@Vicaroo1000 , I tried this with Aldo today, took him about 10 min to relax, he didn't resist entirely because I had been doing similar exercises, but he still needs time to fully relax.. he is scared and dominant at the same time.. @desertskybulldogs if I ever get another bulldog puppy I know exactly where to go! I think Aldo missed out on socialization as a young pup because since he was a young baby he has always hated being on his back and very scared of new situations..

By the way, Pookie dropped out of the class. He wouldn't stop barking at other dogs and his human caregiver had ZERO control over this wire haired maniac in spite of much one on one time with the instructors. I would guess Pookie never saw mom as a leader...not for a second. ha ha
Doing it correctly is important though. You don't want to injure the dog or yourself.
