    Default How did your bully adjust to a move?

    Chubby is doing well but kept me up pretty late sniffing out every inch of his new digs...including every box or bag I moved or unpacked...he is so nosy or shall I say curious!!!

    that is all normal.... remember bulldogs are OCD and he will need to get back into a routine. when we moved, we brought Banks to the house (being built) three nights in a row, before we moved in and just let he run around and check everything out. she settled in nicely after only two days

    When I first brought Hershey home after picking him up from @2BullyMama he was very aggressive towards Chumley..but he was stressed from a long drive and I'm sure from leaving his family and familiar surroundings. He settled down very quickly and has adapted better tha could ever be expected!

    We did the same thing that Christine did, we brought them to the house before we moved in. We got the keys to the new house from the lawyer on a Friday afternoon, and my friend and I brought the cat, the dogs and the bird over to the house, and let them explore. We set up their crates up away from where all the moving in and out would be going on the next day, so they wouldn't be underfoot or stressed out. My friend and I slept over, and in the morning the guys brought the truck and moved all our stuff. It worked out well, and it did take them a few days of sniffing and exploring before they really settled down, but they were fine.

    Poor Barkley has had to deal with a lot of moving over the past few weeks! My husband and I moved from Phoenix to Houston and are in the process of buying a house, so we're staying in a hotel until then. We've had to stay at 3 different hotels so far, now we're in the last one until we move into the house. Each time we go to a new room he just sniffs a little and checks it out but seems happy and excited. He seems to always love new people/places/things so I knew he would be fine with everything.

    Barkley has been so great the whole time, he loves getting attention from everyone at the hotels when we take him out. I'm working remote from the hotel room so I'm with him all the time and he seems to be fine with everything! I'm sure he will be super happy though when we finally get into the house and he has room to play and a yard again!!

    We have moved several times with our bullies, and they always did very well, always curious to check everything out. The last time we moved, our house has hardwood floors and BeBe did not like them what so ever and stayed in her room for about a week. We had to make her come out just to got potty. She finally got used to them and is fine now.

    @boomsboo...Chubby is doing well but I can tell he is still a little concerned about what's going on...I happened to have the whole week off so I was able to give him some extra TLC...but I'm sure Tank will be okay just extra sensitive if he is anything like Chubby...♡♡♡♡

    I am already stressing about the same thing!!!! Bocephus is freaking out about Momma packing up the house here and I haven't even found our new place in Nevada yet! Just getting our home now ready to show has been unsettling for him and he has tantrums a few times a day

    @Bulldozersma...Chubby is a little fussy but I have been trying to give him extra attention now that we are moved in but it will probably take much longer than usual to unpack but that's okay with me as long as all my babies are comfy!!! He is chewing my Nike's as we speak but I don't care because he is happy♡♡♡♡

    I feel the same way! I'm going out to Nevada in a week or so to continue looking for a new perfect home for my bulldog baby (and my shoes). It's a six hour drive when I finally move him out there, already stressing about it. Bocephus is being extremely bratty with the packing - I currently am sporting a black eye and a cut across my nose from a head butt last night
