    Barley was a tough one. I started sleeping next to his crate which is not in my bedroom. At first I listened to him and let him dictate when to he wanted to go out. He was training me. Then I moved back to my bed and started setting my alarm. I started with very short intervals. I was up every hour and a half. It was just like having a flipping baby. Then I set my alarm later by 30 minutes each week. It took awhile before he coukd get past four hours. Sleeping in late on the weekend? Forget about it. Once I got him sleeping through the night then we had to tackle the issue of peeing in the crate. It was painful. He got lots of baths. On the plus side barley has never had an issue with chewing. He loves his toys. He is potty trained, crate trained and part of the family. Would I do it again? Yup. He is snoring next to me on the couch right now as I type this. He is such a part of my family.

    If you pick the water up that is restricting it, we keep water down for our pups and all our bullies 24/7. It does not prolong their potty training.

    OH, I am a first time bulldog owner too...Kimo is 14 wks. SAME EXACT situation. I too have no idea what to do about his peeing in his crate. And I too let him out every 3 hrs at the most, sometimes 2 hrs...I'm thinking since the breeder had the pups sleeping on a comforter in a kid swimming pool thing in their room, he's learned to go on BEDS and BLANKETS...ugh...I have never had so much laundry, and I have 2 kids! LOL! My other dogs were so easy to crate/potty train...My solution so far this week is to take the blankets out and have nothing, so far it has been ok...but has peed as soon as he walks out the crate. NO!!! So...let's hope someone can help us!

    I've had Agnes for 4 days now and with each day that passes, she getting more and more confident, but she's chewing everything in sight, including me! I'm doing my best to say no and redirect but I can tell it's going to be a long road!

    Emma was nearly 6 months old before she was able to really hold her bladder. Puppies, like babies, take time. Some are faster than others and each one is different.

    Wilson was completely trained by 4 months. Big difference in the two.

    Lola is 10 months old and still will have accidents and Lucy is 12 weeks and still pees in her crate 3 night out of 7. It just takes time but really I don't think they are really able to hold it tell a year by then they should be trained and be able to hold it while your away.
