JAKEISGREAT bully sits via internet. Literally...all day long I get the same text. "sleeping".
With that being said, another thing you need to watch out for...the toys you leave out for her during the day. Just about every single toy has "do not leave dog unsupervised with toy". They say that for a reason. There are countless people on this very forum who have had to have things surgically removed from their bulldog's tummy. There are even more people who have been shocked with the things that come out their rear end....that they had NO idea was even missing. So, just be careful of what you leave her with. Rest assured..if she is in her kennel, she is guaranteed to be safe. (remove her collar too...we just had a bulldog get her collar buckle stuck in the wire crate..and if her momma wouldn't have been right there, probably would have ended in a tragedy)
Having a bulldog is like owning no other breed of dog. You literally have to treat them like babies.
Yep, Wilson and Emma sleep all day and when I get home they're non stop. On the weekends they rarely sleep.

EBDR35. I gave the Dynamic Duo a bath yesterday and really scrubbed it up good, using the Zoom Groom. You should have seen the piles of hair in the tub at rinse time. It was AWESOME -- and they love it. They have a pink one and they see that thing come out and you can tell they are excited about it. We've only had a couple of warm days here but I take it out there with me while I'm tanning and they're playing in their pool. Really gets off the hair.
A bonus: the little Oregon Juncos were out there picking up the dog hair for their nests later on. I'm an avid birder so this pleases me beyond belief.
I also have a rescue, she did have accidents in the house....she's 3....I took her out like i would a puppy even though she didn't have to go that often. I also walked her and crate trained her. It's been about 4 months now and she hasn't had a accident for months inside. I think a crate is the way to go....mine's afraid of the dark.
I have found the most important thing about house breaking is the routine. They have to depend on you. Not hope you are going to take them out; if they can't rely on a schedule they will just go wherever. Mine are not perfect, we are still working on it, but morning potty is pretty settled (wake up, eat, walk, = potty ). I still get up in the middle of the night to let one of my dogs out to the bathroom. The other one goes at the 10pm walk. Routine, routine, routine !! I know its diffiult but if the dog goes to the bathroom in the house its the humans fault ! They are the only species on the planet that cannot relieve themselves when THEY want and are punished for it and expected to hold for an entire day. good luck
