    Default Bulldogs and belly rubs???

    Neither one of my bulldogs like to have their belly's rubbed? Is it a normal bulldog thing or mine are the exception? I manage to turn them and they act like I'm torturing them and do not enjoy it one bit.. I have had many dogs before that would flip upon my arrival so I would rub their tummy.. so this is weird.. NEITHER OF THEM.. other than that they LOVE attention and to be petted and kissed.. so weird, I tell u

    All my dogs like their bellies rubbed. Actually they loved to be rubbed all over. Thank goodness my husband helps with with the rubbing cause my hands and arms get tired. Although I have to say I cannot make them rollover for a belly rub. They have to voluntarily roll over on their own. BabyGirl is the only dog that rolls over on command because I have to wash her girly bits but after I'm done I give her a good belly rub and massage her chubby legs too. I really enjoy this part cause she so reminds me of my kids when they were babies. I guess that maternal instinct is still in me.

    HRH has learned to accept belly rubs, but she didn't act like she had ever had one when we got her. We have to physically flip her over for one and for Bruce she will lay and fall asleep while he rubs her belly. For me she doesn't want to stay so long and usually struggles to get back over fairly quick, but I think it's because she prefers my butt scratches.

    Vegas will take a belly rub, but he most likely will stand up to get his butt scratched, he is a butt man all the way!!

    Chula loves belly rubs, and will be more than happy to flip over and get one. In fact whenever she sees the lady who lives downstairs she gets so excited she does a belly crawl toward her, then flips over as soon as shes close enough!

    Bea didn't use to like them... as a pup she would fight being rolled over in play. I started picking her up and putting her on my lap - seated like a human baby - and then rubbing her ears/head until she relaxed. I did it while sitting on the floor too. She couldn't get away until she relaxed enough to have "floppy feet", I called them. This turned out to be a good thing for Bea. Now, she'll pretty much flop right over for me when I say, "Let me see your tummy" - to check for hives and such. I'd KNOW never have gotten this far with her without doing that trust exercise with her as a pup. Bo, on the other hand, came with "floppy feet". hahahahaha

    They are truly two different dogs in every way possible.

    Frank would rather have his butt rubbed, but does like his belly rubbed as long as he is sitting up. He hates being on his back for longer than a few minutes. The only time he is on his back is when he is rolling around and kicking his legs in the air.

    Tank loves any rubs or scratches! He goes nutty whenever I scratch an area that he can't quite reach...he leans into it and falls over. LOL
