San Diego French Bulldogs – About Us

We are dog lovers whose biggest struggle on the job is saying goodbye to each puppy as she or he heads home with their new family. We aim to provide our clients with the best knowledge, resources, products, and most importantly a happy and healthy puppy. A great puppy paired with our coaching and advice will give you the best possible pet owning experience and a fantastic life for your new family member. We look forward to adding you to our growing community of French Bulldog lovers.

Meet the Team


Katie (Co-Founder): Katie has always been a huge animal lover and grew up with 2 dogs; a Pomeranian named Yoda and a Golden Retriever named Apollo. Katie leads the day to day operations of the kennel and when she is not working to find the right home for our puppies, she is taking the best care of each individual puppy. Katie is the main point of contact and will happily answer any questions you may have.

Ian (Co-Founder): Ian grew up always surrounded with pets, but always had a special love for his first dog who was a half-wolf half-German Shepard named Brisco. He has also owned a Pitbull and Lab mix, a Corgi, a Great Pyrenees along with a handful of cats over the years. Ian originally founded Ian’s Puppies back in 2012. Then he moved with Katie to San Francisco and started the kennel, Bay Area Bulldogs, which specialized in French Bulldogs only. After building a great reputation as one of the best breeders in the Bay Area, Ian and Katie got married and moved to San Diego in 2018 where they officially started San Diego French Bulldogs. Ian manages the health and breeding programs along with many of our outreach events.
