I have an 8 month old Male...i've had him since he was 3 months old...
He's always been a bit 'hyper'..but lately he just is Out of Control. (you should know he got neutered 4 weeks ago).
I've always wanted a dog...and fell in love with reading about Bulldogs and not to mention how ADORABLE! Lately though, i'll be honest, i don't feel like i'm enjoying this puppy the way i had hoped.
I've been to obedience training - it's not that he doesn't listen - it's not that he has accidents all over the place..once in a while he does, but not often at all.
What i'm at my witts end about is that he is just so damned hyper! This dog cannot sit still. He's just all over the place. I figured the older he got, the more relaxed he'd be.
I am home full-time, and i leave him out of his crate a good chunk of the day and most of the time i have to yell at him "no!(to this or that) Stop! Down! Sit!" he cannot for the life of him lay down and just relax for more than 5 minutes at a time.
I jsut don't know how much longer i can deal with this without totally losing it on him.
When Do Bulldogs calm down? I was under the impression that Bulldogs, of all dogs, are the most laid back , relaxed dogs ever.
When do I talk to my vet about this dogs Exictability? Even when he goes to the vets they have to hold him down, he is Soooooooooo wired!!!!!!!!
What can i do? What can be done?
I need all your advice before i lose my mind.
Thanks so much
