The I Am Bulldog Nation is a collective of bulldog lovers, owners, and families that are all committed to improving the lives of bulldogs through sharing, caring, and connecting.

The IAB Nation recognizes that bringing a bullie home is more than just getting a family pet. Bullies become the glue that knits families together through unconditional love and support.

When life gets overwhelming or hard to handle, our bullies are the companions that are steadfast and long-staying. They greet us with big goofy grins, huff at us when we haven’t let them outside, and yes, love us through every mood of the day.

The precious, unconditional love that bullies have for their people is why they’re so dearly treasured. It’s the recognition of this love that binds bullie lovers and families together into the I Am Bulldog Nation. Yes, we want to be a part of each other’s magically messy lives. YES, we want to hear about the joys and jaunts of bullie ownership and most of all, Y-E-S we want to share in those most precious moments that make bullie-life so special.

The I Am Bulldog Nation is a community that loves bulldogs as much as you do. #IABNation

“These dogs are a tremendous blessing! No matter what kind of day I’ve had, these guys make me feel like a rock star. Their wagging tails and slobbering mugs let me know that everything is going to be alright.”

Our Story

Mike and Eva have both been animal lovers their entire lives.

As a kid, Mike used to hide away stray dogs and sneak food from the kitchen. Miles away Eva was busy rescuing one mangy, down-trodden dog after another, much to her parents’ dismay. Well, as the story goes, this continued into adulthood for both Eva and Mike and really ramped up when their two paths crossed in 1987–and the rest, as they say, is history!

Together Mike and Eva have loved and cared for hundreds of dogs of many breeds. About 25 years ago, they decidedly narrowed their attention to bulldogs and committed themselves to improving the health and happiness of every bullie they encountered.

This collective passion and dedication has led to the establishment of I Am Bulldog, The I Am Bulldog Nation, and IAB LIFE Canine Coaching. Today, Mike and Eva are fully committed to guiding bulldog families in how to better understand, care for, and support their loving companions.

“If you are thinking about getting a Bulldog, you need to talk to Mike at I Am Bulldog. He is extremely knowledgeable about the breed and we have learned so much from him. We purchased a puppy from him in March 2019. We went to Mike’s house to meet our puppy’s parents when she was two weeks old. We noticed that the mother and father had a great temperament. Our dog is no exception – sweet, funny and a little stubborn 😀. She is a beautiful, healthy girl.”
