Understanding Bulldog Training Behavior Problems

Sep 16, 2008
The Bulldog is a very sweet natured dog and has one purpose in life and that is to be a devoted companion. They were originally used by butchers to bait bulls, but after that sport ended only sweet tempered Bulldogs were bred. Bulldogs are easy to train if you use the correct methods. They are eager to please and should be trained at a very early age.

The most important thing to do in Bulldog potty training is to make sure your puppy's crate is a place where he or she likes and never use their crate as punishment. Do not get a crate that is too big for your puppy or he can potty in a corner of it. Make it cozy with a blanket or special toy. Putting a towel or sheet over the crate is another good idea to enhance a cave atmosphere. This is an atmosphere that the Bulldog puppy is accustomed to. This environment will make your Bulldog feel secure.

Even though Bulldogs are sweet natured dogs they still need structured and disciplined training schedules. Potty training your Bulldog puppy as soon as he arrives in your home is the best idea. You must take your puppy outside in the morning as soon as he wakes up. Praise him as soon as he does his deed outside and take him back inside. Feed your Bulldog puppy and then wait no more than ten to fifteen minutes and take him outside again. Dogs usually have to go about fifteen minutes after they eat.

When you bring him back inside have playtime with him for about thirty minutes and then back outside until he does his deed again. This time when you bring him back inside put him in his crate for a nap. This routine on a consistent basis will easily potty train your Bulldog. If he should have an accident and potty inside your house only scold him if you see him do it otherwise scolding your Bulldog later will not help with his training.

Bulldog potty training will be a positive experience if you keep the main rules in mind. Always give positive reinforcement with treats when your puppy does his deed outside. Always give negative reinforcement when your Bulldog puppy has an accident in your home which you see him have.

Negative reinforcement and positive reinforcement are very important in Bulldog potty training. Consistency with your potty training is very important. His feeding schedule should also be on a consistent schedule. This way he will be going outside to potty at the same time everyday after he eats.

It will take your puppy several weeks to catch on to this training because he is still a baby, but the supervision and consistency will work together in the end. When a puppy goes outside after he eats at the same time everyday he will automatically know what to do in a few weeks.

Patience in Bulldog potty training is something each owner needs to have a lot of. Your relationship with your Bulldog is going to be a happy one, but potty training is a very long first step.
