Bulldog Lovers

We Love Bulldogs of all Kinds

Hi and welcome to our Bulldog Lens. We are trying to get across the message that Bulldogs are great dogs. I have an American Bulldog cross Staff called Skye, this is her in the picture. She is a fantastic, fun loving and gentle dog.

Big strong dogs do need to be handled correctly and every dog owner should consider how they train their dog. The responsible and loving thing to do for you, your pet and for all those around, is to ensure you have a well trained dog who knows how to behave.

It is really sad that bullbreeds have the reputation of being bad, dangerous dogs...it is not the dog generally, it is the people who choose to own these types of dogs!

Be a responsible bullbreed owner, lets work to change how the public view these dogs.

Train your dog properly.

The Ins And Outs Of Effective Dog Training

Most people love dogs, because of the love and enjoyment they can bring. There is a lot of extra work involved with owning a puppy though. Training is absolutely necessary. Use the tricks written here and you will surely be able to train your dog easily.

Old habits die hard, even in dogs. If a dog's owner allowed it to jump on people or sleep on furniture, it will take a long time to teach it to change this behavior. When you address bad behavior at a young age, they won't develop into habits.

Be prepared to reward the dog as soon as it completes a positive behavior. It is important that your dog is able to establish a connection between the command and the action that gains a reward. This will teach your dog what behavior is correct and expected.

If you are consistent, it is possible to teach a dog to delay responding to nature's call. Try taking your dog outside each hour when you're at home. When he goes potty outside, tell him he did good. If your dog has an accident in the house, never harshly reprimand it. Screaming at your dog only frightens him, and is not going to make him understand that the behavior was wrong. Make a habit of walking him around fifteen minutes after eating or drinking anything, and after coming out of his dog crate.

Trying to understand how your dog is feeling. It's easy to get mad if your dog is not doing the basic things you teach it. Don't give up- think like your dog! This could help you overcome training hurdles.

Teach your dog a way to notify you when he needs to use the bathroom by using a bell ringing technique. Initially, jingle a bell whenever the dog is let out, and in time, the dog will inform you of his need. Even the most stubborn dog is intelligent and capable of learning new things, so it's very likely that this method will soon produce the desired behaviors in your pet.

One of the most important things to teach your pet is to listen to your voice. The guide above has outlined good tips that you could use in training your dog. Even if your pet doesn't perform admirably during the first session, forge onward. If you want your dog to become truly obedient and on his best behavior, you must demonstrate that you are willing to devote your time and energy to helping him.
