Behaviour Help

Training a Bulldog can often feel like it's 2 steps forward and 1 step backwards. The background of your dogs breeding will play an enormous part in how your dog behaves as an adult so it's even more important to make sure you get your puppy from a good responsible breeder:

Kennel Club Registered as an Approved Breeder

Breeding standard colours

Raising pups in an environment that exposes them to everyday things

Preferably a show breeder

Avoid:

Breeders that used their own dogs or a friends dog (unless they are a very well established and well respected breeding kennel)

Breeders trying to create specific colours outside of those considered standard

Breeders that have never shown a dog or have no intention of showing a dog

Training Basics

Teaching a dog how you want him to behave should simply be about teaching him what is "normal". You don't necessarily have to shout, tug or constantly tell your dog off to acheive this. In many cases how you behave around your dog is key as he will almost always follow your lead.

If you need to use corrective behaviour, keep the atmophere calm and be persistent - it's not always a quick fix.

Although not currently fully registered as a dog trainer, we have over 20 years of bulldog experience and are in the process of working towards Kennel Club Accreditation. We've seen aggressive dogs that are actually aggressive and agressive dogs that just pretend to be. If your bulldog is playing up - drop us a line and we will do everything we can to help you work it out

The most important part of any training is consistancy - things won't change overnight but we can hopefully help you find a way through
