Can anyone give me some advice, tips, or just basic instruction on potty training my little bulldog. I have tried the crate method, but I think I might be doing something wrong. He's already 4 months old, and spends a lot of time in his crate because he's quick to have an "accident" if not under constant supervision. How have you tried your baby?
hi hope i can help i been breeding English bulldogs for years and they are stubborn lol OK after they eat or drink take them out side on a leash and have them go to the bathroom and always have a treat in ur pocket or hand and they only get it when they go bathroom. take a few with remember bullies LOVE FOOD !!! and say bathroom or pee/ poo u pick but stay with the word don't change it. and do this every few hours as they are young. i also belive in crating them when you go to bed or to the store.rember if they can just turn around in it it is the right size. never to big or it will not work, they dont like to step in there wast,yet lay in it. if you dont want to buy a smaller one then you can always use a shoe box or books to make it smaller. big enough for them just to turn around.that is it. till they get biger. when u get home take them out in a small area (kitchen) that u can clean up if the should go poo/pee. if they do go poo/ pee when u are there clean it up with a paper towel and set it out side were u would like them to go and just walk them over there. they Will smell it. most of thing they will go near it. and have the treat ready on hand. and say god after words. and i not sure were u live but i know in Wisconsin we have pet smart that offers doggy training classes like for $50- 100 $ but let me tell you it is well worth it. and they have a teacher teaching u and the dog. never hit at a dog. clap load and say no remember all puppies are like kids there going to have accidents give them lots of attention during this training,patience,and keep on a schedule hope this helps. all in good time, i know sounds easier then it is but soon. www.wolfecreekbulldogs.com
