just to say hi

Hi, im new to this site and new to being a bulldog owner. Ive read everything i can about cleaning them, feeding them ect. Ive also met a owner and a breader both have told me different, breeder told me mainly bad stuff, like how they can turn (which had my patner worried as we got kids) and owner told how lovely they are, his child plays with his 7 yr old bully (and even sits on him) which made made my patner feel abit more relax. Anyway we have a 10wk old bitch and she is lovely, allthough shes in the nippy age, i just want to ask other owners if they have any tips and not about the nipping

Welcome to BDW

Many here can give you good advice on your pup. Training classes help also.

In my experiences most puppies of all breeds tend to do this.  You just need to act like they are hurting you when they do this and say no.  Actually pretend they are hurting you.  They are smarter than you think.  Most important thing is you take control of the situation and not let them feel like they are controlling you or your partner.  Good luck and enjoy your baby Bully.

I've had five bulldogs....

I've never had one bite, even a little bit. They are so sweet and so wonderful animals. Be sure to train them, during this nippy age, never to put tooth to human skin. The best way to train them is praise, praise, praise and treats when they are good and a "Bad Dog," in a loud, firm voice.

Good luck. You can come here and ask us anytime you need something.
