    Default How excited does your bulldog get?

    Just wondered how everyone Bullys react when someone arrives at there home? Dudley seems to be getting more excited the older he gets! This is even worse at the moment as he is at week 10 of his 12 week rest period after CCL surgery so hasn't been out or mixing with other people like he wants to so when he sees anyone new he goes crazy! to the point occasionally of throwing up!

    So? whats everyone like?

    We are still working on this with our two... for some reason lately, they go crazy when company arrives at the door. So, they are now told to sit about five feet back from door and visitors are asked to not look or touch till we ay it is ok.

    they do not jump , but barking, whining, and begging for attention.

    Yes, we tell people not to look at him or give him attention until he calms down, which works a little but he still goes potty the first time they bend down to stroke him!

    Happy piddles! If you know company is coming maybe take him out for potty just before they arrive... Might help

    They both are crazy at first, but Willow takes it to the next level

    Still working on both but Nyala gets it now and just grabs a toy to bring to the visitors. On the other hand, Duke....well that’s another story. I just simply put him in his kennel for a good 5 minutes till he calms down n let him out. He goes n greet the visitor(s) and goes lay down with Nyala. By having Nyala trained, Duke will eventually notice why she’s out n not him. Nyala is his “look n learn” dog/teacher.

    We have to lock him in bedroom for some time, otherwise he will jump all over guests and cover them in slobber. He is very well behaved dog except for guests. Just too happy to meet people.

    Louie is a terror when people come over so he has to be on a pinch collar and sometimes e-collar. We can eventually let go of the leash after about 20 minutes as he calms down. But sometimes the adrenaline gets the best of him and you can usually see the crazy in his eyes.

    Question... So when his eyes goes crazy as you mentioned, you shock him before they get crazy, during?

    So when he gets crazy eyes he gets in the zone and harder to get out of. For shock collar, you give command and if he doesn’t listen then you zap and give command again. So basically not during but after failing to give command. But when he is in his zone, sometimes that doesn’t even work. He’s been getting better but still occasionally happens.

    Interesting though is last couple times, we greeted people outside in the driveway and he was so much better. It seems to be people coming through the door.

    so psychologically , what is up with this breed that strangers are the bomb? thats an honest question. I've had many breeds and they love their families way more than the stranger but not Hank. He's nuts for others. Though he has just taken a beautiful turn and usually keeps his feet on the ground and even bows a bit to be pet. really sweet but you can see how very much he'ed rather maul them.

    That’s what I thought when you said he goes into a zone it won’t work. Now you know me I just say what I have to and again always up to the owner to decide what they find is best for their dog. I’ve worked with collars like them for years on my GS. When a dog over powers the e-collar and no matter what level shock you put it and like they’re not wearing one, basically the brain has escalated to a level that it won’t come down till you shake him out of the escalation with your voice n being in his face. Then you’ll see they will snap out of it within a few seconds. A dog needs to know the difference between any negative behaviour and the shock. Basically a shock doesn’t reward positive behaviour such as sitting patiently or obeying the command to stay with “a good boy” or treat. I’m telling you this so you can keep an eye out on the signs of a brain escalation cause he has already started over powering his shock collar. I’ve been there done it.
