Riviera Kennels Breeding

Sharon has made it a mission to breed a small amount of high-quality French Bulldogs. In the last 10 years, the kennel has had very few litters of pups, and they have been the finest AKC french bulldog puppies. Some of the dogs at Riviera Kennels are showing in the “bred by class” at AKC shows. (Bread-By is an AKC show class for dog breeders)

Sharon loves the breed and believes that the french bulldogs should conform to AKC standards. She only has the proper AKC colors for the show ring. Every client who buys a french bulldog goes through a screening process where Sharon matches the best puppy with the proper home. It is important to her that every bulldog gets spoiled and goes to a loving home.
