True fact: you have to be 10% smarter than the machine you're trying to operate. IMHO, that ding dong wasn't INTELLIGENT ENOUGH to be that close to your Remi. Glad the gf was nice, hopefully she brings her dogs by herself next time!
Tried to keep my mouth shut or should I say keep my fingers from typing LOL but OH MY GOSH I would have had a field day with that so called "trainer" my hat is off to you for being able to hold it together and not roll that dude in a mud puddle! I had such a great experience with my trainer because she owned pit bulls, boston terriers and a pug and "bullies" where her passion but with that also knew that bulldogs look at training differently then most dogs, she said they are smarter then most because they weigh the need of the command with what they are doing at the moment oh and the reward for doing what you ask LOL all of the bulldogs I've owned and have been around have been super smart ... that guy was probably just not up to the level of trainer it takes to train a breed that has a will of its own!
I suffer from "M.B.S." (Multiple Bulldog Syndrome)
because one bulldog is NEVER enough!!
