    Default Troublesome bulldog puppy

    I got a English bulldog puppy. Skye is my puppies name. He don't want to listen when he does something bad. He gets too rough with my daughter sometimes. How do I teach Skye from getting to rough with everybody. How to get him to listen and discipline him without hurting him..

    Just like a child, consistancy and training is key. I have found recently that reacting to the issue rather than yelling or showing anger at the dog seems to work better in some cases. When it gets too rough around the baby, perhaps be very dramatic about saving your baby, and really show no attention to your puppy except for "no, bad" and then give all your attention to your baby in a very dramatic fashion. This will show the pup he gets no attention from you when he does this, and the baby gets all the attention. That is no fun for the pup... Right?

    Training and learning the "no" command will also help. Always use the same command and also a hand gesture for your command.

    No worked real fast with Bella. Loud and strong. Also with Abby, we would smack a fly swatter on the counter. That loud snap got her attention and she would stop what she was doing. To this day it works. It will be a while before the puppy stage is gone. In the meantime Obedience class does work.

    Always with me

    Did you do research before adopting your puppy? Well, now that you have her... I think what worked for us was an empty soda can with a couple pennies in it. Whenever she does something you don't want her to, shake the can loudly. The loud noise will distract her.

    We have a 6 month old English Bulldog, Reggie. We have a 9 year old son and 3 year old daughter, too. At first he would "attack" the kids if we weren't right there to stop him. We have done training and have worked on some dominance techniques. These have all helped. However, when our kids start playing, running, jumping, etc., Reggie thinks it's playtime and he joins in. He jumps on them, chases them, and does all kinds of things. He thinks he's playing. We've had to work with our kids to make sure that they don't start "playing" in the house when Reggie's around because he doesn't yet understand what's going on. That has helped a lot. We really try to keep him in a different room or outside if the kids are "playing" in the living room.

    Obedience training is the key. I highly recommend taking formal training classes somewhere.

    Also Crate training between sessions of "obedience practice" would help a lot too. Read this link it's full of good ideas that could be helpful.

    I agree with most of the advices above.
    Consistancy, obedience training, crate training worked with Bono
    It's also important you stay calm but determined while you show your bull you're the boss

    Unfortunately, your bully is doing exactly what every bully does at a puppy. They nip when they play, the want to bite because they are teething. Consistancy and training will overcome these in time.

    If you are not already crate training, perhaps doing so would help. Then you can let him and your daughter play only when you are supervising.
