Bulldogs are not outdoor dogs; they are the ideal house pets and are perfect for couples with children. Bulldogs
may be naturally gentle and patient with children but, they still require proper socialisation and training.
This training is necessary in order to avoid any conflicts in the house and to avoid any messes when you come
Training a bulldog is best performed when your bulldog is still a pup. If you got the bulldog as an adult,
training is still possible but it might take you more time and patience.
Typically, training the bull dog will involve the following: potty training, basic obedience training and leash
training. Depending on how your bulldog behaves, you might also consider some advanced training.
Potty training is one of the first
things your bulldog should learn. This will help prevent incidences of soiling in the house and instil proper
manners to your bulldog early in life. When potty training, choose a spot where your bulldog can eliminate.
Every time the dog needs to potty, he/she should be taken to this spot. Any messes the dog makes in any place
other than the designated spot should be well cleaned. This is because dogs can pick up even the slightest of
scents and will return where they have eliminated before to potty again.
Basic obedience training is necessary for discipline and also to
enhance the relationship between you and the dog. In obedience training, the dog should learn to respond to some
basic commands such as “sit” “heel” “come” and “stay”. A well trained bulldog is easier manage and to keep out of
trouble. When teaching these commands, it is important to keep the commands short and simple. Your dog will not
understand what you’re trying to say when you let out a string of words.
Demonstrate to the dog what each of the commands mean in order to establish a communication link. If the dog is
having a hard time, then have a time out and try again after some time. Commands should be given out once, be
assertive when you do and loud enough so that your dog hears. Do not shout or yell.
Also, another characteristic of bulldogs is that they will ignore your commands if you let them. The dog
should know that you are the master and your word is law. This way, the dog respects you and knows to comply with
commands when you issue them.
Tips in bulldog training
- No one understands your dog better than you do, thus no trainer is better than you when it comes to
training your bulldog. Commit some time to train your dog at home or in sessions elsewhere.
- Positive reinforcement (treats, verbal praise) works best when training. Avoid using negative
reinforcement such as hitting the dog, locking him up or shock collars as a form of punishment when the dog behaves
- Begin training on a good note and end on a positive note, this way the dog will look forward to future
training sessions and is under less stress.
- The key to success in training your bulldog is patience, consistency and perseverance.
