give birth by C-section.  Involving your Vet throughout the process will assist in setting up a time for the C-Section.
