Gotta love a bullie! Ours is eight years old and I must say, never had much of a training issue with him as a pup. I think the best way to train is just to realize who is doing the training - obviously the Bulldog is training the master :) WE moved a couple of years ago and in the old house had a living room that was never sat in so in this smaller house, we put this sofa in the living room and the family room couch in the recroom. He is allowed to get on the rec room couch not the living room one. I have always been impressed with how he never jumped onto the one in the livingroom.....until one day. He jumped up, I yelled at him, he sat and stared at me. I did make him get down but from that day on he thought he could rule and he was allowed on that couch. We solved the problem by putting pillow on the couch so he can't get up - as I said, they train you.
Seriously though - as a pet they are great. WE have never had a chewing problem and besides this issue he has been pretty good with following rules. He walks only when he wants to but I can live with that. If I don't want him down a hallway, I only have to put something on the floor, her will not go over it as it is out of place so it scares him - such a coward. All I can say is love her and pick your battles and change you habits and not the bulldogs - it will just be easier and you will both be happier

I use repetition and small food treats - Short time frames

10 months old and a lot of puppy attitude in Csonka
I try to reward the good and distract the bad
Watching for to tired or hungry - triggers more "bad" behaviour
When I get frustrated he is sent to his pen - time out for both of us
LOTS of love-hugs pets and touch for grandkid practice

bullies have a strong personality. if they don't want to do it. forget it. it won't happen. i use treats. sometimes it works other times not so good. she will grow out of the noise issue.

I'd love to have this team share any tips you've found to be helpful in training our little Bullies. I've found mine to be pretty independent. She also is very timid so any type of loud voices only serve to scare her.

Ideas welcome!
